The Effects of Kinesio Taping on Peripheral Blood Flow

Case Study Full Name: Changes in the Volume of the Peripheral Blood Flow by Using Kinesio Taping® By: Kenzo Kase, D.C., and Tatsuyuki Hashimoto, Ph.D.   Purpose: For the treatment of injuries, increasing the amount of blood flow is one of the mechanisms in the healing process. This is a clinical study based on 9 subjects using a Doppler machine to measure the volume changes of the peripheral blood flow before and after applying Kinesio Taping® Methods.     Conclusions: Based on the results, applying Kinesio Tape® was effective in changing the volume of the peripheral blood flow for subjects that had physical disorders. The result of this research suggests that Kinesio Taping® causes the alternation of the blood flow. By applying Kinesio Taping® techniques, an immediate effect is seen since the blood flow has been changed immediately (within 10 min.) after taping. Probably more importantly, the result that we were able to gather from this study was that, since the Doppler indicated no major changes in the healthy subjects blood flow after taping, we can say with some confidence that Kinesio Taping® has no major adverse effects

RockTape Precut Edema Strips

$36.00 $40.00


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.
