Need support for your lower back or larger muscle groups that will endure your toughest workout? KT Tape®Pro Wide™is here for you. It has been designed to relieve pain and provide support where you need it, staying in place through multiple workouts. * KT Tape®Pro Wide™was created with performance in mind, to work in the harshest environments. It is the world's first 100% synthetic kinesiology tape, re-engineered with stronger adhesive, to outlast anything you can throw at it.
KT Tape Pro Wide
KT Tape® Pro Wide™ can be worn in the shower, in the pool, or while riding waves at the beach. Synthetic performance fibers are fast-drying, water resistant, and provide superior strength, stretch, and recoil. KT Tape Pro® Wide also features an adhesive formulated to remain in place for 4-7 days.
KT Tape Pro® fibers feature a stronger elastic core which delivers better support for muscles, joints and tendons without restricting comfort and range of motion. This improved elastic core retains its elasticity far better over time and provides more durable support than cotton kinesiology tape, lasting as long as you need it. Like top athletes, it relies on both strength and endurance to get the job done.
KT Tape® Pro Wide™ is pre-cut and ready to apply right out of the box. Pre-cut strips have rounded corners which help to prevent the corners from catching on clothing or the edges fraying. Each roll contains 10 pre-cut strips that are 10 inches long and 4 inches wide, double the width of our KT Tape Pro®.
KT Tape® products are Hypoallergenic, Latex-Free, Natural Rubber-Free! This means that our products have been designed and developed to contain fewer potential substances that can trigger allergic reactions. While our goal is to provide you products that won't cause any irritations, if you are known to have sensitive skin or prone to irritations, we recommend testing a small piece of KT Tape applied with no stretch on tougher skin such as the knee or forearm before utilizing our product line.
Healthcare professionals have been teaching patients for years how to apply kinesiology tape themselves. Don’t be afraid to jump in and just go for it the first time you try and tape yourself. It generally takes 3 or 4 times to get comfortable with taping, then soon you’ll be taping like the pros.
Here are a few tips to help you get started:
Make sure the skin is clean and dry, free from lotions/oils (suntan lotion, skin conditioner, topical treatments, etc). We’ve even found that some bath soaps have moisturizers in them that leave a residue behind, so if you want to play it safe just clean the skin with rubbing alcohol before applying.
If applying KT Tape on a joint, be sure the joint is in a fully bent position. If the tape is applied over a knee or elbow in an extended position the tape will pull off as the joint is moved.
Never stretch the first or the last 2 inches of the tape on either end. These ‘anchors’ of tape on the ends should be applied directly to the skin without stretching, otherwise it will pull up and will not stick.
Lastly, be sure to set the adhesive by firmly rubbing the tape & make sure all the edges are down. For best results apply the tape 30-60 minutes before athletic activity.
