Vantage Sports Tape, also known as Kinesiology Tape, is a valuable tool to assist with performance enhancement, athlete recovery and injury prevention.
Kinesiology tape differs from other types of strapping tape in both form and function. Most types of strapping tape are rigid and are wrapped tightly around an injured joint or muscle to provide rigid support and restrict movement. They can only be worn for short periods of time, after which they must be removed to restore movement and circulation.
Kinesiology tape, on the other hand, has unique elastic properties that allow it to provide dynamic support, protecting muscles and joints, while still allowing a safe and functional range of motion.
Rather than being wrapped completely around injured joints or muscle groups, kinesiology tape is applied directly over and around the periphery of these areas. This non-restrictive type of taping allows most applications to be worn for 4-5 days, allowing therapeutic benefits to accumulate 24/7 for the entire time they’re worn.
Vantage Sports Tape can be worn during intense exercise, showering, bathing or swimming, and dries quickly after a quick pat with a towel.
