Isoband is one of those versatile bandages that you will find uses for if you have it on hand. It is a woven, lightweight, latex-free bandage that is relatively short-stretch and can be sterilized, washed and dried flat without losing any of its therapeutic properties.
Isoband is available in 15 and 20 centimeter widths. The 15 centimeter is excellent to use as a fixing bandage. If you are using foams to pad a large leg, for example, Isoband works well to hold the foam in place while providing a good under-surface for the Comprilan layer, reducing slippage and bandage migration. The 20 centimeter width is the bandage of choice for truncal and abdominal bandaging as well as for affixing foams to extremely large limbs. Both sizes can be used to wrap a hip spica, depending on the size and needs of your patient.
Isoband can be a crucial part of a good multi-layer lymphedema compression bandage. It can provide stability and add structure and compression. You will find it has many uses in the clinic, especially when dealing with leg and truncal lymphedema.
