What do the different colors mean? Kintex Classic Tapes are available in 8 different colors. Basically, the choice of colors plays a rather minor role, even though 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.
Tips and tricks
When applying the tape, it is essential not to touch the adhesive surface. The adhesive reacts to heat and is activated by it. Due to the stretching of the tape strip, the tape tears in the middle and the backing paper comes off. Now the tape can be applied without touching the adhesive surface.
The Kintex Kinesiology Tape is pre-stretched by 10 % on the backing paper. This means that when you apply a tape without additional tension, pre-stretch is already present.
