At CEP, we are proud to offer KT Tape Pro which we
have found to have superior durability for those athletes rehabbing,
recovering and training under the toughest conditions. Our clinical
trials have shown KT Tape Pro to last up to 7 days for one application.
In the KT Tape product family, KT Tape Pro is the choice for clinicians who want
more out of a light elastic tape. This product unites exceptional value and
quality: each roll contains an improved clinically-appropriate adhesive. The
superiority of the adhesive resides in the "Step Wave Pattern." This pattern
allows for 25% more adhesive and increases the tape's usability around the
contours of the body, resulting in increased durability and comfort - even in
100% high-grade cotton: enhances breathability
Heat-activated latex-free adhesive: meets needs
of even the most sensitive skin and will not deactivate in water
Elasticity: simulates skin's natural give and
stretch - "SecondSkin Effect" - and lasts longer than other tape
applications (up to 5 days)
StepWave adhesive pattern: provides increased
durability and comfort
Stability: supports without restricting range of motion
Therapeutic effect: lifts and convolutes facial
plane to allow for lymph drainage and rehabilitates with 24-hour
How Does It Work?
For clinicians, it is well known that two critical components of recovery are
increasing blood flow and range of motion. Unlike other modalities that do just
the opposite, KT Tape provides the same support and stability as other
modalities, but without restricting blood flow or limiting range of motion. KT
Tape is applied over and around muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other soft or
fibrous tissue to provide lightweight and comfortable support, to prevent
injury, and to speed recovery.
KT Tape applications deliver these benefits by providing proprioception that
signals muscles for facilitation or inhibition, mechanically supporting joints
such as the knee or the ankle, approximating connective tissues to relieve
stress, or activating the one cell layer-thick lymph system to move fluid.
Utilizing these techniques allows inflamed or stressed tissues to have a chance
Additionally, KT Tape provides surface stimulation that increases circulation
and widens the neural margin to increase range of motion. The main difference
between application methods is the technique used in stretching the tape - how
much stretch you apply, and where you put the stretch in the tape or on StepWave
Adhesive pattern the skin significantly impacts the desired taping effect.

The development of KT Tape was a highly collaborative effort that included
healthcare professionals, a Medical Advisory Board, elite and everyday athletes,
and our product design engineers.
