CROSSTAPE® Pain Relief Patches
The Kumbrink-developed CROSSTAPE® Patch is made of dual mixed fibres and is attached to a specially coated backing paper. When pulled off the backing paper, the patch is electrostatically charged ready for specific Crosspuncture® Therapy. The CROSSTAPE® patch has a surplus of negative electrical charge.
When applied to the skin the CROSSTAPE® slowly releases the electrical charge, stimulating the acupuncture/trigger point or area of pain. CROSSTAPE® patches are water-resistant, can be worn for several days without any restriction. They do not contain any active ingredients.
Targeted Crosspuncture® Therapy
Kumbrink developed the Crosspuncture® Therapy to be used for a diverse range of applications including trigger points, acupuncture points, tense muscles, sore joints, etc.

How does the human body function?
Very small electrical impulses control a large number of functions and information processing in the human body. Whether muscular, fascial or neural functions or acupuncture points, the body frequently uses measurable electrical circuits and resistance. Skin, the largest human organ, is equipped with multiple receptors and is complexly connected to the inner organs and the brain. This connectivity allows the skin to transmit pain and sensory information. Modern medicine is taking advantage of the skin connections and its functions, whether for diagnostics (ECG) or treatment (electro stimulation devices - TENs) purposes. The same applies to acupuncture. The exact location of the acupuncture point is found via it’s electrical charge.
CROSSTAPE® patches target the Crosspuncture® Therapy
Injuries, diseases, scars and tense muscles – all of these affect the balance of the body's electrical system and result in dysfunction and pain being transmitted to the brain.
The fundamental component of the Crosspuncture® Therapy is CROSSTAPE®. The water-resistant CROSSTAPE® is free of medication and active ingredients. The CROSSTAPE® patches are applied directly over points of pain, muscular trigger points and acupuncture points. Depending on the usage (such as showering, swimming, sport or work), they can adhere to the skin for a period up to several days.
Many sizes. Many applications.
The Kumbrink-developed CROSSTAPE® patch are available in sizes S, M, L and XL. The most useful and most used is the Size M. Larger areas of pain can be treated with multiple patches of various sizes. When doing so, it is important to remember that CROSSTAPE® patches are not elastic and are unable to follow the skin when stretched. It is therefore preferable to use several size M CROSSTAPE® patches, on areas where the skin is subject to strong stretching. The L and XL size CROSSTAPE® patches are suitable for parts of the body less subject to stretch, such as the outer surfaces of the thigh and shoulder or the shin, etc.
Environment and Sustainability
Our environmental concerns for waste and conservation have been carefully managed through the continuing efforts of biviax®, which has received the environmental certificate from Germany’s Green Dot Dual System (Duales System Grüner Punkt) for K-Tape® and CROSSTAPE®. The prevention of production and packaging waste, and thus the conservation of resources and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, has continued to be a strategic objective at biviax®.
No plastics are used in the outer packaging or the backing and inner tubes for the rolls of K-Tape®. Only paper and cardboard are used, these items cost more to produce, but are proving easier to recycle and thus is friendlier to our environment.
