Kinesio Tape, also called Kinesio Tex Tape, is the original elastic adhesive tape developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in the early 1970s.
Kinesio Tape is safe enough for a baby’s sensitive skin, and gentle enough for aging individuals, flexible enough for rehabilitation, durable enough to support working muscle, joint or ligament and strong enough for athletes at any level.
In cases when the tape is applied by practitioners the tape provides optimized stimulation based on space, movement, and cooling which allows the body’s natural healing power is able to do its work.
Kinesio brand tape is the specific tool of the Kinesio Taping® Method, and the basis of the ability to tape a wide variety of patients.
Through the shared clinical experience of our trained Kinesio Taping® practitioners, Kinesio® has developed our adhesive to address a wide range of patient care needs, from pediatrics to senior citizens and everyone else in between.
