Best Back Supports For Working From Home

Friday, 4 December 2020 08:46:29 Europe/London

With a recent survey suggesting that over a third of Britons have experienced an increase in back pain during the lockdown, we thought we’d share our best back supports to help you work from home in comfort.

A great way to support your posture and prevent lower back pain is to add a lumbar belt to your desk chair. These act as comfortable padding that you can strap around the backrest of your chair.

The lumbar is the lower part of your spine. While your spine should have a natural ‘S’ shape, a chair with no lumbar support can allow your spine to move into a 'C' shape especially if you hunch over a desk while working on a laptop.

We’re sharing three of our best back supports which are perfect for using at home so you can stop worrying about your posture and back health, and get back to acing your daily work tasks and projects.

1. PUTNAMS LARGE BACKREST

This large backrest with an adjustable strap is perfect for use at home or on the go and offers excellent lumbar support. Featuring contoured Putnafoam on a solid base, this backrest was researched and approved by the Royal Orthopedic Hospital. You can also choose from a range of velour covers including black, blue, grey, or beige.

2. NOVELTY BACK SUPPORTS – PIGGY AND SHEEP

If you need a little something to brighten up your work-from-home environment, we can recommend these fun piggy and sheep back supports with a soft, fluffy feel. Made from our top selling memory foam these lumbar supports are designed to fit into the natural curve of the spine, improve posture, and relieve pressure off your back.

3. MASSAGE BACK SUPPORT

Who doesn’t like a massage? This contoured back massager is perfectly designed to support the spine, while the raised nodules relieve tension and discomfort while massaging away any muscle aches, pains, and knots. With an adjustable strap, you can attach it to your chair at home for a soothing day at work.

There are a number of products you can buy to support your back while sitting for long periods of time, including lumbar supports. However, if you are suffering from serious or persistent back pain problems, we recommend consulting your GP for advice.

Knee Braces Vs Knee Sleeves – What’s The Difference?

Friday, 27 November 2020 08:43:39 Europe/London

If you’ve been searching online for a knee support, you’ve probably come across two types - the knee brace and the knee sleeve. As they look similar, you may be wondering what the difference is? Read our blog to find out exactly which one you should buy.

WHAT ARE KNEE BRACES USED FOR?

Knee braces are specialist products designed to give the knee a high level of support and protection.

Common uses for knee braces include:

• Support after an injury such as an ACL sprain or tear.
• Protection during moderate to heavy sports activities and exercise.
• Relieve pain and inflammation.
• Keep the knee in place if you have a loose or unstable knee joint also known as chronic laxity.

There are also specialist Osteoarthritis knee braces that are specially designed to relieve severe joint pain in people who suffer from arthritis.

From supportive straps to integrated comfort zones, knee braces are designed to be ergonomic, easy to use, and comfortable.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A KNEE BRACE AND A KNEE SLEEVE?

Unlike knee braces, knee sleeves are made from elastic materials and tend to offer a lower level of support than braces. However, a key benefit of using a knee sleeve is that they are more flexible and allow freer movement.

Knee sleeves are perfect for low to moderate pain or exercise whereas knee braces are perfect for high contact sports, post-injury rehabilitation, and chronic joint pain or laxity.
