Back Support Brace for Women
The Cybertech/Ottobock MAC Low Profile Back Brace is a similar back support to the original MAC corset back brace, but with a greater range of usability and mobility for patients. It features a smaller, low profile style that allows users to be more mobile while maintaining the same stabilization. This low profile brace is less bulky and contours to a smaller framed or petite individual, such as a woman. The corset back brace measures 8.5” in the back and contours to 6” in the front of the brace.
This brace not only fits smaller individuals, but plus size individuals as well. The support corset goes up to sizes XL and 2XL, fitting waist circumferences up to 50” so finding your size will not be an issue.
It is ultimately designed for back pain as it comfortably curves to the body. The MAC (mechanical advantage corset) features a pulley system that allows you to easily adjust the brace with the pull of one hand in a matter of seconds. This helps to provide compression to the abdominal and lower back region. The handle attaches to a Velcro strip in the front, which minimizes any strain from twisting or turning of the body.
This back brace for lower back pain provides the power, comfort, control, and support that the original brace has in a lightweight and active design. Indicated to treat mild back sprains and strains, arthritis of the back, post-surgery protection, and other lower back injuries.
If you are needing a more rigid back brace that can treat more serious injuries, such as bulging or herniated discs, sciatica, spondylolisthesis, or compression fractures, take a look at the MAC plus back brace. This back brace features a tall rigid back panel that helps to support the lower back. Since it includes this back panel it also can be reimbursed for insurance purposes using the insurance L code L0630.
