The ASO ® (Ankle Stabilizing Orthosis) Ankle Brace’s remarkable support, comfort and durability has made it the sports medicine professional’s choice for effective treatment and prevention of most ankle sprains. The ASO offers better support than ankle taping and is comfortable, easy to put on, and reusable. The ASO Ankle Brace fits easily and comfortably into a normal athletic or street shoe and its non-stretch stabilizing straps simulate the basketweave technique of an athletic taping application, effectively locking the heel. Plus, the straps can be retightened at any time – without removing the shoe. The ASO Ankle Brace also fits either the left or right foot. This is the ankle brace that delivers exceptional performance for superior patient results.
High-quality tape is essential for the successful application of K-Taping therapy. The water-resistant and breathing properties of the K-Tape allow long wearability and a high level of comfort. K-Tape has very specific properties and maintains consistent quality over a period of several days and under stress. Critical to this requirement is the quality of the materials on the one hand, and the controlled, consistent processing on the other hand. The cotton fabric is woven with the warp and weft at right angles to each other and the incorporated elastic warp thread retains elasticity during the entire application period and not be subject to fatigue.
Dynamic Tape is a unique, strongly elastic tape developed by an Australian Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist which is used in the treatment of many sporting, musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.
Dynamic Tape is the original Biomechanical Tape & original Tattoo Tape featuring the beautiful tribal tattoo design created by Norfolk Island and Tahitian artist, Tihoti.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF DYNAMIC TAPE?
Dynamic Tape allows the wearer to move through full range of motion without limitation but with strong biomechanical assistance (as opposed to a primary neuro-physiological approach). Dynamic Tape can strongly assist or resist movement, facilitate or inhibit and offload tissue through full range of motion. This is only possible due to the highly elastic nature (no endpoint like kinesiotapes) and four-way stretch necessary when taping multi joint muscles or movements and performing complex, three-dimensional skills.
