Rigid back brace have been around for 60+ years and most people have put one on at one time or another. A typical back brace uses elastic to tighten around the waist and hips to create compression and stabilize the core, which in many cases can provide short term relief for lower back pain.
How does the BaxMAX reduce pain for people suffering with various conditions of the spine? Watch this video to learn how.
A single pull back brace (like the BaxMAX) has only one pull that is connected to both sides of the brace and includes a series of “pulleys” to tighten the brace. This is called a compound pulley which gives you leverage when you are tightening the brace. For example, the BaxMAX has a 5:1 compound pulley, meaning that for every 5 inches you move the pull, the brace only moves 1 inch. The compound pulley effect enables you to get the brace tighter and provide more support than a multi-pull brace. In the case of the BaxMAX, it provides 5 times the amount of support. Also, thanks to the one-pull system, the BaxMAX can be loosened almost instantly which makes it quick and easy to release the support without taking off the brace. Then re-tightening is just and quick and easy. Our recommendation is to loosen the BaxMAX once per hour for 5-10 minutes, which ultimately addresses the muscle atrophy issue.
