XT BRACE

BRACES FOR THE ACTIVE LIFESTYLE CREATED BY U.S. INTELLIGENCE OFFICERS AND MASTERED FOR THE ATHLETE
  • Austin, TX

XT BRACE was born out of necessity when created by U.S. Intelligence Officers while in a remote region of Southwest Asia to address immediate pain in a sprained knee. XT BRACE is the first and fully integrated brace with a gel pack that stays in place. XT BRACE was created with the athlete in mind, and every design aspect reflects that. From the adjustable sizing to the gel pocket holder, no design aspect was overlooked. The specially designed gel pack stays warmer longer and stays colder than other gel packs on the market. The gel pack is made of a high-performance nylon, and each brace has a specially designed gel pack to fit tightly in the unit. The gel pack can be frozen or heated repeatedly in a microwave or hot water. The gel pack can even be thrown in a cooler with ice while on a camping trip or in an ice box while playing a round of golf.

XT BRACE is designed to be used with or without the gel pack. The braces can be used for post recovery after an intense workout, post injury, part of a physical therapy program or for soreness in a specific area. Use the support when you need a little extra support during your morning run, and use the gel pack insert for helping with those sore areas. Our customers use the brace as directed by their medical professional for support, healing, and hot/cold therapy. Our braces aid in support and relief from pain, swelling and inflammation due to tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis or injury. Our different braces work best when addressing bruising, contusions, muscle strains, weak/sore areas, swelling, stiff muscles and joint pain.

HOW XT BRACE WAS BORN


XT BRACE was born in the most random of places on the fields of Southwest Asia by U.S. Intelligence Officers. In this rugged terrain where there was no access to medical care, and where the mission was the only priority, they had to continue despite the pain of twisted ankles, contusions, muscle strains or joint pain. While traveling and operating in such a terrain, sometimes all alone for days and weeks at a time, there was no place to turn to alleviate the pain.

On a dusty and steamy day, one of the U.S. Intelligence Officers with a bruised shin and pain in the knee walked into a garment district of a provincial capital and bought a stretch material to make a brace. He then went across town to the local medical supply company and had a custom ice/hot pack made. Next, he took the garment to a local tailor to make a knee brace in which the gel pack would fit comfortably. The result was the construction of a specialized knee brace that could temporarily alleviate pain.
The small group of officers continued to make and use these braces for their personal use. Whenever there was pain, they alleviated it with their custom braces with hot and cold compression. The officers ensured that the braces and gel packs stayed in place because they weren't out for play; rather,they were out on a mission.

The XT stands for "X-Treme" because their daily duties involved extreme conditions. From those extreme conditions, the XT BRACE was born for the active lifestyle.XT BRACE is designed to be used with or without the gel pack. The braces can be used for post recovery after an intense workout, post injury, part of a physical therapy program or for soreness in a specific area. Use the support when you need a little extra support during your morning run, and use the gel pack insert for helping with those sore areas.
