Features of Bandage and tape scissors
Blunted or rounded tip
Bandage scissors typically have a blunted or rounded tip to minimize the risk of accidental injury during use. This design helps prevent puncturing or cutting the skin while cutting through bandages or tapes.
Serrated or non-slip blades
The blades of bandage scissors often have serrations or non-slip features. These help provide better grip and control when cutting through materials like fabric or adhesive tapes, allowing for precise and clean cuts.
Bandage scissors often have ergonomic handles designed for comfortable use. They may feature cushioned grips or finger loops to provide a secure and comfortable hold during cutting.
These bandage scissors are usually made of durable materials such as stainless steel to withstand frequent use and maintain sharpness over time. This ensures they can handle cutting through various types of bandages and tapes without bending or becoming dull.
Applications of Bandage and tape scissors
Kinesiology Tape Scissors
Kinesiology tape is a protective tape specially designed for skin and joints, but it is very sticky, so if you use ordinary scissors, it is very easy to damage and greatly reduce the service life. The jagged design of kinesiology tape scissors can easily solve this problem. It allows you to cut kinesiology tape into any shape as you like without jamming or burrs.
Cohesive Bandage Scissors
Cohesive bandage is a self-adhesive bandage, which is mainly used for postoperative dressing or pet dressing. Although it can be torn by hand, if you want to remove it quickly after wrapping many layers, you still need to use cohesive bandage scissors. Cohesive bandage scissors can help you quickly cut open the wrapped part, without the need to open layer by layer.
Sports Tape Scissors
Sports tape is a super sticky tape. It has no elasticity and is mainly used to stabilize joints. In an emergency, it can be used as a simple plaster cast. Because it is very viscous and has no elasticity, it will become very hard after wrapping many layers. So it is not realistic to disassemble layer by layer, sports tape scissors can help you solve this problem. Sports tape scissors can also be called athletic tape scissors.

Any medical equipment (e.g. scalpels, forceps) that comes into contact with the wound itself must be sterilized before use. Equipment that will not come into contact with wounds (such as medical scissors) should be sterilized between patients. If you are using it as kinesiology tape scissors or sports tape scissors, you don’t need to sterilize it.
The tip of the lower blade has a flat blunt nodule designed to glide between the bandage and the skin without cutting the skin.
We recommend oiling your scissors whenever they feel a little rough – when that happens, you know how it feels. Exact times vary from person to person and depend on how often they are used and the kind of material.
Scissors need to be cleaned as often as they get dirty, so it depends on where you use them. If your scissors are often used to cut kinesiology tape, sports tape, they may become stickier faster. In this case, it must be cleaned immediately, otherwise it will affect the use of scissors.
