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

Over time, the aspects of modern life can be as hard on the body as the challenges in sport. From climbing the corporate ladder, to sitting at a desk all day, to chasing success - all while just finding time for the gym, every man needs and deserves the advanced benefits available to elite athletes to improve their daily performance.
Human performance and daily well-being begin with the core. Every man can benefit from enhanced:
Core Alignment: When the skeleton is correctly aligned, the bones support the weight of the body with minimal stress. This ensures that muscles hold very little excessive tension and they can then efficiently initiate and sustain movement. Proper core alignment also facilitates oxygen flow for enhanced energy.
Core Stability: Core stability 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 maintenance of upright posture, back pain minimization and injury prevention.
Temperature-Control: Thermoregulation is part of a homeostatic mechanism that keeps the body at optimum operating temperature. In humans this optimum temperature is 36.8 °C (98.2 °F). Assistance in maintaining this temperature can help to optimise energy efficiency.
