Dynamic Tape acts mechanically like a spring to strongly decelerate or assist motion to improve movement patterns. From foot drop to football, Dynamic Tape is a trusted ally for leading athletes, clinicians and patients.
This can help to reduce
Quality of life is determined by our ability to perform our normal daily activities. For someone recovering from a stroke, that might be to grasp a cup. For others, it might be to run a marathon. Effects can be immediate, observable and measurable.
Dawn GulickTimothyI have used Dynamic Tape extensively throughout the lasteight years with athletes from: UKA in preparation andduring London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games; the Jamaican sprint squad; the senior England rugby team; and Saracens RFC, as well as my general client base in private practice. I have found it to be a great adjunct to therapy and my clinical paradigms both in the acute stage of injury and in facilitating return to sport either through movement correction or to maximise tissue and joint mechanics at the top end.
Dynamic Tape is completely different to the other tapes on the market. In an elite tennis environment where athletes need to move across multiple planes it allows this range of movement whilst still providing biomechanical assistance. The abilkity to change the loading pattern of a joint or just simply decrease the load required by a muscle with Dynamic Tape makes it very effective as a treatment tool. It is an extremely useful option to have in both the rehabilitation and competition setting.
Dynamic Tape is the treatment tool I have been looking for for such a long time! Working with Varsity athletes, taping is part of my daily practice and can have a quick impact on my treatment outcome… and my patient’s performance. This innovative product bridges the gap taping has been facing before: it provides the biomechanical correction desired without sacrificing mobility. Easy to use, resistant and effective, Dynamic Tape is now an absolute must in my toolbox.
Harlequins have been using Dynamic Tape for 4 seasons now. It has become a staple in our tape cupboard. We find the elasticity and strength of recoil helps our tendons train for longer without becoming more symptomatic. It also seems to have an analgesic effect on the same tendons.
In the last 12 months we have now integrated Dynamic Tape into both our heavy shoulder and ankle strapping as it gives better outer range support without limiting range too much. Each year we seem to use more and more tape, we love it at Quins.

Dynamic tape is very different from other tapes in the market. As an example, my taped foot feels much more reactive than usual… and that’s down to the elasticity

Dynamic Tape has enabled us to manage Achilles tendonopathy much more effectively than in the past. The quality of the tape, specifically the multi-directional elasticity, ensures it is highly beneficial for a multitude of pathologies.
– Joe Collins, Head of Medical with Saracens
Dynamic Tape has proven, without a doubt, to be an effective treatment tool in the recovery of our athletes. In addition to facilitating our work as Physiotherapists – in the context of treatment – it has also been a very useful tool in optimizing the work of athletes on the field.
The versatility of the Dynamic Tape makes it unique, as its large longitudinal distensibility distances it from any comparison with the Kinesio Taping. If possible, it will be surely a partnership to maintain.

In highly competitive sport, in which load control is essential due to the aggressions that athletes suffer daily during training and/or a game, Dynamic Tape emerges as an innovative product that allows you to, from a biomechanical point of view, manage overload periods (off-loading) in injured tissues without interfering with the motion patterns along a certain range that will contribute to success in their sport.
-João Ribeiro, Sports Physiotherapist, S.L. Benfica Portgual, Handball
In a highly competitive sport like soccer, where specific charges and technicalities have to be highly effective, the Dynamic Tape contributes in a very profitable way.Its elastic properties differentiate it from everything that exists on the market, which facilitates in reducing loads on the joints, without limiting the amplitudes of motion, and in improving the performance of our athletes.
-Pedro Fernandes, Sports Physiotherapist, S.L. Benfica Portgual, Futsal
I preferred the Dynamic Tape over other tapes because of the flexibility it gives. I have suffered from back pain and wearing the Dynamic Tape improved my movement while playing or even times where I wasn’t playing I felt I had greater movement.
-Simon Dawkins, San Jose Earthquakes and Jamaica National Team
I liked Dynamic Tape because it provided more stability to my knee compared to the other tapes I tried. While wearing it, I felt more comfortable playing at the highest level in MLS and World Cup qualifiers with the stability and comfort it provided.
-Anibal Godoy, San Jose Earthquakes and Panama National Team
The more I use Dynamic Tape, the less kinesiology tape I use. Clearly, KT has its place in the strapping World. However, I am realizing that we (I) have been using KT attempting to affect mechanical outcomes. Without a doubt, Dynamic Tape is the ‘Real Deal’ when mechanical outcomes are the objective. Another tool in the tool box; one that does a MUCH better job for my orthopedic needs. This is the reason why I include it in my strapping classes at NWHSU and welcome the FICS/Dynamic Tape partnership.

I was sold on Dynamic Tape when I witnessed the ability of the tape to facilitate movement as opposed to restrict it. I have used it successfully with plantar fascitis, scapular stabilization, and supraspinatus unloading. It appears to me that Dynamic Tape enhances the ability to strengthen a tissue by reducing passive insufficiency. By leaving the tape on for days, patients can incorporate functional tasks while in an improved length-tension relationship.
– Dawn Gulick, DPT, PhD, ATC, CSCS, Professor of PT at Widener University
Dynamic Tape is a game changer. It should be a requirement in any practitioners’ arsenal of tools. Due to its innovative properties, I can use it for everything from rehab to performance and as such it has virtually replaced every other type of tape I use in my office and that’s saying a lot consider I tape over 90% of my patients

Major Product Lines
Indications for Dynamic Taping are grounded firmly in research encompassing pain science, pathomechanics and pathophysiology and are consistent with the Biopsychosocial Approach first proposed by Engel in 1977.
Research is only as good as its interpretation, application and implementation. Sound clinical reasoning and hypothesis formation and testing based on a thorough assessment is central to our approach.
When Dynamic Taping is indicated and applied correctly, results are immediate, observable and generally objectively measurable. No faith required.
Dynamic Tape is NOT a kinesiology tape. Its unique properties, 4-way stretch and different grades of stretch, strength, and recoil have revolutionized how clinicians think about therapeutic taping. Dynamic Tape can create several kilograms of force acting as an external muscle to help take load, assist where weak or injured or to correct movement and function. It is highly breathable, dries quickly and does not restrict motion making it arguably the most comfortable and effective tape available.
Is made from recycled plastic bottles and has a higher elastic modulus so stiffens very quickly when stretched. It is ideal when high forces and small movements are involved or when resistance more than recoil is required. It is recommended for joint and ligament applications.
You now have the option to purchase your packs in a reusable dispenser. We have abolished single-use plastics in our packaging. Dynamic Tape now comes in tins packed in a recycled box or tin dispenser. Tape can be cut straight from the dispenser using the guide slots.
Dynamic Tape is latex free and uses a strong but low allergy medical grade acrylic adhesive from a Japanese company to withstand the toughest punishment. Follow the application guidelines for best results.
Finally a comfortable pair of taping scissors with a blunt nose to get under tapes and bandages and large soft finger loops, so your fingers don’t get a caning. Teflon coated to reduce sticking.
Dynamic Tape has been thoroughly tested and recommended by FICS.
