What is RÉVVI sports tape?
Most sports tapes can be recognized by their white color and are not stretchable. They are used before, during or after sports and in physiotherapy. Sports tape provides protection and support for recovering muscles and joints. It works like this: by applying sports tape to the skin where the muscle is located, the range of motion of the muscle is limited so that it can recover optimally. The tape should be removed after every sporting moment. Nowadays, it is also often used kinesiotape
. This is the opposite of sports tape, as it is very elastic. Due to the stretchability of this elastic sports tape, the tape easily adapts to every natural movement. This means that you are not restricted in your movement during exercise.
how do you use sports tape?
Applying sports tape requires a lot of attention and precision. Both application and placement must be done carefully to achieve the optimal result. First of all, start by cleaning your skin, it must be grease-free and dry. If you have a lot of hair growth where the sports tape should be applied, we recommend trimming it or shaving it completely smooth. Sports tape adheres better to smooth, non-hairy skin. Then apply the sports tape to your skin and make sure that no air bubbles form under the tape. If you're using elastic tape, make sure you don't put too much stretch on the tape. Physiotherapists often specialize in applying sports tape, if you are in doubt not to do it yourself. There is also a lot of online information about applying (elastic) sports tape.
