Its breathable design helps protect the adherence of the gel when the skin is damp and allows the dressing to remain securely in place, often for many hours.

Velcro® ‘control’ strips prevent the elastic roll from accidentally unravelling and secure the bandage throughout the application process. Designed with direct input from some of the most experienced combat medics in the world, no detail has been left out. From the adhesive ‘brakes’ on the elastic bandage that prevent accidental unrolling, to the zig-zag packed gauze that easily feeds from the bandage, this is the most comprehensive feature packed bandage available.

The Prometheus Pelvic Splint has been designed for pre-hospital use, and is light and easily adjusted by one person. The soft material, with no internal stitching, minimises pressure points and reduces the risk of pressure necrosis.
