Details

The AlignMed S3 Posture Brace is designed to provide scapular retraction to improve postural alignment, enhance scapular function, and to relieve pain.  IThe scapula brace is designed to improve posture, reduce pain and expedite recovery. 

The patented design signals the brain to correct improper posture, by re-educating and re-engineering the muscles surrounding the shoulder and spine.  The S3 spine and scapular system has three sets of straps that can be used in three separate configurations (pictured below) to optimize the desired postural correction.  By adjusting the tension on the elastic straps the scapular stabilizing effect can be modified as needed. 

The zippered front of the scapula brace allows for easy removal.  The S3 brace is ideal for athletes, older individuals with a rounded mid back, or anyone with rounded shoulders. 

AlignMed S3 Posture Brace Features:

  • Comfortable Lycra shoulder stabilization shirt for excellent breathability and durable elastic straps for creating the desired tension for improving your posture.
  • Three different strapping positions for customized effectiveness.
  • A premium posture brace designed to re-orient the positioning of the scapulae.
  • Zippered front for easy fitting.
  • Improves alignment and relieves pain and stress around the shoulders, neck, and your mid back.
  • Our in stock posture brace is a black shirt with black straps since previous gray and white shirts (pictured) have been discontinued.
  • The pictures above show three different ways the straps can be applied for maximum effectiveness; instructions included.
  • Color: Black.
  • Custom sizes are available. Please call. There is a $100 charge.

S3 Shirt Research: 

Journal of Athletic Training 2013;48(1):12–24  Key findings showed an increase in electromyographic (EMG) activity of the upper, middle, and lower trapezius muscles when participants wore the scapular-stabilizing brace.  The shirt along with its tension straps affected posture by reducing forward shoulder angle or rounded shoulder apearance.  Clinicians might consider using a scapular brace as an adjunct to prerehabilitation and rehabilitation exercises in athletes with poor posture.

Reviews
2nd one I've owned, great quailty.
Simply a great product that has provided postural help for my injury. This is the second one I've owned (first one purchased 10 years ago) and the improvements are nicer than my first shirt. Arrived in two days - very fast.

Performance of the S3 Postural Brace
At first, I struggled with putting the garment on correctly, unassisted. Once I solved that issue, which is not really worth complaining about, I found the suit to be everything it was supposed to be. There has been a break-in period of sorts as one of the back straps compresses an area which is sensitive to touch. But, with some minor adjustments that issue is easing to point that I can now wear the jacket for several hours each day. Finally, I have noticed that I am naturally beginning to utilize better posture during periods in which I am not wearing the jacket. It will be interesting to see how this evolves over the next several months. At this point, I have no reason to doubt that it performs as advertised.

Beats Taping
I was having my shoulder blade taped by our athletic trainer but the repeated taping was expensive and removing it just kept irritating my skin. I get the same support and it pulls my shoulder blade back just as well when I'm throwing. It does cost more than a regular shoulder support but it does address my shoulder blade issue very well.

Q&A for AlignMed S3 Posture Brace

  • From Kyle
    • Q: What is the wearing schedule? How long each day do i wear the brace? Do I eventually wean myself off of it?
    • A: Hi Kyle,

      The wearing schedule is determined according to the patient's symptoms and their unique diagnosis. Some individuals wear the S3 for the entire day to help with pain from chronic postural deficits whereas others wear it just for sports training purposes. So the type of individuals using this product is as varied as their injuries. Consult with your healthcare professional for specific recommendations as to the frequency and duration of use for this brace.

  • From Nusa
    • Q: I've seen an S4 model online. This one seems designed to work for my scapular & rotator cuff issues, yet the S4 also appears designed for shoulder (among other) recoveries... How are they different?
      Thank you.
    • A: Hi Nusa,

      We have also seen the mention of an S4 brace online which looks exactly like the Alignmed S3 - this is an error on the part of this online entity not getting the product's title correct. The S3 is designed to treat scapular and shoulder conditions related to postural deficiencies. It's both comfortable and is easy to apply in seconds. The straps can be applied in different directions to correct the dynamic positioning of the scapulae with everyday, work, and sports activities.

  • From Mary
    • Q: I have a patient who is 5'3", Waist 40", Weight 160, length of torso 20". What size would she fall under?
    • A: Hi Mary,

      In this case all of your "dimensions" do not fall neatly underneath a particular size which means a custom made product would have to be ordered so that it fits properly. We can do that at not extra charge. Simply give us a call and we'll help with ordering up a custom-made (non-returnable) version of the S3.

  • From Bill
    • Q: Should I sleep with it on? How long each day should I wear it?
    • A: Hi Bill,

      As we do not have your name in our system here, it is best that you consult with your healthcare professional about the proper treatment application and length of time this type of medical product should be worn.

      Thank you,
