I am an old man (71 years). Following an abdominal op that went wrong, I developed an external hernia. Having tried various 'supports' I thought this weight-lifting belt might prove useful.
It could not be bettered! Donning the 'belt the other way round, I find it provides complete abdominal support. Used the way it was intended, the support it gives my arthritic lower spine is phenominal, while keeping my hernia in place.
My only regret is that I did not have this belt when I was younger! I used weights to tone my muscles for long-distance, sea canoing. But it is here, now, and available at a very reasonable cost. I can think of no product better suited to its designated purpose, and to support those elderly, sagging tummies.
I think I'll advise my surgeon to place an advert on his 'Advice Board'. In years to come we'll see young and old, healthy and infirm, wearing this product as part of their sport and every-day use.
