The Physio Comfort Back Brace is designed to give good support for the back with additional lumbar support.
The material is soft against the skin and helps prevent pinching of the skin when the elastic brace is secured. Inside the Back Brace is foam that is permanently sewn in position. This is to prevent the Back Brace from moving and digging into the body.
Ensure the elastic Back Brace straps are loose and put the Brace on with the middle of the belt centred over the spine at the affected area. Hold the two central pieces of elastic and pull them forward simultaneously and secure them with the Hook & Loop Tape section to the main belt. Pulling loops are sewn in position to help people pull with their thumbs if they cannot grip the elastic.
Next, hold the two double elastic straps and once again, pull them forward simultaneously, to be secured on top of the central elastic. In some cases the elastic straps may be secured above or below the middle of the back brace. This would depend on individual problems and consultation with your Therapist is recommended. Fasten all Hook & Loop Tape pieces before washing.
