I am Andrew Jacobs, inventor of the SwaddlePax Vest

After years of abusing my body through various types of martial arts, tennis, and exercising too hard, I found myself in the emergency room a year ago. As it turned out, I had messed up almost all of the discs in my lower back and by that point I could barely walk.

I resolved to recondition myself to get back to some semblance of normalcy. The only time I got relief from the searing pain was with ice or after a very hot bath when I would wrap myself tightly in a large towel, virtually swaddling myself like a baby. The weeks passed and as the intense pain subsided, I began to formulate a plan as to how I could help myself. I wanted a way that I could reduce my pain daily for as long as possible. I knew I would never be cured and would always have back pain, but it was up to me to find a way to deal with it.

I never forgot how good that towel felt after my bath and invented a garment that would replicate a similar feeling. I wanted this garment to also be used with ice/heat packs and stay in position without having to hold them. This is how I came up with the SwaddlePax Vest.  As you can see, it does everything I need. A continuous feeling of compression, a locating system so that ice/heat packs could be adhered and kept in position, plus the outside waist belts which add further compression and support as needed.

Did the vest help me? Absolutely.
