Acti-Tape Step by Step Instructions: Ankle Support
In a lying position, place the foot at a right angle. Apply two small I-strips on the outside of the ankle. One strip points towards the toes and the other points towards the heel to form a V. Smooth down firmly.
Apply an X-strip under the heel with a moderate stretch of the centre part. Apply the upper legs of the strip with a moderate stretch across the front of the ankle up the leg.
Apply the lower legs of the strip with a moderate stretch behind the ankle towards the calf, lifting the ankle slightly to do so.
Apply an I-strip starting from the front of the foot with a moderate stretch around the outside of the ankle and spiraling up the leg to the front of the shin.
Smooth down all strips firmly to complete.
The yellow portion indicates moderate stretch of the strip.
