    upper back brace

    Does anyone know of a brace that goes over the shoulders to hold them back, which would stop me from bending forward all the time? I need something like that, as that bending at the ribs is not good for my spine and scapulas.

    Thanks,
    Alan

    I was thinking about trying one of these a while back but I feel better with my new chair. I did a search for posture support and this was the first listing.

    I hope you find something to help you.

    Hope you find something that works Alan. The link that Jaycue posted is something that looks good. I was going to suggest something similar.
    Buck anan's link they fasten to your chair, sorta movement restricting, something to think about. And they don't list prices, you know what that means $$$$$.

    Alan, is your chair back adjustable at all? Sometimes a little tweak to the backrest height/angle makes all the difference. Maybe you can take a side view pic of yourself in the chair?

    We've tried to adjust the back, but I always lean forward and sideways (even strapped), so the back alignment doesn't matter. And the leaning makes my back pain even worse. Feels like my spine is broken in half. Had an ortho dealt with my curves years ago, I wouldn't have these problems.
