Better Back Brace

Has anyone tried the Better Back Brace that claims to improve posture while sitting? I can't find any input from Esther on whether she has evaluated this item although in her recommendations she does not mention it (or I'm not finding anything on it).

Thank you!

In our experience, the back brace described on this website does not induce healthy spine architecture: in the short clip just below the main image, the subject goes from slumped (without the "Better Back Brace" to a significant sway with the brace on. Both positions are absolutely not recommended. In the main picture, the subject has a tucked pelvis, which is not healthy for the spine at all.

On this page, Esther recommends the Cybertech brace for certain conditions. Please read her comments: https://shop.gokhalemethod.com/pages/recommended-products

There is a link on this page to order it from Amazon.

Unless there is a specific condition, in a sitting position we encourage adding length to the spine by Stretchsitting (https://gokhalemethod.com/video/stretchsitting) or Stacksitting with a wedge.
