What is EBA® Evidence Based Apparel?
The simple crystalline concept of what EBA does better than anyone in the world is posture. Posture is us. Posture brings alignment, balance, and increased stamina. EBA has established patented, groundbreaking technologies for posture correction apparel that begin a new paradigm in wellness and injury prevention. Over six years of clinical experience and scientific research performed at multiple academic facilities, have shown that variable elastic bands (Neurobands), placed in a specific anatomic location, interact with muscles and the neurobiology to stimulate muscle activity. The research and clinical findings (evidence) validate a measurable therapeutic effect. This puts EBA in a category all on its own. EBA truly is evidence based and has been issued United States Patent Number 7,871,388 title POSTURE IMPROVEMENT DEVICE AND METHOD OF USE.
What is EBA® Technology?
EBA® posture improvement devices are built with state of the art materials that feature moisture wicking, anti-microbial, and biocompatible properties that meet the demands of advanced physical activity. EBA technology behind the solutions is based on the basic science principles of balance, form and function. EBA designs form fitting garments with variable tension bands called "Neurobands". Neurobands stimulate muscles and nerves to align the body's joints with each stride of the leg or movement of the hip, back, shoulder, chest and neck; in response the body uses less energy and reduced fatigue means less vulnerability to injury. EBA is anatomic apparel that backed with clinical findings from prestigious medical research institutions. EBA garments offer an alternative to individuals with concerns related to muscular, neurological, and postural strain, or to those who simply seek wellness solutions. The company is committed to understanding the interactions of multiple biological responses in the human body and to integrate them into apparel that is comfortable and attractive.
The EBA posture shirts and S3-4 Spine Stabilization devices deliver posture improvement technology through a simple elegant platform championed by the medical professional, the physical therapist, the strength coach and mothers everywhere. Good posture helps prevent injuries, alleviates back and shoulder pain, maintains flexibility, and boosts athletic performance. The Alignmed EBA Posture Shirt uses biomechanical and proprioceptive technology supported by clinical research to immediately deliver touch tension forces triggering a physiological response improving posture. Improved posture increases alignment, balance and stamina. The key to all EBA gear is to listen to what your body is telling you both while you wear the product and after you take it off.
What are Neurobands™?
Neurobands™ are defined as dense, closely packed bundles of fibers positioned in a wavy pattern parallel to the direction of pull. Neurobands can have a variety of flexible and elastomeric properties. The elastomeric properties create duel-directional tension forces until the wavy pattern of fibers straighten out by the pulling force. The Neuroband design imitates collagen fibers contained within muscles, tendons, ligaments and the fascia connective tissues. Additionally, Neurobands are strategically placed within the EBA garments to have a snug fit and to have start and stop anchor points, that are relevant to ligaments and tendons that join one bone to another. In this way Neurobands help to transmit balanced movements from muscle to the bones and joints they are attached to or surrounded by.
How does EBA® Technology Fit into Your Life?
Over time, the aspects of modern life and aging can be as hard on the body as the challenges in sport. We are not designed for long periods of static, sedentary work. The body thrives on movement and variety. Mother Nature did not design our bodies for long periods of repetitive motions such as sitting or keyboard use. Work-related musculoskeletal repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are the fastest growing category of work-related illness. Across North America, half of all workers' compensation claims are due to MSI, the most common being low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome; shoulder pain, and neck pain. It is estimated that over 50% of all RSIs can be prevented. Most work-related musculoskeletal injuries result through risk factors attributed to awkward postures. These risk factors arise from poorly designed workstations and equipment condition, but the biggest rise is due to the computer terminal and the physical stresses it places on joints, muscles, nerves, tendons, bones, general comfort and health. Especially in the hip area!
We must respect many factors in the way we organize workstations. However, EBA is the first to recognize that the most important ergonomic workstation is the "Bio-ergonomic Workstation™" - Otherwise known as our very own body! This requires a paradigm shift in thought; EBA believes the best a critical ergonomic work tool is an EBA Posture Shirt and EBA G1 Tights™ and Footgear.
EBA garment solutions stimulate muscles to joints balance while simultaneously allowing you to move easier without restriction, to do things more efficiently and less prone to injury. It doesn't matter if you are climbing the corporate ladder, shipping supplies, or sitting at a desk in front of a computer terminal; EBA solutions require only a form fitting garment that can be worn as outer or under clothing.
Never has a work tool offered such an economic benefit.
