Whenever you’re sitting down at home or while traveling, using your smartphone or reading a book can get your arms tired, and sometimes even numb, especially when doing so for long periods of time. And whenever your arms do get tired from holding your smartphone or a book, the first thing you probably do is to change position in order to relief the strain in your arms and also to get some blood flow back in them to prevent them from getting numb. This is quite a common thing to happen to most people, and something that you’ve probably experienced yourself. If that’s your case, then you’ll be happy to know that there’s actually a very simple, yet ingenious solution that can easily fix this issue. Meet the Armbie.
The Armbie is a dual-arm support sling made of a soft and durable satin-like stretch fabric which fits tightly around your torso and holds your arms and elbows comfortably in front of you in a nice resting position, allowing you to move freely while simultaneously giving your upper body and shoulders the support they need so that you can effortlessly use your smartphone or tablet or even read a book while you’re sitting at home or while traveling. It also comes stitched with a dual-purpose pocket that can hold a small item like your phone inside it and also offers you a neat way of packing the Armbie by simply stuffing its fabric into its pocket when you’re done using it, along with a small elastic loop that allows you to easily clip it with its included carabiner to attach it to a backpack, suitcase, or purse.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ARMBIE
The Armbie was invented by Chris Osse as a solution for a problem he experienced in an 8 hour flight. During said flight, Osse was in a window seat where he was sitting between two other big gentlemen, where he uncomfortably had to hold his arms and re-position his body several times throughout the flight, which left him feeling soreness in his left arm over the next 3 days.
Over the next few days, the idea of an effective solution for solving this common issue finally came to him. Osse realized that all he needed was a support system for his arms that would properly support his upper body and allow him to relax while sitting in cramped spaces without taking up too much room. And thus, the Armbie was born.
Whether you’re simply looking to chill with a book or your smartphone while sitting at home, or even while you’re traveling by airplane, train, bus, or your family’s car and you need a reliable way to keep your upper body comfortable during those long hours, the Armbie is the perfect solution for that.
Now, let’s have a slightly more detailed look at the Armbie and check out how this dual-arm support sling is designed to work.
DESIGN & SPECS
Starting with its size, you’ll be happy to know that the Armbie is currently available in five (x5) different sizing options, including Small (S), Medium (M), Large (L), Extra-Large (XL), and Extra-Extra-Large (XXL).
This dual-arm support sling has a soft and durable satin-like stretch fabric that’s made from a special polyester and nylon blend, which not only makes it really soft and very durable, but also gives it just the right amount of stretch.
Its stretchy fabric is what allows the Armbie to fit tightly around your torso from just below your rib cage to just over your shoulders, making it capable of perfectly holding your arms and elbows in front of you in a nice and comfortable resting position.
Thanks to its clever and stretchy design, you can move comfortably and freely inside it while having it wrapped around your torso, while the Armbie itself provides your upper body and shoulders with all the stability and support they need so that you can effortlessly use your smartphone or tablet or even read a book while you’re sitting at home or while traveling, all without your arms even experiencing strain, pain, or numbness.
Furthermore, this comfy dual-arm support sling also comes stitched with a dual-purpose pocket that can hold a small item inside it such as your smartphone, an iPod, etc.
Not only that, but its dual-purpose pocket also offers you a neat and clever way of packing the Armbie by simply stuffing its fabric into its pocket when you’re done using it.
Lastly, the Armbie’s pocket also comes stitched with a small elastic loop that allows you to easily clip it with its included carabiner so that you can conveniently attach it to a backpack, a suitcase, or even a purse.
HOW TO WEAR? // HOW TO PACK?
Wearing the Armbie is a quick, easy, and super simple thing to do. The same can also be said about packing its soft and stretchy fabric inside its pocket when you’re done using the Armbie and want to store it away.
