The design of this medical posture corrector was designed to target the most common area in the lower part of the thoracic region, where the bone density of the spine is considerably thinner than that on the lower lumbar region.
Kyphosis usually starts in the central and upper back area, and it is where that this medical posture corrector exerts all the pressure, slowing down and eventually stopping the thoracic region from further hunching outward.
It is also very suitable for aiding in stabilizing the entire spinal column, along with the clavicle (collarbone) with its very extensive shoulder and rib cage straps that apply huge amounts of pressure in those particular areas.
The posture correction brace can effectively support the entire weight of the entire torso, relieving the weight that it incurs on the upper and lower back which makes it very ideal for people who are suffering from extensive back pains from various injuries and medical conditions that require the back to be tightly secured.
- Sizes: small, medium, large
- Materials include Nylon, Ryon and Spandex
The Neo G correction brace is made from a combination of synthetic fabrics, most notably the strap design which goes around the lumbar area, lower back and the thoracic region.
Great support and pressure given, with the intensity adjustable for your needs
The straps of this medical posture corrector are designed for extra coverage of the affected muscles in which substantial compression pressure is needed to secure the upper back. There are two main straps that go all the way around the shoulders and wrap around the thoracic region of the back. After passing this area, the straps go around the lower part of the chest, covering the rib cage as it finally comes to the front where secured by its Velcro straps.
The entire process applies substantial pressure for each particular area the straps go through, giving the wearer a very tight pressure point on the upper back, inhibiting the back to bend outward. The area covering the shoulder areas has padding to reduce the pressure that the straps incur on it. The entire fabric material used on the brace was designed so that air can fully circulate within the material, allowing the wearer’s skin to breathe.
The correction clavicle brace uses the same material used on bungee cords which assures you that it will never loosen out and become baggy, regardless of how often you wear it. This medical posture corrector can easily apply the pressure needed to straighten out the back area, particularly if you are dealing with Kyphosis. Since Kyphosis is a progressive spinal condition, the application of the right amount of pressure to the back is the key to reducing the deformity of the thoracic area.
A thorough understanding on the part of the wearer to comply with having to wear it tighter than expected requires compromising the comfortability of how you would wear the Neo G posture brace.
Not the most comfortable medical posture corrector that anyone can wear. But since having a medical condition such as Kyphosis needs attention to reverse the condition, compromises have to be made for the sake of curing it.
It is bulky in all aspects of its appearance, and it is nothing short of wearing a backpack as its padded elastic straps look similar to those used in backpacks and it will be very hard to hide this from plain sight, even under clothing.
It’s not a bad price since you need the largest amount of pressure that the straps of this medical posture corrector can offer. There is nothing pretty looking about how medical posture braces look since the most important aspect of what it can offer is the therapeutic value that it gives in relieving your back condition.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
Never wash this using warm water that has a temperature of more than 30 degrees since it will damage the elastic straps. For this type of medical posture corrector, you can conveniently place it in a washer without any worries of damaging the fabrics since the posture correction brace is mostly made from elastic Nylon materials that are highly resilient to fraying. Use a mild detergent and washing soap and rinse well to rid any residue. After that, you can just hang it out to dry.
Many office desk workers have the hunchback problem (Thoracic Kyphosis) and next to wearing a good posture brace you can do some exercises as well. Watch the following youtube movie and do those exercises regularly.
