A Man Using Wearbands as Fitness Training Equipment


Dr. Shavelson’s Story “As a podiatrist and biomedical engineer of the lower extremity for 30+ years, my life’s work has focused on the upright, standing or moving individual biomechanically, surgically and functionally. I have been involved in clinical research, hospital and private practice, undergraduate and residency training of doctors, the training of physical therapists, athletic and strength trainers as well as professional and weekend warrior type athletes of all kinds, ages, genders and ability at all levels of heath and expectations. About five years ago, I was introduced to a wearable resistance band training (WRB) system. For the first time, I could train patients and improve their stability, support, strength, symmetry and balance while they were moving about dynamically, as well as when performing athletic activities.

About a year ago, I was introduced to a newer wearable resistance band training system called WearBands, which had several upgrades that I had envisioned, which would expand the scope and success of wearable resistance training, and since then, I have never looked back. Results from incorporating The WearBands Resistance Band Training System with professional foot centering training programs are dramatically better, faster and more successful. The WearBands System improved upon all aspects of my programs and even added some benefits that I had imagined were impossible.

I have established a new company, which exponentially adds to the benefit of wearable resistance band training, called WearBands Therapeutic®. This company allows licensed and certified professionals to develop custom one on one relationships with their patients (clients) as well as allowing those with a WearBands System to train at home with training protocols specific to their physical therapy goals.

PPublished Research: My relationship with WearBands has since grown, and I am now WearBands’ Medical Director where I respond to the needs of those who have purchased the system and research and publish on the use and results of wearable resistance band training. My first paper on the subject has been published in a peer-reviewed journal, and can be found here:



I could not be more excited to be using the groundbreaking WearBands Training System to foster my career-long mission of improving the quality of life of individuals with acute or chronic pain and performance and balance issues through the application of biomechanics, my patented foot-typing system and high-tech cutting edge therapeutic tools like WearBands.
