Answer:
The brace provides good support. However, if you lift heavy objects, it is important to watch your posture and lifting habits to avoid any injuries.

Answer:
No, I wouldn't recommend it. It gets too tight when you sit very long. It works better when you are up moving around doing something.

However, this unit comes with a somewhat bulky lumbar piece that can be removed. Please understand this! A back brace is to be used as a "preventative" device and or a "recouperative" protector. Wear it to prevent injury, i.e, heavy lifting, If injured and intending to wear it to releave pain, do so with limitation. The reason is that the affected area muscles become dependent on the brace whereas theraputic (therapy) exercise eventually should help restore the affected area support muscles. Hope this helps as I use mine frequently while doing yard work or the activities that might affect my lumbar disc that gives me fits from time to time. see less I did wear it under a shirt and with my pants over the lower portion of the back.

Answer:
Probably wouldn't help your bad knees.
It does give lower back support so should help with back pain depending how bad your back is.

Answer:
The tailbone is quite low and you may need a specific brace for your requirement. I would consult your chiropractor.

Answer:
It might put pressure on the ribs of a short person. I am 5’9” and it works fine for me. I do find it very hard to disengage the velcro and I work with weights, so if you do not have very strong hands and wrists, it would give you difficulty.
