Truetape expert MD Lutz Graumann answers your questions.
Here you’ll find everything worth knowing about kinesiology taping, the TRUETAPE concept, and our products. Everything by Dr. Lutz Graumann explained in short videos.
What exactly is kinesiology tape?
Kinesiology tapes are lengthwise elastic tapes that stick onto the skin thanks to a medical acrylic adhesive. They are used to treat musculoskeletal problems and injuries.
The TRUETAPE concept
Our goal is for everyone to be able to tape themselves up with TRUETAPE. Taping at-home is made easy and safe thanks to the pre-cut strips and our extensive taping tutorials. That’s a promise!
The benefits of the Athlete Edition
Tape which feels like a second skin, with particularly elastic properties, which dries up faster and is even more durable, is also useful outside of professional sports. Our Athlete Edition offers all this – find out for yourself!
What do the different colors mean?
Kinesiology tapes come in many different colors. Here, we explain to you whether these colors have any particular significance, or if you can just pick the color you like.
