Hard Taping (, Bane Hōtai (Hādo Tēpingu)?, lit. "Spring Bandage") is a type of special ultrasonic wave elastic taping. The taping can be used directly on the human body to enhance and reinforce the joints and muscles to increase its mobility and strength. When used this way the user can gain a dramatic speed increase while still allowing for the subtle and minute adjustments characteristic of a living being. However as it is not meant to be used like this it puts a heavy strain on the body of the one using it.
