Kinesio Taping Workshop





After seeing patients at Sports Solutions in the morning, Gino did a Kinesio Taping awareness course at Wesley Methodist Church this afternoon.

Please contact us if your company/ organization/ sports club want to do this workshop. The workshop is free, the participants only need to buy the tape.

More On Imitation Kinesio Tapes

As I said in the previous post, a few of the participants from the course brought along their copycat (or imitation tapes http://www.weloverunning.blogspot.com/2012/04/imitation-kinesio-tapes.html) during the course.

So we put them to the test. The material, texture, elasticity. the wave and the weave all differ somewhat with some brands more obvious than others of course.

So what's the verdict? Well, according the the participant in the photos below who was taped with both the original Kinesio Tex tapes and the imitation tapes, the original Kinesio Tex tapes felt better, decreased pain etc.

Hey, I only did the taping (so as to be consistent, as in a proper research), the participant and the patient's (which means you) views will be much more important.

So please insist whoever is treating you with Kinesio tapes use the original for best results if they need to use Kinesio tapes.

Here are some of the pictures.

Imitation Kinesio Tapes

The present batch of students at the Kinesio Taping course in Kuala Lumpur was the first time we actually compared "copycat" (or imitation tapes) to the real slim shady (or the original Kinesio Tex tapes).

There was some discussion about the imitation tapes yesterday and during today's session, 3 of the students actually brought imitation tapes along.

Here are some of the imitation tapes.




And the verdict? Which tape is the fairest of them all? Or rather, which is the best?

Well, stay tuned for the results.
