- Jonathan Story
Overview The JBIT MedPro is an unparalleled device designed to complement rehabilitation and fitness regimens by providing relief of chronic pain. Developed by NBA All-Star Jonathan Bender, it is what enabled him to return to the league after four years of forced retirement caused by persistent knee joint pain. He continues to use it today to maintain full-body fitness and as natural joint pain relief.
From roots to wings After entering the NBA in 1999 as the number five overall draft pick, Jonathan soon realized that a painful growth spurt he suffered during childhood was haunting him. Desperate to take pressure off his knees, he engineered his own apparatus using a few supplies he picked up at a drugstore. Through trial and error, he successfully created a series of bands running from his waist down to his Achilles tendon, all attached by a harness and stirrup. The prototype proved to relieve Jonathan’s pain and provide effective joint pain relief, which prompted him to put the product in motion for mass distribution. It is used to relieve body aches and pain and for physical therapy for lower back pain, knee pain, and joint pain. His design tested remarkably in a biomechanical analysis performed at Purdue University and, fast forward to today, is available on the market as the JBIT MedPro for natural joint pain relief.
