Follow these easy steps to prepare for a
successful SpidertechTM taping experience1:
Along with being dry, your skin needs to be clear of hair, creams and oils. Clipping or shaving the intended area of application may be necessary.
Do not apply the tape over broken or damaged skin including sun burns. If itching or irritation occurs, remove the tape
immediately. No increased discomfort should be experienced while wearing the tape.
Do not touch the adhesive side of the tape while applying.
This may decrease the adhesive strength, and may lead to early peeling.
When removing the tape from the backing, peel back the paper backing in small amounts at a time and lightly attach the tape
to the skin. Apply the base section with no stretch in the tape or muscles.
Once the tape is applied for each section, gently rub over the top of the tape to smooth out any creases and to activate the glue. It is very important to remember to rub the tape from the start to the end of each section.
The tape is waterproof and breathable and can be worn during showers and baths. Apply the tape approximately 1 hour before
engaging in exercise or bathing. Do not rub the tape while bathing. Pat the tape with a towel after bathing or swimming.
SpidertechTM can be worn for up to 5 days.
The tape should be removed after 5 days of application. The tape can be removed by stretching the skin under the tape and then gently rolling the tape or by pressing your index finger down and sliding it along just in front of where you are removing the tape. Do not remove the tape while wet. Remove the tape in the direction of the hair growth which is typically away from the centre of the body and moving down the arms and legs.

SpiderTechTM works in more ways than one to help you with recovery,
performance and prevention. SpiderTechTM tape is clinically researched
and developed with advanced wave technology to activate Merkel cells
(nerve endings) on the skin that signal your nervous system to block the
discomfort. SpiderTechTM works with your body’s natural movements by
providing a gentle tug on the skin and lower fascial layers which allows
agitation to occur and mechanical lifting of the superficial tissues.1
