Useful for mild backache but not good support
on 6 May 2013
I suffered a very bad injury and have used braces of many kinds over the years. This is the latest, supposedly heavy duty. I would describe it's support abilities from light to medium. I am average build, not overweight. The stays are next to non- existant as they are not stiff and bend with the back. The elastication is fine at the moment but I seriously doubt that it will be as good after 3 months of use. I suspect it will effectively stretch and lose elasticity like a pair of socks or knee bandage or similar. I would call this a reasonable short term solution only. A more permanent, long term item would need straps in several places, rely less on elastication and the stays at the spine would be both longer and stiffer. Ultimately expensive for what it is.
