Posture & Compression Research

Mesh PostureCue panels correctly align upper body muscles, permitting reduced stress and muscle fatigue, so users can feel stronger for longer.
Kinesiology Taping® Method
The Kinesiology Taping® Method is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy adminis- tered within the clinical setting. IntelliSkin takes the idea of Kinesiology Taping a step further, using highly-engineered fabrics with different stretch characteristics instead of tape. IntelliSkin products have been clinically proven to improve both posture and alignment.

compression apparel that improves posture and alignment. Our patented PostureCue™ technology works with your body to create posture awareness. So you can look better, feel better, and perform better immediately.
HUMAN TECHNOLOGY = NATURAL INTELLIGENCE + SOCIAL INGENUITY
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
A 2004 study by the American Medical Athletic Association concluded that athletes who want to optimize their performance should focus on their posture. It doesn’t stop there. In addition to improving performance, the study also concluded that improved posture can alleviate aches and pains, as well as prevent common sports injuries. Renowned orthopedic Dr. James Andrews of the Andrews Institute conducted a study with baseball pitchers that showed the IntelliSkin shirt improved the performance of baseball pitchers while helping to protect them from injury. As a result, most MLB teams now buy IntelliSkin for their players.
Good function will usually follow good form. IntelliSkin creates that posture awareness that will allow you to improve your form and function.
Born from Kinesiology Taping
IntelliSkin inventor, Dr. Tim Brown, grew to understand his future creation while working as the medical director on the ASP surf and AVP volleyball tours during the 1980s. As an early innovator in functional taping, he developed a hybrid Kinesiology technique known as SPRT (Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping). SPRT techniques were designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to injured muscles and joints without restricting range of motion. Used on everyone from Olympians to NFL players, the technique quickly became a staple in the athletic world as it allowed injured athletes to compete despite their injuries. Since the early 1990’s, Dr. Brown has taught SPRT taping to well over a thousand doctors (Orthopedists,
Family and Sports Medicine Specialists, Physiatrists, Chiropractors), Physical Therapists, and Athletic Trainers.
SMART COMPRESSION BY INTELLISKIN
Dr. Brown’s instinctive techniques got athletes asking for taping remedies so often, that he needed something that could do the job when he wasn’t there. Many late nights of trial and error using remnants of old wetsuits, he devised a wearable technology that mimicked his taping technique. One product he developed, the S3 (Spine and Scapula Stabilizer), is a therapeutic synthetic shirt with adjustable straps that is prescribed by medical professionals to improve posture, reduce pain and speed up injury recovery time. A company was formed to sell the S3, with the investment backing of a group of prominent orthopedic surgeons.
The mission: to design a comfortable, Smart Compression shirt that would instantly improve posture and spinal alignment for everyone. Born was the IntelliSkin Shirt with our patented PostureCue™ technology. IntelliSkin apparel is medically proven to improve both posture and alignment. Dr. Brown’s ultimate goal is to help everybody to look better, feel better and perform better. We continue to pursue that goal every day.
