Based on the experience of the NMT Institute One Community Platform developer that for advancement in the field of Health and fitness / sports in Indonesia, there needs to be a communication, information update, scientific discussion and motivation in writing scientific articles that can be shared with fellow medical professionals in Indonesia and possibly the world.
NMT Institute One Community Platform is specific and closed community for professionals in the health and sports fields. The NMT Institute One Community Platform began this program by proposing collaboration with associations, associations, health professional associations and sports with legal entities.
NMT Institute One Community Platform also pays attention to other Health stakeholders such as hospitals, clinics, laboratories, universities, healthcare companies and Health insurance where officially the NMT Institute One Community Platform proposes collaboration to join the NMT Institute One Community Platform so that all contents of the NMT Institute One community Community Platform is useful and scientifically useful.
The NMT Institute has created a treatment concept of decompression taping called “NeuroMuscular Taping” widely known in medicine and rehabilitation.The NMTConcept is used in physical rehabilitation, in sports medicine, in nursing, in speech therapy and language pathologies, in all aspects of health care. It is a therapeutic ally in the prevention of and in the active treatment of many conditions requiring increased self-healing capacity.
The “NMT Know-How” and the “Intellectual Property – NMT“ began in 2000 and consolidated during 2003 together with the creation of both the NMT concept and the NMT Institute. The Institute plays a key role in the management of precise training and in the development of specific protocols for pathologies and conditions requiring treatment. Since its creation, the NMT Institute is a benchmark for specific innovative training programs and for its involvement in numerous volunteer initiatives in various parts of the world. Through correct training the NMT Know-How is passed on to health care professionals while in collaboration with tertiary education institutions the NMT intellectual property can be shared to all.
The most difficult problem with the discussion on “Taping” research is the definition of taping. There are 2 types of taping used in the therapeutic area. One is the use of a stretched tape, resulting in a bandage or compressive taping definition. For example KT, functional taping, medical taping and so forth use a specific compression or stretched application methodology that may also be called neuromuscular bandage. Using KT methodology tape is applied with paper-off, 25,50,100, or variable tension %. We can generally afirm this technique started in the 1980-90’s. Definition of bandage is compressive and contriction creating various types of local muscle and joint stimulation also under investigation and research. KT and these types of taping applications do not create skin wrinkling as the elastic tape is always applied with some degree of tension.
The other is NeuroMuscular Taping methodology, a non-stretched tape applied over the skin in an extended position resulting in a decompressive taping definition. NeuroMuscular taping refers to a specific decompressive taping application techniques which originated in the early 2000’s in Italy. This NMT taping system is characterized by resulting skin wrinkling, skin folds or skin undulations. Also this taping application creates various types of skin, muscle, joint, sensory, vascular and tactile stimulation under study over the last decade. Hence 2 types of taping application resulting in 2 different and opposing methodologies.
