Elastic Knee & Elbow

Elastoplast Knee & Elbow plasters are larger plasters that offer better wound coverage on knees and elbow due to their increased size. The pads seal all around the wound to prevent contamination.

  • The material is breathable and flexible. 
  • The non-stick wound pad protects and cushions the wound. 
  • The strong adhesion ensures that the plaster stays in place. 

How to use

Clean the wound and gently wipe away any foreign objects such as dirt or grit.
Dry the skin around the cut or graze very carefully.
Apply plaster without stretching and avoiding creases.
Use each plaster only once.

1. How often should I change my plaster?
Usually, it is recommended to change standard first aid dressings daily due to hygienic reasons. Some advanced plasters such as the Antibacterial Plaster that provide moist wound healing conditions are recommended to be left in place for up to two days or more in order not to interrupt the healing process.
2. Is it better to let small wounds dry in the fresh air instead of putting on a plaster?
It is one of the biggest wound care myths that keeping minor cuts and grazes exposed to the air helps them to heal faster. Research shows that covered wounds heal more efficiently and have a reduced risk of infection. Elastoplast products provide protection until the wound is completely healed.
3. When should I consult a doctor?

We recommend contacting a medical professional if:

  • The wound is deep and causing major bleeding.
  • The wound shows signs of infection such as redness, warmth, pain or swelling.
  • There are embedded foreign objects in the wound.
  • The wound is caused by an animal or human bite.
  • The wound is in the area of the face.
  • There is a fear of tetanus infection.
  • You have any strange symptoms or are worried in any way.
4. What if my wound gets infected and produces pus?
You should contact a medical professional if you recognise signs of infection – not only pus, but also swelling, redness, heat, pain, itching or burning. In the case of infection, the wound will need special medical treatment.
5. Which Elastoplast plaster are waterproof and water resistant?
For injuries and wounds on hands and fingers we recommend our Aqua Protect 100% Waterproof Plasters.
