Kinesiology tape and sports tape by Mobility Tools. Kinesiology tape is available in 4 colours (Blue, Black, Beige and Pink) and from individual rolls all the way to cartons. All rolls are 5cm wide and 5m in length. Tape can be stretched to around 150% of it’s original length, i.e. a 10cm piece can be stretched to 15cm. Always consult a physio or kinesiology tape expert if you are not sure about taping technique. The tape is latex free, though a small portion of the population can get a small rash from the adhesive.
The kinesiology taping method is a rehab taping technique designed to aid the body’s natural healing process. It provides support and stability to muscles and joints without good or proper range of motion. Kinesiology taping can also prolong the benefits of a massage or manipulation performed by an expert by keeping joints and muscles supported. Often a user will see a practitioner for soft tissue work then have the tape applied to keep muscles and joints moving well.
Sports Tape is available in 10m lengths and widths of 2.5cm and 5cm. Mobility Tools sell individual rolls to cartons (2.5cm width in cartons of 288 rolls, 5cm width in cartons of 144 rolls). Sports tape is perfect for weightlifters and CrossFit athletes to wrap on the thumb to save your thumb when performing hook grip. As well as this it is also the tape of choice for rugby players. Sports tape is also called Zinc Oxide Tape.
