KT Tape: secret weapon of elite athletes – now available to everyone

Utah company launches first-ever kinesiology tape to come in pre-cut strips specifically designed for consumer use

Lumos Inc. introduces KT Tape, the first-ever kinesiology tape to come in pre-cut strips specifically designed for consumer use. Kinesiology tape is a high performance elastic athletic tape used by medical professionals for treating muscle and joint injuries. Kinesiology tape has never been available direct to consumers, and required special cutting and training to use it. Athletes no longer have to suffer through painful injuries, or sit out their favorite sports. KT Tape is fast and easy to apply and provides the same professional quality treatment on which Olympic champions rely.

By lifting the skin and relieving pressure on pain transmitters, KT Tape provides muscle-pain relief and support without restricting motion. KT Tape comes in convenient pre-cut strips and is available in a variety of colors. It provides 24-hour relief for up to five days per application and is water resistant, so it stays on in the pool & shower. KT Tape is launching world-wide this year in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, and South Africa. The product will be available to US consumers at Sports Authority, Eastbay, Dicks Sporting Goods, Big 5 Sporting Goods, as well as thousands of independent sporting goods retailers nation-wide.

Olympic gold-medalist Kerri Walsh has officially endorsed KT Tape:

“Kinesiology tape allows me to compete at my peak, even when I'm injured. I switched to KT Tape because it is hands-down the highest quality, most durable and comfortable kinesiology tape that I've ever found,” says Kerri Walsh, two-time Olympic gold medalist.” “I wouldn't play without it!”

Athletes from all sports use KT Tape. More and more people are discovering the difference KT Tape can make in their athletic performance. Injuries that usually sideline an athlete are no match for KT Tape. KT Tape provides relief for runner's knee, tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, sprains, and general back and shoulder pain, as well as most muscle soreness or pain. All of these injuries respond well to treatment with KT Tape, allowing people to remain active while injured.

Each package of KT Tape includes detailed, easy-to-follow instructions for common applications and injuries. KT Tape is latex-free, and non-medicated so there is no potential for interaction with other medications. Unlike oral pain medications, athletes using KT Tape receive pain relief without undesirable side effects such as nausea which can affect performance.
