August 21, 2013 — AlignMed has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Registration for its line of specialty garments. AlignMed products are in an elite category of garments approved by the FDA Registration process as a Class 1 Medical Device. The garments are worn on the upper body to support, correct, or prevent injuries or to align body structures for functional improvement.
The comfortable, form-fitting, non-restrictive Align garments feature patented Touch-Tension Neuroband technology designed to fire muscles and stimulate nerves to align the body’s joints with each stride of the leg or movement of the hip, back, shoulder, chest, and neck. The garments are also constructed with state-of-the-art materials that provide moisture wicking, anti-microbial, and biocompatible properties. This revolutionary concept has been vetted and tested by a panel of medical doctors and research clinics.
“We are thrilled to get the thumbs up,” said AlignMed Founder Bill Schultz. “We’ve worked hard to ensure that every product we put into the market truly does what we say it does, and we’re on a mission to help people move better and reduce pain through aligning the body. Our garments are proven to do just that.”
Primary applications include everyday wear for muscle balancing, joint unloading, injury prevention, and as a recovery tool for surgery or trauma to the upper and lower extremities. Computer users can wear the garments to fend off neck pain, back pain, and poor posture prompted by excessive sitting and repetitive movements.
Everyone who performs motions at work or at play can benefit from a garment that encourages better posture. Align users include amateur and professional athletes, sports team managers and trainers, clinicians in orthopedics and physical therapy, corporate wellness programs, and anyone with an active lifestyle.
“Studies show that regular activity and motion can have a significant impact on staying healthy as well as avoiding and recovering more quickly from strain or injury. Additionally, as we age, mobility and agility are rapidly reduced by poor posture,” Schultz continued. “The garments we’ve created are based on a scientifically-proven biomechanical approach that mimics the body’s kinetic energy to help shape alignment and balance automatically without having to concentrate or think about it. It’s a deceptively simple solution. And it works.”
