K-Active Systems GmbH

History

The basics of the contemporary education system originated in the company Kinesio Deutschland GmbH. After the establishment of the brand ‘K-Active’ the sector ‘further education’ has been outsourced to an own company, the K-Active Systems GmbH.
To master the worldwide increasing course requests, new instructors have been introduced besides the already present Senior instructors, who have been trained by Japanese teachers. Selection criterions for the instructors have been an outstanding medical knowledge in different ranges, but also the individual qualification and the ability to work in a team, inter alia.
An intensive apprenticeship of the aspirant in taping, but also in other medical methods, followed. Thus, many of the instructors have been trained, for example, in ‘Anatomy Trains’ of Thomas Myers, in ‘Fascial Release’ or the ‘Fasica distorsion model according to Typaldos’.


Dr. Robert Schleip & K-Active

Besides very good contacts, like Dr. Robert Schleip and his team for fascia research at the University Ulm or the French hand surgeon and researcher Dr. Guimberteau, the cooperation with universities, professional schools or organizations like the ‘Fascia Research Society’ contributes to the further development of the method as well.
A professor from Poland, medical doctors, therapists, alternative practitioners, sports scientists and further people, who operate in the pharmacy, represent the group of almost 50 instructors, junior-instructors and aspirants. Due to the regular exchange and the semi-annual instructor meetings it is ensured that all instructors are at the same high scientific stage.

 

Vision

In future, the K-Active Systems GmbH wants to integrate the holistic method of K-Active Taping into further medical professional fields to offer even more athletes and patients the possibility to stay or become more happy and healthy. The contact to universities, research establishments or associations should be extended as well to make a contribution to the underpinning of scientific backgrounds of this method by studies and further expositions.
