You don't have to tell chiropractor Tim Brown about the benefits of good posture.
The company started by Brown — a Newport Beach native who has been heavily involved in the sports medicine industry by helping, healing and training top athletes — has come out with a posture-correcting shirt for men and women that's nabbing the attention of bigtime pro athletes, actors and musicians.
IntelliSkin LLC offers six types of posture-enhancing products: the Eve Shirt for women, LC-1 Reactivator Shorts, Foundation Shirt for men, Foundation Posturecue Tank for men, Foundation Posturecue Sports Bra and the Posturecue V-Tee for men to wear under suits and business attire.
The Newport Beach-based company sells its products for $85 to $175 via the company's website, http://www.intelliskin.net, as well as in the offices of some 600 orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, chiropractors and specialty trainers.
Athletes, ranging from pro surfer Kelly Slater and beach volleyball pro Misty May-Treanor to baseball player Greg Dobbs and NBA champ Derek Fisher, stand by IntelliSkin products, believing they have enhanced their performances and minimized injuries.
