Back and Clavicle Supports
The health benefits that come from good posture are endless, which is why people have taken interest in correcting their own. Not only do you look better when you are holding yourself with better posture, but you have the potential to relieve your back pain, migraines, create more oxygen flow throughout your body, and so much more. Braces are a great way to fix your posture because if worn correctly, they can change your muscle memory without interfering with your daily routine, helping your spine to straighten over time.
What’s interesting about posture braces is that they evolved from braces designed for treating clavicle fractures and breaks. When treating a clavicle injury, you want to stabilize your collarbone, so a brace was designed that wraps around your upper back.
The clavicle or collarbone is a long bone that serves as a strut between the shoulder blade and the sternum or breastbone. There are two clavicles, one on the left and one on the right. The clavicle is the only long bone in the body that lies horizontally. Together with the shoulder blade it makes up the shoulder girdle.
Our Clavicle Support is ideal for clavicle fractures and postural problems. It contains fully padded foam straps for maximum patient comfort. Hook and loop closure allows for easy adjustment while movable D-rings lead to optimal patient fit.
While the spine can maintain a natural curvature without lower back support provided by the seatback, the natural tendency for most people when sitting for a long period is to slouch forward. This slouching posture pushes the lower back out, so that the natural inward curve goes in the opposite direction – outward toward the chair – straining the structures in the lower back.
Your clients’ doctor may prescribe a back brace for wearing after a spinal injury or surgery as it will limits the movement of the lumbar (lower) spine. Moving after surgery can delay healing in fractures or in post-operative fusions.
Back Support provides support and soft correction in everyday life and in sports. It stimulates blood supply to the back, thereby activating the body’s self-repair and improving the body’s self-recognition. An anatomically based pad (a pressure pad) in our back girdle and back orthosis provides additional massage to specific points on the back and thereby enhances the relief of pain. Activate muscle tissue, protect your back with our back straps and back orthosis to support back activity.
Our back support brace can actively limit the motion of the spine so it can enhance the healing process for bone in both conditions, and will also usually decrease the patient’s low back pain and discomfort. Our medical braces are made from a variety of materials such as elastic cotton/nylon, blending, foam rubber, and molded plastic.

Maintaining Back Support in an Office Chair
When sitting in an office chair, an effective lumbar back support should be flush against the small of the back. Our portable lumbar back supports are shaped specifically and when placed correctly, a lumbar back support should provide the following benefits:
Ears, shoulders, and pelvis (hips) are kept in alignment
Natural inward curvature of the lower spine is maintained
It is important that the back be flush, because this is what provides the support for the lower back. Overall, the lumbar back support should keep the spine in a very natural position. It should not overly accentuate the inward curve, nor should it feel unsupported.
