The Kinesio Taping® technique and Kinesio Tex tape was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in Japan more than 25 yrs ago. In 1973, Dr Kase’s objective was to create a therapeutic tape and taping technique which could support joints and muscles, without restricting range of motion. He also hoped to formulate a taping technique which could have benefits for the lymphatic system. Following two years of research into muscle taping, tape elasticity, adhesiveness and breathability Dr Kase developed Kinesio Tex® tape and the Kinesio Taping method.
Kinesio Taping first saw worldwide exposure during the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Since then, Kinesio has become a popular form of muscle taping used by many Health Professionals across the world.
