Short Stretch

Short-stretch bandages are made from cotton fibers, which are interwoven in a way that allows for about 60% extensibility of its original length, whereas long-stretch bandages, commonly known as “Ace” bandages contain polyurethane, which allows for an extensibility of more than 140% of the bandages’ original length.
The high working pressure of short-stretch cotton bandages provide the necessary solid counterforce and make them the preferred compression bandage in the management of lymphedema. Due to the low resting pressure of short-stretch bandages, tourniquet effects are prevented – provided these bandages are applied correctly.
