The use of elastic bandages is widespread, and something every physiotherapist is familiar with. Because elastic bandages have some 'give' to them, they will conform to any body contour, and can adapt to tissue changes.
Lightweight and flexible, elastic bandages are widely used by professional soccer players to finish tape jobs on their ankles, providing excellent support for joint sprains and sports injuries.
This lightweight product is also extensively used on knees, wrists and shoulders, for both treatment and prevention of injuries.
The adhesives properties mean that they will adhere securely to skin, or alternatively they can be used on top of a pre tape underwrap. Using them straight off the roll ensures that they go on smoothly and conform to the body part that is being taped.
This is the perfect choice when you want to provide maximum physical support while increasing proprioceptive awareness of when you are approaching the give point of an injured joint.
