What Is Medical Stretch Tape?
Stretch tape is a cloth and elastic blend made to secure bandages, cold packs, and to support injured joints and muscles. These tapes are very comfortable and apply less compression to the area than regular medical tape.
How Does Stretch Tape Work?
Stretch tape has a medium tensile strength, strong adhesive and elastic properties, this allows the tape to provide comfortable pressure to an injury without limiting mobility or constricting too much blood.
Is Stretch Tape Waterproof?
Stretch tape is not waterproof because of the elastic material it is blended with. Try to keep these tapes dry as long as possible for best results.
