Kinesio Taping for Children with Cerebral Palsy

Case Study Full Name: Children with Cerebral Palsy Improve Sitting with Kinesio Taping By: Özge Özkaya, PhD   Summary: For the study, researchers randomly divided the children into three groups and employed NDT to all of the children four times a week for four weeks. Children in the first group (control group) did not receive any other therapy, while children in the second group received KT, and children in the third group received NMES. The team then analyzed the sitting ability of the children using the gross motor function measure (GMFM) as well as their kyphosis levels. The authors found that sitting ability and kyphosis improved in all children. The improvement was more prominent in both the KT and NMES groups compared to the control group. The NMES group showed the best improvement. 1/2 Researchers concluded that KT or NMES application for four weeks in addition to NDT can effectively improve sitting ability and kyphosis in children with cerebral palsy, and that NMES is more effective than KT. According to the team, future studies should focus on the combination of KT and NMES with different rehabilitation modalities in different groups of children with cerebral palsy

CureTape Punch 2" X 16" Single Rolls

$13.50 $14.99

CureTape Punch comes in standard size 2 inch X 16.5 foot rolls. While it uses the same premium quality cotton and gentle but powerful adhesive as Classic CureTape, CureTape Punch has alternating rows of 2 and 3 holes punched into the tape, which gives it some qualities that are unique among kinesiology tapes.

The punches allow the tape to stretch along the height and the width, and allows the tape to apply pressure 3-dimensionally. This means that the tape provides increased stimulus and stretches skin and fascia due to the variations in pressure and stretch created by the openings, which has an increased effect on neurolymphatic and endorphine analgesic systems in the areas where it is applied. The openings also allow for greater ventilation of the skin, and allows the tape to dry more quickly after getting wet.

Vetkin Veterinary Tape 2.4" X 16' Uncut Roll

$16.99 $17.50

Unlike many other tapes who simply increase the amount of adhesive or package it differently, the creators of Vetkin worked cooperatively with veterinary institutes, olympic teams, ISELP, and the Equine and Canine Institutes to develop a tape specifically for veterinary applications. While it uses the same high quality cotton material base as CureTape, it undergoes a specialized drying process when combined with the adhesive to create a tape that has 35% stronger adhesion, but is easier to remove from the coat than traditional CureTape. It comes in a 2.4 inch (6cm) wide and 16.5 foot long roll which means you get 20% more tape per roll than a traditional 2 inch (5cm) wide roll for about 12 applications per roll.
