Mastering the Application of Your Back Brace

After understanding the indications for using the Exos Form II 626, it's crucial to know how to properly wear it. Correct application ensures maximum effectiveness and comfort. This post provides a step-by-step guide to putting on the Exos Form II 626 back brace.

Step-by-Step Guide to Wearing the Exos Form II 626

  1. Prepare the Brace: Before putting it on, loosen the straps and open the brace fully. This preparation makes it easier to wrap around your body.

  2. Position the Brace: Hold the brace with both hands, ensuring the BOA® dials are facing outwards. Wrap the brace around your lower back, positioning it so that the bottom edge aligns with the top of your buttocks.

  3. Secure the Front Closure: Bring the ends of the brace to the front of your body. Fasten the front closure securely but comfortably around your waist. The brace should feel snug but not overly tight.

  4. Adjust the BOA® Fit System: Turn the BOA® dials to tighten the brace. This system allows for microadjustments, so you can fine-tune the fit to your comfort level. The goal is to achieve firm support without restricting movement or causing discomfort.

  5. Check for Comfort and Support: Move around a bit to ensure the brace feels comfortable and provides adequate support. It should not pinch or restrict your breathing. Adjust the straps or dials as needed.

  6. Wearing Under or Over Clothing: The Exos Form II 626 can be worn either directly against the skin or over a thin layer of clothing, depending on your preference. Ensure that the brace remains in the correct position regardless of how you choose to wear it.

Tips for Comfort and Effectiveness

  • Wear it Right: Ensure the brace is not too high or too low on your back. The proper positioning is crucial for effectiveness.
  • Adjust as Needed: Your body may change throughout the day (e.g., after eating), so feel free to adjust the tightness as needed.
  • Listen to Your Body: If you experience any pain, numbness, or discomfort, adjust the brace or consult with a healthcare professional.
