Thonic bandage has been designed for an easy, fast, and safe application. Both sides can be in contact with the patient's skin and our patented system allows the outer inelastic layer to mechanically limit the stretchability of the inner elastic bandage, which eliminates the risk of applying dangerously high pressure onto the limb.
To facilitate the application onto the limb, it is recommended to wind up Thonic bandage under tension by stretching it up to the maximum during its winding (Fig. 1).
If Thonic has been wound under tension, it can then just be unrolled around the limb (Fig. 2). Otherwise, Thonic bandage must be applied with maximum stretch (Fig. 3).
Start the application at the base of the fingers or toes (Fig. 3 & 4).
For models with the anchor point, the patient's thumb (Fig. 5) or big toe (Fig. 6) must be inserted into the anchor point, making sure it does not create any constriction or discomfort for the patient.
The recommended application technique is spiral bandaging along the limb with an overlap of 50% (Fig. 7).
If the perceived compression is too high, especially for upper limb, Thonic bandage can be applied, under the guidance of a fully trained specialist, with a reduced overlap (Fig. 8).
Any other application technique or overlap, which can create local higher pressures must be carried out only by fully trained specialists.
The end of Thonic bandage must be secured preferably with an appropriate adhesive tape (Fig. 9).
