BETTER FOR PATIENTS Its comfortable application and removal along with secure adhesion makes it ideal for patients with
sensitive, compromised or at-risk skin, and better for all
patients whose treatment requires medical tape.
BETTER FOR NURSES By minimizing skin injury upon removal, kind-removal tape allows you to spend less time treating painful tape-related skin injuries and have more time to take care of your patients.
BETTER FOR BUDGETS Repositionable tape eliminates the extra steps needed to protect skin and reducing the incidence of skin trauma. Cumulatively, hospitals in the U.S. face from $4.7 – $11.6 million in additional costs to treat tape-related skin injuries each year.1,2,3.
