BSN Hypafix is a premium dressing retention tape designed to secure dressings and bandages to the body. Hypafix Retention Tape can also be used under sports tape (for instance zinc oxide tape) to provide a good surface for the sports tape to stick to and to protect the underlying skin. BSN Hypafix Retention Tape is also known as dressing fixing tape. Hypafix Dressing Retention Tape is constructed from non-woven tape with an adhesive backing under the protective paper.
BSN Hypafix Retention Tape offers greater stretch and conformability with a non-irritating self-adhesive. It protects as a secondary dressing and so much more. Hypafix Retention Tape comes in a variety of widths to be cut to the length needed. Hypafix provides freedom of movement allowing for comfort and versatility of use with a wound dressing. Hypafix tape is also commonly used to secure post-operative catheters, tubes and drainage lines. Hypafix flexible construction is very helpful in protecting insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring systems for individuals with diabetes. Hypafix Retention Tape is ideal for covering hard-to-reach areas. This retention tape provides complete coverage and allows joints to be dressed without constraining movement. These traits make Hypafix Retention Tape valuable to athletes nursing a wound or covering up blisters.
Hypafix Retention Tape is water-resistant with a hypoallergenic adhesive that acts as excellent secondary retention of gauze, foam, and gel, doubling the amount of protection to the wound. This keeps out bacteria and other harmful microbes. The materials are permeable and therefore offer a moist wound environment that's ideal for quicker wound healing. The retention dressing permeability allows athletes to comfortably wear Hypafix Tape and ensures that perspiration won't cause irritation and compromise the adhesive. Hypafix Retention Tape is water-resistant and holds well in the shower.
Hypafix is radio-transparent and therefore the retention dressing can remain on the skin surface for x-rays or radiotherapy and have no disruption to the healing of the wound.
Hypafix is great to keep on hand in emergency preparedness kits when camping or participating in outdoor activities.
Affixing Hypafix Retention Tape is very easy. First, start with clean and dry skin. Select the amount needed and cut the retention dressing with scissors using the grid-lines guideline on the backside. Hypafix has a release paper section for easier removal of the backing. The retention dressing is reusable and will allow the user to pull the adhesive up and re-affix and therefore less likely to curl when pulled on and off. The adhesive side of the retention dressing sticks securely but can be easily removed without major pain or discomfort.
