Product Description

Designed for children 6-24 months in age. Tubifast leggings are designed for older children.

New, ready-made Tubifast Garments, for dressing retention and wet or dry wrapping, are now available in full-sleeved vests, tights, leggings and socks. For children of six months and over. With no tapes, pins or ties, Tubifast Garments are quick and easy to apply, and their two-way stretch construction ensures complete freedom of movement, so aiding compliance. Comfortable to wear under nightwear and ordinary clothes, they also help to promote fully active days and restful nights.

Use Within Wrapping
Wet wrapping is a therapy used in the treatment of atopic eczema, and involves the use of an emollient under retention bandaging. An emollient 
(such as Epaderm which is designed for use in wet wrapping) is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast Garment. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist, and help reduce inflammation2. The damp Tubifast Garment also acts as a retaining layer, ensuring that the emollient stays in contact with the skin. The damp layer also cools and soothes the skin and helps to reduce the itch2. A second, dry layer is then applied, which keeps the patient’s clothing dry and prevents further scratching from aggravating the skin and causing potential injury.

Dry wrapping is a similar process to wet wrapping. An emollient (such as Epaderm which is designed for use in dry wrapping) is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a single, dry layer of Tubifast Garment.

Fibre content: VISCOSE, NYLON and ELASTANE.

    Posted by on 21st Nov 2016

    I wish we had found these sooner as a way of stopping the vicious circle of scratching, itching, bleeding. These have helped immensely and will be buying more pairs so he can basically live in them until his legs clear up

    Posted by on 27th Jan 2015

    Good quality product. I wish I discovered them earlier. It would be good if they came in a twin pk at a cheaper price. You have the best price in Australia.


  8. Don't know what I'd do with out these! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Dec 2014

    These are fantastic, my son can't pull hes wet dressings out off them, it locks in moisture heaps more effectively then using crepe bandages on top off the wet dressings. and it minimises the scratching a lot, I wish I'd used them ages ago, saves so much more time!


  9. great for wet wrap treatment and east to use 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2014

    We used these for a full week of wet wrap treatment for our baby girls eczema and the tubifast top and tights were excellent. Easy to get on and off, easy to wash and reuse quickly! Highly recommended.


  10. Best thing for summer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2014

    This is best for my son's eczema during summer as it keeps him cool and stops him from scratching his legs at the same time. But it's a bit dear, so I can't have him wearing it everyday, only when it's really hot.
