Whether you're training for your first triathlon, getting ready for the big game, reaching a personal fitness goal, or just trying to get through the day, nothing slows you down more than pain and injury. KT Tape is a light weight, comfortable support option for dozens of common injuries and ailments.
The idea behind KT Tape is that when an area of the body is injured through impact or over-use, swelling can occur which increases pressure on muscles and tissue that can cause further discomfort and pain. It is believed that when applied correctly, KT Tape lifts and positions the skin to relieve the underlying fascia, allowing greater movement of fluids which helps promote white blood cell circulation to remove waste, cellular debris, and bacteria.
KT Tape is unique in that its elastic properties, when combined with a proprietary, latex-free adhesive, can support sore muscles, joints and tendons for up to 3 days - even through daily showers, humidity, cold, and even the pool. We're betting that KT Tape's patented Secondskin Adhesive will go as long as you do, if not longer. The acrylic based medical grade adhesive is gentle on skin so you can scratch your itch to exercise without having to scratch the itch that often comes with braces and traditional athletic tape. The tape's cotton fibers are weaved together in a mesh design that moves comfortably with the body, delivering strong support without restricting comfort and range of motion. The mesh design is also breathable and releases moisture which is critical to long lasting comfort and wearability.
