Strap up those injuries
We know what you’re thinking. Gaffer tape. Firebox are selling gaffer tape; and have photoshopped it onto sexy, sporty types to make me buy it. Well you’d be right in thinking it comes on a roll, but that’s where the similarities end for KT Kinesiology Tape
. Because this futuristic stuff has been scientifically developed as the next generation of support for sports injuries and strains.
Indeed, through the clever application of this apparently simple stuff, you can support and protect all manner of muscle groups
. And used properly it will even boost recovery and reduce pain
(it says here). So how does it work?
Well, unlike a typical elastic sock or restrictive brace, the mechanical mesh weave of KT Tape moves and flexes with you; providing unparalleled freedom of movement
while supporting your sore bits at the same time. Just follow the instructions on the box (or watch one of the many handy videos on the KT Youtube channel
) to learn how to apply it. In most cases just two pieces of strategically-placed tape will be enough.
Perfect for sore joints
Will keep you going!
The makers claim it’s perfectly suited to all manner of ailments, including ITBS, shin splints, plantar fasciitis and knee pain. But it’s not just restricted to land-based activities. KT Tape is also completely waterproof
. So it’s great for swimmers, divers, occasional snorkellers and more. You can even whack some on your feet for padding around on a hot beach.
Thanks to the clever adhesive
, this remarkable material will stay firmly in place for as long as you need it. But as soon as you’re done, you can peel it away with a finger and thumb. So much for gaffer tape...
