This Elastic Adhesive Bandage Tape is tearable by hand and it gives a high level of compression, conforming and adhering to any part of the body.
What can I use Tear Light MAX EAB Tape for?
Tearable EAB is commonly used due to the ability to be applied loosely allowing stretch and movement or to pull the tape taught on application creating a more rigid tape for secure strapping. Ideal for ankles, knees and other large joints and is also very popular using in conjunction with our lifting blocks to apply to the lineout jumpers thighs.
Firstaid4sport Tear Light MAX EAB Tape is great as a fixation bandage for holding dressings and ice packs in place. Tearable EAB is probably the most versatile of any bandage available and with the ability to hand tear this tape with no need for scissors makes it is a must for any First Aid Kit –Sports First Aid Kits
Why is Tear Light MAX EAB Tape 6.9m long?
Tear light EAB is used in ankle taping for a figure of 8 around the ankle – mainly for prevention of injury on both ankles. The reason for the length is that 1 roll will cover 2 ankles exactly using a traditional taping method. The professionals can whiz the tape around 2 ankles in a mater of seconds and the core goes into the bin and onto the next.
See our Figure of 8 ankle taping video for more information – as shown by Julie Heyton – former Physiotherapist with Leicester Tigers for 11 years.
