Back braces are medical devices designed to support and limit the motion of the spine in order to provide rehabilitative healing for a range of postoperative and trauma issues. It can also help to improve posture and limit pain so that the user can enjoy a more comfortable daily experience.
Custom back braces are specifically engineered to conform to a wearer’s body, giving them the optimal amount of support and relief that only a perfectly-tailored device can provide.
Benefits of HealthMax Custom Back Braces
There are two common types of back braces:
Rigid back braces. These form-fitting braces made of hard plastic materials are custom molded and designed to limit spinal motion by up to 50%. These types of braces are most often used to support the back after suffering a fracture or after fusion surgery.
While they are generally less comfortable than elastic types of braces, they provide strong support when needed the most.
Elastic back braces. These types of braces limit lumbar motion and generally have two functions: to provide support after fusion surgery, and for proactive support to prevent injury to the back from repetitive or heavy lifting.
