Zinc oxide tape is a rigid, adhesive tape used to strap joints such as the ankle, knee, shoulder, or wrist in order to prevent sporting injuries.
Zinc Oxide tape as an essential for taking care of yourself in the field especially your feet!
As well as aiding in the prevention of injuries, it can also be used on areas which have previously been injured as a way of supporting the muscles around a joint.
It creates a form of protection around the damaged area because it restricts the motion of the injured joint during activity due to its complete lack of stretch or flexibility.
Why would I use Zinc Oxide Tape?
It conforms to the area to which it is applied making it far less bulky and lighter weight than a brace, which is why it is so popular with sports people and physiotherapists. Tape also allows for different methods to be used to offer targeted support to specific ligaments or tendons within a joint.
This means that the joint can have a certain range of movement allowing faster recovery from injury, and the ability to continue activity.
This tape has high quality of the adhesive, high tensile strength of the tape and the comfort or conformability of the tape.
Relitape Zinc Oxide, for example, is our Zinc oxide tape which is made from 100% cotton, with a good level of adhesion which suitable for a single, short term use.
A premium quality tape with an even stronger adhesive which can withstand wet and harsh environments, plus it has a very good tensile strength of 57lbs per inch.
This means that the material can withstand a high level of stress before breaking. Both tapes can be used to immobilise joints or support injuries, but the additional feature of a smooth unwind, plus the feel and conformity allows for easier application.
