The LumboTrain provides mild pain relief to the lower back region.
This back support features wide hand loops, helping you put on the support with ease and allow for the amount of targeted support to be adjusted. Produced from a comfortable knit material, the LumboTrain is anatomically contoured to the spine’s natural curve to provide all day comfort and help with posture adjustment.
Unlike the LumboLoc, the LumboTrain features a unique friction gel pad which massages the lower back region during movement. This triangular gel pad effectively massages the lumbar area to relieve muscle tension.
For sacroiliac joint or pelvic pain relief, we recommend the SacroLoc back brace.
For extra lower back stability, we recommend the LumboLoc back brace.
A perfect fit means faster recovery and improved performance. You will need to measure your waist with a measuring tape.
Measure your waist circumference 1" below your belly button.
LumboTrain should feel snug and firm along your back but not constrictive. All Bauerfeind back braces have a 1 year warranty and qualify for our 30 day size exchange policy.
The LumboTrain Lady and LumboTrain back brace are similar however the LumboTrain Lady is built to contour a woman’s waist.
The LumboTrain back brace supports the lumbar spine area to treat lower back pain whereas the SacroLoc back brace stabilises the pelvis area and relieves the sacroiliac joints.
The mode of action of the LumboTrain is through the viscoelastic gel back pad which relieves lumbar tension. The SacroLoc has two massage pads which cut out at the iliac spine (SIPS) for better comfort. The pads gently massage the affected muscles during movement and the compression relieves tension which helps to reduce pain.
The two back braces also differ in strapping system. The SacroLoc stabilises the pelvis through a patented strap system made with an elastic mesh material that provides a higher level of sturdiness and stability during every day movement. The LumboTrain uses a hand strap system which makes it easier to fit and wear the back brace on a daily basis.
The LumboTrain and the LordoLoc back brace both provide support and stabilisation for the lumbar spine. The LordoLoc differs from LumboTrain in providing stabilisation to the lumbar spine region and lumbosacral junction through higher rigidity.
Flexible aluminium strips located at the back provide correct support for posture and gentle stabilisation of the lumbar spine region. There is an additional elastic tension strapping system to provide greater stabilising effect.
The LumboTrain on the other hand provides active relief through the viscoelastic gel back pad which massages the back muscles during movement to relieve pain.
The LumboLoc back brace provides stabilisation and relief by correcting the posture of the lumbar spine through four aluminium strips at the back which provide rigidity and firmness to the back.
The LumboTrain is best worn in direct contact with the skin however it can also be worn over a thin T-shirt. It is not recommended to wear the LumboTrain over clothes as it reduces the effectiveness of the massaging viscoelastic gel pad.
Medically necessary back braces are covered under the durable medical equipment (DME) prefabricated orthotics benefit, however your medicare-approved physician must prescribe the back brace to receive the rebate.
Bauerfeind Australia is currently not an official supplier of Medicare, so you will not be able to receive the 80% rebate from Medicare. Certain private health insurance providers cover Bauerfeind back braces which are prescribed by a physician, please contact your health insurance provider to find out.
Our back braces can be worn while sleeping if you require stabilisation of the spine during your sleep. However, back braces are recommended to be worn during daily activity or during sporting activity to provide support during movement.

Ever since I purchased my first knee brace from bauerfeind I knew the quality would be and support would be worth the price tag. Recently having lower back issues, having to see a chiropractor and physio I decided to get a back brace to help with the extra support in my recovery and it did exactly that without a doubt.
