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.

Back pain

"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.
