PhysioTape kinesiotape is a high quality, waterproof, elastic cotton. The anti-allergic acrylic adhesive layer ventilates and is skin friendly. These kind of characteristics make it possible for the tape to be worn for a longer period of time, enabling tissue to recover much quicker after trauma. PhysioTape No1 is registered as a medical aid Class 1 and meets strict quality requirements.
PhysioTape has the elasticity that corresponds with that of the skin, which allows a full range of motion. Because of this elasticity various subcutaneous structures can be influenced by a variety of taping techniques. By using various techniques PhysioTape is used to treat lower back strain/pain, sports injuries, growing pains, knee and shoulder conditions and many more. The tape can also be used to prevent injuries.
How PhysioTape works
The tape will, when applied the right way, lift the upper skin and reduce the pressure which can influence:
- Activation of blood- and lymph circulation
- Pain receptors to get more “space”, which can reduce pain immediately
- Muscle functions
- Support of the joint function
- Segmental relations within the body
