    An ergonomic back brace you’ll want to wear emBrace is an inflatable back brace for young people with chronic lower back pain that blurs the line between a medical device and a fashionable accessory. Existing braces are a hassle to use, are bulky, and don’t take body types into consideration. This can negatively impact the user's view not only of the brace, but also of their pain. Through self-massage, air is distributed into a pattern of inflatable cells that contour the shape of the body. emBrace presses acupressure points while providing support for the spine, thus alleviating pain – and looking good while doing it.
