The tape, made with hypoallergenic acrylic glue, is manufactured to be the same weight, thickness and elasticity as the skin and is therefore able to integrate with the body’s sensory system naturally. The tape helps with pain, prevention and performance. Pain reduction is achieved via neural mechanisms which result in the restoration of normal position sense and muscle activation patterns. Prevention is achieved through re-establishing functional joint stability, enhancing the necessary natural healing mechanisms and through smooth controlled limitation of potentially harmful ranges of motion. Performance enhancement is achieved indirectly through decreased repetitive strain to muscles and joints, decreased onset of muscular fatigue and the reduced occurrence of muscle cramping.
