What is the difference between SpiderTech™ and the other forms of kinesiology products and therapies?
SpiderTech™ is the first and only company to provide the innovation of a convenient, standardized and easy to use pre-cut and ready to apply format. All SpiderTech™ applications and tape use the industry trusted and proven material from the original kinesiology taping manufacturer from Japan, Nitto Denko. SpiderTech™ provides the most updated and evidence lead educational system, establishing SpiderTech™ as the leader in Kinesiology Taping science and application.
Nitto Denko kinesiology taping products were engineered to mimic the thickness, weight and elasticity of human skin. It is made from high-grade 100% cotton material with a 100% acrylic adhesive. There is no latex in the product therefore making it hypoallergenic. The tape is water-resistant and breathable, and is recommended to be worn for approximately 5 days before re-applying an application when necessary.
The tape is designed to be worn on the skin even during strenuous exercise, and adheres well to the body without irritation in the majority of patients, typically not leaving any residue when removed. The tape material has moderate elasticity, which matches the same basic elasticity found in human skin, allowing it to work within the patient’s natural range of motion. This provides support and stability, without adversely affecting movement.
