The garments definitely help with postural support as they encourage optimal horizontal extension and retraction of the Scapulae, (upper central key points) giving a Scapulothoracic neutral posture. The value in this for function is to lessen kyphotic stress in the primary curvature which physiologically eases counter-stress in the secondary curvature of the segments. The wearer should therefore be aware of less effort and mechanical stress particularly with prolonged standing or sitting and may, indeed, notice improved ergonomics with upper limb activity.

Helix Mapping™ - Body Response Technology

Developed in conjunction with physiotherapists, ergonomic consultants and athletic garment engineers, EQUMEN™ HELIX-MAPPING™ is a unique body-mapping system that builds physio taping techniques into every garment to reinforce and support the body's natural structure from the core. Crisscrossing the upper and lower back, compression on the shirt gently pulls the shoulders back to support an upright posture.

The HELIX-MAPPING™ system is built in using seamless manufacturing technology. This allows for a more comfortable, better fitting garment that will adjust to your unique body shape without rubbing or chafing.
