Fingerbobs (aka Fingerbuddies) are a very handy way of applying tubular bandage to protect a finger injury. Fingerbobs are much easier and faster to use than standard tubular bandage. Here’s how to apply one…
A Fingerbob is supplied rolled up from both ends, with the rolls meeting in the middle so it looks like two adjacent rings of tubular bandage, as pictured:
Place one ring of the fingerbob on the tip of your finger like this.
Roll that ring all the way down your finger to enclose your finger in the bandage:
Grip the other ring (the one you did not roll down in the previous step) and twist it round once or twice as if unscrewing a bottle cap:
Now roll that ring down your finger too. That’s it!
If you’d like to buy some Fingerbobs for your first aid kit, we sell them here. We supply them in two different sizes: standard and large. Both sizes are available in white, for general first aid use, and in blue to suit catering environments. We used blue Fingerbobs in this blog post because they show up better in photos, but the white ones work in exactly the same way.
