    i think the use below the knee is for Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s Knee). you can search about it here. what kind of bandage it is, i have no idea. interested in finding out too. never seen any in the pharmacy. maybe have to ask the pharmacist. should be like a normal bandage except it has adhesive. but since i never saw one, i cannot confirm. the other ones that you saw was skin color right? tried to find a picture of a player that use one but cannot find it. usually i see the players apply them in the thigh area and calf area. body and shoulder i cannot see because they wear shirts. but i remember a picture of lin dan with that kind of tape near his waist or something. and that thread was asking about the kind of tape used too. try to do a search then. good luck. :D basically it is used for support of muscles especially if you have small injury there. correct me if i am wrong.

    athletic tape used under the knee to alleviate jumpers knee. can also be known as a patella strap.

    sorry to budge in on this thread but since it is about tape/bandages, my skin would have an allergic reaction if i use tape (ie the adhesive brown ones). so what kind of tape should i use instead? the ones for sensitive skin or what?

    you can just go to a drug mart and see if they carry a knee strap

    Ilpjlau, tried zinc-oxide tapes? (or do you americans spelss Zink like we do?)

    Anyway, the straps are just general Knee support, it aids with jumpers knee, but also with just a 'regular' overuse injury.
    I had my knees taped in like that for about a month because I was just overtrained (physically, not mentally ;)...why do I do these things to myself? :eek:)

    check out the elastoplast site. there's some info on how to apply the tape and such and if i am not mistaken how to apply on sensitive skin. :D

    me, i just use the bandage. the tube kind. like socks. i can get it in the pharmacy. it is sold in a big roll with different sizes and sold like cloth (per meter). i bought it for RM16 per meter. then i can cut it up to whatever length i want. mostly i use it for the patellar thingy because mainly it is the knees that get the most battering when i play. the good thing about adhesive athletic tape is the fact that they dont roll or bunch up. once applied, will stay like that and give good support.

    It's used as a preventative bandage to protect the muscles and the joints around the knees.
    Tennis players also use this.
