Can the Back Support be used together with a bandage/dressing?
We do not recommend Vantelin Back Support to be used together since the bandage/dressing may come off or shift.
How long can I use the Back Support continuously?
If you are wearing Vantelin Back Support for a prolonged period of time, remove the back support periodically to rest your back before putting the back support on again. Do not use Vantelin Back Support while sleeping.
What is the Back Support effective for?
Vantelin Back Support fits your body with the appropriate tightening pressures in such a manner that the abdomen is raised. It can help you keep a proper posture and restricts such excessive flexing and twisting on the upper back area that can cause pains.
When and for what purpose can I use the Back Support?
Vantelin Back Support can provide compression and support to your lower back, lumbar and abdominal area while twisting and bending.
What are the precautions for use?
Please follow the instructions for use. Improper use will reduce the effect and cause it to break or tear.
To ensure effective use, adjust the tightness so that you can feel a firm pressure in the lower back area.
To store the support, align the fasteners with each other completely so that it does not wrinkle and catch any other fabric.
Why can the Back Support not be worn while sleeping?
Unconscious movement such as turning in your sleep may cause the support to move to a position out of place, which in turn can lead to a physical disorder.
Can I use the Back Support when I have an injury or swelling?
We recommend that you consult your doctor/physician to assess the extent of your injury before use. While support holds the back firmly, it is intended for supporting the user's daily life only.
Can I use the Back Support during pregnancy or nursing?
No, please do not use Vantelin Back Support if you are pregnant or nursing.
Where is it manufactured?
It is manufactured in Japan.
