What is Dynamic Tape?

The "Original" Biomechanical Tape

Dynamic Tape is not a kinesiology or athletic tape. It is a Biomechanical Tape, an entirely new category of sports and therapeutic taping. This innovative, 4-way stretching tape with strong elastic recoil, absorbs force to reduce the workload on the body. Our taping methodology aims to directly manage load, modify movement patterns, and assist function. Dynamic Tape does all this with a soft and breathable tape that is of such high quality and strength that professional athletes around the world trust our product everyday. From rehabilitation to the World Cup, Dynamic Tape is changing the way we look at sports and therapeutic taping.

What is Dynamic Tape?

Dynamic Tape is a revolution in taping. How so? Let’s start with a little about the tape itself.

  • Dynamic Tape is composed of a synthetic, stretch nylon & lycra cloth compared to that of Kinesiology tapes that are predominantly cotton.
  • Dynamic Tape is designed to stretch in all direction (4-way stretch) while Kinesiology tapes are designed to stretch longitudinally (2-way stretch)
  • Dynamic Tape has many times the resistance and recoil, likened to a bungee cord. Kinesiology tapes have a very gentle recoil, designed to lift the skin.
  • Dynamic Tape can stretch to over 200% of its resting length with no restrictive end point. Kinesiology tapes typically stretch 140% – 180% with a defined rigid end point where the tape will stretch no more. This prevents the tape from being applied with the body part in a shortened position while maintaining full range.
Dynamic Tape is designed to work mechanically, designed to alter movement patterns while absorbing load and re-injecting that energy back into movement, all without limiting range of motion. Kinesiology tapes are designed to work neurophysiologically, meaning they interface with the skin to alter pain perception, address lymphatic drainage, and encourage changes in neuromuscular function.
