Some recent forum posts on bandaging and compression, the degree of compression being the key. Problem is, how to gauge this correctly?. Got an email this morning from Tacmed and under their new section, they have the Setopress bandage. http://tacmedaustralia.com.au/shop/setopress-compression-bandage/
This is a long bandage (3.5m) and will be enough for a whole limb. So only need to carry one. The clever thing about it is that due to the printing of small rectangles on the material, which stretch into squares when the correct tension is applied, bandaging will be easier. There are 2 different coloured squares for differing levels of compression.


I haven't used these before, but will be ordering one ( they are $19 on the website, possibly cheaper elsewhere) Edit: $15 delivered on this website:

Not sure it will replace all of the bandages I currently carry (3) as sometimes a crepe bandage use useful for other roles.

Nice, I've been meaning to grab some bandages specifically for snake bite treatment and these look like a good option.

We have discussed those bandages before on this forum and they are certainly a good starting point. That's a very good price though.

Well this is embarrassing. I've just done a search and it was me who started the other thread. :non sono stato io: The link in that thread however is now dead.

Brumby53's comments make for good reading.
