Does your brand of kinesiology tape carry the above listed required information? How important is it to you that a product that is to be used with patients, is designed and produced under stringent quality guidelines?
‘Class 1 ‘ Medical Devices/Products
Why is it important to have products classed as medical or Class 1 products?
When using products on a patients skin or if the patient has a compromised immune function, it is important to know that only the safest materials are used. A therapist may ask “Will my product cause an adverse reaction, or even worse, an infection to my patient?” If there is a question regarding the product, can this particular product be traced? Has it been tested when applied to humans?
A highly recognized standard worldwide is the TÜV quality mark. Products are tested by TÜV Rheinland and undergo rigorous scrutiny to ensure they are suitable for medical use. Each product must pass some 25 points of criteria before receiving the TÜV quality mark.
