you know that "rubberband thing" a lady will wear after they give birth. the name i think they call it "back support". it work exactly when you wear a angle band, or a knee band or etc.

there is this back support band for men. the reason for wearing it is to tight up the tummy and back for support. sometime they use it for "reduce big belly" or to look good without the belly.

anyway, that give a good back support and protect. i used to wear one of these when i play dirt bike. gym also have a back support belt but it is too hard, so i think not suit for driving. i think the "band" will do a better job.

you can try.

I think it's more to do with your posture. Sit more upright while driving but I believe it's difficult for many. I sit more upright when driving and it's safer when used with the safety belt as there's less free play between belt and body. Beer

have the backjoy from guardian in my car ...ok when passenger, not so when driving....then again i have a bit butt and that thing is quite small. recently changed car, the car seat make a difference. The newer bucket-like seats are quite comfortable (more difficult to get out of it though Sad ). Also dont drive with a thick wallet in ur back pocket, makes u tilt to one side, very pain after long drive.

Yes, agree with tronos. I used to put my wallet at the back pocket. Not anymore. Smile
