Application instructions

Layer 1
Position the foot at a 90˚ angle

1. Begin wrapping Layer 1 on the top of the foot, at the base of the fifth digit in a spiral technique
2. Continue spiral wrapping across the top of the foot then proceed to wrap 1 figure of 8 around the back of the heel/ankle. The plantar surface of the heel may be partially exposed
3. Continue spiral wrapping up the leg. Apply with a 50% overlap using just enough tension to conform to the shape of the leg, ending just below the knee
4. Cut or hand-tear excess materials and tape to keep the bandage in place

Layer 2
Position the foot at a 90˚ angle. Layer 2 is the same application technique as Layer 1 with the exception of 2 figure 8’s around the heel/ankle completely covering the heel, while using the visual indicators

1. Begin wrapping Layer 2 on the top of the foot, at the base of the fifth digit in a spiral technique
2. Hold the bandage with thumb and stretch until the ovals become circles. Begin spiral wrapping across the top of the foot, then proceed to wrap two figure of 8’s around the back of the heel/ankle completely covering the heel and foot. Continue to maintain even tension by stretching the visual indicators from ovals to circles
3. Continue to spiral wrap up the leg covering Layer 1 with 50% overlap while maintaining even tension
4. Cut or hand-tear excess material
5. Gently press over entire application to ensure a strong bond and reduce slippage

Removal: remove with bandage scissors or by unwrapping
