|Application Technique Lower Leg
|Application: The materials should be pre-prepared
to enable rapid application of the bandage. All the necessary materials should
be placed within reach to avoid hold-ups in the procedure.
The patient should be in a position which is comfortable to him/her and the person applying the bandage. This may vary depending on the extent of the injury, the diagnosis, the treatment method and the patient's condition.
Materials required: 1 x 7.5 cm and 1 x 10 cm Delta Cast Conformable polyester support bandage and hydrogel-coated casting gloves, adhesive bandage, tubular bandage, Delta Rol S padded wadding or toweling tubular bandage, bandage scissors, felt-tip pen.
This bandage ends proximaly about 15 cm above the malleoli.
Long-cast-boot by Sarmiento: Here the cast gets applied up to the proximaly about 10 cm above the rim of the patella. After modellation it gets cut so that uninhibited stretching and bending in the knee is possible. The kneecap runs in an arch around the femoral condyles and the upper rim of the patella.
Achillestendon orthesis: Allows early functional treatment from a dorsaly splint cast-orthesis. The plantarflexion of the foot can be controlled, if wanted, while the dorsal extension of the foot can be avoided at the desired ankle.
