Before undertaking strenuous activities where you will be bending your knees, it is worthwhile to protect your knees using knee tape. This special type of tape is designed to provide added support to the muscles to help lower the likelihood of sustaining an injury, compared to not using any taping product. In addition, the tape helps protect people who have already had a previous knee injury, as well as those recovering from a current injury.
The knee tape integrates with the body so that you do not realize it is there. The weave pattern of the tape is uniquely designed to provide elasticity and move as your knee and leg moves. As a result, it replicates the same elasticity and thickness of your skin, while supporting and stabilizing the area, without adversely affecting your normal range of motion.
Besides protecting your knees, you can apply the same type of tape to multiple regions on your body. With many precut designs available, it is possible to increase support for your ankles, elbows, wrists, shoulder, neck, back, groin, and other muscle groups. Go ahead and tape your entire body when you want complete protection for all of your muscle groups.
SpiderTech knee and body tape is made from 100 percent breathable cotton and is completely latex-free. It is completely waterproof, so you do not have to worry about the tape coming off if it gets wet. You can wear the tape for up to five days at a time before it has to be changed.
