Proper wound care is never complete without useful and versatile medical products. Medical tape is a product that is particularly designed to close wounds and keep bandages in place. These tapes are available in a range of lengths, widths, sizes and types that are able to cope with different bandaging needs. While some tapes are more breathable, others are thick and smooth.
Elastikon Elastic tape is a flexible tape that until recently was manufactured by Johnson and Johnson. Johnson and Johnson’s wound care line was acquired by Systagenix this year. This elastic tape involves natural rubber in its dry form. It can easily be applied to any kind of wound dressing.
