How it works
The JBIT MedPro strengthens the core and upper and lower extremity muscles, aiding in the relief of back, hip, knee and shoulder pain. Its unique design serves a dual purpose in relieving joint pressure and delivering a powerful workout. Completely portable, it adapts to the body’s natural motion, making it ideal for everyday wear. With an adjustable fit, multiple levels of resistance and padded back support, the JBIT MedPro is as comfortable as it is functional.
What it does
BACK PAIN / SCIATICA
Placing external resistance against the waist belt, the JBIT MedPro triggers core musculature to activate. The JBIT MedPro also provides proprioceptive feedback, helping users find their ideal pelvic position. These dual actions can result in the removal of pressure from the spine, as well as the leg pain associated with sciatica.
Exercising with the JBIT MedPro provides eccentric and concentric contractions which, in turn, recruit the quadricep muscles, helping to protect the knee.
Placing resistance on the lower extremities, the JBIT MedPro requires muscles surrounding the pelvis to contract, helping to strengthen and support the hips.
Using the JBIT MedPro therapy bands to increase shoulder strength is a safe alternative to weights, and helps to decrease the discomfort associated with shoulder pain.
The JBIT MedPro generates added resistance with every step while walking or jogging, resulting in a higher caloric burn and allowing for the possibility of faster results.
“ The JBIT MedPro is completely counterintuitive. At first examination,
it would appear to put more force across the knees, but because of the way it’s engineered, it actually takes pressure off the knees by evening out the load and making the legs work the way they’re supposed to work. ”

JBIT MedPro components
BACK PAD / WAIST BELT
With an adjustable fit and padded back support, the waist belt is designed for comfort. The belt accommodates three optional levels of resistance, ranging from easy (level 3) to strenuous (level 1).
WAIST BELT EXTENDER
For users that require more length around the waist, the belt extender ensures a perfect, custom fit.
LEG RESISTANCE BANDS
white pair extra light
Provides the least amount of resistance. Users are encouraged to begin with white bands on level three.
yellow pair light
Provides a moderate amount of resistance. As strength is gained, users may consider advancing to yellow bands.
green pair heavy
Provides the greatest amount of resistance. As strength is gained, users may consider advancing to green bands.
The leg bands connect to the ankle sleeves via O-rings. Users can wear the sleeves independent of the JBIT MedPro system for added ankle and arch support.
ARM RESISTANCE BANDS
yellow pair light
Provides a moderate amount of resistance.
green pair heavy
Provides the greatest amount of resistance.
The arm bands connect to the handles via O-rings.
BLUE GEL PACK
Designed to offer maximum comfort during therapy, the gel pack can be heated or cooled and then inserted into the pocket on the inside of the back pad.
Designed to help stretch muscles pre- and post-therapy.
Relief from shoulder, knee, hip, joint, back and sciatica pain
Strengthen core and upper extremities
Helping to define muscle tone
Improved posture and balance
Weight loss and increased mobility
