Buying dressing material
In order to be able to treat wounds properly, it is important that you first clean and disinfect the wound thoroughly. Then, depending on your needs, you can choose the appropriate dressing material to protect the wound and support the healing process. For smaller injuries, such as cuts, plasters are usually sufficient to cover the wound. However, if the wound is more extensive, it should be protected from contamination with a bandage or bandage. In the following we offer you an overview of our dressing materials.
Adhesive bandages are bandage material for applying and fixing functional bandages. The self-adhesive bandages allow you to work quickly and efficiently. They are also excellent as an initial measure for light sports injuries and for support and fixation bandages with light compression.
Underpull bandages are thin foam bandages and serve as a skin-friendly textile base for functional bandages. They are applied to protect the skin under tape dressings or are used to cover abrasions under plasters and adhesive bandages. Underpull bandages are cohesive, which means that they adhere to themselves but not to the skin.
Plasters are particularly useful for protecting small cuts, scrapes and bruises from dirt, germs and moisture. They close the wound securely and enable uncomplicated wound healing. In our range of plasters you will find different sizes, shapes and materials of these little helpers.
Padding material is used as a protective and compression material for bandages and splints as well as for wound treatment. It prevents painful pressure points on bones, joints and skin tissue when bandages are applied. Due to its skin-friendly material, padding material allows for a long wearing time without irritating the skin. To keep the padding in place, a fixation bandage is also used.
In the case of injuries and open wounds, compresses protect the wound from external influences. They are used for bleeding or oozing wounds or cut to size to be used as swabs. The absorbent material can stop bleeding and, when used in combination with an ointment, support the general healing process. Compresses are available both sterile and non-sterile.
Bandage scissors can be used to safely cut through bandages, plasters or dressings or to cut them to the right size. In contrast to classical scissors, bandage scissors are equipped with a safety nose on the scissor blade. This makes it possible to lift the bandage and cut through dressings without damaging the patient's skin.
