I don't review many things unless I'm all for it or against it. So here is my 5 star review: As soon as I put this on (straight out of the box bc I was so excited), I had instant relief in my lower back and tension in my upper back/shoulder area. Look no further for any type of back/posture correction gadget...this is it!!!!! I've also looked and tried many different options (exercise ball, other back correction/strappy gadgets, ergonomic chairs etc) this is the most instantly satisfying one. I can feel the difference in my body's overall happiness. I've also had intense back pain for the last two months and this has been the only thing to bring me relief...and instantaneously!
If I could give this product ten stars, I would. Bottom line: IT WORKS. I also purchased the Stability Ace Shoulder/Clavicle brace for upper back posture. I started with this product alone. Not impossible to figure out, but if you can read this you can understand the instructions. Once figured out it is a cinch to get in and out of. After loosening the tension straps, I simply step out of it and it is ready to step into the next time, place the back support, tighten, and in ten seconds you are ready to go again. CAVEAT TO THOSE INCLINED TO CORRECT YEARS OF BAD POSTURE IN THE FIRST 24 HOURS OF OWNERSHIP. USE THE PRODUCT AS SPECIFIED AND THAT INCLUDES THE BREAK-IN PERIOD. These people know what they are doing. Having acquainted myself with this product, I then put on the Stability/Ace Upper Back Posture Corrector Brace. For me this product completed the posture correction needed. Now when I sit down for my posture correction time, I slip into both and then enjoy sitting in a straight-back chair. The relief is instantaneous. For the first time in decades I enjoyed a spine treatment/correction that no amount of physical therapy or exercises have been able to accomplish. BUT, couple the use of these with a regular exercise/walking program. I am a 64 y/o white male with an aggressive onset of osteoporosis. I have coupled the use of these with Qi Gung (gobs of different spellings--takeoff on Tai Chi but is better for a person with osteoporosis). My Qi Gung guru is also a physical therapist. I showed these to her and how they worked. She was impressed with the results I have been experiencing.
I'm 64 with a bad back...mild scoliosis. This thing is fantastic. I use it about 15 minutes a day, when my back is acting up and it brings relief, plus aligns the back as it forces you into good posture. The good posture lasts for awhile after taking it off too. It does put some pressure on your knees. I had both knees replaced 5 years ago, so only have minimal discomfort briefly when I get up. Not a problem
Wow! I've been suffering from s botched back surgery and additional stenosis along my back, I've tried exercise balls, straight chairs, lumbar support, name it I've wasted money and time on it - until this. If you have a bad back and/or poor posture then get this. This item is quality right out of the box, very sturdy and well made, impressive and convenient all in one case and strap pulls your lower back and knees up naturally straightening your spine. This is something you'd expect to find at a doctors office and with a price tag of $$$$.
This is an incredible product which makes one realize how the body was previously holding tension all over when sitting, and realize how to let go of all that tension in a way that keeps the back perfectly aligned and comfortable. Because it removes all tension from a sitting position, it makes one able to focus more on work (for example if work involves much sitting at a computer). It also is ideal for closed eyes sitting such as meditation, contemplation, prayer or Reiki, etc.. The letting go of all muscle tension is a similar experience to sensory deprivation float therapy, yet without the need for a water tank. All you need is you, the Perfect Posture Pro and a chair!
