Orthopaedic Padding Bandage

Orthopaedic padding bandage, also known as orthopaedic padding or undercast padding, is a soft and cushioning material used in conjunction with a cast or bandage to provide additional comfort, protection, and support to the injured area. It is particularly suitable for use as undercast padding with both plaster of Paris and synthetic casts, allowing moisture to drain away from the skin and reducing the risk of skin maceration and sensitivity, whilst retaining its shape and loft, even when the padding becomes wet. It is typically made of a non-woven fabric or cotton material that is lightweight, breathable, and hypoallergenic.

Features of Orthopaedic Padding Bandage

  • Supplied individually wrapped for optimum infection control.

Optimum Infection Control

1. Soft and cushioning: Orthopaedic padding bandages are made from soft and pliable materials that provide cushioning and comfort to the injured area. This helps to reduce pressure points and minimize discomfort caused by the cast or bandage.

Soft and Cushioning

2. Breathable: The padding is designed to be breathable, allowing air circulation to the skin. This helps to prevent excessive sweating and moisture buildup, reducing the risk of skin maceration or infection.


3. Absorbent: Orthopaedic padding bandages have the ability to absorb moisture, such as sweat or exudate, keeping the skin dry and reducing the risk of skin irritation or breakdown.


4. Conformable: The padding is easily moldable and can be shaped to fit the contours of the injured area. This ensures a snug and comfortable fit, providing optimal support and protection.


5. Non-allergenic: Orthopaedic padding bandages are typically made from hypoallergenic materials, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or skin sensitivities.


6. Lightweight: The padding is lightweight, which helps to minimize the overall weight and bulkiness of the cast or bandage. This can improve patient comfort and mobility.


7. Radiolucent: Some orthopaedic padding bandages are radiolucent, meaning they do not interfere with X-ray imaging. This allows for proper visualization of the underlying injury without the need for removal or adjustment of the padding.

It is important to note that the specific features of orthopaedic padding bandages may vary depending on the exact product. It is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper use and application.
