Mueller: Pioneers of Sports Medicine
Wednesday, 23 August 2017 | Admin
Here at Wrist Supports, we're always on the lookout for brands that really know the ins and outs of anatomy and how best to support it. Our fingers, hands and wrists put up with a lot every day, and sometimes require a little extra support to help us perform at our best. This is why we love Mueller, a sports medicine brand that is dedicated to maintaining strength, support and balance throughout the body, but especially the wrists. Read on to find out more about Mueller's history and company ethics.
Who are Mueller?
Fresh off the court from his days as a power forward for the basketball team at the University of Wisconsin, Curt Mueller had dreams of revolutionising sports medicine for the athletes of the future. From humble beginnings in 1959, Curt hatched his first big idea while working at his father's pharmacy, starting his long legacy of dedication to athletic excellence, innovations and industry firsts.
Knowing that he couldn't ride two horses at one time, Curt later sold the pharmacy in 1970 so that he could pursue sports medicine full time, which was the jump Mueller needed to become the power brand it is known as today. For decades after, athletes worldwide have relied on Mueller products to bring superior levels of protection and support in all areas of the body.
What Can Mueller Do for You?
Always ahead of the curve when it comes to design innovation, Mueller was the first ever company to offer knee braces with the patented triaxial hinge, providing smooth and natural motion. They also pride themselves in providing braces and supports using non-petroleum and largely recyclable materials in order to encourage sustainable living.
Mueller's mission is to help the active sportsperson, whether they are an elite athlete or a weekend warrior, taking their game to the next level. Preventing injuries, recovering from injuries and defending against new ones is always at the forefront of their mind, meaning that they are always coming up with cutting-edge ways to enhance athletic performance.
Mueller at Wrist Supports
Over the decades, Mueller have worked with countless athletes in order to understand the demands placed on their bodies, which is why every one of their products has been designed for ultimate comfort, support and control. However, they also understand that in this age of technology, it's not just sports activity that puts strain on our wrists and hands, but everyday activities such as typing and repetitive thumb swiping. As such, all Mueller products have been optimised for the athlete and the general citizen in mind.
Products such as the Mueller Carpal Tunnel Wrist Stabiliser and the Mueller Adjustable Wrist Brace with Splint provide advanced support and protection to weak or injured wrists that have been affected by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Both supports immobilise the wrist in a natural position while allowing you to maintain full dexterity of your thumb and fingers so that you can get on with daily life. For more seasoned athletes, the Mueller HG80 Premium Wrist Brace is made from a flexible, moisture-wicking material that ensures that wrists stay protected against sports-related injuries.
