to the sites of Kinematic Taping®, the world wide leading provider of seminars in functional elastic taping at academic level.
In the eighties, the Australian manipulative physiotherapist Jenny McConnell introduced the non-elastic taping in the manipulative Therapy. McConnell´s tape applications meet the current standards of assessment and treatment principles of physical therapy and are evidence-based.
Also in the eighties, the Japanese chiropractor and kinesiologist Kenzo Kase developed his taping with elastic adhesive bandages for the use on the skin. His tape mimics the properties of the skin without using an underwrap for skin protection. This type of taping was known as kinesiological or Kinesio Taping®.
International Kinematic Taping® Academy (IKTA)
Since 2006 the use of elastic tapes is in analogy with western principles of sports physiotherapy, manual therapy and orthopedics. In 2009 John Langendoen, Ehsan Sazegar and Timo Timpe founded the International Kinematic Taping® Academy. The IKTA developed the Kinematic Taping® Concept, which is currently taught internationally at an academic level.
All teachers of IKTA are clinicians with an academic background: all of your questions will be answered in our seminars!
