RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance. While the use of kinesiology is often associated with athletes such as Serena Williams, Kerri Walsh and Lance Armstrong, the reality is that RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.
ROCKTAPE’s Active-Recovery (AR) series of tapes are designed to enhance performance and recovery. Unlike regular compression garments and tapes, ROCKTAPE’s AR series can be used both to apply compression to promote recovery, or decompression to relieve pain and swelling.
Rocktape is engineered to meet the demands of endurance athletes like runners, swimmers and cyclists. The ROCKTAPE AR series features: – Stickier, hypoallergenic adhesive that won’t fall off during competition – 180% stretch, the same elasticity as skin, to promote full range of motion – 97% cotton, 3% Nylon 6/12, low moisture absorption – Tighter weave, which enables muscle to more easily snap back to neutral – Water resistant – Variety of designs and colors – Wearable for up to 5 days – Each Roll is 2″”x16.4′ (5cmx5m)
