|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||20 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Crossover Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||This study was conceived as a randomized placebo controlled prospective trial. With the aim of blocking effects of morphological specifities of participants, this study was designed on a four stage application on the same participants. This stages were (1) control testing with No Tape(NT) (2) placebo testing with Sham Tape(ST) application (3) Kinesology Tape(KT) application (4) Biomechanical Tape (BT) application. With the aim of blocking bias effects, randomization was designed with the computerized system using four way algorithm which led to NT, ST, KT and BT applications for each participant in mixed order but all applications have equal time in order.|

No Intervention: Control
Tests were applied with any taping.
Sham Comparator: Sham Taping
In ST stage; medical purpose, hypoallergenic OctaCare® Rigid Transparent Plaster was applied as a rigid tape. This tape is also used under rigid tapes for protecting the skin. In this study investigators didn't prefer extra rigid tape on the plaster because that was very light and less sensitive material to our knowledge so it suited our aim of placebo control.
Other: Rigid Tape
Experimental: Kinesiology Taping
In KT stage; the original Kinesio Tex® Tape Classic was applied as a kinesiology tape. In this study, investigators applied the tape with muscle activation technique and paper of tension (it was declared %10) according to Kenzo Kase's Kinesio Taping concept. It was implemented on both bileral Rectus Femoris and Calf muscles with same technique.
Other: Kinesiology Tape
Tape can be elongate only one direction
Experimental: Biomechanical Taping
In BT stage; Dynamic Tape® was applied as a biomechanical tape. In this study, investigators applied the tape with offload technique and paper of tension according to Ryan Kendrick's Biomechanical Taping concept. It was implemented on both bileral Rectus Femoris and Calf muscles with same technique.
Other: Biomechanical Tape
Tape can be elongate only two direction
- Change From Vertical Jump With Each Taping Application [ Time Frame: baseline, and immediate effect in a 15 minutes ]A fotoelectrical sensor base "Micro Gate Opto Jump Next®, software version 1.10, BFS Vertical Jump protocol with three jumps" was used for quantitative analysis of Counter Movement Vertical Jump (CMVJ). Minimum, maximum and average values of jumping height for all jumps (10) were recorded as canti-meter (cm).
- Change From Muscle Strength With Each Taping Application [ Time Frame: baseline, and immediate effect in a 15 minutes ]A hand held electronic dynamometer "MicroFet® 2" was used to evaluate isometric bilateral knee extension and ankle dorsal flexion strength.11 Measurements were repeated three times and maximum value of strength was recorded as Kilogram-Force (Kg-F).
- Change From Active Range Of Motion With Each Taping Application [ Time Frame: baseline, and immediate effect in a 15 minutes ]A wide angle webcam "logitech® c920 full hd pro web cam" that was integrated with opto jump software was used for assessment of active range of motion in front of jumping on image based assessment tool of opto jump software. Acromion, Trochantor major of femur, lateral epicondyle of femur, Lateral Condyle of Tibia and medial malleolus of tibia were marked for the indicator before the jumps. Videos, recorded at the same time with jump and synchronous with jumping values, were used for resolving knee and hip flexion degrees before jump with maximum height and they were assessed with indicators on computer surface on optojump software. Values recorded as degrees (º).
