Forme, a human-performance company that designs patented performance and recovery wearables to correct posture, offers Ergo shorts targeting back-related stress and strain.
The Forme Ergo (short for ergonomic) short is engineered to keep the lower back in constant traction while tucking in the tummy with core activation and engaging spinal muscle memory to relieve back-stress pain naturally and sustainably.
The Ergo shorts ($108) feature a patented 5-inch triple mesh waistband inlay for core activation and spinal extension designed to enable back support. Additionally, it boosts joint biofeedback with an anti-pelvic tilt function.
With biomechanics design at its core, Forme says its Ergo shorts can help reduce costs and trips to healthcare facilities, increase back strength, boost productivity and performance and reduce pain.
“It is the most ideal biomechanically designed ergonomics undershorts on the market today,” said Stephen Liu, chairman and founder of Forme. “You can wear them all day and all night just like your undershorts. Pair them with our arch booster socks for the best lower-body alignment, or pair them with the Forme core tee or ace tee for best total body-alignment training and care.”
Forme says its innovative process is based on scientific evidence and rigorous, proven methods. Its wearable posture and performance technology products are built with an emphasis on mobility, performance and recovery, which can be easily integrated into daily life – training, competition, recovery, travel and sleep – for the improvement of physical and cognitive health by mitigating the risk of injury and fostering quicker recovery.
The performance wearables are designed to engage muscle memory to keep the body aligned, with less spinal pain, while accelerating recovery.
“Forme is the first product that I’ve seen significant results when it comes to disorders of the hip, the SI joint and the lower back,” said Dr. Michael Gerhardt, orthopedic surgeon and team physician for the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team and the LA Galaxy. “The key technology encourages the hip joint to go into a neutral position, which will reduce stress to the joints and engage muscle memory to enhance recovery.”
