Abstract:

A lumbar support device that includes a belt circumferentially positioned around the waist of a user. There is also a pair of straps. Each of these straps has opposed ends. These ends are positionable in a first position in which one of these opposed ends is attached to the rear section of the belt. The strap extends over one of the shoulders of the user and is then attached to the other side of the belt at its other opposed end. These straps are both removable from the first position to an alternate second position. In this alternative second position, one of the opposed ends is attached to the waist belt and the strap extends from the belt adjacent one of the legs of the user to overlap one of the knees. The strap then extends back to the belt and is attached to the belt at the other of its opposed ends.
