Ares Kinesio Tape - Black
Ares Kinesiology Tape is designed to be the same thickness and elasticity of the skin. The thickness of Ares Kinesiology Tape is approximately the same as the epidermis (outer layer) of the skin. This similarity of property to the skin allows for comfortable continuous wear. The acrylic adhesive is applied in a wave like pattern to mimic the qualities of fingerprints which assists in the lifting of the skin and allows for zones in which moisture can escape.
Ares Kinesio Tape is a premium elastic therapeutic strapping tape, which may aid in the rehabilitation of inflammation, stiffness, bruising and pain arising from sports injuries, arthritis and general muscle, fascia and tendon conditions, including shin splints.
