Elements Body - Glove / Sleeve

Elements Body is an orthosis made of lycra fabric, composed of various panels. It is designed to give constant proprioceptive feedback through pressure and resistance. The function of Elements Body is to improve posture and stability. This is achieved by providing increased pressure to the body through a snug custom fit.
