Hand Wrap is a knitted cotton fabric designed for constant unchanging pressure. Elastic bandages tend to tighten and "band" into tight strips causing swelling distally. Gauze wrap tends to loosen and shift with motion and time. Hand Wrap holds position and the pressure you apply remains quite constant over long periods.
Hand Wrap is now available in 2", 3", 4", and 6" widths pre-packaged for office or hospital use.
Apply fluffs or bulk dressing primarily in the palm and on the dorsum until the anterior, posterior bulk exceeds the width of the hand. This converts the pressure from laterally on the index and little finger metacarpals to even anterior posterior pressure as the Hand Wrap is applied.
