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.
Constructed to be as stable as possible with a rubber zinc oxide adhesive mass, it restricts excessive movement of ligaments, tendons and joints to prevent injury or re-injury under high-stress conditions. The medical grade, porous zinc oxide adhesive ensures that tape will remain in place and the strong rayon construction allows for maximum support.
The athletic tape is flesh coloured with pink edges. The pink edges provide quicker application while simultaneously eliminating threading. It is hand tear-able for faster and easier application, mitigating the need for scissors.
For Sensitive Skin or frequent taping, apply an Elastoplast under-wrap first, followed by the Rigid Strapping Tape. Allowing a layer between your skin and the tapes adhesive layer will help provide comfort and prevent irritation.
