Equi-Tape – Elastic Kinesiology Athletic Training Tape Created for Horses BGordon
Improving Equine Performance
Equi-Tape® is based on its ability to interact with the skin, associated neurosensory and mechanoreceptors.
Equi-Tape® is the first kinesiology tape designed specifically for the equine. It is an elastic cotton 2-way stretch tape technology containing advanced adhesive properties for ease of application, removal and placement longevity.
Developed by Dr. Beverly Gordon in the early part of 2005, Dr. Gordon has since vastly improved the use of Equi-Tape®.
Additional further development of the Equi-Taping® Methodology, Dr. Gordon has refined taping methods for conditions affecting the equine athlete for use in both training and conditioning as well as in rehabilitation and clinical recovery.
What can you gain from using Equi-Tape? There are two distinct areas of gain that are likely from regular and consistent use of Equi-Tape:
In training Equi-Tape produces added comfort for your horse, lessening the risk of injury and allowing for faster post-workout recovery benefits.
In rehabilitation Equi-Tape helps with conditions that affect muscles, ligaments, joints, tendons and tissue that exhibit any of the following; swelling, inflammation, soreness to touch, stiffness, or lack of complete or expected motion
The lifting decompression principle behind Equi-Taping® involves an increase in activity under the skin, improved blood flow, and impacted pain receptors with the end objective to shorten standard recovery time.
