Vector Back Brace - #1 for Targeted Lumbar Compression (L) Review

My husband's family has a history of back problems. He has been down on his back at times. It doesn't help that he's a dental technician; where he hunches over a lot. We recently got Vector Back Brace - #1 for Targeted Lumbar Compression (L) from BioSkin to review.

It comes with a Hot/Cold Gel Pad. Many get pads are only cold, or hot, but usually not both. Different pains require different temps.

To heat:

Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Flip the pad every 10 seconds. We heated ours up, and had no leaking problems.

To freeze:

Place the pad in the freezer for at least an hour. This does require more planning.

There is a pocket in the brace for the Hot/Cold Gel Pad. This is really handy!

The brace looked a little complicated to me at first. Let me tell you it's not complicated to use at all! It has thick velcro in the center, and a pulley system to pull and attach. Everything is pretty sturdy! It should be snug, not tight. Travis had no problem pulling it to fit right. 


If you need to wash it it's hand wash only. You can use a detergent, but it needs to be a mild one. I make my own, so that's what we'll use. I wasn't expecting to wash this any other way. Sticking something in the machine that has a lot of velcro seems like you're asking for it to break down. Hang it up to dry. 

What Travis Thought:

My husband likes this so much that he brought it to work for his co-worker to try. His co-worker has been in and out of the hospital with back problems.

This may be something we get for my in-laws next year. It's handy, and they have back problems!


$153.95, but on Amazon it's for sale for $99.95! I think this is a great price considering the costs of going to a chiropractor over and over again. Prevention is key!

I have back problems and back aches pretty often. I can just imagine how warm and comfortable it must feel to relieve the pain! When would be a good time to use cold pads to relieve back pain?

Cold makes the swelling go down for a pulled muscle. Heat makes the pulled muscle relax. You should go back and forth from cold to hot. Just like you would with a hurt ankle.

Jason spends a fortune on chiropractor visits. I wonder if this would help him. I'll have him check it out on Amazon.

I like how nice and big it is on the back. I would love to have it for my good friend who always has back aching.

I like the pully system
It is sometimes difficult to get it tight enough doing it alone, this would be a big help
