Elastic colourful stripes, that are easy to stick on and are comfortable to wear exist only few years, but their development takes us much further into history. The knowledge of application is more than a thousand years old. Already in ancient Egypt and Greece the elastic and firm bandages were used not just for injury treatment, but also for fixation of the musculoskeletal system. At the beginning of 70s by then unknown doctor Kenzo Kase began to develop -in that time not elastic- sport tapes. So, the new material with new attributes was introduced. During several years of research and after numerous tests Dr. Kase developed his own method, kinesiologic taping, as well as his own elastic tape – Kinesio Tape (kinesio = movement). This is how the modern elastic taping was developed and later spread worldwide.
