Love this stuff... just learned about it. It is the same material as the stuff that holds down the pods... it can be used horizontally to hold down a pod or cut in small pieces to hold down an edge that is coming off... how ever you need it.. it sticks great to the pod adheisive stuff...and really helps stop the jiggles. And..... way better than the duct tape my son was using! LOL

Nice,

I might give it a try when I run out of Opsite. Hypafix costs 1/4 as much.

I won't be running out of Opsite anytime soom though.

Duct tape? LOL! Now, that's a male mind indeed.

No kidding, male mind. I didn't even pause to consider that somebody was duct taping a medical device to themselves.

We use Kenesio Tape. It still allows the pod to be flexible and is waterproof but I like the Hypafix too :)
