Born from Kinesio Taping
IntelliSkin inventor, Dr. Tim Brown, grew to understand his future creation while working as the medical director on the ASP surf and AVP volleyball tours during the 1980s. As an early innovator in functional taping, he developed a hybrid kinesio technique known as SPRT (Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping). SPRT techniques were designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to injured muscles and joints without restricting range of motion. Used on everyone from Olympians to NFL players, the technique quickly became a staple in the athletic world as it allowed injured athletes to compete despite their injuries. Since the early 1990’s, Dr. Brown has taught SPRT taping to well over a thousand doctors (Orthopedists, Family and Sports Medicine Specialists, Physiatrists, Chiropractors), Physical Therapists, and Athletic Trainers.
Dr. Brown’s instinctive techniques got athletes asking for taping remedies so often, that he needed something that could do the job when he wasn’t there. Many late nights of trial and error using remnants of old wetsuits, he devised a wearable technology that mimicked his taping technique. One product he developed, the S3 (Spine and Scapula Stabilizer), is a therapeutic synthetic shirt with adjustable straps that is prescribed by medical professionals to improve posture, reduce pain and speed up injury recovery time. A company was formed to sell the S3, with the investment backing of a group of prominent orthopedic surgeons. The mission: to design a comfortable, Smart Compression shirt that would instantly improve posture and spinal alignment for everyone. Born was the IntelliSkin Shirt with our patented PostureCue™ technology. IntelliSkin apparel is medically proven to improve both posture and alignment. Dr. Brown’s ultimate goal is to help everybody to look better, feel better and perform better. We continue to pursue that goal every day. STAND TALL
