Lymphedema Products offers an extensive collection of wraps, bandages, and medical-grade tapes for a variety of uses in wound care and medical compression applications. Examples include Kinesio Gold Tex Tape, Lightplast Cohesive Tape from medical supplies manufacturer, BSN Medical, and, Micropore Surgical Tape, Durapore Surgical Tape, and Leukotape P, all from 3M, among other products.
Although these high-quality, medical-grade products vary widely in terms of materials, performance characteristics, and applications, they’re all specially designed to treat delicate skin gently, while providing appropriate adhesion and/or compression capabilities. Most of these products are designed to be porous, for maximum "breathability" and comfort.
Two products from Kinesio, for example, have gained a reputation for comfort and breathability, and their ability to help address minor sports injuries and provide support for strained muscles and/or joints. Kinesio Tex Gold Tape, made with breathable cotton and medical-grade acrylic adhesive, provides excellent hold combined with superior breathability. This product also features a convenient, built-in tape dispenser. We also offer Kinesio Tex Classic Tape, which has become popular among elite athletes, who believe this tape helps enhance muscle performance and recovery after intensive exercise.
Simple Micropore Surgical Tape, from 3M, is a standard supply found in emergency departments, rehab facilities and sports locker rooms all over the world. Hypoallergenic and extremely gentle on tender skin, this breathable, yet durable adhesive tape is the go-to choice for professionals who use it for everything from taping lymphedema bandaging in place, to other applications where delicate skin requires the use of the lightest, most forgiving product available. This product is essential for anyone with an allergy to cheaper latex-based tapes. Perhaps best of all, it leaves no gummy residue behind like some other tapes.
Patients and physicians alike appreciate the tenacity of Leukotape P, from BSN Medical. Able to adhere to just about anything, and resistant to the effects of water, this rigid strapping tape features an especially durable zinc oxide adhesive that resists breakdown, thus reducing the need to change bandages frequently.
