Abstract Augmented low-dye (ALD) tape increases medial longitudinal arch height, reduces calcaneal eversion and tibial internal rotation, alters plantar pressure distribution, and reduces leg muscle activity. This study evaluated continual wear of ALD tape and its initial effect on foot posture and mobility, three-dimensional motion, and muscle recruitment patterns of the lower limb in 28 individuals. Participants were then randomly allocated for an intervention period to either a group that was exposed to ALD tape continually or a group that was not exposed. Following the intervention period, all participants attended a second test session, which reevaluated the initial physiological effects of tape. Analysis of differences in exposure status revealed minimal changes in the initial physiological effects of ALD tape, and those differences were likely due to natural variation. The initial physiological effects of ALD tape appear to be consistent, even after continual use over approximately 11 days.
