KT Tape is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons to provide a lightweight, external support that helps you remain active while recovering from injuries. KT Tape creates neuromuscular feedback that relaxes or facilitates stronger firing of muscles and tendons. This feedback creates support elements without the bulk and restriction commonly associated with wraps and heavy bracing. KT Tape gives athletes confidence to perform their best.
“We are very grateful. The judges were phenomenal. They provided us with feedback in both the semi-final and final rounds, which was unparalleled in any other business plan competition we have competed in.” —Michelle Quinn, KT Tape, 2009 NVC Winner
