This is a specialized functional brace for the lower spine. The brace is reinforced circumferentially unique inner hand loops – support straps which provide added support and aid application.

Sizing and Technical Information:
All medi supports are designed with functional every day use in mind. The carefully manufactured materials used have achieved the German quality standard award - Oko-Tex standard 100 - and are suitable for those with sensitive skin. All braces wick moisture away from their inner surface to evaporate from the outer surface and have anti-bacterial properties to reduce odour formation. Our testers found this extremely efficient even during long hard training sessions.
Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this brace is an excellent high end range product for those with Low Back Pain and is perhaps the most comfortable brace in our range for those who need to sit for long periods.
