The BaxMAX has unique features that make it "The ULTIMATE Back Support", beginning with the 5:1 compound pulley system between the the two halves of the belt. The pulley allows for a mechanical advantage over elastic or multi-pull back supports, so the BaxMAX is able to get much tighter! The BaxMAX is also made of a breathable mesh, making it the lightest and most comfortable back support on the market.
No, but it does work for most people. The BaxMAX is designed to help people who's pain is caused by lumbar compression. The easiest way to determine if lumbar compression is causing your pain is to see if your pain increases after standing or sitting for long periods and decreases if you take the force of gravity away from the lumbar (for example lying down horizontally). If this occurs for you, then the BaxMAX is very likely to give you significant relief from lower back pain.
Under normal circumstances, the forces of gravity compress the lumbar spine with the weight of the upper body. If there are irregularities in the lumbar spine area, such as disc herniation, degeneration, bulged, sciatica, arthritis, etc. this compression effect can make the pain worse than the irregularity itself. By taking upper body wight away from the compromised area, thus reducing the amount of compression that is occurring, natural pain relief will occur.
Generally, once the BaxMAX is pulled tight and lumbar compression is reduced, pain relief is instant!
