Rigid Strapping Tape – To restrict joint movement and protect joints, injured joints or for added joint support, we recommend you use our Rigid Strapping Tape. If you are strapping a shoulder, a knee or ankle, we recommend you use the 38mm wide or 50mm wide Rigid Strapping Tape. If you are strapping an elbow, hand or finger, we recommend you use the 12.5mm wide or 25mm wide Rigid Strapping Tape. Ultimately, there’s no steadfast rule when it comes to tape width, it depends on the athlete’s size and what feels most comfortable.
Elastic Adhesive Bandage (EAB) – To compress and support joints and muscles where greater flexibility is still required, we recommend EAB. In regard to widths, the same basic rules apply as with the Rigid Strapping Tape. 75mm wide EAB can also be used over the Rigid Strapping Tape as a strong compression bandage for even greater stability and support.
Hand Tearable Tape – Is a cohesive bandage designed for compression wrapping when time is of the essence (eg; when a player is injured on the field), Hand Tearable Tape can be quickly and easily applied to compress and support the injured area and is easily torn by hand eliminating the need for scissors on the playing field.
Underwrap – Is ideal for use under other adhesive bandages for athletes with sensitive skin, skin irritations, allergies, cuts or abrasions.
Kinesio (or Kinesiology) Tape – Is a revolutionary sports medicine solution for treating an array of sports injuries including, ITBS (Iliotibal Band Syndrome), planter fasciitis, shin splints, joint soreness and muscle soreness. Kinesio tape manipulates the skin and muscles and has been proven to promote and improve blood circulation to muscle and joint tissue, improve lymphatic drainage, facia function, provide pain relief whilst also providing additional stability and support. Kinesio tape also aids in a faster recovery for the athlete.
