Everything was special about inventing CORESHORTS™. It was a great idea that many have said “I thought of something like that” but no one else had put the time, money, sweat or risk into making it happen. The Core Activation System “X” was created to provide a simple solution for enhanced core support, improved stability and optimizing function.
CORESHORTS™ – an effective strategy to enhance functional movement. The idea was hatched during a meeting of some great minds over a few beer – CORESHORTS™ featuring the Core Activation System “X” technology – was created and first drawn on the back of a beer coaster.
They are not just a compression short. The patented technology is designed to provide localized circumferential compression to the low back and pelvis while connecting the leg to the opposite hip just like the anatomical cross support of the core anatomy. CORESHORTS™ provides the only anatomically correct support system with strategically angled elastics made to specific tension specifications for optimal motion control.
CORESHORTS™ enjoyed great early success from hundreds of professional athletes as well as any person who required improved stability and motion control assistance. CORESHORTS™ provide beneficial support during the recovery of groin injuries, pelvic sprains, hip strains like high hamstring, quadriceps and hip flexor, lower abdominal support and improved function after Total Hip Replacement.
CORESHORTS™ has been highlighted on of a few very popular TV Shows like the Discovery Channel Show called Daily Planet featuring the BC Lions. There was no deal on CBC's Dragon’s Den but the show produced three episodes about Coreshorts including being voted “the one that got away” as featured in an episode with Rick Nash at the Columbus Blue Jackets training camp.
The rapid sales success supported by the consistent positive feedback from athletic trainers, athletes and all users caught the attention of Under Armour and a licensing deal was put into play.
It has been 9 years and CORETECTION is back in control of the CORESHORTS™ technology with plans to enhance both fit and function. CORETECTION is also looking to add other beneficial products that bridge the gap between injury and functional recovery while optimizing performance.
We are very excited to have the opportunity to be back helping people improve their function and their lives – Innovation that works!
