ProFlex 1650 Economy Elastic Back Support Belt, Black, Large


After 25 years and at least 30 positive epidemiological studies, we could fill a front-end loader with research that proves back support effectiveness. Bottom line is, smart companies big and small have learned the value of the back support. Back injuries are the most significant occupational health problem by far, and thousands of companies and workers use supports everyday as part of a complete approach to reducing their severity and frequency. The purpose is simple: provide additional truncal support, limit range of motion associated with injury, and remind the worker that they are lifting.

Proflex 1650 Economy Elastic Back Support Size Chart, September 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship of the Proflex 1650 Economy Elastic Back Support. I would highly recommend this product. One reviewer commented that the suspenders are hard to adjust, but I found out that once you have it adjusted it works nicely you can open the belt while sitting and Velcro it back up when your working and it will not fall off your body. The only thing I had a hard time with is there was no sizing chart on the Amazon webpage so here it is… Hope it helps!

Quality made but hard to get the right size. Maybe XL = 46″- 52″, L = 40″-46″, April 13, 2013

None of the companies who make these back supports seem to have ever tried their products on real people to get the sizing right. I don’t see any size guidelines in the listing and the size chart offered in another review is pretty far off, from my experience. I have a waist size that varies from 42 to 46 depending on how active I am. Because the stretchy side wings are too long on the XL, it’s really too big to give me strong back support. I just ordered the same thing in a size Large, which I expect to be pretty tight when my waist is at 44 inches — but it needs to be tight to provide good back support. This brand is very well made but it’s useless if it doesn’t fit right. I could probably have used the XL if they had simply made the side panel adjusters a bit shorter. They were definitely too long to give any meaningful adjustability — so you have to be within a few inches of the size it’s made for or you will need a different size! As I said, this back support is very well-made but, size-wise, this company has not planned or designed very thoughtfully.

I have a 38″ waist so your one size fits all average back support just barely fits, always on the verge of popping right off. From my experience XL is the same as getting a one-size. No difference whatsoever. So I thought a 2XL should do the trick. Turns out its WAY TOO BIG! At least from this company. Maybe would start at about 44″ on up.
