Popis This work aimed at presenting the idea of inventor Dr. Kenzo Kase that kinesio tape application with proximal base leads to muscle contraction facilitation and application with distal base leads to muscle contraction inhibition. Twenty male volleyball players with the dominant shoulder girdle muscle imbalance between the ages of 25 and 30 participated in this study. There were compared two techniques which were placed on biceps brachii muscle in shoulder and elbow joint extension. Isokinetic tests flexion and extension of elbow joint with HUMAC NORM were used to quantify muscle strength before kinesio taping application (first measurement), 24 hours (second measurement) and 72 hours (third measurements after it. Third and first measurement difference was evaluated as an increase for each parameter (peak torque, average power per best repetition, angle of peak torque)during eccentric contraction. The null hypothesis was not rejected for peak torque and average power per best repetition of both kinesio tape application ways but for angle of peak torque was rejected for both application methods. Kinesio tape application with both ways has statistically significant effect on angle of peak torque. On the other hand kinesio tape application do not influence peak torque or average power per best repetition. There is no statistically significant difference of both kinesio tape application methods.
