In 1961, from the basement of his father’s pharmacy, university basketball player, Curt Mueller, began producing some of the first ‘sports medicine’ products available on the US market. From their base in Wisconsin, this family-owned business has now grown to become the internationally acclaimed, Mueller Sports Medicine Inc.
Now, the range of Mueller sports medicine products covers every aspect of protection, treatment, support and recovery. Many of the most popular ranges rely on three key therapies: support, compression and heat retention. Support reduces the stress on joints, tendons and muscles. Compression limits swelling and provides protection from further injury. Finally, heat retention increases blood circulation, prevents muscle spasms and eases muscular pain.
Though designed mainly to help sportsmen and women to improve performance and overcome their injuries, Mueller products also help people of all ages and abilities to carry on with their regular jobs and everyday activities while recovering from surgery, illness or injury. For manual workers dealing with the lifting and movement of heavy loads, Mueller’s Adjustable Back Brace can be worn all day to reduce wear and tear on the spine. Even a simple cooling treatment like Mueller’s classic, Reusable Hot/Cold Pack is useful to keep in the freezer for treating minor twists, sprains, strains and burns.
As well as offering sport-specific therapy options, Mueller’s product ranges provide professional and recreational athletes with options that match the severity of the injury. From a lightweight, elastic knee support, to a ‘pro’, hinged knee brace – it’s good to know that Mueller are right behind you with a product that will get you back in play.
The company’s impressive list of patented products now features some of the latest developments in advance materials engineering. These lightweight, high-performance materials include special carbon composites, super-strong plastic stays and high-tech, anti-bacterial, moisture management fabrics.
