FUNCTIONALITY

The ELANEE support belt supports the stomach and alleviates back pain by taking some of the burden off the muscles of the back and pelvic floor. The fully adjustable Velcro fastener means that you can adjust the belt to suit individual requirements. This means that the support belt can be worn throughout the entire pregnancy and after giving birth. Using the two additional elastic straps, the supportive effect can be adjusted to fit personal requirements for comfort and stability.
It is important that you use the right size of ELANEE support belt and that it is positioned correctly, in order to achieve the very best level of support. The graphics and product images on the packaging indicate the correct sizing and the correct positioning of the belt. When doing this, follow these steps:
