Kinesio Tex Classic or Kinesio Tex Gold FP
Kinesio Tape offers single rolls in two different formats. Kinesio Tex Classic is the original KinesioTape, developed over 30 years ago in Japan by Dr. Kenzo Kase. Classic uses the original wave pattern that revolutionized therapeutic taping. Its smaller roll size (13') and lower price make it an ideal tape for those new to Kinesio Taping and for general consumer use. It is also slightly thicker and heavier, giving it a slight edge in providing support for athletic applications.
Kinesio Tex Gold FP has advanced features, including a 'fingerprint' adhesive pattern for deeper penetration into the dermis. The adhesive is actually deep-set into the fabric instead of just lying on the surface, which allows it to stick better with less adhesive contacting the skin.. This provides better breathability and makes the tape lighter and thinner. FP single rolls are 1m (3') longer than Classic rolls and are recommended for health care professionals. Both types are available in beige, black, blue, pink and now white. Each single roll of KinesioTape comes in a handy dispenser box that allows you to cut just the amount you need.
