CopperGel and Nufabrx have jointly created pain relieving, copper infused clothing. The technology involves optimising textile materials with active ingredients at the yarn level, creating a new type of product category - health wear. The clothing produced this way actively soothes pain. The pain relief at the point of contact lasts up to 25 machine washes.

The collaboration and expanded product portfolio are scheduled for launch March 31.

Nufabrx patented technology optimises textile materials with active ingredients at the yarn level in order to maximise their potential. The infused fabrics, inclusive of compression socks, knee, arm sleeves and more, respond to the body’s temperature and moisture, allowing consumers to benefit from a consistent, all day release of Capsaicin medication and copper into the skin. This provides predictable, effective and long-lasting pain relief at the point of contact up to 25 machine washes and months of wear.

CopperGel’s line of OTC products are FDA registered and proven to knock out pain, treating arthritis, joint and muscle pain. Copper has natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that have been used for centuries for healing, making their line of products effective for pain relief. When coupled with nufabrx technology, consumers receive the added benefit of an all-day consistent release.

Mike Tyson has had his fair share of injuries throughout the years and believes that this is the technology of the future. “After all the pain I’ve endured in my life, this is an easy way to knockout the pain simply by getting dressed in the morning,” said Tyson who along with Rob Hickman founded The Ranch Companies.

Achieving overall health and wellness will be simplified by replacing the hassle and cost of using pain medications, patches or creams, with clothing that actually benefits one’s body. According to a 2017 study from Kantar Futures, 75 per cent of adults fail to maintain their health directions, whether that is applying a cream or taking their medication.

This new product line will include copper knee sleeves, arm sleeves and compression socks. “We believe clothing will start to care for your body in entirely new ways. We see the day when well-being is simply part of our everyday outfit. Rather than applying a cream, taking a pill or using a patch, you’ll only need to get dressed in CopperGel’s new line of garments. We love the idea of offering that ‘1-2 punch’” said Nufabrx chief executive officer, Jordan Schindler.

“Our partnership with nufabrx enables us to extend CopperGel’s pain relief family of products by leveraging this patented biomaterial technology to deliver CopperGel’s pain relieving ingredients throughout the entire day,” said Steven Krane, president of CopperGel.
