This Posture Control Support is designed to correct poor posture by gently pulling the shoulders back and holding them in the proper position. Elastic side panels provide support compression to stabilize the abdominal and lumbar regions for improved posture and alignment. Two bendable aluminum stays can be removed and shaped to contour the back. Stays also provide additional support and help prevent slouching. Elastic straps are soft and comfortable to prevent pinching of the skin, and the criss-cross design in the back allows for greater adjustability. It helps to improve poor posture and relieve pain caused by arthritis. Can also minimize a “stooped” posture often associated with mild osteoporosis. Latex free.
