These crepe bandages are ideal for various uses for minor injuries. They provide light support for sprains and strains and in addition, they are also suitable for holding dressings in place. Manufactured from natural, unbleached, 100% cotton, they are both woven and elasticated to provide a comfortable fit.
When used in the treatment of sprains and strains, crepe bandages aid in the compression stage.

The crepe bandage provides extra support for the area, including supporting damaged tendons and muscles.
