SpiderTech tape is a non-medicated cotton kinesiology tape that you apply to your body wherever it hurts
Each Spider is made of one continuous piece of Kinesiology tape so that it integrates with the body in a super-functional manner. The tape has a very specific elasticity built into the weave pattern of the cotton fabric, which mimics the elasticity and thickness of human skin, allowing it to integrate, support and stabilize without adversely affecting healthy ranges of motion.
Durable and Breathable
SpiderTech is water-resistant and breathable, and can be worn for many days. SpiderTech products are designed to be worn during strenuous exercise. The non-latex adhesive holds when you need it to and does not leave residue when removed. The material is made of high-grade 100% cotton with a 100% poly-acrylic adhesive. There is no latex in the product.
What are the Spiders made of?
All SpiderTech products are made from the industry trusted Kinesiology tape manufacturer from Japan. With over 30 years of proven clinical results, it is simply the best tape you can get.

Product Reviews for SpiderTech Kinesiology Tape (Calf and Arch)
What is the difference between SpiderTech™ and the other forms of Kinesiology Tape products and therapies?
SpiderTech™ is the first and only company to provide the innovation of a convenient,
standardized and easy to use pre-cut and ready to apply format.
All SpiderTech™ Applications and Tape use the industry trusted and proven material from
the original kinesiology taping manufacturer from Japan, Nitto Denko.
SpiderTech™ provides the most updated and evidence lead educational system,
establishing SpiderTech™ as the leader in Kinesiology Taping science and application.
How many different SpiderTech applications are there?
There are currently 16 different SpiderTech pre-cut applications, designed for the areas of
the body most commonly addressed during therapy. Note that with these 16 applications
there are approximately 50+ different methods of application of the products. To learn
how to apply each pre-cut more effectively and efficiently, in addition to learning about
the creative ways to use the applications, it is encouraged that you enroll in the handson training courses.
Do the applications come in different sizes?
At present there is only one size for each of the SpiderTech™ Applications, which will
fit approximately 80% of the adult population. Since the therapeutic benefit is via
neurological mechanisms, exact sizing per se is not necessary.
How do SpiderTech Applications compare to the rolls in terms of cost?
When the amount of material used to reproduce a pre-cut application from a standard
roll is considered along with factoring in the amount of time saved without having
to cut the tape to perform a particular application, the two versions of application
are comparable price wise. There are additional factors to take into account when
comparing the value of the pre-cuts to the standard rolls. The pre-cut applications stay
on longer due to the professionally machined cutting of the applications which prevent
the common fraying effect of cutting with scissors and therefore fewer applications are
needed over the course of therapy.
Is there any difference in the four colors?
There are no known differences in physical properties (stretch, thickness, etc.) between
the different colors of SpiderTech Applications and Tape. At present, the decision as to
what color is selected is based on the therapist/clinician and/or patient preference.
