Purpose

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of elastic and non-elastic taping on induced quadriceps fatigue by knee extension exercise.

Subjects and Methods

Thirty healthy females were randomly assigned to an elastic tape group (ET, n=10), a non-elastic tape group (NET, n=10), or a no tape group (NT, n=10). Taping groups attached taping on quadriceps femoris. Three groups are conducted knee extension exercise for 10 times and 3 sets during 10 minutes. Knee extension peak torque measured before and after knee extension exercise. One-way analysis of variance was used to assess the statistical significance of knee extension peak torque.

Results

No significant difference in changes in maximum muscle strength per unit weight from before to after the muscle fatigue exercise was found in the ET, NET, or NT groups (12.1 4.2, 11.7 7.1, and 6.7 3.4 N/kg, respectively).

Conclusion

Taping facilitated muscle performance, but it also increased susceptibility to fatigue resulting from greater muscle activation.
