Dynamic Tape Original is available in two strengths recognisable by their colours: beige with beige tattoo and beige with black tattoo. Common to both of these tapes is high stretch, good resistance and strong recoil. It stretches much further and does not have a rigid end point like kinesiology tapes.
This design and the unique, visco-elastic properties allow it to work like a bungee cord by acting on the levers of the body aiming to provide a deceleration force, absorb load and reduce the work on injured, overloaded or fatigued tissues. It is particularly well suited to applications targeting the musculotendinous unit, functional assistance where weakness or nerve injury is present or for long multijoint applications.
The black tattoo offers a slightly higher resistance and recoil than the beige tattoo and is the more commonly used product. The beige tattoo may be preferable on more sensitive skin due to the slightly lower forces or where a more discreet taping application is required.
