Baby Boomers Brace Themselves for Their Changing Bodies

November 03, 2009

Wellgate for Women makes ankle, wrist, and knee supports designed specifically to fit the proportions of women’s bodies.

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (November 3, 2009):  Female baby boomers are applying their characteristic creativity and individuality to the problem of their changing bodies, and are supporting their ankles, wrists, and knees with Wellgate braces and supports made specifically for the female form.

“Women are 41% more likely than men to suffer from arthritis, in addition to many other muscle and joint problems as they age,” said Megan Barclay, a physical therapist in NYC.  “While women are more likely to be affected than men, braces and supports are not characteristically made to fit the female body.  Wellgate changes all that.”

Wellgate for Women makes braces that are designed to fit women’s bodies, using women’s specific proportions.  Wellgate’s braces are engineered to be form-fitting and comfortable for women, while still providing powerful support, stabilizing and helping to protect fragile joints.

Arthritis is a name for over 100 different conditions that affect joints in the musculoskeletal system, and can cause fatigue, tenderness, inflammation, and muscle pain.  Arthritis can be devastating to active women who are used to an adventurous lifestyle and who strive to get the most out of life.

“Physical therapy and exercise help to alleviate arthritis symptoms, and a brace that fits the contours of the female body helps women to exercise more safely,” said Barclay.  “You wouldn’t wear ill-fitting men’s shoes when you exercise, and you shouldn’t wear ill-fitting men’s braces.”

Wellgate’s Perfectfit Wrist Support, for instance, takes advantage of soothing memory foam and soft, supple fabrics to provide intensive comfort day or night, helping relieve pain from arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome, in addition to stabilizing the wrist.

Made specifically for the shape of women’s knees, Wellgate offers a High Performance Knee Suport made of comfortable, breathable material that features stabilizers to increase side-to-side knee steadiness.  A lighter weight, daily wear option is also available in Wellgate’s Ultra Light Knee Support, which is not only designed to help support stiff, weak, sore or arthritic knees, but is also designed to wear comfortably and discreetly under women’s clothes. 

For ankle sprains and strains, Wellgate’s Slimfit Ankle Support helps relieve pain, reinforce ankle ligaments and help reduce swelling and is made to fit comfortably inside a woman’s shoe. 

“Our bodies make new demands on us as we age,” said Barclay. “Luckily, baby boomers are especially good at adapting to changes and blazing new trails.  Wellgate for Women’s braces and supports are powerful aids for women who demand equal treatment when it comes to their physical health and well-being.”
