KNEE SUPPORT STRAPPING GUIDE


FOLLOW THIS KNEE SUPPORT STRAPPING APPLICATION

Always seek medical advice before attempting this application and whether you're a seasoned taping pro or a first time taper, fully assess before applying. Then just equip yourself with some Zinc Oxide tape, clean skin and follow the video above (see summary below).

STEP 1

  • Using Zinc Oxide 3.8cm
  • Place the knee in flexion and apply the first anchor around the lower quad. Alternatively you could use EAB 5cm for the anchor (it has greater flexability)

STEP 2

  • Apply the second anchor at the top of the calf (remember to allow a little space for muscle expansion)

  • Measure the tape between the anchors.

  • Apply tape from the lower anchor in an upward direction

STEP 3

  • Apply strips to create a fan intersecting the ligament
  • For greater support repeat with additional strips of tape
  • Repeat if neccessary for the medial side
  • For sensitive skin you may wish to apply Fixing Tape first
