The effect of Kinesio Taping on maximal grip force and key pinch force


The taped muscles included the following: flexor digitorum superfitialis, flexor digitorum profundus, extensors of the wrist, adductor policis, flexor policis brevis, and first interosseus dorsalis. KinesioTex Gold tape was placed on the skin from origin of these muscles to insertion using a 15–25% tension of the tape (‘‘paper off’’ tension). Additionally, the functional correction technique was applied in order to stimulate finger flexion (the tape was placed on fully actively extended fingers from the metacarpophalangeal joint towards finger tips; 100% tension of the tape was used; and no tension at both ends of tape)
