WHY KINESIO®?

QUALITY YOU CAN TRUST

Many households are familiar with the name Kinesio®. However, did you know that Kinesio® is the specific brand name of an Elastic Therapeutic Tape (ETT) and Elastic Taping Method (ETM)? Much like Tylenol®, Nike®, Under Amour®, Dr. Scholls® and Band-Aid® , Kinesio® is its own brand of products (Kinesio® Tape) education and services (Kinesio Taping® Method.)

Only the Kinesio® name can offer you the highest quality, most authentic and maximum treatment benefits. We put our signature on that! Authentic Kinesio® quality comes from almost 40 years (1979 - 2018) of research, education and experience in manufacture, design and therapeutic results. You won’t get that from Brand X, Y or Z.  

Since 1979, in Japan and then worldwide, Kinesio® has been committed to improving the quality of life of every human body, with non-opioid treatments in the fields of pediatrics, geriatrics, occupational and physical therapy, rehabilitation, neurology... oh yes, and athletics as well! 

Dr. Kenzo Kase did not just come up with an idea for tape and then sit back to see what others could do with it. His priority has always been making his patients feel better. In addition to the input of thousands of trained practitioners and instructors worldwide, he continues to be active in the development of applications, products and adaptations – all designed with the goal of better patient care.

Progress is constant, as new therapeutic results are considered. Kinesio® does not jump on every bandwagon in the marketing world: every innovation is tested extensively by Dr. Kase and his team of experts, and by trained clinicians in the field.

 

FIRST CAME THE METHOD, THEN CAME THE TOOL

Kinesio® Tape is the original Elastic Therapeutic Tape, introduced to the market in 1979 by Dr. Kenzo Kase.  Initially, he had developed the tape for elderly osteoarthritis patients. Now most commonly recognized in the sports arena, Kinesio® Tape is still used primarily in a medical setting. As the most recommended ETT method and ETT tape by health care professionals worldwide, Kinesio® is the only therapeutic tape company in the world that is backed by the worldwide efforts of more than 100,000 independent clinicians… and counting!


 "We use this tape on my son to help orthopedic problems he was born with. It works wonderfully. Depending on where the tape is placed, it will usually stay on for about 5 days. 5 days is all his therapist recommends for wear anyway. My other sons also use the tape during baseball season. Again, it stays on for about 3-4 days. I have even used it for back pain. The immediate relief was great. I would definitely recommend this tape to anyone. There is a sheet inside that shows you how to tape for common problems". - Ravenousreader (Walmart.com)
