Outline

Our newly developed trunk brace called Trunk Solution (TS) can reduce the low back load of people with low back pain and activate abdominal muscles. In addition, the brace is available to enhance beautiful posture. Conventional trunk braces can immobilize the trunk and the pelvis. Therefore they decrease low back load. However, long term use leads to muscular weakness that is essential for postural stability. TS does not immobilize upper body but it can provide resistive force on the chest to increase abdominal muscles that improves body posture and can decrease the low back load.
