About Antibody, Inc.

NewSquareABlogoBodyguards were invented with a single thought while having lunch in November of 1995.

“Make rubber work like muscle to heal the human body”

My goal was to make a device that fits, feels and functions like skin and muscle. I wanted to replace to ace bandages and tape for muscle injuries.

As if by fate, in December of 1995 I suffered a severe injury to my left shoulder. I tore my rotator cuff. My injuries required major reconstructive surgery and a nine-month rehabilitation. I designed a brace to protect my own shoulder using a neoprene polymer to work like muscle. This material was light, soft and comfortable while effectively and comfortably supporting my injured shoulder.

While using my invention to rehab my shoulder injury, I discovered benefits that even I had not imagined. So confident that these benefits were real and not imagined I formed Antibody, Inc. and invested in an ergonomic study of my invention by the Ball State University Human Performance Laboratory. The results were remarkable (see performance tests).
