While working on the professional tennis tour, Ryan Kendrick was unhappy with the fact that tape was unable to absorb force. He recognized if he had a product that could decelerate the body while still allowing 100% range of motion, it would allow injury parts to heal faster and more effectively. From this idea he created the Biomechanical Tape known as Dynamic Tape.

This product provide simple cues on how to move (that is how much, isolated, controlled, fast, slow, etc) without unnecessary internalizing of movement or excessive verbal and tactile cues. Simply brilliant.
