The SpiderTech Kinesiology Pre-Cut Small Fan Tape is a professionally engineered, dynamic therapeutic support for improved lymphatic flow. These strips are used to reduce swelling, edema, bruises and contusions. Also called fan cuts, these precut strips have several thin "tails" connected to a solid anchor end. The individual tails are positioned over an area of swelling or bruising with the anchor end in the vicinity of lymphatic system drainage ducts. The tape gently lifts the skin, allowing fluid to drain away from the swollen area through the lymphatic system. Engineered to mimic the thickness, weight, and elasticity of human skin, this tape feels comfortable and you won't even notice it's there.
