December 16, 2010 — Nitto Denko Corporation of Osaka, Japan, co-developers and manufacturers the world’s original kinesiology tape, announced they have launched a full range of SpiderTech Pre-Cut, Ready-to-Apply products within their home market, bringing SpiderTech’s innovations back the market that launched this method of therapy more than 20 years ago.
Nitto stated that as the major supplier of Kinesiology Tape products and solutions in Japan via their NITREAT product line, SpiderTech products and education offered a dramatically enhanced usability, delivering a viable and scientifically advanced therapy to healthcare professionals and athletes who see the traditional method of kinesiology tape use as difficult and inconsistent.
