The asiamed synthetic SETA tape originates from the synergy developed between the German manufacturer asiamed and Prof. Bellia Rosario method. This kind of product is particularly suitable in biomechanical field since it allows, thanks to its structural characteristics, a dynamic functional and/or articular stabilization graded and variably combined.
Its constitutive nature of rayon and its stable adhesion given by hypoallergenic glue, allow a"multiplanar" overlap and stabilization so distributed and progressive which could not be achieved with the cotton or nylon tape because it could "exfoliate".This kind of versatility makes the asiamed synthetic SETA tape particularly suitable in sport traumatology field as well as in general physiotherapy. The cotton tape remains fundamental in neuromuscolar tape applications with the modulation mode of muscular tone and joint (articular)action. The nylon tape, for the specific peculiarity of the bidirectional elasticity, is suitable for the emo-lymphatic drainage applications and for tissue decompression. The asiamed SETA tape by Prof. Bellia Rosario is the tape that was missing for making complete the modern vision of elastic bandage: draining, joints and muscles stabilizing and biomechanical.
Asiamed synthetic SETA tape by Prof. Bellia Rosario features
E.C. Deformability after the application: the reduced deformability allows to have a dual effect in applications in single layers, there are kinetic-functional dynamic support effects and in the multi-layered applications can be reached the support effects of mechanical-articular stabilisation with a gradually progressive impact on muscles, tendons and joints.
Elasticity overlapping of Seta tape: test performed on a lenght of cm. 20
Nr. strips of 20 cm
Technique - “Powerful taping Prof. Bellia Rosario System” (PTKS)
This new application method allows to vary the application tension of the tape. The distribution in more layers allows to support the joint of interest in differentiated and multi-planar way.
Preparation steps for Powerful tape (application example : Shoulder) :
1. Cut 3 strips of synthetic SETA tape by asiamed & Prof. Bellia Rosario
2. Overlap 1 of two 10 cm strips
3. Overlap 2 of the 20 cm strip on the overlap 1
4. Shoulder preparation
5. PTKS application (“Powerful taping Prof. Bellia Rosario System”)
The tissues are damaged because of the stresses which they are subjected
The mechanical stresses exceeding the functional capabilities of the anatomic structures can cause an inflammatory condition that, if protracted trough time, can lead to tissue damages proportional to the effects of suffered "loads". (Ryan Kendrick)
The tenocytes, in the tendon structures, control their proliferation, cell differentiation and the collegane genesis by the codification and secretion of proteins with specific action like transforming growth-factor beta - TGF - β , and the insuline-like growth factor – IGF; accordingly from them depends the growth of the tendon fibers and the related functional load capacity. (Christopher Kaeding). This last one can be easily supported and modified, especially in athletic context, by the use of the tape that can improve sport performances and recovery after traumas. Most of the dysfunctions that we find are caused by ""functional overload": the technique “Powerful taping Prof. Bellia Rosario System” accomplished with the tape “synthetic SETA tape by Prof. Bellia Rosario” is used to dissipate a part of the mechanical forces the structures are subjected during the movement.
The application of the tape is able to affect advantageously the joint biomechanics without impacting the final performance of the movement. This kind of feature is particularly useful in athletic field.
Planning steps of the bandage according to the" bandaging the movement" Prof. Bellia Rosario method realizing the technique “PTKS”
The PTK allows to reduce, with its elastic properties of dynamic guide and containment, the pathogenetic cargo stresses of the joint arthrokinematics and allows to act effectively on the propriocetive neuromuscolar system with effects of pain control and on various steps of acceleration and deceleration of the movement. The tape also shows, in the modalities PTKS, an elasticity that can be regularly distributed (rehabilitation elasticity), following the lines of force that give origin to a functional overload (over-use) (Ryan Kendrick)
The expressed methodological concepts refer to the innovative techniques within the Biomechanical Taping System® - Italy, introduced by prof. Bellia Rosario after many years of study, work experience and university didactics in Italy and abroad.
“In sport applications is recommended to make bandage at least one hour before the performance and, if necessary, to improve the tape sealing, it is recommended to use a “spray pre-tape”.
Applications summary scheme:
The techniques follow the vectors of the joint angular forces and muscles.
The individual directions of the movement will be grade with the elasticity of the powerful tape, according to the objectives to reach.
Very used in sport, in recovery period and in competitive return.
Analytical muscles applications
These applications support the muscle along the force lines in the activation phase and eccentric contraction.
The action elastic recoil reduces the stress of the involved structures.
This technique is indicated in the post rehabilitative phase of maintenance and in the relapse prevention.
Analytical joints applications
These techniques are used in joint muscles affected by dysfunction.
The elasticity of the tape helps the recovery of the cinematic limb balance.
Technique indicated in the neuromuscular reprograming of the joint after the trauma.
Aanalytical tendons and ligaments applications
Allow the reduction of tendons and ligaments stresses, respecting the force lines in the phases of muscle activation and eccentric contraction.
The action elastic recoil reduces the stress of the ligament and tendons involved structures.
This technique is indicated in all the phases of the rehabilitation mainenance program and in the relapse prevention.
