AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer of Elastic Crepe Bandages.
Elastic crepe bandages, due to the weave of materials, provides lower sustained compression as compared to a normal elastic bandage, but increased tolerance to skin, comfort, and breathability. Elastic crepe bandages are usually made of PBT, cotton or spandex material and they are reusable as well as washable. They are ideally used for post-operative or injuries of soft tissue fractures and joint swelling. They are similar to crepe elastic bandages as they also treat muscle sprains, bone fractures, and holding dressings in place, but with different properties for slightly different applications.
They are commonly available in retail stores as they are widely available in different sizes and colors and are majorly used in hospitals, clinics, sports facilities, rehabilitation facilities, and households. They should only be applied by trained professionals as the level of compression and wrapping technique should not be too tight to cause unintended consequences which may not only delay healing process but also can cause further harm to the injury.
