[well]If you experience low back pain or want to help prevent injury to your lower back, you’re going to love the MEDiBrace. Developed by doctors and scientists, the MEDiBrace is medically proven to provide beneficial pain relief for a range of lower back problems. We’ve re-designed it and made it stronger and more lightweight (more info below…)[/well]
Do you suffer from lower back pain?
The MEDiBrace offers relief through supporting the lower lumbar region of the body helping to prevent the sufferer from adopting a posture which further aggravates the nerve receptors that induce pain. No pressure on the sensitive areas means active pain relief for you.
Perhaps you don’t suffer from low back pain yet, but are concerned about the prospect of it from your current lifestyle activities? The MEDiBrace is able to help prevent the lower back from becoming injured due to poor posture during exercise; Whether at the gym, or playing golf, taking fitness classes or many other sports activities where you are bending or twisting your back. It works whilst you are working out allowing you to enjoy your active lifestyle.
Made of ultra-light Neoprene material.
Unlike other products on the market, the MEDiBrace is comfortable and lightweight. What you will feel is firm support in your lower back region. Nor is it particularly restrictive. The Neoprene material is ultra-light without compromising on support. The double elasticated Velcro straps provide adjustable comfort and support.
There are three steps to fitting and securing the MEDiBrace around your waist. After the first velcro band is secure, the double elasticated straps are stretched around and onto the band which is one of the secrets to the effectiveness of this device. The brace comes with a colour instruction leaflet on how to perform this simple procedure.
It’s also attractive and fashionable. Available in a range of colours and sizes (including XXXL size new for 2017), the sleek and lightweight design of the MEDiBrace makes it an eye-catching fashion item that will have other gym users asking where they could get one! And if you’d rather keep it a secret, the slim-fit hides it discreetly under clothing!
Medical grade device.
The MEDiBrace has been scientifically and medically proven to help provide beneficial pain relief for a range of lower back problems through its unique design. Developed in laboratories, the MEDiBrace has undergone rigorous testing and controls under strict conditions.
Philip Edwards –
I have suffered from chronic lower back pain for some years. The pain comes and goes, but can come on through the simplest of movements.
I have had a back support (from the NHS), but this eventually wore out.
Earlier this year I started looking around for another back support which would be lighter than the NHS one, and a little larger (as I’d put a little weight on over the years). I read all the write ups and eventually chose to give the “Medibrace” a try. At nearly £30.00 (with P+P) it is one of the more expensive back supports, but it had many excellent reviews so I bought one (XL size for my 36″ waist). It arrived in less than a week. Well packaged, and with an instruction leaflet. It felt very light and looked to be well made.
I tried it on immediately. It was very easy to put on, and it has a “double pull” action. You place the belt around your waist (low down) and pull – but not too much – and then press the wide “velcro” belt together. The support felt very comfortable at this stage. You then grip the two extra belts which are hanging down at the back, pull the very stretchy belts around towards the front of your body and when you feel the belt pulled tight around your body you press the “velcro” belts together.
The belt again felt very comfortable and gave me the immediate feeling that my back was being supported firmly – but not too much. I tried pulling the stretchy belts tighter, then slacker, but the first position was the most comfortable. I carried out a days work fitting and plumbing in a new toilet in our house, and at the end of the day my back felt fine. I could feel the belt supporting me all the time I was wearing it.
When I took it off, my skin was a bit “sweaty” – but no more so than when I wore the NHS belt. I now wear the belt whenever I’m going to do any work requiring a lot of bending, stretching and lifting. In the two weeks I’ve had the belt, I can only praise the design, quality and effectiveness of the support it gives. Every time I wear the Medibrace support, it not only gives me physical support, but also gives me confidence to tackle the simple tasks of everyday life, which without a back support, I would have approached with some trepidation.
I am very pleased with this product and would recommend this support to anyone who suffers backache. Philip Edwards. (aged 64) North Wales UK. (I would like to add that my review is an honest appraisal, and I was not given any inducements or reductions in price from the company.

Ok so I slipped and fell hurt my back and ribs almost two weeks ago. I’m a keen golfer and had a weekend away organised. I was determined to play despite being in pain so decided to try this support. Firstly it arrived the next day…perfect. Secondly it’s very easy to put on and exceptionally comfortable to wear. It really does give great support. I was struggling to get up and down from a sitting position and even turning in bed was agony. This support is comfortable enough to wear in bed though. Thirdly I wore it during two consecutive golf rounds over two days and honestly couldn’t have managed without it. I’d highly recommend this support and it gets the full five stars from me.
Le bonheur retrouvé ! Ceinture magique ! Quand cela fait 1 mois et demi qu’on reste allongée, bien que cela soit déconseillé, parce qu’une sciatique vous paralyse de douleur, quelle sensation j’ai ressentie dès les 1ères secondes après l’avoir accrochée !!!
J’ai hésité longtemps avant d’acheter ce modèle car j’avais acheté lors de sciatiques précédentes un modèle qui se gonfle mais qui remontait tout le temps une fois posée et ne remplissait plus son rôle.
