Kinesiology Tape is latex-free, hypoallergenic cloth tape designed to be gentle to the skin, comfortable for days at a time and allow normal mobility through any stage of the rehabilitation process.

Kinesio Tape alleviates discomfort and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation, reducing, pressure while enabling a more effective flow of blood and lymphatic fluid in and out of the target area.

Kinesio taping is a therapeutic taping method that allows for treatment of all types of clinical conditions such as orthopedic, neurologic, and even autonomic pathologies in age groups. The application guidelines allow for and assist normal circulation/lymphatic flow, normal muscle function, remodeling of fascial tissue, and can improve joint balance.

The heat activated acrylic adhesive is bonded to the fabric in a wave pattern similar to fingerprints. This assists the lifting of the skin, often seen as convolutions. The breathability and gentle adhesive allow for repeated applications without skin irritation. Like the skin, Kinesio Tex tape is porous. The combination of the cotton latex-free fabric and the wave pattern adhesive improves patient comfort by allowing the skin to breathe. The water-resistant protectorate applied to the cotton fibers resists moisture penetration and allows for “quick drying”. This assures that the patient may shower and the tape will remain effective and in a good position for three to five days.

Product features include 100% high-grade cotton for comfort and air-permeability, 140% elasticity – same flexibility as human skin and muscles, heat activated, very light, mild and hypo-allergenic adhesive, 100% latex-free, and durability – average usage allows 3-5 days per application.
