Tubigrip Elastic Tubular Support Bandage
The Tubigrip Elastic Tubular Support Bandage is a multi-purpose tubular bandage. Tubigrip provides tissue support in the treatment of strains and sprains, soft tissue injuries, joint effusions, general oedema, post- burn scarring and ribcage injuries and is also used for pressure dressings and arm fixation.
Tubigrip is made from cotton with covered elastic threads laid into the fabric to form free-moving spirals. The fabric is available in two colors – natural shade and flesh shade.
Tubigrip provides lasting, effective support with complete freedom of movement for the patient. Once the bandage has been applied, covered elastic threads within the fabric move to adjust to the contours of the body and distribute pressure evenly over the surface. Fitting is quick and easy. Tubigrip stays securely in position without pins or tapes, unlike conventional crepe bandages.
As it can easily be reapplied after washing, without loss of effect, Tubigrip is particularly useful for outpatients and in the community. Tubigrip reduces wastage, as only the exact amount required is cut from the roll. Apply with a 2–3cm overlap. Tubular Bandage Applicators may be used to make application easier over bulky dressings or painful joints.
Tubigrip is loaded onto the applicator, which is then positioned over the affected area. The end of the bandage is held in position while the applicator is gently removed, leaving the Tubigrip in place. Form a double layer by doubling back the bandage. Ensure that the upper edge of the second layer is taken 2–3cm higher up the limb than the first.
Benefits of Use:
- Provides comfortable, effective tissue support
- Easy to apply and reapply
- Full range of sizes to suit any application
- No pins or tapes needed
- Washable (without loss of effectiveness)
- Choice of two colors for patient acceptability
- 1. Cut Tubigrip to twice length required for limb, allowing an extra 2–3cm for overlap.
- 2. Pull Tubigrip onto limb like a stocking.
- 3. Double Tubigrip back over limb. Ensure upper edge is taken 2–3cm higher up the limb than the first.

What soaps do you recommend to reduce bacteria as much as possible when washing Tubigrip? I have antibacterial hand liquid soap, Hibilens Foaming and regular All-Free detergent. My problem is that I have long term weeping from lymphedema with open wounds so the fubugrips ae changed by me at least daily and because they get soaking wet spots where the lymph fluid soaked thru my wound dressing pads. Plus, I am trying to up my sterility factor because I keep getting staph and other bacterial skin infections (both legs). So I would like am information to supplement advice from my Wound care team. Thanks~
