After injuring his back, John Wheeler, designer of the Inside Edge Backsaver and keen surfer, needed back support specifically designed for use in water. There were many lower back supports on the market, but none met John's requirements for long-term use in a range of aquatic conditions. After refining his initial idea in many prototypes, John settled on the design that became the Inside Edge Backsaver®.

Now, like thousands of users worldwide, John enjoys his activities knowing that Inside Edge Backsaver® will give his lower back extra support, but won't cramp his style.

*The Inside Edge Backsaver® is available in three colours: black, black and black.
