My patients like the form-fitting nature of the EQUMEN™ shirts and the back/core support they offer, reminding them from a kinesthetic perspective to avoid slouching. Since posture is very cerebral in nature and requires physical corrections, the garment has the potential to be a great motor learning tool for patients, athletes and the general population alike. The technology is very unique, supporting the areas of the body that typically break down from a posture dimension and through repetitive overuse. When worn, the shirt's HELIX MAPPING™ permits somatic feedback directly to promote spinal and soft tissue alignment through virtually subliminal posture corrections.Michael Zazzali, DSc.PT, OCS Certified Orthopaedic Specialist, Physical Therapy Associates of New York

"My back pain has all but disappeared"
Nigel Barnes, London
According to the American Chiropractic Association, as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in their lives. For men, back pain can be the result of poor ergonomics, athletic injuries, or labour intensive activities. The onset of pain is most common between the ages of 30 and 50 years old.
For those who suffer from back pain, it can truly be counterproductive to daily well-being. In fact, it is one of the most common reasons for missed work and the second most common reason for visiting the doctor.
The EQUMEN™ Core Precision™ Undershirt can be a highly effective tool in your efforts to prevent back pain:
- Improves posture: Maintaining proper posture is one of the most important actions in helping with back pain. By gently pulling the shoulders back with built-in physiotherapy taping, the Core Precision™ Undershirt helps to correct posture, thereby relieving pressure on the lower back.
- Supports the core: Targeted compression wraps around the core, supporting the lower back and keeping the muscles warm. This can be helpful during prolonged periods of sitting or standing as well as activities where the core is engaged.
- Style-conscious fit: Second skin design and temperature control fabric enables you to incorporate the Core Precision™ Undershirt underneath any clothing, from work wear to active wear, so you can enjoy the ergonomic benefits without wearing a cumbersome or awkward object.
