The length of the elastic bandages manufactured by Lauma Medical varies from 0.6 m to 5 m; available in three widths as a standard: 8, 20 and 12 cm; percentage composition: 96 percent cotton, 4 percent elastane. Moreover, thanks to the special manufacturing technologies elastane yarns are completely covered by cotton yarns thus ensuring that user’s skin does not have any direct contact with synthetic yarns and enabling skin to breath. As a result, the product life can be extended as elastane is not destroyed by moisture or heat, and patient’s skin surface is not irritated even by prolonged wrapping treatment. 

Use of Lauma Medical elastic bandage

Elastic bandages are intended for use in the compression therapy to prevent and treat varicose veins, avoid thromboembolic complications after surgery, as well as a part of multiple treatments of thrombophelitis, and in traumatology for compression wrappings when plaster cast has been removed.

Malfunctioning of peripheral vein muscles and valves is one of the most common causes of varicose veins that leads to congestion of surplus blood quantity in vein lumen. As a result, veins expand and shift closer to skin surface. 

The therapeutic effect of Lauma Medical elastic bandages is based on their ability to provide assistance to weak veins in normal reduction, and prevent their filling with too much blood that may cause pains, especially after strain.
