This gives patient the ability to freely move the joint without being restricted by the tape. This lightweight tape is put directly on the patient’s skin and can be worn for several days until it begins to peel off. This is particularly beneficial for athletes and chiropractic patients because it can withstand sweat and water.
The breathable tape allows for moisture and fresh air to circulate to and from the skin. Scores of tiny holes as well as stiffer ridges that line the tape promote air flow as well as provide a “lift” to make the tape feel lighter. KT can be worn for several days and withstands regularly showering which makes it a more appealing option to patients.
