Ask a class of anatomy students what the human body’s largest organ is and you may get answers like, “the liver”, “the intestines”, “the lungs”.
The answer is actually the skin and at 6-10% of total body weight it wins by a country mile compared to the liver at a mere 2.5%.
So while the jury is still out (or in this case researchers) about the precise efficacy for using kinesiology tape on skin for changes in movement, there can be no denying that animals (including humans), react to tape in their skin/fur.
