Elastoplast Rigid Strapping Tape is a robust supportive tape, which is suitable for stabilising joints during vigorous physical activity, to support and prevent joint injury. By restrictive excessive movement of joints & ligaments, it stabilises the area to help alleviate pain. It can be used to treat moderate to severe, joint and ligament sprains, strains or tears, to provide extra support during recovery.

 

APPLICATION TIPS

1. How to prepare the skin?

Before you apply the tape, you need to prepare the area to be taped by Shaving the area - for best results, wet-shaving the skin 12 hours before or using an electric razor just prior. Cleaning the area by using a tape remover to remove body oil. Covering any rashes or broken skin with a non-stick wound pad.

2. Where to apply the tape?

Joints are normally strapped in their 'at rest' position. Do not use the limb to pull against when getting the tape off the roll. Hold the roll in one hand and pull the tape off with the other hand, then apply gently or cut off the required number of strips of the correct length before you start applying.

3. How tight should the tape be?

Flexing the muscles when applying the tape will help you get the correct tension. Check that the tape is not too tight by pinching the skin below the tape for a few seconds. The skin should return to its normal colour when released. If the tape is too loose, it will not support the joint. If it is too tight, then it could cut off the blood supply. If numbness and tingling result, remove tape or bandage and reapply with reduced tightness.

4. How much tape to apply?

For maximum strength, overlap each layer of strapping tape by 1/3-1/2. The amount you use depends upon the amount of support you need. If you use too little, then you are not providing enough support to the joint. If you use too much, then you could reduce the mobility of surrounding muscles.

5. When to remove the tape?

For all normal prophylactic or preventative taping and bandaging applications remove the tape as soon as you have finished training or playing. Generally all taping and bandaging applications should not remain on the skin for longer than 2 days. Seek further advice from your Physiotherapist or Health Professional for extended use of the taping or bandaging application.
