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.
“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.”

“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 – Handball
“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.”
“I have been taped with spider tape, k-tape and athletic tape. They all have been beneficial but when I taped with Dynamic tape, I noticed that it was more comfortable, lasted longer, and allowed me to achieve full range of motion.”
Casey Buckland – LLU DPT CLASS OF 2015
“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.”
Ana David – Coordinator of Physiotherapy
“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”

Implementation, WHY IT WORKS
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
OurDynamic Tape has been thoroughly tested and recommended by FICS.
