The upper extremity bandage system includes: shoulder, elbow and hand bandages.
The shoulder joint builds the shoulder bone (humerus) and shoulder blade (scapula) . The bandage of the injured shoulder begins with a circular bend from left to right around the upper part of the upper arm, then descends under the uninjured armpit, climbs over the shoulder to the back and winds to the opposite armpit, then the winding over the chest returns to the injured shoulder.
The shoulder joint is placed so that the last coil covers 1/2 or 2/3 of its width.
The elbow joint is a complex joint that builds the shoulder bone, the collarbone and the ulna. Bending of the elbow joint begins with 2-3 turns of the “turtle” bend over the elbow recess, and continues with circular coils that alternately line the forearm and shoulder, with a cross on the elbow recess. A triangle (Esmarch’s) scarf can also be used to bend the elbow joint.
The bandage “eight for the fist” begins with circular fixing layers just above the bones of the breakfast, ie the wrist. Then the bandage is directed along the back of the hand, make a half turn on the surface of the palm and again on the outer surface of the hand, and by crossing the first coil, return to the opposite end of the joint.
