The Bauerfeind Sports Back Support triggers muscle activation through comfortable compression engineered to protect and support during activities like running, surfing and other sports. This helps to protect the back against strain, and improves your proprioception for maximum movement control.
A soft insert pad provides a stimulating massage of back muscles during movement to improve your posture and reduce back pain.
The combination of enhanced sensorimotor feedback and stimulation of core musculature have a positive effect on posture without fear of causing muscle atrophy.
The support helps to straighten the back and comfortably wraps around the torso.

- Lightweight and can be discreetly worn under clothing
- Optimised climate control during sports

Sizing, How it Works
A perfect fit means faster recovery and improved performance. You will need to measure around your waist with a measuring tape.
Measure your waist 1" below your belly button.
Sports Back Support should feel snug and firm but not constrictive. All Bauerfeind back braces have a 1 year warranty and qualify for our 30 day size exchange policy.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is true medical-grade compression?
Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.
Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.
What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?
Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.
Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.
What is proprioception?
Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.
