The Weighted Posture Training Pack Model 1700 is designed to Improve the core muscles and muscular support of the spine. Regular physical exercise is an excellent way to strengthen muscles and help prevent additional bone loss. Upright, weight bearing activities that place light to moderate tension on the spine and long bones of the body as well as walking exercises while wearing the Weighted Posture Training Pack are encouraged.
The Weighted Posture Training Pack is intended to promote upper back extension without any abdominal support brace. Always check with a physician first to be sure you are healthy enough to exercise. In some cases, your physician may advise you to perform specific exercises while wearing an additional back support. The use of the Weighted Posture Training Pack should be approved and individualized by your physician considering your condition, needs and abilities.
If you have had several compression fractures, exercises should be modified by your physician to address your specific needs and abilities.
Learn proper back extension exercises and their benefits from your physician or physical therapist.
Avoid Flexion or forward bending exercises. Flexion can cause strain on the spine which would increase the risk of fracture through compression of vertebral bodies.
The Weighted Posture Training Pack and the information included are intended to assist individuals in their effort to improve posture or prevent and lessen the effects of osteoporosis on the body. You should use this device and the information and directions only after discussing them with your physician. Be careful not to overdo or overuse. If the use of the Weighted Posture Training Pack to improve posture causes pain, discontinue use and consult your physician for further instruction.
PROPER FITTING OF THE WEIGHTED POSTURE TRAINING PACK
The size and fit of the Weighted Posture Training Pack will be determined by the chart below and approved by your physical therapist or physician. The straps should be adjusted so that the top of the weight pocket is below the bottom of the scapula (shoulder blades).
The bottom of the weight pocket should be at your waistline, not sitting on your hips.
The waist belt should be loose and only to keep the Weighted Posture Training Pack in place. The weight should be supported by your back and not held up by your hips.
Once the Weighted Posture Training Pack is fitted for position, it should not need to be re-adjusted. Simply put on like a jacket and loosely secure the waist belt.
The WPTP has pockets for 8 quarter-pound weights and 1 one-pound weight in the center for a total capacity up to 3 pounds. Place proper weights in pack before putting on.
