Tetra Médical offers you a new range of kinesiology tapes, intended for amateur and professional athletes.
TETRATAPE kinesiology tapes are pre-cut adhesive elastic strips intended to prevent injuries, support joints, and improve muscle function during sports. These are strapped differently according to the area under treatment.
They are available in various plain colours (blue, black, pink, beige, etc.) and personalised patterns (camouflage, zebra, etc.) all with the same strength and resistance properties.
A box contains 20, 25×5 cm adhesive strips.
What is kinesiology?
It is a discipline that specialises in the prevention, treatment, and performance of the musculoskeletal system. Kinesiology tapes are an adhesive elastic tape that have properties similar to those of the skin (weight, thickness, elasticity) allowing the muscle to be dynamically supported and accompanying movement without limiting joint mobility. Anyone practicing a physical activity can use kinesiology tapes.
Why choose Tetratape kinesiology strips?
Apply to clean, dry, non-oily skin at least 30 minutes before exercise. Do not use on wounds or on problem skin. Gently remove the strip immediately after use. If itching, skin irritation, or pain occurs, stop using the product immediately.
Clean and dry the skin. Make sure the skin has not been treated with oily creams or lotions. Identify the uncomfortable area by moving the joints or muscles. Detach a Tetratape strip. Gently place the tape on naturally relaxed skin, removing some of the paper to stick the tape on and then peeling off the rest. Do not apply in a circular fashion to avoid a tourniquet effect. Carefully smooth the strips during application to avoid the formation of creases.
Neck, shoulders, wrists, elbows, back, knees, calves, ankles, etc.
