A different method to keep taping dry.

Posted by Dr. Zuckerman on 3/31/01 at 12:29 (043150)

I have been using nylon knee high stockings over the tapings of the feet.
I have allowed the patients to get the foot wet, soak the foot in hot water.

The patients really like the protection that the nylon stocking give to keep moisture away from the foot and the tape under the stocking. So my idea is to use the knee high stocking over the tape. If anyone has read or seen the taping that Scott uses maybe by placing a nylon over top the tape and then placing one strip around the nylon you can wear the taping alot longer.
