Elastic bandage applicator

Sleeve applicatorSandra has a skin complaint that requires a full-length elastic bandage on her left arm. Limited dexterity in her right hand makes applying the bandage difficult.

A length of plastic drainpipe was selected. Sandra feeds the bandage over the top of the pipe using both hands. She then inserts her hand into the top of the pipe and the bandage grips her wrist. Pushing her arm fully into into the pipe unfurls the bandage onto her arm. The bottom of the pipe rests on the floor, giving her something to push against.

The bandage can be placed on Sandra’s arm easily and without discomfort.
