Dressing Tape Alternatives

Dressing Tape Alternatives - SPORTTAPE

SPORTTAPE FIXATION TAPE is our alternative to other dressing retention tapes.

It is strong, breathable and super sticky. Conforming easily to any area of the body with an adhesive designed to last, whatever your sport can throw at it. It’s quickly becoming an essential tape for every club therapist’s kitbag.

The acrylic adhesive is much kinder to the skin than Zinc Oxide glues too, making SPORTTAPE Fixation Tape perfect for sensitive areas of the body. Most commonly used around the shoulder, elbow, and knee.

It's been specifically designed with the pitch-side therapist in mind, offering a more affordable dressing retention tape.

FIXATION TAPE FEATURES

1. DRESSING RETENTION

We use hypoallergenic, non-woven synthetic fibres that are permeable to moisture, meaning the skin can breathe and air can circulate. Used commonly in sports and medical settings to secure dressings and pads.

2. EASY PEEL

Our backing tape is cut down the centre, making it easy to remove and apply to dressings, gauze, pads or below Zinc Oxide Tape.

3. STRONG & BREATHABLE

Our fixation fabric tape is strong, breathable and super sticky. It conforms easily to any area of the body with an adhesive designed to last whatever your sport can throw at it.

Its breathable fabric means that the skin can breathe properly and air can circulate through the tape. This makes the application less prone to peeling when you start sweating.

Most commonly used around the shoulder, elbow, and knee.

4. ADHESION

Our acrylic adhesive is kinder to the skin than Zinc Oxide glues, making Fixation Tape perfect for sensitive areas of the body and easy to remove. We’d always recommend a test patch if you have a known history of taping allergies.

5. 2 SIZES

The 10cm width is perfect for wider muscle groups and joints, and holding dressings and plasters in place. The 5cm width is great for patella malt racking and for use in combination with P tape (Zinc Oxide Tan).
