May 14, 2010 — SpiderTech recently announced a new breakthrough product for Kinesiology Tape Therapy — SpiderTech Gentle. Developed by Nitto Denko, the original manufacturers of Kinesiology Tape products, SpiderTech Gentle was created for patients with sensitive skin.
SpiderTech Gentle products are scientifically formulated to minimize skin irritation through the use of Nitto Denko’s new Stratagel adhesive, reducing redness and itching typical to patients with low collagen, fragile, or sensitive skin.
Stratagel combines a lower level of adhesive force with a pliability that allows the adhesive to conform to the micro-contours of human skin, generating a gentle adhesion that fixes the tape firmly, but reduces stress on the skin during wear and at removal.
SpiderTech Gentle is water resistant and designed to remain on the skin for up to 3 days or more. Excellent for use with patients that exhibit skin irritation with standard Kinesiology tape products, SpiderTech Gentle allows for continuous application on patients with chronic conditions.
