A better kinesiology taping solution
Dr. Kenzo Kase and a team of product engineers developed Kinesio tape in the 1970s as an alternative to the stiff, uncomfortable products already on the market. They developed an athletic tape preferred by elite athletes and their trainers, yet gentle enough for children and the elderly. Unlike existing products, Kinesio tape allowed for full range of motion and didn’t irritate the skin.
Kinesio Tape is:
- 100% made from a gentle cotton fiber strip
- 100% medical grade acrylic adhesive
- 100% latex-free
- Comfortable and effective for multi-day wear
Perfectly prepared by the tape experts at Kinesio, you can’t go wrong with precuts for the foot, knee, low back, neck, and shoulder. Save yourself time and hassle by keeping precuts handy.
