aquatic bandage / aquatic bandage

Abrasions, cuts, or wounds are dressed to prevent infection or further injuries.
Most dressings use a ventilated adhesive tape.
Bandages often are not waterproof. Such bandages do not allow aquatic activity.
Moisture can adversely affect the bandages, causing inconvenience.
The design and functionality of this type of wound protection needs improving.
Rubber is the material of choice. The bandage’s inside can be designed to have an alternating concave-convex, ripple design; thereby enabling complete skin contact. This keeps moisture out of the wound. This new, convenient dressing design makes aquatic activities possible.
