Review from Jeanniesreviews.wordpress.com
I didn’t know what this tape was used for but it reminded me of a loose weave type of Vetwrap bandage I’ve used for pets. Its similar in principle being used for support but the open weave construction of this tape means its breathable, and very similar tp human skin. I’ve used the Vetwrap often for joint support but it can get a bit sweaty, and as its elasticated you need to watch for over compression. blue fingers aren’t a good look….
This tape is perfect, being designed for physio/medical use. The construction negates the downsides of the Vetwrap, while being something every medical kit should have. It can be used for simple joint support either with or without something underneath such as cotton wool, or used as a simple bandage for cuts and sprains. Having been designed for human use as opposed to pets it doesn’t actually need anything under and can be used direct to skin. I sometimes find the extra warmth of cotton wool soothing but for athletes its just the support more than pain relief, so being able to use without means maximum flexibility, which is very important.
I like that its wider than other tapes I’ve used and it certainly stands up to wear. I’ve currently got some issues with my left wrist and used the tape without anything under it, and it stayed on easily for two days, would have stayed longer but I did find I was beginning to get some skin irritation. I do have a very sensitive skin though and it’s easily irritated. I then applied the tape with some cotton wool under the bulk of it and you can see from the photo how it looks after nearly two days, and I’ve no irritation issues.
The company also supply a couple of useful booklets on the best way to use the tape, and also the handy free resistance bads included with the tape.
