For over three years now, swimmers have struggled to reach the times set during the era of the Supersuit. Now Blucore is doing something about it, with the release of the Corsuit.
The Corsuit is worn around the waist like a belt, and gives swimmers tactile feedback on their body position and spinal alignment as they swim. It is designed to encourage the swimmer to engage their own core muscles, rather than artificially supporting them like a bodysuit would. This in turn encourages strength, not dependence. The Corsuit can be used for all strokes, and can even be applied to swimming-specific cross training.
The Corsuit was developed at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, home to many of Australia’s current and former swimming greats. Using these incredible local resources, the Corsuit was painstakingly designed by swimmers, for swimmers.
The Corsuit is already in 21 countries, with dozens of world-class programs and Olympians utilising it as a part of their day-to-day training.

Christian Sprenger (World Champion): “The Corsuit helps me flatten my angle of attack in breaststroke, which helps me maintain momentum. There’s nothing like it out there.”
Stephan Widmer (Multi-Olympic Champion coach): “The Corsuit is an advanced teaching tool that guides my swimmers towards the most efficient streamlined position: the flat back position. I use this tool in the pool and the gym to enhance their swimming-specific posture in a variety of conditions, with athletes of all levels.”
Blucore is dedicated to producing intelligent products for the intelligent swimmer. An Australian-based company, Blucore has recently launched its flagship product, the Corsuit.
The Corsuit is the result of over four years of research and development at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, and is designed to help swimmers improve their body position and posture in the water.
Blucore believes that swimming is ripe for innovation, and more importantly, it deserves innovation.
Swimmers are an intelligent breed, and this intelligence is something that should be both appreciated and challenged. Swimming requires not only physical strength, but also a sharp mind and keen proprioceptive skills. Swimmers work hard, so we’re working hard to develop new products to help them grow in speed, strength, endurance and intelligence.
