I’m currently trying Spartan brand tape. So far, it sticks really well.
I haven’t tried this trick but an EDSer told my geneticist that they paint a thin layer of pepto on their skin and let it dry before putting on tape and it helps protect their skin when they remove it. My skin gets a bit ripped up if I’m careless when removing tape, sometimes it doesn’t matter how careful I am. Putting coconut oil on the tape and waiting several minutes before removing it has helped when I’ve been particularly sensitive. If anyone has tried the pepto trick, I’m curious if it works without interfering with the adhesive.
I have bilateral multi directional instability (forward and down are worse than backwards) in my shoulders. PT, strengthening, and general positional awareness have helped for when I’m conscious but I sublux and dislocate in my sleep often. I just sent back a shoulder brace that looked promising but turned out to be entirely useless for what I needed. I’d like to try this brace by Bauerfeind but have to find out if my insurance would cover it. I’m wary of even going through the hassle of trying to find a braces that offer support without restricting all movement and are considered “durable medical equipment.” My PT thinks something designed for posture correction might possibly be helpful, so that’s the next plan. I need something that pulls my shoulders back into the sockets and prevents my scapulas from winging.
Edited to add links. Also, a shoulder surgeon told me to try a sully brace for my shoulders but boobs.
