KEY POINTS:

1 box

1. Measure

Measure the ankle. Reshape/protect the limb (if necessary) by applying a padding bandage such as FlexiBan® or Cellona®

2. Secure

Secure padding with two turns at the base of the toes and with a figure of eight at the ankle before using a 50% overlap spiral up the leg to 2cm below the knee/popliteal fossa. Re-measure the ankle.

With an ankle circumference of 18cm-25cm after padding:

3. Check

Before applying Actico® 10cm check that the foot is correctly positioned 'toes to nose' to maximise ankle movement. Hold Actico® with tension and apply two turns from the base of the toes. Roll Actico® across the dorsum keeping tension. An extra turn may be applied in the middle of a long foot

4. Enclose

Enclose the ankle and heel with a figure of eight

Start to spiral up the leg using the 'Lock & Roll' method (50% overlap – full stretch). Roll the Actico® round the back of the leg whilst ensuring it is locked out at full stretch. Continue with the 'Lock & Roll' method up the limb in a spiral

5. Finish

Finish the Actico® 3cm below the popliteal fossa. Cut off excess bandage and tape if necessary. Ensure layers are bonded.

With an ankle circumference more than 25cm after padding:

6. Repeat

Apply a second Actico® 10cm in the opposite direction. Secure with two turns with tension over the ankle and on the third turn follow the 'Lock & Roll' method as before in Steps 4 & 5. Finish as before.
