Elastoplast Rigid Strapping Tape is a robust supportive tape, which is suitable for stabilising joints during vigorous physical activity. That’s why the Elastoplast Rigid Strapping Tape is the choice of many Australian athletes, including netballer Gabi Simpson and basketballer Chris Goulding. Elastoplast is also the official supplier to a number of professional sporting teams, including Collingwood, South Sydney Rabbitohs, Netball Australia and more.
It can be used as a preventative measure, supporting joints and tendons by minimising painful, excessive movement. It can also be used for rehabilitation post-injury, to promote recovery and prevent further injury. The Elastoplast Rigid Strapping Tape is commonly used to support the ankle, helping athletes recover from ligament sprains or prevent further injury, which you can read more about here. Elastoplast Rigid Strapping Tape can also be used to support the knee, by preventing or supporting injuries such as fractures and dislocations, and ligament or meniscus tears. The tape is also suitable for strapping both the shoulder and the elbow, to help reduce muscle pain, increase blood flow and avoid cramps.
For athletes involved in sports that require the use of their hands and fingers, such as netball, volleyball and basketball, many choose to stabilise their fingers and hands to prevent injury through excessive movement, and help support recovery. Elastoplast Sport Rigid Strapping Tape is available in four widths, ranging from 12.5mm to 50mm wide, to suit various requirements. For those who frequently use strapping tape, or have sensitive skin, the Elastoplast Rigid Strapping Tape can be used with the Elastowrap Adhesive Underwrap to protect the skin.
