Clinically Proven to Stimulate Core Muscle Activity

Dr. Andrew L. Chen, M.D.

“In dealing with elite skiers and Olympic athletes, I am convinced that proper posture results in activation of the ‘core’ muscles, including the abdominals and the often neglected lumbosacral and paraspinal muscles.  The yogawrap, which promotes proper posture when seated, allows for conditioning of the core muscles through activation while simply sitting at work or driving in a car.  We are starting research using EMG to measure the muscle activity to demonstrate that this indeed happens.”
