Title: SURGICAL BANDAGE WITH STABILIZING ELEMENTS
Abstract:
The present invention pertains to a bandage for improved monitoring, healing and pain- reduction of a wound. The bandage also increases compliance for patients and for caring personal. The bandage is useful with most any wound being exposed to pressure, trauma and/or irritation. The bandage is especially useful with incisions upon surgery, preferably incisions upon abdominal and hip surgery as well as incisions upon dorsal surgery. The above features are accomplished by the wound being visible through the bandage, external pressure on the wound being redirected to areas around the wound not being compromised by surgery and possible exudate from the wound being absorbed within the bandage, as well as pressure from the bandage being exerted inwards against the wound edges thereby improving the cosmetic result.
