Functional Bracing Garmets for Veterans

– Posted in: Breaking News, Feature Right, HDCN1, Health and Fitness, High Desert Community News, JR1, Senior News Feature, Uncategorized, Veteran Veritas

I am 60 days in now as a test case for IntelliSkin. , a garment that was originally designed for athletes and now discovered to have a practical value for veterans with back injuries and osteoporosis.

This patented technology works as an intelligent second skin. It cues your body’s natural ability to support itself by the most efficient manner by improving posture and alignment.

As one who fell out of a helicopter in Vietnam and have been compromised with pain and immobility for 40 years, I am a bit stunned at how this garmet does not fully remedy these symptoms but does indeed afford a surprising freedom of mobility that I have not known. More importantly defined as a comfort of mobility.

I am instructed that the nerve endings on our skin send specific cues to the brain, resulting in tight muscles and resultant chronic pain. This garment seems to have a magical way of short circuiting these opposing under used muscles that may well be the source of the pain.  Not being skilled in the physiology of physical therapy, the most I can say is that it works. My mobility and freedom of lateral movement has been enhanced. That is all I know for now. I will report more in the next 60 days.

The Veterans Administration would be well served to expand the research with this product.

Not sure why one responder stated this piece had poor readability.
