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.Kevin Lidlow Physiotherapist, GB Olympic Team

"It is a great tool for those of you who want more support in the core area"
Core stability keeps the spine and body stable so as to stay balanced when you move. A solid core can help everyone, from the man who sits at a desk all day to professional athletes.
A stable core in core wear allows you to maintain a solid foundation and transfers energy from the center of the body out to the limbs. Ergonomic support in the trunk area is essential for:
- The strong, healthy feeling that comes from good posture
- Confidence from strength and good balance
- Greater strength and power for in activities
- Injury prevention
- Decrease or prevention of lower back pain
