Made from a natural silicone rubber, SuperSkin® helps you get back into any regular activity that strains your knees.
This innovative new brace works by decelerating rather than inhibiting your natural range-of-motion like bulky metal/material braces.
Great For Any Water Sports / Wicks Away Sweat / Keeps Your Muscles Warm During Any Activity!
Invented by a health professional in San Francisco who was tired of non-solutions from a stale industry. SuperSkin® rapidly came to life via design work:
And testing multiple materials and manufacturing processes to achieve the quality we wanted:
For over a year, we've tested it across a variety of activities including running, swimming, surfing, snow sports, cycling, boxing, weight training, hiking and more. SuperSkin® provides the support you need for any activity that puts a strain on your knees!!
Our product has been tested and proven to work. We've done the research, been granted our patent and trademark rights, and now want to get our product into your hands!!
We've identified a few important updates we'd like to make so we can bring you the best product possible. We've done everything we can to get it this far, but now we need your backing to help us take the next step!!
The process required to create the molds for SuperSkin® is extremely expensive and we can't do it without your help! Once the molds are made, we can start manufacturing at scale and ensure timely delivery to our backers!!!
“The device helps stabilize my knee joint and gives me more confidence. I feel stronger when I wear it and my knee feels better even after I remove the brace. I love it and would not ski or workout without it!”
One of our earliest beta testers was a 66-year-old lawyer and mother of two who enjoys being active. She suffered an initial knee injury in 2005, and pain reappeared in 2015 and persisted through 2018.
Her injury included swelling of the right knee joint with sever degenerative changes including spurring, loose bone chips, and a torn meniscus. This was the worst knee pain she had felt during the course of her various injuries, to the point she was unable to walk and felt anxious. The potential for knee pain is always on her mind, and she was seeking a better solution.
While working through all her rehab, she was introduced to SuperSkin® by its creator, who was also her personal trainer, in August 2018. She started wearing SuperSkin® when she was riding her bike, skiing and working out at the gym.
Thanks for checking our project out, we hope you'll support us!
Risks and challenges
While our current version has been well received, one issue that occurred for some users was chafing on the back of their knees after wearing for 6+ hours. With our new design, we have removed a circular area of material from behind the knee to resolve this issue. We've also reduced the overall thickness of the orthosis.
While we are confident it will still have the same integrity as our current version, we won't know until we make the new ones. This could potentially delay our delivery of the final product, but not by long. We've done the work and remained diligent to ensure our product is effective, and are ready to take it to the next level.
We've built in a few extra months into our delivery timeline to provide a buffer while we finalize our latest design. We'll make sure we remain available for questions and keep our backers up to date throughout the process until the moment SuperSkin® is delivered to your doorstep.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
