What is SpiderTech?
SpiderTech is the originator of the pre-cut kinesiology tape. We use technology that was designed and engineered to move with your body and provide quick, targeted pain relief and enhanced performance for your sport. Our kinesiology tape was developed and tested by medical professionals and has been battle-tested by world-class athletes. What sets us apart is that our product is the easiest tape to apply and can be used by anyone. SpiderTech can be comfortably applied anywhere on the human body, including the face and can be worn as a facemask.
SpiderTech products are engineered to emulate the elasticity, thickness and weight of human skin. They use high-grade 100% cotton material with a 100% poly-acrylic adhesive, which makes them water-resistant and breathable. All of our products are also hypoallergenic as we don't use any latex.
We know how much your sport means to you, which is why our products are designed to be worn comfortably on the skin, even during strenuous exercise. The adhesive sticks well to the body and does not leave any residue when removed. The material used has moderate elasticity, which matches the basic elasticity found in human skin and muscle, allowing it to work with your body as naturally as possible. This provides support and stability, without adversely affecting healthy ranges of motion.
Depending on how the tape is applied, our SpiderTech products achieve their therapeutic effect naturally by either providing structural support or by altering the patient’s sensation of pain. Structurally, if the tape is applied and stretched over muscles in a shortened position, it will provide a mechanical barrier to potentially harmful ranges of motion.
The tape can disrupt and diminish pain signals through enhanced sensory stimulation. What is revolutionary about this is the effect of the continuous stimulation provided by wearing SpiderTech on the skin may help to break the cycle of chronic pain.
The bottom line is a decrease in the sensation of pain along with normalizing the neural drive to the muscles involved resulting in restored mobility and strength. SpiderTech therapy means less pain and more activity for more people.
Applying our tape is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Our current line-up features 17 pre-cut designs, each with its own videos on how to apply. Each pre-cut comes with an easy-to-use numbered system to have a step-by-step application.

Is Kinesiology Tape Effective?
When you choose to use kinesiology tape for an injury or to keep your joints strong during the competition, it is applied to stretch out the target muscle with appropriate tension. Before you apply your first piece of kinesiology tape, it is recommended that you see a physical therapist determine the proper tension for your issue. When the tape is applied properly, it will lift the skin and allow for better circulation in and around your muscles. It also helps your brain sense the orientation, location, movement and position of that body part. This is known as proprioception.
So is kinesiology tape effective?
With the popularity of kinesiology tape exploding in recent years, a lot more research has been conducted to determine the benefits of kinesiology tape. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Physiotherapy researched the effects of kinesiology tape versus placebo taping or no treatment.
In the study, it was found that kinesiology tape was not any more effective than not taping, placebo taping, or other interventions. In another study, it was found that kinesiology taping was no more effective compared to traditional pain reduction methods.
According to some professional physiotherapists, their patients said that using kinesiology tape helped them be more mindful of their form, which led to fewer injuries. On the other hand, some physicians say they see the popularity of kinesiology tape rising, but that the benefits are minor or have a strong placebo effect. With that said, they all agree on one thing; that kinesiology tape could be beneficial when it comes to muscle awareness, leading to pain control and muscle recovery.
Although more research is being conducted on kinesiology tape, athletes and physicians have seen great progress in their pain when they properly apply and use kinesiology tape.
