KT was developed in Japan in the 70s by a man named Kenzo Kase. The tape, which is attached to the skin, is thinner and more elastic than conventional tape. It can be stretched to 120–140% of its original length, producing a lesser mechanical restraint and less restriction of mobility than conventional tape.

It can be applied in conditions such as low back pain, tennis/golfers elbow, neck pain, patella femoral pain syndrome, muscle strains, plantar fasciitis and many more.
