hapla

Before applying tape it is important
to remember to round the corners
of each piece.
Rounding the corners prevents the
tape from catching on clothes and
peeling back which may reduce the
time the tape will stay adhered to the
patient.
How to cut hapla tape
Directions for use – Rounding Corners

Patient will be experiencing pain either on the central or medial portion of the heel. Ensure the foot is in a dorsiflexed position.
