This webinar will describe the traditional approaches to taping and the evidence surrounding their strengths and limitations.

It will present a novel approach that aims to overcome these limitations with emerging research supporting this. Dynamic Taping is a biomechanical approach to taping that employs a specifically developed product that allows it to provide very strong resistance and recoil to modify load, movement and function while still permitting full range of motion.

The webinar will outline the fundamental principles of taping mechanically and how to integrate into your current clinical reasoning approach. A flow chart for technique development will be described, which ensures that the intervention is appropriate, based on sound evidence and effective.

Precautions, contraindications and safe application procedures will be explained and a range of techniques pertaining to the upper limb will be demonstrated, illustrating the fundamental principles and allowing clinicians to immediately integrate the approach into their current clinical practice.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify indications and contraindications to utilizing biomechanical taping as an intervention
  2. Recognize fundamental understanding of biomechanics, joint orientation and structure, force vectors and anatomy to develop mechanically sound taping techniques
  3. Identify a scientific basis for utilizing biomechanical taping for evidence-based clinical practice in conjunction with current knowledge of orthopaedics, neuroscience and biomechanics to create a complimentary treatment strategy to maximize opportunities for successful outcomes
  4. Differentiate the various benefits of biomechanical taping as they pertain to movement control, force contribution, length-tension relationship, tendon compliance, augmenting force closure and soft tissue offload
  5. Identify when biomechanical taping is indicated and who will benefit
  6. Recognize the significant difference in physical properties and methodology between biomechanical taping, kinesiology taping and rigid sports taping, and identify ways in which these can be used in combination to optimize treatments

Attendees earn 2 continuing education hours/0.2 CEUs for this webinar.
