A Message From Kinesio

Dear Friends.

It has been a very difficult past few months. The atrocities perpetrated against mankind are hard to comprehend. Kinesio has an international presence that is headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Even though we are far from some of the attacks, they hit home like they were happening in our own backyard.

We wanted to reach out to our Kinesio Family around the globe and offer our sincere condolences for any losses you or your community may have suffered. It is important, however, that we do not lose sight of what Kinesio is all about and that is “Taping the World For Health”.

Sincerely,

Kinesio Group

Kinesio-Tape-20131223_012934

Dr. Hassan R. Jafri, PT, DPT, CKTP, COMPT, is president of Invigorate Rehab in Missouri USA. Every year he joins Imamia Medics International in providing medical care at the Arba’een celebration, a huge holiday held in Karbala, Iraq. We spoke with him in 2014.

“Kinesio Taping Method was very well appreciated and received in Iraq,” he reports. “Patients loved the strategy for pain management and injury prevention.”

“I had the pleasure to introduce the Kinesio Taping Method to a few medical school students at Kufa University & Karbala University.”

“They were amazed from the Kinesio Taping Method by experiencing the results first hand.”

Dr. Jafri will return in December for the next Arba’een observance. He intends to continue his outreach in Iraq and may be able to provide workshops for some of the medical students.

2017 Kinesio Taping International Research Symposium: Call for Abstracts

Kinesio-Tape_Blue-Book

We are now accepting abstracts for Poster, Workshop, and Platform presentations to the next Kinesio Taping Association International (KTAI) Research Symposium. This will be held in Hawaii in 2017. The symposium has been a Kinesio tradition for more than 30 years, as speakers and attendees gather from all points of the globe to share the latest advances in Kinesio Taping research, practice, and education.

Suitable topics will include full scale investigations into specific Kinesio Taping techniques, settings and patient populations as well as significant case reports. Previous subjects have included “Measurement of Kinesio Taping Effects Using fMRI;” comparison between myofascial Kinesio Taping and Dry Needling; workshops relating to sports, lymphatic and pediatric taping techniques; “Influence of Kinesio Taping on Post-Operative Pain and Wound Management in Cardiac Surgery;” and case reports on varied patient types, including Equine Kinesio Taping.

The most recent Symposium was held in Tokyo, and drew attendees and presenters from all over the world. “Professionally,” says Jeffrey Ramsay of Eaglesports, who distribute Kinesio products in Russia, “it is a huge opportunity for learning. Between the keynote experts and other terrific presenters, the research posters and workshops, the concentration of knowledge and experience at the Symposium in the field of Kinesio Taping is second to none.”

Dalong Luo, of Kinesio South East Asia distributor Progress Healthcare, adds “Kinesio Taping has continually set the gold standard for elastic taping across medical professions and usability across patient profiles. Without the cooperation and commitment of a global network of experienced medical professionals who lent their expertise, time, sweat and tears to support Dr. Kenzo Kase and the Kinesio Taping Association this would not have been accomplished.”
