Yes, they are different tapes and sources entirely. So really to be totally accurate, they are both kinesiology tapes, not kensio tapes.  Thanks for restating that so it is clear to readers. 

 Dr. Kase took the more formal medical route of distributing his tape to medical type providers and sources which is appropriate as they seem to promote having specially trained individuals place the tape on patients. So Kinesio Tex Tape is their trademark name. 

As often happens, KT, another distributor took the oppportunity to reach the market through sports stores. This has happened with other products.

Whether one tape is better or not, I can't say.  One blog post I read indicated that he thought the KT tape did not stick as well to his skin so clearly there are differences.
