Kinesio Tape introduced the first kinesiology tape to the world over 30 years ago. Since then, KinesioTape has gone from a little known alternative treatment to a mainstream therapeutic modality used in clinics and hospitals around the world. As kinesiology taping gained popularity, competitive brands entered the market with innovations such as precut strips, precut applications and a n eye catching assortment of colors and patterns. Kinesio was slow to respond and brands such as RockTape, SpiderTech, PerformTex, KT Tape and StrengthTape gained market share. Last year, Kinesio introduced a line of precut applications, as well as precut fan strips. And now, Kinesio has stepped back into the limelight with a major re-engineering of its flagship product – Kinesio Tape.
Kinesio Tex Gold FP is a new version of KinesioTape with cutting edge features designed especially for health professionals. FP stands for FingerPrint, and refers to the new adhesive pattern that resembles the swirls on human fingertips. The sensation associated with the FP tape is purported to mimic gentle human touch, yet also adhere more strongly to the skin. Other advancements allow Kinesio Tape FP to provide more interaction with …
- FingerPrint adhesive pattern transfers more micro-stimulation to the epidermis and underlying fascia for enhanced therapeutic benefits
- Higher grade cotton and a new weave process with more perforations creates more breathability for greater comfort
- New micro-grip deep set adhesive pattern improves contact with skin for longer wear times
- New color added – now available in white!
- Available in 5 meter (16′) single rolls and 31.5 meter (103′) bulk rolls in 5 colors – beige, black, blue, pink and white
Kinesio Tape FP retains the core elastic properties of the original Kinesio Tape designed to be used with the official Kinesio Taping Method. The adhesive continues to be hypoallergenic and latex-free, making it suitable for all patient populations.
It appears that Kinesio has hit a home run with the introduction of Kinesio Tex FP. They managed to create a cutting edge new product that also retains all of the important properties that have made Kinesio the world leader in the kinesiology taping industry.
Note: Kinesio will continue to offer their original formulation and wave pattern adhesive under the name Kinesio Tex Classic. Kinesio Tex Classic is available 4 meter (13′) rolls in beige, black, blue, pink and white.
