Abstract: The study on creep behaviour of short stretch bandages indicates that the most suitable bandage material as regards better holding during use may not be suitable for repeated use and vice versa. Lower values of delayed extension and permanent set in fabric are desirable for better holding capacity and for its repeated use respectively. Material ranking as regards instantaneous extension, delayed extension, instantaneous recovery, delayed recovery and permanent set does not change much with the variation in load. Although constructional parameters of all leno weaved bandage materials have significant influence on the above characteristics, there is no standardization as regards the uses of material, constructional parameters of yarn and fabric sett. Further, the fabric of higher weight may not perform best as regards holding of fabric during use.
