Elastic Kinesiology Tape

Leukotape K is an elastic kinesiology tape which has been used successfully for many years to relieve pain, treat swelling and discomfort and improve function for patients in daily practice, in the hospital setting and sporting communities. Strength, coordination and proprioception can be improved by taping with Leukotape K.

Leukotape K is constructed from a highly elastic cotton substrate coated with a wavelike pattern of adhesive which works with the skin's natural elasticity. The tape is applied using specific techniques, whereby tape is applied over and around muscles to give support, without affecting circulation or range of motion. In this way Leukotape K promotes the body's own healing process whilst allowing complete freedom of movement.

Taping with Leukotape K can achieve pain reduction, regulation of tissue tone, improvement of innervation, improved lymph drainage, improved blood circulation, passive support (e.g. ligaments) and mechanical correction.

  • Skin: Greater regeneration for small skin defects (e.g. small lacerated wounds or abrasions) with suitable pre-treatment
  • Connective tissue/ fascia: Changes in tone, restrictions
  • Joints: Ligament injuries, instability, hypermobility, arthritis, various painful conditions, swelling
  • Muscles: Muscle injuries (strains, torn fibres, atrophy, changes in tone)
  • Lymphatic system: Lymphatic drainage disorders
  • Nerve tissue: Nerve irritation syndromes
  • Blood vessels: Impairment of blood flow
  • Fascia: Dysfunctions
