RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape.
First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, the
kinesiology tape is used today by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
While the use of kinesiology is often associated with athletes such as Michelle Wie, Adrian Peterson and Jason Khalipa, the reality is that the RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sport injuries.
Why the RockTape is different?
Unlike other kinesiology tapes made for rehabilitation, the RockTape was created in the heat of competition. We knew first hand that medical tape would fail under race conditions so we developed a lab in the Santa Cruz mountains where we could test our product until it meets our standards.
The RockTape may cost a little more, but when it’s all on the line, it’s nice to know you’ve got the best product in the business. the RockTape is a kinesiology tape evolved and enhanced. We did this to meet the demands of athletes but the net effect is simply the best kinesiology tape around. So whether the RockTape is being used on international athletes, kids or arthritic octogenarians they all notice and benefit from the improvements we have made.
Stretching is good. Our research shows that by making our tape with 180% elasticity, we allow the athlete fuller and better range of motion. Our competitors only offer 130-150% stretch.
Why RockTape has become an Into the World Sponsor?
