                “Through our professional and personal experience, we know that good posture is           Tags

                founder of Opedix. “Using leading edge technology (bi-plane fluoroscopy) that allows      technology,

                arm bone) within the shoulder joint. That’s truly amazing, that you can change your
                anatomy simply by wearing this shirt.”

                “We’re achieving this through a combination of proprioception and skeletal support.
                Your body is being ‘cued’ by neuro-receptors in the skin firing messages to the brain
                telling it to pull your shoulders back,” Gustafson continued. “And since it’s
                comfortable, people will enjoy wearing it, and that’s half the battle.

                Benefits gained by wearing the Posture Shirt:
                • Improved posture
                • Increased strength in the shoulder
                • Increased stability of the shoulder joint
                • Increased lung capacity
                • Decreased neck, back, and shoulder pain
                • Decreased muscle tension in the neck and shoulder
