From slumped to straight—this back support shoulder brace, backboard, and cushion can improve your posture at work, in the car, or at home. So you don’t have to reinvent your routine to realign your back. The Makers behind this Grommet know that good posture takes practice.

Wear the brace like a backpack for a couple of hours each day and you’ll start noticing the shift in your spine.

    @Brian

    I was looking at your backboard and was wondering how it stays in place on the chair? Is it the strap I see in one of the pictures? Also- is this adjustable so I could use it in different chairs/seats?

    @Shellie By applying light pressure (over your knee is easiest), the Backboard can be bent to the desired shape and reformed as often as needed. It's ideal for use whenever and wherever you need the support. It's universal for all chairs and comes with a seat retainer strap meaning you can use it on an office chair, in the car, or on the couch. I use mine at work every day. Have a great morning!

    @Marian Hello, Yes! The BackBoard can work for anyone, as you can control where you need the support. If you need the support higher or lower, you can adjust the bend in that area and it will hold its shape. The strap is also adjustable to hold the BackBoard in place where you need it. Mike posted a video to show how to bend and how to strap to any chair (should be below). Thanks for your interest!

    The Posture Brace: Is lightweight and discreet, it is designed to pull the shoulders back and straighten the spine to instantly improve your posture. It's easy to adjust for a perfect custom fit and its cushioned 'soft-feel' spine makes it comfortable for everyday use. It comes in 2 sizes, Small/Medium: Chest sizes between 28-35 inches, and Large: Chest sizes 36 - 48 inches. Our back and posture products are developed with the London Spine Clinic, the number one private clinic in the UK specializing in back pain.

    @Brian it doesn't look unobtrusive enough to wear under garments. I'm trying to determine how the sizes work for women, if you get my meaning. How long does a person wear it - is it tiring to wear for long periods of time?

    @Barbara Hello Barbara, It is made to wear under clothing, you may see it depending on what you are wearing, but it fits very close to your body. Some find it is good to wear over a t-shirt for additional comfort. We recommend wearing the Posture Brace for a few hours a day to help gradually improve your posture and relieve pain.

    @Barbara For sizing, it comes in two sizes and you measure your chest, around your rib area (middle of your torso). I have a visual; I will see if I can get that posted. Small/Medium: Chest sizes between 28-35 inches, and Large: Chest sizes 36 - 48 inches.

    The red line looks like it goes over your breasts--is that really what you mean? Or is it under the breasts, where the band on a bra runs?

  • Brian
    Brian – Special Guest
    4/14/2017 2:59 PM

    @DIana Hello Diana, It is under, where the band of the bra runs. The red line is more for a man, it would be lower for a female, where you see the straps attaching. Thanks for your interest and have a great weekend!

    The Posture Cushion: This comes pre-inflated and works by de-stabilizing the sitting surface to encourage active sitting and helps work your core muscles. Think of it as a medicine ball chair, but you don’t have to get rid of your current chair, you don’t have to store two chairs, and you can use it whenever you want! I use mine in the afternoon for 30 minutes to keep me moving, or else I tend to sit in one place too long. We attended a trade show this week, and this was a huge hit. This is perfect for people that have to sit a lot at home or work!

    @Pamela Hello, The Posture Brace was specifically designed for your upper and middle back, and helps to improve posture, prevent slouching and relieve pain. If the issue is around posture and slouching, this may be beneficial. We do have some products focused around the Neck Area. I will talk to The Grommet and see if this is a product they would like to offer in the future. Have a great day!

    @Kate Good Morning. I wanted to double check. The Posture Brace does not contain any metal, so you should be fine. It is made from a lightweight, breathable, hygienic anti-microbial fabric. Thank you for your interest!

  • Brian

    4/14/2017 2:42 PM

    @Tom Hello, The Posture Cushion has been designed alongside the London Spine Clinic to improve your posture over time and should help to both prevent slouching and poor posture while you're sitting. We all know that sitting in one position for prolonged periods of time is bad for our health (as I now sit up a little straighter). The Posture Cushion overcomes this by encouraging active sitting, not slouching, and giving you a work out at the same time.
