How to Use

  1. Preparation:
    • Ensure the skin is clean and dry before applying the tape. Any moisture or oils on the skin can reduce the adhesive effectiveness.
    • If necessary, shave the area to avoid discomfort during tape removal.
  2. Application:
    • Measure and Cut: Cut the desired length of tape from the roll. A typical application might require several pieces depending on the area being taped.
    • Anchor: Begin by anchoring one end of the tape on the skin without stretching it.
    • Apply: Lay the tape along the muscle or joint, ensuring it is applied smoothly without wrinkles.
    • Tear: Use the serrated edge to easily tear the tape to the required length.
  3. Post-Application:
    • Ensure there is no discomfort or excessive tightness. The tape should feel supportive but not restrict circulation.
    • Test your range of motion to confirm that the tape is providing the desired support without limiting movement excessively.
  4. Removal:
    • To remove the tape, gently peel it off the skin starting from one end. Pull the tape back slowly and in the direction of hair growth to minimise discomfort.
    • If the tape is difficult to remove, use a tape remover or apply a small amount of baby oil or olive oil to loosen the adhesive.
