Kintex Classic Tape for Kinesiology applications is very flexible and stretchy due to the wave-like S-shaped structure of the hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive. The optimal adaptation to the structures of the human body such as the skin, fascia, muscles, meridians etc. is ensured and promoted by our tape. Our kinesiology tape is very durable, waterproof and tear-resistant.
Application- comfort and duration
Just a few minutes after the tape is applied, it is no longer perceived as annoying and therefore there is no restriction of activities by the tape. Swimming, bathing, showering or doing sports is no problem with the tape. The breathable material of the tape allows sweating and allows the skin underneath to breathe.
The application of the kinesiology tape takes about one week, with the main effect occurring in the first 3-5 days after application. Allergic reactions rarely occur when using the tape. These are usually caused by the current intake of medication or intensified by simultaneous consumption of alcohol or nicotine. In case of doubt, please consult your doctor or pharmacist.

What do the different colors mean?
Kintex Classic Tapes are available in 8 different colors.
Basically, the choice of colors plays a rather subordinate role, even if the colors can be used supportively for therapy. According to kinesiology color theory, which is based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the colors red and pink are considered activating, blue and green cooling, black and dark blue strengthening and beige and yellow neutral. Many physical therapists leave the choice of tape color to their patients.
The reason for this is simple: the patient should feel comfortable with the tape and not find it disturbing.
Our Kintex Kinesiology Tape is very versatile and can be used for a variety of problems, e.g. pain or movement restrictions can be alleviated by a tape. A treatment of headaches, migraines, arthrosis, muscular hardening, intervertebral disc problems, lymphedema, menstrual problems and many other areas of application is possible, among others.
