What is an Elastic Bandage or Bandage Wrap For?
Elastic bandages or bandage wraps are great to use as compression for RICE treatment. RICE stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation, and is a common first aid practice in treating bruises and sprains. The pressure of the bandage helps to reduce swelling while it is wrapped around a sprain, bruise, or strain. Because elastic bandages help to limit swelling, they are great at helping the injured area feel better. They are especially effective when used the first few days after an injury.

How to Wrap an Elastic Bandage
Elastic bandages come in multiple lengths and sizes to be used for different applications. Most elastic bandages come in a roll with metal clips to secure the bandage in place. Elastic bandages help to provide support and reduce swelling of an injured limb.
Using an elastic bandage wrap is easy and can be applied to an injury from the comfort of your home. Follow the below steps to secure an injury with an elastic bandage.
  • When starting to wrap a limb, have the beginning of the elastic bandage roll facing up. Start by wrapping the bandage around the affected area twice. Make sure to leave your fingers and toes exposed when wrapping.
  • Once wrapped around the affected area twice, change the wrapping direction to create a figure-eight pattern with the bandage. The figure-eight pattern will secure the injury by helping to limit its movement. Continue with this motion until you have used most of the bandage.
  • Next, fasten the metal clip to the fabric to secure the bandage in place. Do not wrap the bandage so tight that it cuts off blood flow. If the injury gets worse, you may need to seek professional medical help.
