SpiderTech pre-cut kinesiology tape is the only kinesiology tape that comes precut and ready-to-apply. Put simply it is the most user-friendly form of kinesiology taping.
Utilising the original kinesiology tape from Nitto Denko, SpiderTech combine traditional methods with innovative thinking. The end result is a kinesiology tape that is unrivaled in terms of quality, durability and comfort.
Each Spider is made of one continuous piece of Kinesiology tape so that it integrates with the body in a super-functional manner. The tape has a very specific elasticity built into the weave pattern of the cotton fabric, which mimics the elasticity and thickness of human skin, allowing it to integrate, support and stabilize without adversely affecting healthy ranges of motion.
Spiders are designed for specific body-parts: No need to design, no need to cut, and no anatomy and physiology knowledge necessary. Just follow the instructions on the package and this website! Some Pre-Cut Spiders can be used on multiple regions of the body, and the PowerStrip X’s, Y’s and I’s cover just about anything!
There are currently 16 different SpiderTech Spiders, designed for the areas of
the body most commonly addressed during therapy. Note that with these 16 Spiders
there are approximately 50+ different methods of application of the products. In addition to this SpiderTech PowerStrips are convenient strips of kinesiology tape cut to 20 cm lengths in; I, X & Y shapes.
At present there is only one size for each of the SpiderTech Spiders, which will fit approximately 80% of the adult population. Since the therapeutic benefit is via neurological mechanisms, exact sizing per se is not necessary.
When the amount of material used to reproduce a SpiderTech pre-cut application from a standard roll is considered along with factoring in the amount of time saved without having to cut the tape to perform a particular application, the two versions of application are comparable price wise.
There are additional factors to take into account when comparing the value of the pre-cuts to the standard rolls. The pre-cut applications stay on longer due to the professionally machined cutting of the applications which prevent the common fraying effect of cutting with scissors and therefore fewer applications are needed over the course of therapy.
