BSN Tricofix Cotton absorbent Stockinette
BSN Tricofix is a lightweight, 100% cotton absorbent stockinette which
may be used as the first layer of bandaging for treatment of Lymphedema
and other chronic swellings.
Tricofix protects the skin surface under compression, zinc gel, or
adhesive bandages. This stockinette is the innermost bandage layer in
lymphedema treatment applications and rests directly against the skin
where it functions to wick away moisture and provide adherence for
additional padding and compression bandages.
It is also useful for
enclosing foam padding structures for ease of use in the home setting.
The close-meshed, particularly skin-friendly material can be stretched
to approximately four times its original width and narrowed down again
by pulling lengthwise. The dressing remains comfortably smooth even on
body parts that are difficult to dress.