Celles qui sont comme on en voit en pharmacie sont insupportables pour les personnes pas très grosses comme je le suis, les baleines rentrent dans le dos, on a l’impression de porter un corset, c’est une torture.
La plupart des ceintures ne sont pas assez bien dimensionnées pour les personnes petites et pas très grosses. Elles ne serrent pas assez, remontent, ne remplissent pas leurs rôles.
Mais là, c’est magique de souffrir le martyre, d’accrocher cette ceinture et instantanément de ne plus ressentir de douleur !
Je pouvais enfin remarcher, remonter et descendre mon escalier avec mes 2 pieds au lieu de le faire marche par marche comme un gosse.
Je peux me re-promener avec mon chien.
Je peux aller étendre mon linge dans le jardin et lever mes bras pour le suspendre, ce qui est impossible sans ceinture.
Bon, j’avoue que voyant mon corps disponible, je me suis sentie capable de remonter sur mon escabeau pour régler un problème électrique au plafond. Un changement d’ampoule aurait été parfait mais il fallait que je démonte et remonte une boite d’encastrement, passent les fils… bon bref, on n’est pas sur un site de bricolage. Restée perchée 30 bonnes minutes en descendant et remontant parce que les outils ça tombe, je crois que j’ai exagéré et même avec la ceinture, j’ai ressenti une petite douleur…
Pour sciatique et port de ceinture de soutien lombaire, mieux vaut tricot que bricolage.
J’ai même pensé annuler mon RV du 27/06 pour ma 6ème infiltration en 1 an tellement la douleur avait disparu.
Mais non…. Je l’enlève la nuit car elle fait transpirer et elle fait un peu mal au ventre, serrée comme je le fais.
Et le matin, si je tarde à la mettre, il ne faut pas longtemps avant que la torture me revienne…
Donc, ce sera infiltration et maintenant dès que je me lancerai dans mes travaux de bricolage, de déco, de jardinage, je porterai la ceinture en prévention.
Et pour répondre à l’angoisse que j’avais de la sentir remonter tout le temps, avec ce modèle c’est impeccable elle ne bouge pas.
Je la redescends 1 à 2 fois sur le bassin dans la journée pour la remettre en place et m’aérer car ça donne chaud, c’est le seul inconvénient.
MERCI à la MARQUE d’avoir fabriqué ce bonheur, à AMAZON de la vendre et A TOUS LES ACHETEURS PRECEDENTS qui ont gentiment répondu à mes questions et prodigué leurs conseils.
C’est long comme avis mais pour ceux qui souffrent, ils doivent savoir.
Physio and Personal Trainer approved
The Velcro is strong and durable, as is the brace itself. It holds well and is comfortable for long term use.
Best of all my partner can work and live normally even when her back is very bad.
Our physio agreed that the brand and choice was excellent which is always very reassuring. For the price you can’t go wrong.
Alba Zeus –
Suffered a bout of sciatica after a bike ride recently and could barely stand up or straighten my back. Bought this for next day delivery and it has been a god send. I have worn it through 12 hours sitting/walking/lounging at whilst you feel the support is there you hardly notice this around your lower back. Great product
Come fascia c’è nulla da dire, è molto resiste, fascia bene la schiena e con le bacchette rigide dietro sostiene bene . . . unico neo . . . il materiale dopo diversi lavaggi e star fuori all’aria “puzza” di petrolio, talmente tanto da impregnare anche gli indumenti sopra, non si può sopportare . . . secondo me dovete provvedere a questo inconveniente.
Mrs. Frances A. Waldron –
Arrived quickly so no waiting.
I can no longer walk far or stay on my feet for prolonged periods like I used to be able to do. I’ve had back trouble for nearly 20 years and obviously it’s deteriorating year on year as I age.
The belt provides reasonably good support for those times when I am on my feet for longer than usual, like shopping expeditions. It helps reduce the severity of the back pain to some degree, but, of course, is not a medicine so can’t remove all of it.
I really bought it to take with me on vacation in March 2019 when I am going to be doing more walking than normal like for sightseeing and shopping, and I have a feeling I won’t be able to do without it.
Some reviewers have mentioned itching and sweating under the belt so I wear an under vest that helps prevent this.
I received this product yesterday and couldn’t wait to try it.
I have Spinal Stenosis and I was really feeling the pain ( I don’t take pain relief ) as I know they’re addictive.
I was going home to use a hot water bottle.
However, with the arrival of the Belt – on it went.
Immediately I felt relief and the pain turned into a throb – which was manageable –
The belt I bought is 3xl or the largest size, so comfortable and the warmth from it was amazing.
Normally I find it really difficult to get off the settee once I’m on it to my amazement it was easier.
I kept the belt on until 7pm as I was getting too hot (not using central heating) from the belt
and when I took it off I felt the support leave me.
Wonder of wonders the pain did not return and to-day, Tuesday ,has not returned.
I have not used the belt today, though I still have a slight twinge.
I am quite excited about this as I am going away end of January.
