Casting tapes and products are ideal for supporting the healing process. They help keep body parts in place until the patient has completely healed. Casting tapes are typically preferred to splints as they offer more support and protection for injured or broken limbs.
There are a number of choices for casts including fibreglass, polyester and gypsum. Casting tapes are designed specifically to be easily moldable to fit the shape of the body part that needs protection.
They are also ideal for protecting various body parts during post-surgery recovery. They are applied to reduce and avoid swelling and can be replaced after some time once the pain subsides.
Casting tapes also protect the body from contamination as it guards against water and moisture contact. They are also comfortable and lightweight allowing for easy movement and faster recovery maintaining breathability for the skin.
