Back Support Belt c/w Pad

Back Support Belt c/w Pad

The purpose of the Back Support Belt is to help prevent the wearer bending at the waist when undertaking manual handling tasks. If the waist becomes the pivotal point during lifting then undue pressure is placed on the spine which may result in prolapse (slipped disc). The back support belt is designed to use the body’s own strength (intra abdominal pressure) to maintain correct alignment of the spine and to support the back during lifting or prolonged sedentary activities such as driving.

The BODYTEC BT2500 back support belt has a flexible

lumbar support pad that supports the back by working with the wearer’s stomach muscles to help keep an upright posture. As the belt helps to prevent bending at the waist, the wearer is encouraged to use correct lifting techniques when undertaking manual handling tasks.
