Bandaging or Wrapping for Lymphedema

Bandage Supply offers an extensive selection of bandages and accessories to make treatment and compliance as easy as possible.

Most bandaging starts with a tubular stockinette or gauze to help protect the skin. Next, most doctors and therapists will apply a layer of foam or padding. This layer helps evenly distribute compression. It can also target stubborn fibrosis or hardening. The final layer applied in bandaging is the short stretch bandages, which applies compression to the limb.

How long should bandaging be worn?

Most patients wear bandages 23 hours a day, until swelling has reduced enough to wear a compression garment for maintenance. Your doctor or therapist will recommend a full plan for you based on your specific medical needs. Looking for a trained lymphedema therapist? Just check the LANA website.
