This posture corrector prevents slouching and provides upper back pain relief. It retracts shoulders bilaterally and provides support to the clavicle and shoulders. Goes on like a vest and adjusts in the front. It has a low-profile design that is not restrictive and easily concealed under clothing.
Putting the brace on:
Before putting the brace on, remove the small Velcro straps on each side of the brace and reattach so that the straps are loose
Undo the main Velcro strap so that the brace is open
Put your arms through the arm holes and pull the brace on so that it is resting on your shoulders
Grip both of the main straps that go around your ribs and pull them towards your centre, attaching the Velcro in the middle so that the brace feels snug and it’s comfortable to breathe.
Detach the outer Velcro straps and pull them tight, attaching them towards the centre of the brace so that your shoulders are retracted to the desired position.
Taking the brace off:
Detach the outer Velcro straps and reattach so the straps feel loose and your shoulders are sitting in their natural position.
Detach the main Velcro straps so the brace is open.
Slide your arms out through the arm holes
Reattach the main Velcro straps so they don’t stick to the brace or anything else while not in use.
Careful washing will prolong the life of the brace. Remove all stays before washing. Hand wash with a non-detergent washing solution, and air dry (away from the sun and heating vents). Do not put the brace in the washing machine or dryer.
