The design of the Accupressure Back Support incorporates new knowledge of how the body reacts to sudden loading caused by unexpected events (accidents). One study by the Iowa Spine Research Center at The University of Iowa has shown that during such events, back muscles can over-contract by as much as 70%. This over-contraction is often the hazard that triggers back injury. The Accupressure back support reduces this excess exertion by up to 46%! The Iowa studies also document less fatigue in subjects wearing the Accupressure.

Furthermore, a study by the National Institutes for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that in subjects correctly wearing elastic back supports, planned lifts were performed more slowly (and safely), the lower back was stiffened while lifting, and flexion of hips and knees increased when lifting.

Features:
  • High-density woven elastic cinch straps - provide consistent superior performance over long-term use
  • Triple Lock cinch strap
  • Two-way stretch power knit primary belt
  • Quick-release shoulder straps - provides flexibility and safety for wearers
