CHATT TAPE
HYPOALLERGENIC
KINESIOLOGY TAPE

Chatt-Tape is a hypoallergenic adhesive tape made of a very high quality cotton. The ventilation in Chatt-Tape allows the skin to breathe, prevents moisture build-up, and helps to avoid rashes. The elasticity of the tape is designed to allow optimal fit on any part of the body without restriction in range of motion. A mild heat sensitive acrylic adhesive is used to prevent skin irritation and avoid unnecessary tension to the skin.

This non-medicated tape can be used on appropriate parts of the body to enhance the blood & lymphatic fluid circulation leading to better natural healing and recuperation of the soft tissue. It is also suggested that applying the tape on the skin in a specific way can alter recruitment and contraction of the muscle. 1
