Medical tape is a deceptively simple medical product and can actually make quite a difference in healing times, maintenance of skin surrounding a wound and convenience of dressing changes. Medical tape is created with a specific goal, to adhere gently while providing long-lasting securement of dressings, gauzes, sponges, and wraps.
Medical tape has several varieties. Those with sensitivities should look for hypoallergenic options such as those made by TenderSkin. Many people suffer from skin that tears easily so a tape like 3M Micropre tape is recommended to be extra gentle. Soft, non woven, conformable tape offers excellent adhesion for securing wound dressings, tubing and catheters, while allowing surrounding skin to remain unaffected and healthy. Silk tapeensures dressings remain in place during lengthy wear. Air- and moisture vapor-permeable, retention tape, stretches for easy application and acts as a secondary dressing for gauze, foams or gels.
We offer a large selection of surgical, cloth, silk, paper, transparent, latex free and self-adhering medical grade tapes and medical wraps for core wound care at home and in the clinical setting.
