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

The importance of good posture on health
"The garments definitely help with postural support"
Kevin Lidlow, Phyiotherapist
A powerful element of physical change that often goes overlooked is good posture. Humans were built to stand up straight - however, with our modern lives spent hunched over a computer, sitting in a car, or general inactivity, our bodies end up in an unhealthy, slumped position which can directly affect how we wllok and feel.
Good posture is key to feeling your best every day, both physically and psychologically. One of the best benefits about improving posture is that the results are immediates. With many of the other lifestyle elements, such as diet or exercise, there is a lag between the time when the exercise is performed or diet is embarked upon, and the results. However, with posture you can realize the benefits right away.
Good posture can deliver:
- Optimal organ and muscle function for maximum energy and endurance.
- Imrproved biomechanics for the best possible muscle performance.
- Pain and fatigue minimisation in the neck, shoulders, and upper back.
- Greater concentration and mental focus.
- A flatter and stronger stomach.
- A more confident and youthful appearance.
