If you are planning to buy kinesiology tape, then the following questions are important for you to consider.
What should I look out for when purchasing kinesiology tape?
When purchasing kinesiology tape (also k tape, kinesiotape or physio tape), one always has to deal with a consideration between the cost and the quality of the product. Due to the popularity of the method, many variations of low budget tape have appeared on the market in recent years. However, this low budget tape can cause problems such as skin irritation, bruised skin, too little stretchability and sticking power. In addition, these tapes often are prone to fluctuations in quality and different glue patterns by different suppliers. When purchasing, always pay attention to producers who can guarantee controlled quality.
“I am using CureTape, a product that convinced me from the beginning because my clients tolerate it on the skin until it comes off by itself, even up to 2 weeks. It is easy to take off and also easy to apply for those who feel confident to use it at home. I haven’t seen any skin irritation, not even complaints about an uncomfortable feeling. The general response of my customers is very positive, they feel the support of the tape for muscles and joints and the release of tension and pain.”

Which CureTape® should I buy?
For all treatments use can be made of CureTape® Classic or CureTape® Art, which are made of cotton with elastane and provided with an acrylic glue layer. The special sizes (1 cm, 2.5 cm and 7.5 cm wide) of the CureTape® Classic variant have, for example, also been developed for lymph taping. In addition to these variations, the CureTape Punch, with the hole pattern, is used for tape applications that require extra stretch and a three-dimensional working direction. With the CureTape® Punch variation, the skin and fascia can be stimulated within the area of the openings and the skin has more ability to ventilate.
In addition, CureTape® Sports is also available. It is made from viscose with elastane and provided with a 25% stronger acrylic adhesive layer. This version is suitable for intensive sports but also easily to use for foot, hand and knee tape constructions. Viscose dries faster and tape over tape sticks even better due to the stronger adhesive layer.
Finally, there is the option of cross taping through CrossLinq®. In this therapy method, raster plasters are used for the treatment of trigger points, pain points, acupuncture points and for influencing energy pathways in the body.
