Skin adhesion

Undercoating of kinesiologic tape from Nylon is contributing in large parts to therapeutic possibilities of users.

The wave form adhesive used for most cotton tapes doesn’t limit the direction of the tapes activities as often is wrongly asserted. In the first run wave form adhesives provide for drainage to let wet drain off as fast as possible – e. g. at physical strain. This is very important because cotton fibres swell fast and extend when wet (swetting, bathing, taking a shower etc.). Also humidityputs on weight to cotton tapes, additionally affecting the adhesive features in a negative way, what in turn affects the possibilities of treatment. And cotton tapes get dirty easily while being wet.

For the new HealthTape we have succesfully used adhesives for many years. These are applied to the entire surface for providing a high adhesive strength, extreme robustness and a long duration of application.

After the application Kinesiologic Tapes from Nylon can be stripped from the dermis without residues; Wetness and dryness do not effect the easy and free of pain stripping.

Treatment

Unlike cotton tapes HealthTapes stay elastic during the whole application. This should be considered when using Kinesiologic Tapes from Nylon.

For the application muscles have to be prestretched and the Kinesiologic Tape from Nylon has to be stretched gently. It’s in the users rich experience to stretch kinesiologic tape from Nylon as much as needed for excellent therapeutical results.

If improperly applied, the high elasticity of 10% prestretched Kinesiologic Tape from Nylon can cause slight skin irritations at the ends. Irritations are not caused by allergic reactions. A toxicological analysis by the dermatological clinic at the University of Jena has proven that the HealthTapes adhesive does not cause any toxicological effects.
