The ProFlex 1600 Standard Elastic Back Support is designed to remind workers of proper lifting techniques while also enhancing the body’s intra-abdominal pressure, moving the stress away from the spine for back pain relief. Features an all-elastic 9-inch body for extra-firm support.
To choose your size, use a flexible measuring tape and find the circumference around your body at your belly button. The support should fit snugly around your hips with the front of the support two-fingers width below your navel. An easy-to-use hook & loop closure keeps the belt securely fastened while in use and can be worn over or underneath clothing. Adjust the suspender straps to fit securely on your shoulders without causing tension. Turn it into a back support belt by simply detaching the shoulder straps from the belt.
ProFlex Back Supports provide lower back support and abdominal support for lifting heavy objects. Tightening the back support belt enhances the body’s intra-abdominal pressure and moves the stress away from the spine. When the back support is on correctly, the worker will have additional support for lifting and is more likely to use proper posture.
Great for airport luggage handlers, warehouse/distribution employees, material handling, construction crews, maintenance, assembly/fabrication, landscaping/grounds and jobs that require heavy lifting.
We cannot guarantee that wearing a back brace will prevent workplace injury or be a cure for lower back pain, but when used properly these supports will provide extra lumbar support, promote proper lifting techniques and help you through a workday of bending, twisting, and schlepping. Rest assured, we got your back.

Back supports, or back braces, are a crucial component of workplace safety in Australia and New Zealand. They are designed to reduce the risk of injury from manual tasks. Many workers are unaware of the importance of back support and so do not take the necessary steps to protect their bodies. This lack of knowledge can lead to serious injuries, such as lower back pain, and even long-term disability.
Industrial worksites can be dangerous places. With long hours, heavy loads, and awkward positions, it’s no surprise that back injuries are one of the most common workplace injuries. According to the 2017–18 National Health Survey, by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) 16% of the total population experience back pain. We have seen an increasing number of injuries related, and the required support that helps workers on site with manual handling, including lifting and pushing heavy objects. It has become increasingly important for employers to provide their workers with the proper tools and equipment to reduce the risk of injury. One of the key pieces of equipment is the back support, which has become a vital part of any worksite safety plan. Back supports are designed to reduce the strain and pressure on a person’s back.
We are proud distributors of the best range of back braces on the market, including the Proflex 100 HV, and the low-profile ProFlex 1500 Weight Lifters Style Back Support Brace. Find out more from our website here about how PRYME HAS YOUR BACK.
