SPORTTAPE FIXATION TAPE is a cost-effective Hypafix alternative or MeFix alternative. Offering the same stretch properties, improved breathability, less ‘rolling-up’ at the end of the roll, and lower cost.
Our FIXATION TAPE has been designed with the pitch-side therapist in mind, offering a more affordable dressing retention tape.
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 the club therapist’s no. 1 Hypafix Alternative.
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.
