Why we taped the injured fingers with buddy

Use Medical Cloth Tape

cloth tape

Buddy taping is best done with medical cloth tape. Medical cloth tape is woven in such a way that it can be easily torn along either crosswise or lengthwise. It is also waterproof and has less “give” than other, less-sturdy tapes.

Medical tape can be cut lengthwise to fit. Joints nearer to the tip of the finger may require a narrower piece of tape than those closer to the knuckle.

You can create whatever width you need by starting a small tear at the end of the tape. Once you’ve done that, the tape will continue to come off the roll in whatever width you’ve created.
