The function of the DDS 500 back brace is scientific, precise and very simple.

Spinal decompression is created as the DDS 500 inflates with air. Our patented VAP Technology decreases axial loading while increasing intervertebral disc space by anchoring underneath the rib cage pushing upwards and against the pelvic girdle pushing downwards. This action gently stretches the torso vertically and displaces stress away from the affected disc and nerve. Pressure and pain levels, within the lumbar spine region, is significantly reduced which can assist active-rehabilitation.

  • Accepted by Medicare and most private insurances
  • Drug free back pain relief
  • Easily provide on the spot treatment
  • Prevent pain by wearing prior to strenuous activity

The DDS 500 Decompression Back Brace’s unique and patented spinal air traction design is thin, lightweight and easy to use; it offers a high degree of mobility, alleviating and preventing back pain. It can be discreetly worn under clothing allowing you to perform daily activities such as driving, walking and standing for long periods of time, and enabling those with an active lifestyle to work, enjoy sports and other leisure activities pain-free. Disc Disease Solutions will speed up your recovery and help you enjoy the daily activities that were once too difficult.

The DDS 500 is the perfect solution for patients who cannot tolerate the discomfort of a rigid body jacket yet require similar support. It is especially valuable for pre and post surgery, providing with equal stability as a stiff body jacket. As the patient progresses and requires less support, the detachable rigid panels can be removed to create a semi-rigid support with one or no support panels. It easily converts to a soft LSO and provides greater flexibility.

What patients are saying

"The DDS should have come along a long time ago. I have tried other back belts from Walgreens, Home Depot and Wal-Mart, but the DDS is far more superior."
