Vancouver2Toronto Features Mama Strut
Excerpt- Childbirth is a life changing event, but it is also very taxing on the body, both before, during and afterwards. The Mama Strut by PELV-ICE™ is a patent pending medical device designed to help women with the recovery process by helping to ease the pain naturally, reducing the need to painkiller drugs though therapeutic heat and ice to manage discomfort. It works by supporting all sides of the pelvis, pelvic floor, abdomen, hips and lower back. Although every postpartum is different, almost all include discomforts of the pelvis’ soft tissue. Soft tissue needs time to rest to heal and is aided by ice and/or heat during the healing process. Protect, Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate and Support (referred to by professionals as P.R.I.C.E.) are the main components of advice given by health care professionals when we damage our soft tissue. The Mama Strut is a device designed to aid in these areas.
A Mom’s Vision
Designed by a Jill Bigelow, a serial entrepreneur, finance professional, and Mom of three children, the Mama Strut is a wearable soft brace that can be worn under clothes, under loose-fitting clothes it’s difficult to notice. Jill was inspired to create the Mama Strut by looking at other braces for soft-tissue injuries, and discovering there wasn’t a lot of good solutions to all the problems new moms face problem on the market. The Mama Strut is also just the first product by PELV-ICE to utilize the system, Jill Bigelow plans to develop the technology for the Mama Strut into a range of other braces for soft-tissue injuries.
