You’ve probably seen the brightly coloured strips of fabric adorning the limbs of many athletes. Those brightly coloured lines and complex patterns aren’t the latest fashion trend in body modification or adornment — they’re strips of kinesiology tape. It is well known that keeping muscles moving and improving circulation reduces pain and speeds recovery. The purpose of SpiderTech is to do just that; improve circulation, support muscles, enhance tissue repair and prevent muscle injury. SpiderTech is a non-medicated, 100% cotton, non-latex adhesive kinesiology tape that you apply to your body wherever it hurts. It provides convenient, standardized and easy to use pre-cut kinesiology tape applications called “spiders”. Not only is it breathable and sweat-proof, it will stay on during an intense workout, withstand pools and showers allowing each application to last three to five days.
SpiderTech has been proposed to alleviate pain and facilitate the removal of swelling by microscopically lifting the skin. As a result, the pressure and irritation are taken off the neural and sensory receptors, thus alleviating pain. SpiderTech integrates with the body in a super-functional manner as it has a very specific elasticity built into the weave pattern of the cotton fabric, which mimics the elasticity and thickness of human skin, allowing it to integrate, support and stabilize without adversely affecting healthy ranges of motion. Some of the most common injuries include:
Patello-femoral joint instability
Illiotibial band (ITB) syndrome
Sprains and strains
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Furthermore, the extremely low risk and often substantial benefit from using SpiderTech is worth trying!
