Fast'n Go FAQS

What are Fast'n Go Hybrid compression bandages?

Fast'n Go Hybrid Compression Bandages are a revolutionary single-layer bandage system that combines the benefits of both inelastic and long-stretch bandages into one easy-to-use solution. They provide effective and comfortable compression therapy for a variety of conditions, including lymphedema, wound care, venous ulcers, and other conditions that benefit from reduced swelling and improved circulation. They are an innovative solution in the field of medical compression therapy.

Here's some key features:

  • Hybrid Design: The most distinctive feature of Fast'n Go bandages is their hybrid nature. They combine elements of inelastic and long-stretch bandages. Inelastic bandages provide a high working pressure (pressure during muscle activity) and low resting pressure (pressure during rest), which is effective for lymphatic and venous return. Long-stretch bandages, on the other hand, can stretch more, offering sustained compression even during rest. This combination allows for a more versatile and effective compression therapy.

  • 50% overlap indicator for consistent compression: This unique visual guide ensures that the bandages are applied with the correct overlap, maintaining consistent compression throughout the treated area.

  • Patented fastening system: The innovative hook-and-loop fastening system eliminates the need for pins, tapes, or velcro straps, making application and removal effortless and comfortable. This design firmly secures the bandages in place while requiring minimal effort to remove, even for those with limited dexterity.

  • Machine washable and durable: Fast'n GO Hybrid Compression Bandages are machine washable and reusable, making them a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution. Made from high-quality materials, they can withstand regular use and washing, maintaining their effectiveness over time. They are a cost-effective option for long-term management of chronic conditions.

  • Lightweight, reversible, and versatile: The lightweight construction of the bandages makes them comfortable to wear for extended periods, even during exercise. Their reversible design allows for easy application and adjustment, and they can be easily integrated with other compression tools for added support.

  • Arm kits with thumb anchor: The arm kits include a thumb anchor that provides a secure starting point for one-handed bandaging, particularly beneficial for those with limited arm mobility.

  • Full leg kits with connectors: The full leg kits come with connectors that seamlessly attach one bandage to the next, allowing for continuous compression coverage along the entire leg.

  • Limited stretchability for safety: The limited stretchability of the bandages minimizes the risk of applying them too tightly, preventing potential complications such as constriction or discomfort.

  • Eco-friendly and long-lasting: Fast'n GO Hybrid Compression Bandages are made with eco-conscious materials and have a shelf life of 6 to 12 months, depending on usage and care.

  • Comfortable and skin-friendly: The outer layer of the bandages is made from high-quality cotton that is gentle on the skin and comfortable to wear directly on clean, healthy, dry skin.

  • High reproducibility: The consistent design and application method of Fast'n GO Hybrid Compression Bandages ensure high reproducibility of compression levels, providing reliable and effective treatment outcomes.

  • Ease of Application: These bandages are designed with user-friendliness in mind, featuring the Patented Fast'n Go fastening system that simplifies the process of applying and adjusting the bandage. This design is particularly advantageous for patients who need to apply compression therapy themselves or for caregivers who may not have specialized training in bandage application.

  • Adjustable Compression: Fast'n Go bandages allow for adjustable levels of compression. This means they can be tailored to the specific needs of each patient, depending on the severity of their condition and the required pressure for effective treatment. This adjustability also means that the bandage can accommodate changes in limb size and shape over time.

  • Comfort and Mobility: The materials and design of Fast'n Go bandages aim to maximize patient comfort. They are less bulky than traditional bandages and allow for better mobility, which is crucial for maintaining normal daily activities and ensuring patient compliance with the treatment regimen.

  • Clinical and Home Use: While these bandages are used by healthcare professionals in clinical settings, their ease of use also makes them suitable for home care. This is particularly important for conditions like lymphedema, where consistent and ongoing compression therapy is key to managing the condition.

  • Minimal Training Required: Unlike more traditional bandaging techniques that require significant skill and training, Fast'n Go bandages can be applied effectively with little training. This makes them a practical solution for a wide range of users, including patients managing their condition at home.

  • Versatility: These bandages can be used in various stages of lymphedema, wound care, and venous disease management, from acute care to ongoing maintenance. Their adaptability makes them suitable for a wide range of limb sizes and shapes.

In summary, Fast'n Go hybrid compression bandages represent a significant advancement in compression therapy. Their hybrid design, ease of use with the Patented Fast'n Go fastening system, adjustability, and comfort make them a valuable tool for both healthcare professionals and patients in managing lymphedema, wound care, and other conditions requiring compression therapy.
