USEFUL TIPS FOR APPLICATION:
Synthetic vs Cotton
Not each physical therapy tape is the same. With the variety of kinesiology tape on the market, how do you pick just one? First, you must decide between synthetic or cotton.
Common kinetic tape is made from cotton. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a few days of wear. Cotton breaks down and loses its elasticity in under 3 days, especially if you’re sweating. Mighty-X kinselogy tape is designed to be more breathable than cotton tape and under normal conditions, you can expect up to a week of use.
Level of Comfort
It is true that cotton is softer than some synthetic fibers. BUT, it is bulkier and loses its elasticity. Synthetic sport tape for pain reduction is lightweight, hypoallergenic, and latex-free. Our sports tape kinesiology dressing not only feels better and lasts longer, but it also retains its compression. Mighty-X will Hold it Tight!
Quick Dry Time
Cotton is an absorbent material. It naturally attracts sweat and moisture, which can aggravate the skin. This can lead to changing your dressing too often. Our Mighty-X kinesiology tape waterproof qualities wick away moisture for quick drying. Wear it in the pool or for a quick shower.
Cotton can be more flexible when combined with other elastic, synthetic fibers, but it loses its shape and compression within 3 days. Our Mighty-X knee tape provides extra elasticity. This makes it longer-lasting and provides plenty of stretch to adapt to a wider range of motion. Our high-quality, microfiber k tape roll is suitable for most body parts.
