Medical polymer bandages can also be used in surgery, orthopedics, varicose veins of the lower extremities, to prevent blood circulation caused by swelling of the limbs, and bandages for swelling diseases after the plaster of limb fractures is removed.

When the patient uses the medical polymer bandage, it is best to wear protective gloves to prevent the bacteria on the hands from infecting the wound. Before using a bandage to wrap the wound, you can use cotton sleeves or cotton rolls on the dressing area as a liner. You can use more cotton sleeves or cotton rolls to protect the wound in areas that require increased pressure or thin and bony. So as not to cause the wound to deepen due to some accidental touch, or because of the fine seams between the bandages, causing bacteria to enter the wound and cause infection.