I, normally, have to use a shopping trolley to help me walk around Waitrose, which is a massive store here in Guernsey so I was dreading going away with the walking I will have to do and NO SUPPORT – NOT ANYMORE-
The belt is Black and I chose the Green colour straps. The depth of the belt is 8 1/2″ or 22.5cms tapering at the ends- it is quite comfortable to wear with enough give, but don’t pull it tight, it supports just the same. There are stays in the green vertical bands 2 large ones on either side with 3 shorter ones. 1 at each end and 1 in the middle, Again these are not intrusive and are very comfortable. Neither do they stick in to the ribcage.
I wore it over a thin camisole with pants over the top.
Just as an aside there is no need to remove it to go to the loo-it stays firmly in place.
It is as big as it looks and you will need a jumper and Simon Cowell pants to hide it, but for the relief you get I would say “Go For it”.

Has helped to support my back during a sciatica attack. Purchased from professorz.com, saved some money buying from Amazon. Got here quicker than Amazon if you can believe that!

A real godsend for those with long term back pain. This is one of two back support straps available on Amazon which claims to be “Medical Grade”, I’m not quite sure what that means but from my point of view as a user I can say.
This back support is cut from a single piece of neoprene and the two elastic tensioners are made from single peices of elasticated fabric. The Velcro fastenings appear to be of a good grade with full depth sturdy hook panels.
Two of the other back braces I have used have had Velcro which has worn out over a few months this one dos not cut corners by using the cheaper grades of Velcro. There are 4 stiffening panels two on each side at the back to help keep your spine in alignment. The support also looks quite good and feels comfortable to wear, I think the, sizing is about right
I have a 40 inch waist ans the XL size which spans 37 to 43 inches is a good fit. I also have a similar belt branded Clever which has only 4 size bands to the 6 offered by the Medibrace. They are of similar quality but the extra sizing bands give this one the edge.
As a sufferer of long-term back pain, I am happy to say that although this belt does not eliminate the pain it reduces it and also make it possible for me to function for longer.
Stu Green –
Ruptured a disk 15 years ago and I suffer from chronic sciatica.
If I’m going to be doing ANYTHING that could trigger an episode, like mowing the lawn, digging a hole, or working on the engine of my car (that’s a massive trigger, leaning over for long periods), I’ll use this. I won’t always put it on right away, as this “kind of” does the job of your core muscles.
I’ve been working on my core gradually which is allowing me to use this less and less. Sometimes I go months without wearing it, but then end up doing something silly like lifting a massive bag of trash into the boot of the car or picking up one of the kids wrong and the old electric-shock triggers in my lumbar signifying that I’ve overdone it and my sciatica is going to flare up, at which point I get this from the drawer and use it for support to stop further aggravating the injury. My Sciatica either doesn’t come or is short lived!
I used to use a weight lifting belt but this is far superior, and second only to strong support muscles in your back and stomach.
Lifting with your knees is also important, but mine are shot, so I kind of lean on things to bend over.
I’d be totally freaked out if I lost this… I should probably go ahead and buy a second one. A black one would be nice… the green is a bit garish. Sorry, I’m rambling.

I bought this item from Amazon on January 6, 2021 after reviewing many backbraces for my spinal stenosis. The rubber in this brace and the fabric has deteriorated. I was to late to return it, because it did it start to come apart till after. I tried to text it one of your representatives but they say they don’t know about the item and what to help me buy something or your website. I can send pictures to show the deterioration. All I want is it to be replaced.
Kris Koster –
Hello – We offer 30-day no-quibble return on all of our products. Beyond this period is subject to case-by-case basis. After a period of three months of regular, daily use, you would expect a product made of fabric that is stretched and pulled daily, to deteriorate over time which then needs to be replaced with a new one. At £22.95 including free delivery, it is an relatively inexpensive product to replace. That it provides pain relief for a period of three months before you see signs of wear and tear would be normal in our view. Also we cannot find your order under this name and see no record of you attempting to contact us. That said, please do contact our team by email or phone – firstname.lastname@example.org telling us what your order number was and we will see what we can do for you. Thank you for your feedback. Good or bad, is always gratefully received.
Very happy with the purchase. Its made from god durable material and is quite comfortable to wear.
Does give relief when worn for a few hours or while doing chores. I do recommend it if you have a back ache.
B. SIMPSON –
For me it worked wonders. 18 months ago I had severe back pain. I was diagnosed as having a fractured spine and osteoporosis. The severe pain went but I was left with a severe constant lower back ache. In order to try to cut down on pain killers I asked my Doctor about back braces. She said that they work very well for some but others do not get any benefit at all. I bought one of these and it has worked wonders with my back pain. For most of the time it has almost gone altogether and I have been able to cut down on pain relief tablets.
PROS. Well made. The 2 belts are each one piece of neoprene, so no seams to eventually come apart.
No stiff edges or components so comfortable to wear.
Large pieces of good quality Velcro.
For my back it works far above expectations.
CONS. In the hot weather it can be a bit sweaty. In the winter I may be grateful for the extra warmth.
Close up it has a slight rubbery smell.
I can only say that it has sorted my back out. It may or may not do the same for you.
Great product. Really well made and protects my back from pain when I play golf. Very supportive and does not need to be too tight. Good depth on it and stretches to be highly adjustable. Adds extra warmth in winter.
