Headline Speaker:
MattBruback
After receiving a knee injury as a professional baseball
pitcher, Matt Bruback’s coaches were constantly pulling
on his uniform trying to get him to feel his balance
point to make him more consistent in the strike zone.
He realized he couldn’t relate to what they
were trying to get him to feel, so while with
the Baltimore Orioles he created a weighted
belt to help himself become more aware of
his body positioning. With the help of his
mother and sister in creating the prototype,
Mr. Bruback created the Balance Pro
Sportbelt™ to improve balance for athletes
with sensory deficits.
Two years later, Mr. Bruback took the
Balance Pro Sportbelt™ to an agency that
serves persons with disabilities, where it
was redesigned by occupational and physical therapists
to help children with sensory needs and dubbed the
Miracle Belt™. Matt Bruback had been a professional
baseball player for nine years when he made the difficult
decision to leave the game to follow a higher calling—
helping kids with autism, ADHD, and other sensory
disorders. Mr. Bruback will share his experiences that led
him to develop his Miracle Belt device.
