The first posture corrector we examined is manufactured by Toros-Group. They market it towards individuals suffering from lordosis, kyphoscoliosis, kyphosis and winged scapula.
In addition, examining their marketing materials, they describe this posture corrector as an adult and child-compatible option designed to provide medical rehabilitation in the event of surgeries or injuries to the upper lumbar section of the clavicle and spine.
As well, it's engineered to stop progressive spinal curvature as well as reducing scoliotic decompensation. This orthopedic appliance, they say, should be used three hours a day, most commonly. They advised that, initially, you should wear it for under half an hour at a time- but slowly you can begin increasing the length of time you wear it for, for example adding 20 minutes every day.
They are also careful to caution prospective buyers that you shouldn't wear this as you sleep. Besides just recovering from injuries or surgeries, some physical rehabilitation specialists also say it can provide pain relief from strenuous activity- helping with muscle spasms, strains, and sprains. Over time, it is s designed to keep you from slouching and developing chronic pain conditions associated with bad posture.
- Buyers say that you can disguise it beneath a sweatshirt, so if you are wearing it underneath a T-shirt it is pretty noticeable.
- Buyers say they purchased it to counteract the effects of scoliosis in conjunction with stretching exercises as indicated by physical therapists.
- One user says that he is satisfied with it- complimenting the quality support and how it keeps him from hunching, though he does say it binds a little bit too tightly across his stomach area.
- Another reviewer who suffers from a bad back tells us that it feels like a weight belt and helps maintain a more straightened and erect posture as he walks.
- Another elderly buyer purchased the back brace and tells us it is one of the more comfortable options he has used.
- What we've seen is that buyer experience with these posture correctors is incredibly subjective- it will depend on what you are trying to accomplish and the fit of the particular corrector you end up purchasing.
The second posture support brace we examined is provided by ComfyMed. It's designed to help improve poor posture and shoulder alignment, alleviating upper back pain- available for both male and female users.
The marketing materials advertise it as a durable, washable FDA-approved option that is engineered to feel soft while providing strong support. As well, they list out a variety of different conditions it can help treat including hunchback, osteoporosis pain, loose ligaments, collarbone pain, spine misalignments and sports injuries. O
- ne reviewer says that, initially, it was uncomfortable, but as he grew used to wearing it and tinkering with its different adjustments, he found he can wear it for longer stretches of time.
- The primary complaint, it seems, is that the straps can painfully chafe your underarms- this doesn't affect everyone and really boils down to your particular physical dimensions.
The third adjustable posture corrector we examined is provided by Voelux. This one is interesting because it provides an option for teenagers. Examining their product description, it's marketed as a means of reducing back and neck pain associated with shoulder slumps while sitting in office chairs. They describe it as a means of re-educating your back muscles to help you develop improve posture that decreases spinal pain and strain.
- One reviewer with a 9-to-5 office job tells us that after a decade of working in a cubicle his upper back has become incredibly painful from extended sitting.
- Because this device trains his upper back to maintain proper posture it has decreased his back pain as well as overall improving the quality of his day-to-day posture.
The fourth option that we examined is the Vive posture corrector- it's designed for men and women, helping to promote proper neck and head alignment as well as addressing stooped and poor posture.
- One reviewer tells us that the way it works in his instance is that if your shoulders roll forward the posture corrector makes it feel uncomfortable, conditioning you to re-orient your shoulders to a better alignment.
- Other buyers say but that their posture has been slumped for such a long time they don't even realize it- this posture corrector helps to retrain their bodies, alerting them to bad posture so that they can consciously fix it over time and maintain it more naturally.
The last option we examined is the Posturific. This particular orthopedic device can be worn around the back or over the shoulder- this provides greater flexibility in terms of how it is employed.
- One buyer tells us that her office job was causing her back pain, which she felt also resulted in chronic migraines.
- Besides experiencing near immediate pain relief, over time she tells us that her posture is being retrained so that she doesn't slouch as much or experience the painful tension headaches that were plaguing her work today.
- While overall she was satisfied she does say every so often and she'll need to readjust it so that it's in the best position.
- Other computer users tell us that over time it's completely changed how they sit at their workstation- concealed easily beneath their clothes, though somewhat evident if you're wearing just a T-shirt.
