Basics Of Application :
Ensure to thoroughly assess the patient in order to identify the most appropriate application
Do NOT apply tape to any area of skin that is damaged by scrapes; cuts; burns; sunburn or any type of skin rash/irritation
The skin should be free of oils and lotion prior to application
If body hair is limiting adhesion you may need to trim or shave the area
Do NOT apply with excess tension (as with zinc oxide application)
If the patient has been exercising, ensure perspiration has completely stopped before application
If you are using a roll of tape, measure and cut carefully
Round all the edges of the tape to prevent premature peeling
Avoid touching the adhesive side of the tape after removing the backing as this may decrease the adhesive strength on the skin
Once the tape is applied, activate the heat-sensitive glue by rubbing up and down the surface of the tape
Wait at least 1 hour after application before engaging in activity that causes sweating
Do not swim or shower for at least 1 hour after application
To dry the tape after exercising, swimming or a shower, pat gently with a towel
