SpiderTech Gentle has been developed especially for individuals with sensitive or fragile skin, including infants and seniors. Its patented new "Stratagel" adhesive is latex-free, hypoallergenic and applied to soft, breathable cotton material.

SpiderTech's Upper Back/Postural Spider is a precut kinesiology tape for the muscles below the neck and between the shoulder blades. It relieves pain, inflammation and spasms in the muscles used to retract the shoulders and promote good posture. When these muscles are weak, fatigued or imbalanced, they contribute to a "round shouldered" posture. Strain or overuse of these muscles can lead to painful spasms and "hot spots" between the shoulder blades. This precut upper back tape can contribute to improved upper back strength and more upright posture in individuals with weakness or poor muscle tone in this area. The Upper Back Spider also works well in combination with the Shoulder Spider for certain types of shoulder pain or injuries.

What Makes SpiderTech Gentle Different?

SpiderTech Gentle for Sensitive Skin

Standard kinesiology tape adhesive is applied in a wave or plow pattern, creating alternating areas of adhesive and no adhesive. Each adhesive segment grips firmly to the surface of the skin, creating a pressure differential between the segments. While most people find this type of adhesive very comfortable, individuals with sensitive skin may experience irritation as the ridges of adhesive exert their pull on the skin. Individuals with thin, fragile skin may also experience loss of cells from the skin’s surface when the tape is removed, contributing to skin breakdown or abrasions.

The new Stratagel™ adhesive in all SpiderTech Gentle products is completely different. It incorporates a soft, gel-like, adhesive that completely covers the back of the tape. When applied to the skin, it lays smoothly over the entire skin surface. Because the surface is solid, the tape is still able to maintain its grip, but there are no ridges to pull and irritate skin and hair follicles. SpiderTech Gentle also removes easily with little or no irritation or damage to skin cells during removal.
