This Bandage Uses a Simple Design Tweak to Fix a First-Aid Staple

This ergonomic medical bandage fixes one of the most annoying issues of a first-aid staple. Conventional bandages can lack effectiveness when applied to a finger if you live an active lifestyle, but this tweak makes a major difference.

Designed by Lin Huahui, the 'Bendy Wendy Bandaid' uses efficient construction to provide a more optimal experience with bandages. Medical bandages can be ineffective for a multitude of reasons, from causing poor circulation to losing their adhesive properties. Huahui created a sleeve-like bandage that uses a cut-out design that allows for the bandage to bend when the finger bends -- this simple redesign saves a lot of grief and reapplying time.

This could also be applied for any joint, making it a much more effective tool for physical recovery.
