CURAD® Launches Performance Series IRONMAN® Far Infrared Kinesiology Tape Designed for Training and Recovery

NORTHFIELD, Ill., June 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — CURAD®, a leading provider of world-class consumer medical products, announces the launch of its Performance Series IRONMAN Far Infrared Kinesiology Tape fortified with Thrive Far Infrared technology. The line is powered by Thrive Tape, creators of Thrive Far Infrared Kinesiology Tape designed to support muscles and joints with the benefit of targeted pain relief. This innovative collaboration ensures that every athlete has the opportunity to train – and recover – like a pro.

Kinesiology tape is a go-to item for elite athletes ranging from Olympians to those training for endurance sports events and everyone in-between. The addition of Thrive Far Infrared technology elevates the Performance Series IRONMAN Kinesiology Tape.

Thrive Far Infrared technology works by absorbing the body’s energy and redirecting that energy back as far infrared, a region in the infrared spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. The sensation of this technology may be experienced as a gentle radiant heat when applied to the human body. It also offers a unique two-in-one advantage by providing targeted pain management as well as pressure relief caused by muscle tension and strain.

Unlike other modes of recovery, this tape provides support and relief, allowing users to actually continue to train at their chosen levels of activity. It can be used in a multitude of ways to help manage foot, ankle, leg, back, neck, shoulder, chest, arm, and wrist issues.

In addition, the Performance Series IRONMAN Far Infrared Kinesiology Tape is made of flexible, elastic threads as well as water and sweat-resistant material and features a 100% acrylic adhesive for multi-day wear.

CURAD joined forces with one of the Thrive Tape founders and accredited fitness expert, Don Saladino, to ideate and execute on a product that aligned with the missions of both brands.

“As elite athletes have come to understand, the recovery process is just as important as the workout itself,” said Saladino. “The Thrive Tape team is really looking forward to bringing the training and recovery benefits of our Thrive Far Infrared technology and CURAD’s Performance Series to athletes of all levels.”

The Performance Series IRONMAN Far Infrared Kinesiology Tape is available in black and pink. The product joins CURAD’s current lineup of kinesiology tapes and can be found on Amazon. As the official medical supplier of IRONMAN, CURAD’s Performance Series IRONMAN Far Infrared Kinesiology Tape can also be purchased online at the IRONMAN store.
