A very special thank you to Dr. Kenzo Kase for this book, Kinesio® Medical Taping for the Mature Adult. This book is based on the foundational principals of Kinesio® Taping, as well as some of his new concepts from Kinesio Medical Taping which he uses to address more complicated issues and conditions, including pain, trauma and postsurgical recovery. In this book Dr Kase introduces some of his newest Kinesio Medical Taping applications. KMT™ provides an advanced level of Kinesio Taping. These techniques were formulated in a clinical environment to support active older adults in addition to improving patient outcomes in palliative care.

About this book - Dr Kase Said, “I have long been aware that skin and subcutaneous tissue are related to health and diseases in the human body. Recently, papers and research supporting this concept have been released. Looking at those research papers, and could not help but think “Ah, as I expected,” and “Thank you for saying so.” I am glad but sometimes regret the time it took. At the same time, my Kinesio Taping Method has also evolved.”

For several decades, Dr Kase has been utilizing the Kinesio Taping Method to improve patient outcomes, reduce pain, and prevent injury. Today Kinesio Taping is widely used around the world and the science keeps evolving.

KINESIO® TEX GOLD LIGHT TOUCH+ (LT)
Gentle Enough for ALL Skin Types

East meets West with the new Kinesio® Tex Gold Light Touch + Tape (LT). Kinesio does it again by providing a unique formula gentle enough for all skin types. More than a pediatric tape, LT is the perfect solution for any patients not previously candidates for elastic therapeutic tape. From pediatric to geriatric to anyone with a tendency to skin sensitivity, LT is the only choice. LT targets the dermis and superficial fascia skin layers, attracting fluid and creating space in the dermis area. The result is a multi-directional soft motion that allows for a shift of misaligned tissue into its correct position by means of light stimulation similar to memory foam.
