Kinesiology Acti-Tape

Nutriworks Acti-Tape is the most advanced elastic therapeutic sports tape. It has its origins in therapeutic sports tapes for rehabilitation of injuries, providing support to joints and muscles, and enhancing sports performance without affecting range of motion. Acti-Tape was initially developed in Japan in the late 1970's. Now, aside from its application in rehabilitation, newer methodologies have been developed that address benefits associated with preventive health maintenance, reducing edema and pain relief.

Acti-Tape may help you with:

  • Alleviation of pain
  • Relaxing overused and overextended muscles
  • Repositioning of joints
  • Reducing edema, inflammation and discomfort
  • Supporting rehabilitation from muscular injuries

Features of Nutriworks Acti-Tape:

  • Water resistant - can withstand showers and athletic activity like swimming
  • Allows muscles to perform a full range of motion, easily and comfortably
  • Highly breathable - efficiently channels air and sweat to maintain skin integrity
  • Latex free, hypoallergenic
  • Effective for 3-4 days

The methodology behind Acti-Tape is referred to by different names such as neuromuscular taping, sports taping or medical taping. Medical taping has helped countless athletes, professional and amateur alike, maintain physical excellence even when subject to extremely harsh training regimes and intensive sports events. It is increasingly common during sporting events to see participants using these colorful sports tapes applied to joints and muscles. This increased visibility is resulting in the broader adoption of such taping methods amongst people who exercise regularly and who may feel the need on occasion for extra support.

Acti-Tape is a high-quality therapeutic sports tape from Nutriworks that is manufactured in accordance to strict quality (GMP & ISO) and hygiene standards. Acti-Tape is a highly elastic, non-latex body surgical tape made of thin porous cotton fabric with an adhesive. Lines of adhesive are applied in a special wave-like pattern with areas between these waves that are adhesive-free. This alternating pattern allows for greater air permeability and the tape is very comfortable to wear. It provides a new option in muscle rehabilitation and pain relief for everyone. All this along with the added option of making a very fashionable and colorful athletic statement!

Who can use Acti-Tape?

Everyone can use and benefit from it! Sports tapes like Acti-Tape are now widely used by professional athletes, trainers, podiatrists and orthopedists worldwide. Since it is non-medicated, pregnant women, children, office workers and the elderly who need muscle support and protection will also find it useful. Concurrent application whilst undergoing physical therapy may optimize the effect of such therapy. It may be applied to assist with relief of lower back strain/pain, subluxation, disc herniation, knee conditions, tight hamstrings, groin injuries, rotator cuff injuries, whiplash, tennis elbow, patella tracking disorder, pre- and post-surgical edema, ankle sprains, etc. Such broad application makes Acti-Tape your best partner for your active lifestyle.
