The KOB range of short-stretch bandages now includes a Basic, a Core and a Premium variant. The entry-level model is the economical Roselastic® economy 260. It is made of 100% cotton and is a strong, elastic textile bandage with woven edge.
The KOB classic is the Roselastic® 530 short-stretch bandage. It is also 100% cotton, can be stretched in length and it has a strong compression effect. It has been established as the standard in compression therapy for many years.
The new Roselastic® flex 520 is a bi-elastic variant with a strong compression effect. It is also 100% cotton and can be stretched approx. 90% lengthwise and approx. 40% sideways. This makes it easy to position and shape.
Short-stretch bandages are used primarily for treatment of varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis in the arms and legs, vascular insufficiency or severe stages of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), such as venous ulcers and oedema. In contrast to long-stretch bandages, the reduced stretching properties make them more suitable for mobile patients, because they ensure muscular contractions while walking thereby reactivating the muscular pump to increase the return flow of venous blood to the heart.
The three variants have different advantages, also in terms of their economy. We would be pleased to send you a sample of our products, which you can request at here .
