John Langendoen has been a physical therapist since 1976. The combination of elastic taping and the traditional approaches in sport and Manual Therapy led him to the development of the comprehensive method: “functional taping using elastic tape - Kinematic Taping® Concept”.

He has taught this method in over 25 countries and founded the International Kinematic Taping Academy (IKTA) for taping teachers. He is co-author of the book ‘Tape Yourself’ (©2016 TRIAS Verlag in Georg Thieme Verlag KG).

Karin Sertel has been a physical therapist since 1980 – specializing in hand therapy, manual therapy (Maitland® Concept) and craniosacral therapy for children and adults. The ability of patients to tape themselves has become very important in her work for hand rehabilitation.
