Self adhesive bandage wraps are made from a special non-woven material that adheres to itself. This eliminates the need for medical tape or clips to keep the bandage in place. Bandage wraps are thin, lightweight, and breathable. They are commonly used to support sprains, hold dressings in place, and secure IVs. Self adhesive wraps can also be used to secure splits, dressings, catheter tubing, and hot and cold therapy products. Depending on how tightly they are wrapped, they can provide compression to an area of the body as well. Coban and CoFlex are two of the most popular brands of self-adhering bandage wraps.
