Proback

About

Back brace for caregivers (low cost, human augmentation)

Proback is a supportive aid, designed to enable good posture for caregivers required to move patients with motor disabilities. Physical activities undertaken by the caregiver may include bathing, dressing, rotating and transferring the patient - physically demanding jobs for which there are limited resources for support. Proback is a muscular support that fits the lumbar area with a memory foam pad, forcing the spinal column to maintain its natural position. An elastic band holds and reinforces organs and muscles without damage, while springs and belts held around the leg allow an easy return to a regular standing position. Proback provides the caregiver with maximum confidence and freedom, and consequently encourages the support of patients.
