Your most frequently asked questions
TRUETAPE is a kinesiology tape that has been optimised for easy self-application. Kinesiotapes are used very widely in medical practice and physiotherapy for general musculoskeletal complaints, for example muscle bruises, strains, tension or sore muscles.*
What is special about us is that we want to simplify the self-application of the tape for our customers and, in addition to precut strips, we also offer over 50 free video and photo instructions for taping. All instructions have been developed by doctors and physiotherapists and can be safely applied at home in just a few minutes.*
*The statements about the optimal areas of application of TRUETAPE are based on many years of experience of our experts and renowned therapists from professional sports. The effect of kinesiological tapes has not yet been clearly clinically proven and is therefore still controversial, despite being widely used in the German healthcare system.
With TRUETAPE® you have the choice between 5 kinesiologie tapes, which differ in width, configuration and material.
TRUETAPE® and TRUETAPE® Basic are available precut with 20 x 25cm strips per roll and uncut as a 5m roll. Both versions have a width of 5cm. TRUETAPE® Basic also offers the Basic Big Uncut Edition, a 10cm wide tape on a 5m roll.
If you want to tear off the strips directly from the roll or tap directly on the go and without scissors, you should opt for the Precut strips. The handling of Precut strips is great. If you want to customise and cut your tape anyway, it's best to take one of the TRUETAPE® Uncut versions.
If you don't want to compromise on performance, go for one of the two high-performance TRUETAPE® versions made of highly elastic synthetic silk. For the everyday taper and occasional runner, our TRUETAPE® Basic Tape made of cotton is the ideal choice. For taping large muscle groups, we recommend the Basic Big Uncut.
All our rigid tapes are made of breathable cotton with a skin-friendly thermoplastic adhesive for extra strong hold. You can choose between two widths and tear off your tape individually to the desired length by hand.
The inelastic sports tape with a width of 3.8 cm is the all-rounder and the ideal choice for stabilising and protecting the wrist, elbow, knee and ankle.
The rigid finger tape with a width of 1.5 cm is perfect for stabilising finger joints, metacarpals, as support in case of capsule and ligament injuries and for protecting the skin, e.g. when climbing or doing strength sports.
