Dynamic Tape revolutionised therapeutic taping by introducing a range of strongly elastic tapes with different grades of strength, stretch and recoil. With correct taping applications we can mechanically resist/decelerate or assist motion thereby reducing the load on the muscles, tendons, ligaments or associated structures that would normally have to control those forces. Just like a Dynamic Splint, by generating the force externally, we can protect or graduate the loading on injured, overloaded or weak tissues. The different strength, stretch and recoil properties of the various products allow us to target particular structures or movements more appropriately. Dynamic Tape is not a kinesiology tape. It is the original Biomechanical Tape ®.
Is made from very different materials
Stretches in all directions rather than just longitudinally like kinesiology tapes
Has many times the resistance and recoil likened to a bungee cord whereas kinesiology tapes and nylon tapes have gentle resistance to lift the skin
Stretches much further and doesn’t have a solid endpoint in the same way as athletic or kinesiology tapes do. This allows Dynamic Tape to be applied in the shortened position to maximise the ‘bungee’ effect and still permit full movement
Is designed to work mechanically, designed to alter movement patterns while absorbing load and re-injecting that energy back into movement, all without limiting range of motion. Kinesiology tapes are designed to work neurophysiologically, attempting to alter pain perception, muscle activity or circulation via contact with and lifting of the skin.
Originally developed for athletes, sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy, it is increasingly becoming an essential tool for therapists of all disciplines proving popular with neurological, pediatric and hand therapists.
Dynamic Tape is specially designed, highly elastic tape (over 200%) and is completely different from rigid sports tapes and kinesiology tapes. Its unique properties and four way stretch allow for truly biomechanical approach to taping, something that integrates will with a clinician's clinical reasoning process.
The tape is applied in a way that allows the elastic energy to decelerate motion and absorb load (eccentric), store energy once deceleration is complete and then re-inject it back into the system as shortening commences (concentric) in much the same way as a bungee cord. In this way it can assist weak, injured or overloaded muscles or can be used to modify movement patterns to indirectly reduce loading or improve technique.
Dynamic Tape is extremely soft, highly conformable, breathable and water resistant.
