WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO K TAPE YOUR KNEE

K TAPING FOR YOUR KNEE

    1

  • Measure a strip of K TAPE from the mid-quad to just below the knee.

  • Cut the tape into a Y STRIP (you could also use 2 x I STRIP’s).

  • If you’re unsure of how to cut a Y STRIP, see our ‘K Taping Cuts’ video.

  • Lay the base of the Y STRIP at mid quad.

  • Bend the knee, and lay the tails of the Y STRIP around the patella with 25% stretch.

    2

  • Cut a short I STRIP and tear the backing paper to remove the central section.

  • Lay the tape down underneath the patella, aiming upwards with 50-75% tension through the mid part of tape.

  • Bend the knee into full flexion once again, and then lay down the tails with no tension.

  • This will prevent the tape from recoiling back on itself when the knee is flexed.

  • Wait 30 mins before starting any form of exercise. This gives the K TAPE sufficent time to stick.
