Hospicrepe® is a white, textile elastic cotton crepe bandage that provides light support. It has about 110% elasticity for Hospicrepe 233 and 120% for Hospicrepe 239. The crepe character is achieved by highly twisted 100 % cotton yarn in the weft and non-elastic yarn in the warp. It is used to support all general bandage requirements, and relief bandaging of distortions, dislocations, and fixation. Hospicrepe can be washed and sterilized. Hospicrepe’s woven edges help reduce bandage fray.
