Kinesiology Tape – Kinesio Tape

Kinesiology tape (often called kinesio tape) by Mobility Tools. 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.
