Caresia Bandage Liners are standard-sized bandage liners, which simplify complex multi-layered bandaging protocols, while enhancing therapeutic outcomes in the active phase of therapy. Caresia Bandage Liners replace stockinette and multiple layers of padding or foam. Patients simply don the Caresia and then, using a spiral or figure-eight wrapping style with 50% overlap, wrap over the top of the Caresia with short-stretch bandages. The short-stretch bandages should be applied to provide a snug fit, but not tight. Caresia Glove Bandage Liners are excellent for those patients who have swelling and tissue induration in the digits. Many therapists recommend this unit for their post-surgical hand patients and patients with arthritis or lymphedema. Please note functional hand usage will be restricted. Hand unit may be worn under the Caresia Arm Bandage Liner.
