These braces will help you lift your back and shoulders upright so that your posture does not bend forward as much.
At the very least they will remind you to stand up straight.
We carry a variety of different wrist splints ranging from 6' to 8' supporting both wrists or abducting your thumb. For less firm options, we carry flexible wrist and thumb supports as well.
Back / Lumbar Braces
Back braces are probably the most common braces. People may wear a back brace for injury or simply just support throughout the day.

How Do Compression Socks Work?
The 8-15mmHg level of compression is usually for those who are thinking ahead and may want to use compression stockings early on for preventative measures.
This is the lightest compression that you will find which is why it is usually not recommended for those who already have some type of swelling or varicose veins.
Although it will provide some type of compression, it may not be enough for your blood flow to push up and decrease swelling in your limbs.
The 15-20mmHg compression is the most common and popular level of compression for most people. It's not necessary for you to have any swelling in order to wear these stockings but they may provide comfort for those of you who are on your feet all day or travel often.
The compression level basically means that there is a level of "20" compression towards the end of your feet and it is gradually decreasing to a level of "15" compression towards the rest of your body. This causes the blood to flow upwards so that your swelling may decrease and prevent clotting in one area.
The 20-30mmHg is a high level of compression where a physician's advice may be required for you to know that you do need this higher level of compression. These tend to be tighter than the 15-20 level of compression but are not as tight as the 30-40 level of compression.
The 30-40mmHg compression is the highest level of compression provided by Jobst. This tightness will also be prescribed by a doctor to ensure that your condition is suitable for this tightness.
