Elasticity hot melt adhesive film and extensibility are the two most important characteristics of compression bandages. Elasticity is defined as the ability of the bandage to regain its original form after extension, due to the addition of elastic threads in the longitudinal direction of the bandage. The force employed to stretch the bandage deformation energy indicates the elastic power or tension. The ability of the bandage to maintain tension and therefore the pressure it exerts depends on its elastomer properties, which in turn depend on the thread and the method used to construct the fabric.
