Thirty six subjects were screened for possible eligibility criteria and thirty successfully completed the study protocol, of which 15 were randomly assigned to the experimental group (KT: 5 men, 10 women) and 15 were assigned to the control group (Placebo tape: 10 men, 5 women).
According to our results, the SOT scores of both KT and control groups improved during follow-up. No differences between them were observed during the follow-up in the majority of balance measurements. The observed changes may be related to a subjective increase in confidence after the tape application.
