What is Kinesiology tape?

Kinesiology tape, k-tape or Kinesio tape is used in a variety of sporting applications. It helps drain lymph fluids as well as activate, or deactivate muscles.

Kinesiology taping improves the body’s natural healing process by helping to increase blood flow around the muscle. It is non-restrictive, allowing for a full range of motion; the wave pattern adhesive backing moves with the skin and muscles.

Our Kinesiology tape offers consistent stretch with a great elastic memory. It keeps it’s length when removed from the backing paper and keeps its tension the whole time it on. Superb adhesive (5N/cm) and stays on for up to 7 days. Water resistant, including shower immersions. We use hypoallergenic glue to reduce irritation on the skin during wear.

Our Advanced Kinesiology Tape is Ultra-light and ultra-thin. It stretches consitently, is water resistant and sticks even longer. Pre-cut tape is already cut making it east and convenient to use.
Applying Kinesio tape.

Prepare the tape first by cutting into strips ready to use. Cut the ends in a curve so there are no sharp corners. This helps prevent it coming away from the skin once applied.

How to apply kinesiology tape

Although there are a range of specialist taping techniques the basic principles for applying the tape to skin are similar. Fold each strip of tape over at around 1/4 to 1/3 down and tear the protective backing along the line of the fold. Apply the tape along the length of the muscle then rub over the surface to fully activate the glue.
