Kinesio tapes are stretchable tape bandages that can lead to increased blood circulation, e.g. in muscle tissue, and thereby initiate an increase in metabolism by stimulating the tissue. Through a wave pattern incorporated into the tape, gentle restoring forces on the skin become effective and also have a soothing, massaging effect.
Painfully tense muscles are relieved and swelling conditions after accidents or operations can be reduced. Furthermore, muscle coordination can be promoted and the nervous system stimulated.
