Adhesive tapes are designed to fix bandages and close wounds. Width, length, and styles vary. Surgical tape is necessary for a first aid kit, as it is versatile and valuable. Studies have shown that healing time improves when injuries are cleaned quickly and ventilated. Hence, the tape provides a healthy airflow through the wound rather than suffocating the area. Capital Medical Supplies offers a wide range of adhesive tapes brands such as 3M, BEIERSDORF, BSN MEDICAL-ESSITY, COLOPLAST, CONVATEC, MOLNLYCKE HEALTH CARE, SMITH & NEPHEW.
Some of the benefits of these products are; ideal for solid fixation of the dressings, sports protection; firm attachment, strong suitability, easy to use; hypoallergenic; no skin irritation, allowing the skin to breathe freely and easy-to-tear. The sizes and colours vary. For example, Coban Self-Adherent Wrap comes in sizes 50MM x 2M and 75MM x 2M in tan colour.
CMS also has tapes for a particular use. For example, The Brava Elastic Tape in the C shape prevents the outer edge of the adhesive plate of the colostomy bag from peeling off, ensuring its reliable attachment to the skin. The elastic half-ring plate follows your body shape and doesn't restrict movement. The half-ring plate provides additional reliability and prolongs wearing a colostomy bag. * Extra large size of The Brava Elastic Tape is also available at CMS.
Our customers also find useful Hypafix, a self-adhesive non-woven dressing retention sheet. It's perfect for simplifying shaping around joints and body contours.
