The Deluxe Clavicle Support is a simple yet very efficient shoulder and posture corrector that is made to give support to the clavicle or collarbone while recuperating from minor injuries caused by fractures, sprains and fibromyalgia.
The entire design of this clavicle support is based on the principle of using a shoulder strap, similar to that used on backpacks. The Deluxe Clavicle Support uses a flat metal ring on its center that also functions as the main pressure point that pulls the entire chest outward by way of the shoulder straps that are easily worn through the use of Velcro straps.
Double backed stitching is used to reinforce the entire posture corrector so that it can effectively maintain the pressure points of the entire back area that is attached to the metal ring. Tailor fitted to conform to the angle of the chest and the collarbone (clavicle); the Deluxe Clavicle Support inhibits excessive shoulder blade movements to facilitate in the fast recovery of the affected area by properly aligning the clavicle and the cervical vertebrae.

Though simple as it may seem, the Deluxe Clavicle brace is the simplest solution to maintaining a correct posture while recovering from any clavicle related injury in which during this critical stage, the shoulders must remain in perfect alignment with the cervical area.
An easy to use product which will give you sufficient support without getting in the way
The importance of keeping the affected area strapped (which in this case could be any part that comprises the collarbone, the ligaments that connect it to the humerus or any muscular tissue that is either torn which is currently inflamed) is high. The polyurethane foam padding used in this posture corrector eases the pressure on the skin and the path that it binds while repelling moisture retention, giving the wearer a comfortable fit.
The Velcro straps enable the user to adjust the proper tightness on each shoulder strap. Since the entire strap is affixed permanently to the metal ring, there is no possibility of the strap to loosen out from the conjoining seams as the straps themselves have polyurethane plastic strip backings that are sewn in using a double stitched pattern all throughout its design.
The metal ring is the center point of the entire posture corrector, as it maintains the central alignment of the whole posture brace to the affected area in which it holds the shoulder strap while applying pressure on the back, giving you a straight stance.
Pros & cons:
Considering that it serves a specific purpose in stabilizing the shoulders and chest, particularly the collarbone in mind, the clavicle support brace has a pretty straightforward design; nevertheless, it does a good job in helping with inhibiting the shoulders from making excessive movements to hasten the recovery of the affected area.
The convenience of wearing it is made possible by the use of Velcro straps so the wearer can easily adjust the way the straps tighten around the shoulders.
The good news is, we couldn’t find any severe shortcomings – it does the job perfectly.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
Machine-washing the clavicle support is strongly discouraged since this posture brace has a metal part, which could eventually damage your washing machine. Hand washing is the most preferred manner in which you can clean the Deluxe Clavicle Support since it is mostly composed of synthetic fabrics which can be washed using mild detergents and soap without having to worry about drying it.
The use of lukewarm water is ideal to remove deep-seated dirt and grime that has accumulated within the straps. To ensure that the straps remain damage free from any signs of fraying, always make sure that you use the right amount of detergent and water temperature to maintain its fabric’s integrity. After washing the brace, you can just leave it out to dry since the fabrics on the straps are fast drying and can easily be worn within an hour after washing.
