" I was in a car accident 13 years ago and fractured my lower lumbar. After 3 surgeries, physical therapy and hundreds of doctor visits, the BaxMAX is the only thing I found that gives me consistent relief."

"I was taking pain meds almost every day for about 10 years to help me deal with my back pain. I tried the BaxMAX at a festival and couldn't believe how it instantly took the pain away.
I tell everyone I know about it now!"

"I injured my back as a young man while lifting a steel I-beam. I have suffered episodes of lower back trouble ever since. Severe episodes usually occurred about twice a year and would require a week of bed rest to recover and several trips to the chiropractor. This cycle continued for decades. I recently suffered an episode that lasted well over a month with no relief no matter what I tried. The pain was unbearable. An over the counter brace worn 24-7 brought no relief. I could hardly get out of bed, stand or walk. I believed it was time for surgery. I was surfing the web in desperation and found your ad. I decided to place an order feeling I had nothing to loose but money. To be honest, I was completely skeptical and had little hope the brace would help me. I received my BAXMAX a few days later. The brace is super lightweight, simple to put on and adjust. The results were immediate. In short, no more back pain. I could stand and walk the second I put it on. I was pain free for the first time in over a month. Bottom line, your product works! It's a prayer come true. I can finally look forward to a good night sleep pain free. I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH."

What's the difference between the BaxMAX and any other back support?
The BaxMAX has unique features that make it "the world's best back support", beginning with the patented pulley system between the the two halves of the belt. The pulley allows for a 5X mechanical advantage over any other back support so the BaxMAX is able to tighten 5X tighter! The BaxMAX is also made of a breathable mesh, making it the lightest and most comfortable back support on the market.
Does it work for everyone?
No, but it does work for most people. The BaxMAX is designed to help people who's pain is caused by lumbar compression. The easiest way to determine if lumbar compression is causing your pain is to see if your pain increases after standing or sitting for long periods and decreases if you take the force of gravity away from the lumbar (for example lying down horizontally). If this occurs for you, then the BaxMAX is very likely to give you significant relief from lower back pain.
Does it really "Unload" body weight from the lumbar spine?
Yes. When the BaxMAX pulley is tightened, it distributes upper body weight away from the spine to the outer most regions of the waist and hips. This body weight "unloading" effect is why the BaxMAX works for so many people and helps them relieve lumbar stress and pain.
How does it take my back pain away?
Under normal circumstances, the forces of gravity compress the lumbar spine with the weight of the upper body. If there are irregularities in the lumbar spine area, such as disc herniation, degeneration, bulged, sciatica, arthritis, etc. this compression effect can make the pain worse than the irregularity itself. By taking upper body wight away from the compromised area, thus reducing the amount of compression that is occurring, natural pain relief will occur.
How long does it usually take to work once I put it on?
Generally, once the BaxMAX is pulled tight and lumbar compression is reduced, pain relief is instant!
Is it recommended by Doctors?
Yes. The BaxMAX is recommended by Medical and Chiropractic Doctors as well as Physical and Occupational Therapists. Please Contact Us for more information on this.
How long does it usually last before it wears out?
This depends on how much you wear it. The BaxMAX has been on the market since 2007 and thousands have been sold! We offer a 5 year replacement warranty.
How long does the pulley cord last?
The cord is made of a high-grade repelling line. It should last well beyond the 5 year replacement warranty period.
Will I get hot and sweaty while wearing it?
Generally not - especially as compared to an elastic back brace. The BaxMAX is made of a thin breathable mesh and is very comfortable to wear while working - even in extreme heat!
How do I make sure to get the right size?
Its best to measure around the belt line and compare it to the size chart shown here.
Are there any precautions I should be aware of?
We don't recommend the BaxMAX for anyone who is pregnant, has gastrointestinal conditions, vascular (circulation) disorders, abdominal or inguinal hernia. If you are concerned about whether or not your medical condition could be negatively impacted by the use of this product, we recommend that you consult your physician.
Can I wash it?
Yes. We recommend that you hand wash in warm water and towel off or air dry. Please don't machine wash!
Can I wear it under my clothes?
Yes. It is thin enough to be comfortably worn under clothing, however we do recommend wearing it between outer and underclothes.
