Dynamic Tape has revolutionized therapeutic taping by introducing the world’s first range of tapes with varying grades of stretch, strength, and recoil to solve different clinical problems far more specifically.
The EXTRA STRENGTH Dynamic Tape Eco in another world first is made from recycled plastic bottles using patented technology to provide much more resistance much sooner in range (higher elastic modulus) but with slightly less recoil than Dynamic Tape Original. This is ideal for applications where there is minimal movement but firm resistance is required. Dynamic Tape Eco may therefore be more suited to applications for ligaments (e.g. fingers, thumbs, ankles, syndesmosis) and joint glides where the added benefit of elastic compression and resistance is desirable to augment force closure and stability but when full range is still required (to allow load dissipation, maintenance of balance strategies and normal function). Dynamic Tape Eco has the equivalent of 15 recycled plastic bottles in every box.
What are the advantages of Dynamic Tape?
Dynamic Tape allows the wearer to move through a full range of motion without limitation. Dynamic Tape can strongly assist or resist movement, facilitate or inhibit and offload tissue through a full range of motion. This is only possible due to the highly elastic nature and four-way stretch necessary when taping multi-joint muscles and performing complex, three-dimensional skills.
DYNAMIC TAPE IS NOT KINESIOLOGY TAPE
The differences between Kinesiology tape and Dynamic Tape:
Its primary aim is not to lift the skin like Kinesio. It is applied with the body part in a short position and the tape on stretch (the opposite to traditional Kinesio taping) so that as movement occurs, the tape resists and absorbs load, decelerating movement in much the same way as a bungee cord.
Once deceleration is complete, the energy is stored as elastic potential energy although may still be imparting a corrective force if trying to modify technique or movement patterns. As shortening occurs the tape can assist initiation in fast movements or through the range in slower movements (e.g. working as an active assist in someone who has had a stroke).
