Which width or length is optimal for me?
It depends on the type of use, for wrists and ankles narrower bandages (4cm), for arms and legs the wider bandages (8-10cm) are to be used.
With the length there is the possibility to choose between 3.5m stretched to 10m stretched. Here again it depends on what should be bandaged, only the calf or the whole leg.

Why do I need a long-stretch bandage and a short-stretch bandage?
Long-stretch bandage: The elastic property brings a constant pressure with it, which is almost the same at rest and under load and therefore has a low stiffness index (SSI) (no or only minor massage effect). Such an effect is particularly recommended for less mobile patients who cannot operate their calf muscle pump.
Short-stretch bandage: Short-stretch systems deliver a low resting pressure and a high working pressure, which creates a significant massage effect when walking. This massage effect reactivates the effectiveness of the muscle pump by promoting the venous flow from the surface to the depth. Short pull systems are therefore very effective in treating severe stages of CVI, especially in treating venous leg ulcers and severe edema, because they significantly improve venous return and lymphatic drainage. They are effective in sufficiently mobile patients and are particularly recommended for severe edema.
