multi-layered system with Elastomer Core & Sports Compression Fabric
Each Shape has an elastomer core surrounded by two layers of sports compression fabric. This multi-layered system provides RapidForce® Shapes with 15x the strength of kinesiology tape. The surrounding sports compression fabric wicks away moisture to keep you cool and dry.
RapidForce® Shapes provide mechanical lift to take pressure off the soft tissue and share the body’s workload. When initially stretched and applied to the body, the Shapes place several pounds of force on muscles, tendons, and ligaments to provide support and pain relief. As the thick multi-layered system stretches during physical activity it generates more force to provide your body with additional reinforcement.
Sports-grade adhesive for a better stick
RapidForce® Shapes use a sports-grade adhesive that can endure nearly anything thrown at it. From sweat to water to sand and dirt, RapidForce® Shapes will withstand up to five days of workouts, showers, and abuse.
In addition, the layers of sport compression fabric allow moisture to pass through the Shapes and away from the adhesive so they maintain their extreme stickiness. That means there is no need for daily application and a longer life span than kinesiology tape.
PRE-CUT LINER for Easy Application
Pre-cut liners make application easy. Simply peel off the perforated liner to reveal the ultra strong sports grade adhesive. This eliminates the complexity and hassle involved with cutting and applying kinesiology tape.
Ultra-Thick for Maximum Pain Relief
The center of the ultra-thick shape adheres to the skin directly on top of your pain point. The supporting “arms” stretch to anchor the shape to the body. The more you stretch the arms the more reinforcement the Shape provides. This creates more space for blood, oxygen and nutrients which encourages pain relief and healing.
proven Results on the field and in the lab
Developed and tested by a team of physical therapists, athletic trainers, and other medical professionals, RapidForce® Shapes are proven on the field and in the lab.
Test subjects reported a significant reduction in pain after wearing RapidForce Shapes for 24 hours. In fact, 93% of athletes in the study and 90% of applications saw a statistically significant reduction in pain on the Numeric Pain Scale. Further, diagnostic ultrasounds revealed decreased swelling, less inflammation, and improved blood flow, all of which are paramount to proper healing after an injury.
