APPLY A FIGURE-EIGHT WRAP
A figure-eight wrap is used to limit joint movement of the hand, elbow, knee,
ankle, or foot. Figure 6-6 shows a figure-eight wrap applied to a hand.
Figure 6-6. Applying a figure-eight wrap.
a. Apply padding (usually gauze applied between the fingers or toes, around
bony areas, and/or in hollow areas).
b. Apply an anchor wrap below the joint (see figure 6-6 A).
c. Bring the roller bandage up diagonally and across the joint (wrist).
d. Wrap the roller bandage around the limb above the joint (circular wrap).

the upward portion of the figure-eight wrap (see figure 6-6 B).
f. Take the roll behind the body part (fingers) and up diagonally across the joint
again. Overlap two-thirds of the previous upward wrap (see figure 6-6 C).
g. Take the roll behind the body part (wrist area) and down again diagonally,
overlapping the previous downward wrap.

sufficiently supported.
