FMT Industrial Athlete

Discover the benefits of kinesiology taping in the workplace!

Led by industry-leading professionals in movement assessment and rehabilitation, FMT Industrial Athlete equips bodies to move more and better, with non-invasive, drug-free approach to rehabilitation and functional performance enhancement.

FMT Industrial Athlete introduces the concept of kinesiology taping for workplace soft tissue management and first aid care. The five-hour long course includes a review of the current literature supporting the theory of kinesiology taping for the purposes of musculoskeletal discomfort management, inflammation control and postural support. This evidence-informed kinesiology taping course will redefine your understanding of the effects of elastic therapeutic taping on discomfort mitigation, fluid control (acute/chronic inflammation) and proprioception (static/dynamic movement control via taping). It lays the groundwork for a practical framework of ‘taping movement, not muscles’ to replace an outdated model focused on directional taping to activate or inhibit muscles.
The FMT Industrial Athlete program is designed for small to large organizations that have internal or external medical providers on site. Our team is able to customize the program to suit the unique needs of your business by focusing on specific MSK risks, areas of the body or motions that are specialized to your worksite. Our certified medical educators will come onsite and train your staff to implement kinesiology taping during MSK management and first aid, a program that has been shown to reduce worker’s comp costs and improve employee morale. We create proprietary programs that can meet your business needs, employee community, MSK risks and more.

This course is intended for work safety engineers, ergonomists, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, and injury prevention specialists with all levels of experience with taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided. CEU’s are provided by various national and state accreditation boards. 

Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement screening/assessment, performance, and rehabilitation.


Educational Objectives of FMT Industrial Athlete:

>At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to

  • Define and discuss the physiological effects of kinesiology taping
  • Communicate common functional taping techniques as they apply to ‘early intervention of non-reportable’ pain management and work-related posture control.
  • Introduce, define, and show common taping applications for work related soft tissue complaints.
  • Demonstrate, via application, functional taping techniques that are specifically designed to influence discomfort*, edema, and posture.
  • Demonstrate and discuss how the skin/fascial system functions, and how kinesiology tape interfaces with the respective mechanical, chemical, and neurosensory sub-systems.
  • Understand and differentiate fluid-dynamics taping applications for acute edema and chronic fluid dysfunction.
  • Discover and experiment with various tape application techniques for common musculoskeletal injury conditions (spine and extremities conditions in work-related environments)
  • Demonstrate and apply posture taping applications for correction of common chronic postural deficits of the upper and lower spine regions.
