KT Tape has today confirmed the addition of three new items to its fast-growing line-up of kinesiology and sports medicine products. The new product roster includes the multi-functional KT RECOVERY+ Ice/Heat Massage Ball and two treatment products for athlete blister care – the KT PERFORMANCE+ Blister Prevention Tape and KT PERFORMANCE+ Blister Treatment Patch.
The new product offerings will be available online at KTTape.com in December and at retailers across the US starting early next year.
KT Tape’s expanding product portfolio offers a broad selection of pain relief, recovery and muscle support options for athletes. The three new products join the new KT Tape PRO Wide 4-inch wide strips introduced earlier this month, along with new KT Tape PRO USA tape featuring US Olympic alpine skiing champion Julia Mancuso.
Collectively, KT Tape aims to offer a comprehensive product range to support athletes at any stage – through training, competition and recovery.
The KT RECOVERY Ice/Heat Massage Ball seeks to redefine the traditional roller ball by combining the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy, hot therapy and cold therapy into a versatile 3-in-1 recovery product. The ball’s unique design includes two different easily interchangeable hot and cold inserts – one designed to retain heat longer, and one designed to retain cold longer.
Users can switch between the two as needed to address a range of muscle treatment and recovery needs. The Ice/Heat Massage Ball is small, compact and TSA-compliant, making it a recovery product for travel as well.
KT PERFORMANCE+ Blister Prevention Tape is positioned as the latest innovation in athlete blister prevention care. The synthetic, non-woven fabric strips are designed to help prevent abrasion injuries, such as blisters, chafing and hot spots during the rigours of athletic training and competition. Blister Prevention Tape has a strong adhesive to help it stay in place and conform easily to the skin, allowing full mobility while staying active.
The KT PERFORMANCE+ Blister Treatment Patch is designed specifically for athlete blister and minor wound care. Each patch is made of an advanced hydrocolloid gel that conforms to the skin and stays in place during athletic activity, ‘allowing athletes to focus on competition, not nagging and painful blisters’. The sterile, latex-free patches protect against water, dirt and germs while easing pain and helping to reduce scarring. The durable patches provide protection for multiple days and can help heal blisters and minor wounds faster than traditional dry bandages.
KT Tape is a lightweight, elastic sports and fitness tape designed for muscle, ligament and tendon pain relief and support for many sports-related injuries. Applied along soft tissue, KT Tape interacts naturally with the body’s neuromuscular systems to allow individuals to remain active while recovering from injuries. KT Tape is designed to withstand sweat, strain and can be worn in water or under body-hugging athletic apparel while providing long-lasting relief.
Currently, KT Tape products are sold in over 35,000 retail locations in the US and 40 countries worldwide. KT Tape’s broad distribution covers sporting goods, food, drug and mass retail channels, as well as clinicians, online retailers and the company’s own e-commerce site, KTTape.com. KT Tape also aims to empower consumers with a wealth of educational resources, including a library of online videos and on-site demonstrations at more than 150 athletic events each year.
