Press Release: Spring Loaded and NFL Alumni Announce Partnership to Benefit Members with Knee Arthritis and Injuries.
Spring Loaded is pleased to announce a partnership with the NFL Alumni, the association of retired NFL players. The NFL Alumni is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve, assist and inform former players, staff, and their families.
– July, 2019 – “This partnership will give our members access to one of the best knee braces on the market,” says NFL Alumni CEO Beasley Reece. “The team of professionals over at Spring Loaded Technology will work with our members and their insurance providers to see if they are good candidates for a Spring Loaded brace, and determine what is and is not covered by insurance.”
Developed in collaboration with the military for people whose knees have endured years of wear and tear, Spring Loaded braces reduce pressure across the entire knee and assist leg extension. This provides a new non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical option for NFL Alumni members with chronic knee pain. Research shows that Spring Loaded braces can decrease knee joint loads equivalent to that of losing 45 lbs of bodyweight. For many people with knee arthritis and injuries, this can help to rapidly relieve pain and improve mobility.
“We are excited to partner with NFL Alumni,” says Spring Loaded CEO, Chris Cowper-Smith. “We look forward to working with them to help restore their members’ pain-free strength and mobility, so they can get back to the active lifestyles they know so well.”
