The Elastikon Elastic Tape is a dynamic pressure tape designed to provide compression to sprains, strains, muscle injuries, and secure wound dressings. It is also used to provide compression to wounds that constantly drain blood and to bone fractures and strained muscles or tendons. Its high-elasticity provides a firm strapping and support for fractures, muscle injuries, joint injuries on the knees, elbows, and shoulders. For surgeries like mastectomy, the larger width option of the tape is often used to bind the chest.
Its soft, high-twist cotton fabric allows users to comfortably wear it for long periods of time. The porous construction of the Elastikon Bandage allows the skin to breathe and eliminates the build-up of moisture thereby keeping the skin dry.
The stretchability and elasticity of the Johnson & Johnson Elastikon allows it to be easily wrapped around any part of your body to provide a stable amount of compression. It also holds wound dressings in securely in place preventing further damage to the wound. A clear red line on the center of the backcloth acts as a guide to help you wrap the bandage uniformly. With a rubber-based adhesive that secures the wounds around the edges, the tape provides a good and quick adhesion to injuries. It is important to note that the rubber adhesive makes it unsuitable to be used by people with latex-allergies.
