With Rigid Strapping tape now common place to prevent injuries and assist with rehabilitation of injuries. Many sports people forget you can improve the comfort and compression around a joint by over wrapping it with Elastic Adhesive Bandage (commonly known as E.A.B.). This hand tearable cotton tape is easy to use and the coadhesive nature of the product means it stays in place
EAB acts as a retainer for the Rigid tape and holds in place those sometimes frustrating little end flaps that fray for what ever reason. Whether it was the skin was a little too oily or there was too much hair & sweat before you applied it. EAB can keep the rigid strapping tape in place nice and secure
The most common size is 5cm wide and works nicely with 3.8cm Rigid strapping tape.
EAB is often hard to find and mainly sold through Physios by way of over wrapping service/fee but you can buy online now at a great price. www.supportguards.com
