Course Description: Strapit/Gripit Essentials Taping Level 1 is an 8 hour course covering the basic skills necessary to carry out suitable taping for both injury prevention and injury management. In a lab based format the participants will undergo a hand-on instruction about the use of the 3 key taping modalities – athletic taping, kinesiology taping and activetaping methods. All specific to targeting pathologies. The participants will rationalize appropriate taping selection to address various injuries or potential injuries and understand the contra-indications to taping.

Course Objectives:

Level One:

  • State at least one contraindication for each type of tape: kinesiology, athletic, and active
