Patent Number: 6,512,158

Title: Medical protective wrap

Abstract: Medical protective wraps made of a liquid impermeable, stretchable polymeric material which provide a watertight seal and barrier to protect wounds from contamination due to dirt, microbes or infiltration of water during bathing while not constricting blood flow to the healing tissue. The protective wraps comprise a liquid impermeable stretchable polymeric sheet of a sufficient length to wrap around the body part at least once. Positioned along opposing peripheral edges of the polymeric sheet are sealing cuffs having reduced stretchability relative to the sheet. Also, there are first and second terminal edges running transverse to the longitudinal axis of the peripheral edges. A fastener is attached to the first terminal edge which secures the sheet to the body and the second terminal is fastened to the sheet after at least one wrapping of the sheet around the body part.
