The waterproof ankle taping kit has been put together by Vivomed to provide an alternative to tradtional ankle taping tehniques that use an underwrap and zinc oxide tape. When the zinc oxide tape gets wet, after a period of time the glue can start to slowly release meaning the level of support provided by the tape can deminish.
Andover Healthcare have developed 2 different tapes that stick to each other without any adhesive so will not slip when they get wet and with the additional benifit of also not sticking to the skin so removal is painless. These tapes are widely used in American Football NFL where the intense heat around ankles from playing in hot and humid enviromnents such as Florida reqire somehting different. These can also be used for rehab of patients in water.
Please see the video below to demonstrate how this technique works.
