Kinesio Taping for Lower Limbs Strength of Soccer Players

Case Study Full Name: The Use of Kinesthetic Taping to Increase Strength Output in the Lower Limbs and Enhance Reaction Times in Soccer Players By: Ian Goh Principal - Consultant and Occupational Therapist   Purpose: The purpose of this study was to prove that kinetic taping along synergistic muscles will enhance force produced and endurance in the lower limbs of soccer players. This will result in enhanced performance during the game with reaction times, speed and strength, as well as reduce the risk of injuries. Participants of the study were girls from the Western Australia State team.   Results: The preliminary data analyzed has yielded very positive results in the benefits RockTape has for soccer players. Raw data collected indicate that most of the girls tested showed a significant increase in vertical jump height with RockTape on. Most girls demonstrated a 1 to 2 inch vertical jump increase compared to their readings without tape on. Another encouraging sign observed is that while there was a steady decline in jump height during the session without tape on, during session 2, the girls manage to maintain vertical jump height longer or decline slightly, then increase again. Analysis of the initial raw data would suggest that the use of Rocktape in soccer players can enhance force output and endurance in the lower limbs of soccer player during game time scenarios. This would enhance performance and prevent injuries during the game. This data would point towards the benefits of using RockTape during soccer matches and also advocate for further testing to be conducted with larger samples and different levels of players.

RockTape Precut Edema Strips

$36.00 $40.00

DISCONTINUED BY ROCKTAPE

Edema strips are used to relieve swelling and bruising. Often called fan cuts, the distinctive "fingers" are spread out along the lymphatic channels to encourage drainage of fluid and blood that accumulates in an area after injury or surgery.

RockTape Precut Edema Strips are 10" long by 4" wide and have a 2" base with 5 individual fingers. Each box contains 20 individual edema applications that can be worn for 5-7 days. Pre-cut edema strips are machine cut with rounded corners, reducing the fraying and curling that can occur when tape is cut by hand. Application is quick and simple. Start by folding and tearing the backing along the cut lines and where the anchor end meets the fingers. Remove the backing from the anchor end and apply according to package directions. Apply the fingers, one at a time, over the swollen or bruised area.
