Patients are often prescribed warm and form back braces and do not know where to get them. Warm and Form back braces require the moldable insert within the brace to be “warmed” and then molded (formed) to the lower back. These moldable panels require a heat gun or a hydroculator to shape the insert. Patients can burn themselves and/or ruin the insert if they don’t know what they are doing.
Healthcare providers are reluctant to provide warm and form back braces because insurance does not cover the cost of these back braces. So patients find themselves in a bind. They have a prescription for a “warm and form” and can’t find anyone to fit them with the lumbar support. Some patients buy the braces on-line. When the braces arrive patients realize they don’t know how to mold the brace to their spine.
So here is a solution. Order a mechanical advantage pulley system back brace (pictured above). These back braces are more comfortable, less expensive, and just as effective. “Warm and Form braces” are old technology – 25 years old. The pulley system braces are new technology. They accomplish everything a warm and form does and more. Patients do not have to heat anything or mold anything. Just pull the strap and the brace will automatically conform to each person’s unique anatomy.
