Affecting body symmetry in this way brings pain relief for many postural, shoulder and spinal conditions thereby also reducing pain medication.

Despite being close contact, the gilet feels light and breathable and is easy to wear for long periods.

Ten years working with top medical professionals has delivered a wearable stylish looking bracing device that can relieve back pain, shoulder tension, release neck spasm and associated headaches, play a vital role in treating ACJ separation, frozen shoulder, and post-surgery shoulder and spinal recovery. In particular, Scapular Dyskinesis or winging shoulder blade(s) and some shoulder dislocations. 

Applying the gilet as part of a broad biomechanical approach with intensive physiotherapy or with personal trainer help can provide an effective solution for many otherwise difficult to treat and inoperable conditions.  

THE INVISIBLE MAGIC OF THIS GILET
Adopting a stylish close contact gilet design has enabled unique concealment and integration of components that combine to,

 Overcome any feeling of self-consciousness about wearing a posture-enhancing product

✔ Re-pattern the musculoskeletal structures for better shoulder, spinal and pelvic alignment, balance, strength

 Provide essential bio-feedback for an understanding of how good posture should feel and to promote conscious correction

 Achieve powerful postural correction without pinching, cutting-up at the underarms or creating dependency

 Engender a ‘core on’ posture, recruiting core muscles correctly and producing stronger, better form for longer

 Lift the diaphragm up to reduce strain on the lower back 

 Maintain shoulder blade position (scapulae), close to the chest wall, for better stronger shoulder function 

 Correct shoulder alignment without compromising the blood supply to the arms or placing pressure on brachial nerves

 Open the chest cavity for improved breathing capacity

 Allow freedom of movement and the arms to reach forward and upwards without sliding up

 Deliver a stylish look that accommodates both male and female body forms

 We have also added a removable reflective cross at the back and a light grey line at the front of each shoulder. Both serve to visually gauge evenness of the shoulders, straightness of the spine and overall body symmetry. This works with most video analysis apps

THE ULTIMATE GOAL

  • Prevent shoulder blades winging outwards and associated shoulder malfunction

  • Generate a deeper brain-body connection and stronger more efficient engagement 

  • Achieving body symmetry and balance without thinking about it

  • Training the brain to subconsciously override the natural tendency to adopt a fetal position when faced with perceived fear or danger, and instead to automatically and subconsciously choose a well-balanced posture

  • With better posture, comes confidence - many have reported feeling taller, happier and younger even! Surprising and Powerful Links Between Posture and Mood 

WHAT IS GOOD POSTURE 

MEDICAL FINDINGS

✔ The gilet is an effective treatment for Scapular Dyskinesisa debilitating and previously incurable condition affecting a considerable number of people who are often unaware of it.

 It is also proving a useful diagnostics tool i.e. for unexplained hip pain. In an example case, chronic pain was eliminated unmasking an un-diagnosed shoulder blade winging condition, Scapular Dyskinesis  

✔ Our studies indicate that by wearing the gilet for as little as two days consecutively, musculoskeletal alignment and muscle patterning can be significantly improved  

* Even after removing muscle memory and improved posture can be retained, although for how long depends on each individual.

 ✔ Within as little as 20 minutes of wearing tension in the shoulders, and neck can disappear. This may depend on the severity and can take up to two days 

 Found to relieve neck stiffness and associated headaches,  back and shoulder pain 

✔ May help prevent the onset of sciatica and is known to alleviate back and sciatic nerve pain

✔ Improvement in breathing has also been reported. COPD sufferers have found benefit and as a result, have been able to reduce steroid puffer use

✔ Speeds return to sport after surgery and following shoulder and back injury

✔ Can improve *muscle soreness recovery time after working out *delayed-onset muscle soreness [*DOMS] 

Trials are ongoing and results are optimistic for other complex shoulder conditions including some dislocations. Also of note is its use in rehab following spinal surgery and for spinal conditions i.e. scoliosis.

WHY IS GOOD POSTURE SO DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE?

Our shoulder blades dictate the position of our shoulders and shoulder blades have very few mechanoreceptors (the means by which the brain connects to them). This, therefore, means we don't know what our shoulders are doing.

Combine this with the brains' reluctance to accept us upright (The brain wants us safely down on all fours), generations growing taller, living longer, long hours spent hunched over mobiles and computers plus, tiredness then you begin to see why we ALL have postural issues.

Research by London surgeon and shoulder guru Mr Ian Bayley shows how important it is to identify wrong shoulder position and the consequences or ignoring it, read more about Scapular Dyskinesis (shoulder blades that wing outwards).
