How often must I apply the stump bandaging?

Stump bandaging is worn day and night.

Preferably, stump bandaging should be re?applied every 4 hours or when the bandage feels loose, whichever is earlier.

This is to allow for:

  • Surgical wound care
  • Stump inspection
  • Stump hygiene
  • Early detection of potential stump skin problems

Stump bandage should never be worn when prosthesis is worn.
