Scapular Gilet by Angel Med

  • Sale
  • £399.00


Introducing a revolutionary gilet style jacket specially designed to control Scapular Dyskinesis, often referred to as winging of the shoulder blade(s).

This highly technical sleeveless jacket works to control the shoulders through a series of powerful components concealed within and is designed to control the entire shoulder structure including, the shoulder blades (Scapulae), bringing them into the chest wall. 

Importantly, the gilet provides vital biofeedback enabling the wearer to identify when they are winging. Body symmetry and core muscle recruitment is also improved relieving tension and related pain in the shoulders, back and pelvis.

It may be surprising to learn that most with this condition don't know they have it. Generally, none of us know the position of our shoulders unless we look in the mirror.

Research by London consultant and shoulder guru Mr Ian Bayley shows how important it is to identify wrong shoulder position and the consequences of ignoring it, read more about Scapular Dyskinesis (shoulder malfunction).

KEY POINTS,

✔ Although powerful, does not create dependency, instead promotes a ‘core on’ posture

✔ Maintains shoulder blade (scapulae) position, close to the chest wall, adding stability and strength to shoulder function 

✔ Encourages better musculoskeletal alignment for improved balance, strength and nerve-flow

 Provides essential bio-feedback for a better understanding of how 'good posture' should feel and when established, instils subconscious automatic correction

✔ Lifts the diaphragm up and away from pelvic activity, reducing strain in the lower back

✔ Encourages opening of the chest cavity improving balance and breathing

✔ Stimulates a brain-body connection promoting a sense of knowing where your shoulders are

✔ Training the brain to subconsciously override a tendency to adopt bad posture and achieving symmetry without thinking about it

    Surprising and Powerful Links Between Posture and Mood 

    WHAT IS GOOD POSTURE

    MEDICAL FINDINGS

    ✔ Our studies indicate that by wearing the gilet for as little as two days consecutively, musculoskeletal alignment and muscle patterning can be significantly improved, even after removing muscle memory retains good posture, although for how long depends on the individual.

     ✔ Within as little as 20 minutes of wearing tension in the shoulders, and neck can disappear. This may depend on the severity and can take up to two days 

    ✔ As a useful diagnostics tool i.e. for unexplained hip pain. In an example case, chronic pain was eliminated unmasking an un-diagnosed shoulder blade winging condition, Scapular Dyskinesis a debilitating and previously incurable condition affecting a considerable number of people who are often unaware of it. The gilet is now providing the only means of managing this condition.

    ✔ May help prevent the onset of sciatica and is known to alleviate back and sciatic nerve pain

    ✔ Improvement in breathing has also been reported. COPD sufferers have found benefit and as a result, have been able to reduce steroid puffer use

    ✔ Can improve muscle soreness [*DOMS] recovery time after working out *delayed-onset muscle soreness

     WHY IS GOOD POSTURE SO DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE?

    Our shoulder blades dictate the position of our shoulders and shoulder blades have very few mechanoreceptors (the means by which the brain connects to them). This, therefore, means we don't know where our shoulders are.

    Combine this with the brains' reluctance to accept us upright (The brain wants us safely down on all fours), generations growing taller, living longer, long hours spent hunched over mobiles and computers plus, tiredness then you begin to see why we ALL have posture issues.
