What benefits distinguish Kinesio® Tex Tape from other tapes?
There are several benefits of using Kinesio® Tex Tape over other, standard types of tape. Firstly, it’s made of breathable, flexible cotton. Secondly, it’s incredibly elastic. Thirdly, it features a heat-activated adhesive that is hypoallergenic. Finally, it’s one of the most durable options on the market. However, these are only a few of the benefits that help Kinesio® Tex Tape stand out.
Does Kinesio Tape have latex?
No, Kinesio® Tape contains zero latex.
Is Kinesio Tape water resistant?
Yes, Kinesio® Tape is water-resistant. However, to achieve a maximum hold, tape should only be applied to skin that is dry, and oil-free. Also, the tape may hold better if users spend a few seconds applying pressure to it immediately after application. This brief body heat allows the adhesive to fully activate.
How does Kinesio Tape work?
Kinesio® Tape is applied to sore, tired muscles. Users should stretch the affected muscle and apply the tape from one end of the muscle to the other. Be sure to wrap the muscle somewhat loosely, producing very little to no stretch in the tape while wrapping. Doing so can prevent clotting and blood flow issues.
Is there a difference between the colors of Kinesio Tape?
There is no real difference between the colors, besides aesthetic appeal and user preference. All Kinesio® Tape products are equally strong and effective.
