Kinesio Taping and edema reduction, proprioception, muscle activation and strength of the lower extremity

Kinesio taping is a new form of taping which can be stretched up to 140 % of its original length. Unlike traditional white taping, kinesio tape is air permeable, water resistant and can be worn for many days. There is a need, however, within the context of rehabilitation, to determine if Kinesio taping reduces swelling and improves proprioception, muscle activation and strength.
