Application of the tape
Always ensure the skin is clean, dry and oil free before applying the tape. We advise that you clean the skin to be treated with a skin sanitising gel/wipe in order to ensure the best and most durable tape adhesion. After the tape has been applied, gently rub the tape. This warms up and activates the adhesive for a longer lasting hold.
Removal of the tape: The adhesive that we use is very sticky and is designed to stay on the skin without peeling for several days. Caution must be used when removing the tape from the skin – especially for those with weak or thin skin. Start with one corner and gently pull on the tape with one hand whilst supporting the underlying skin with the other. Always pull the tape from the skin in the same direction of the hair.
Always consult a Medical Professional or Therapist for advice before using this tape. Although Podium Tape uses hypoallergenic glue and is latex free we strongly advise you to test this tape on a small area of skin for 24 hours prior to use. Should you notice any form of irritation STOP using Podium Tape immediately. Do not use if you are being treated for cancer or are suffering from any form of circulatory disease.
This tape must NEVER be used on infected skin or open wounds.
