BalanceWear Helping People who have back symptoms

The BalanceWear OW 200 helps patients with back symptoms. The OW 200 uses a combination of a lumbo sacral orthotic plus balancing capability to help those people who have both types of problems. Individuals with stooped posture due to Parkinson’s disease  stood straighter immediately and others with just back symptoms are being helped too. The compressive force of the LSO helps elongate the spine to provide stable support of the core. People post surgeries of the neck or back have also been helped when they need spinal support and help with balance and walking.

Bigger right!
