Back on Track Dog Back Brace is a supportive, therapeutic garment for pets that may be suffering from back pain, recovering from surgery or any form of back condition.
Manufactured from the revolutionary Welltex® ceramic infused polypropylene fabric, the Back Brace is designed to support improved circulation in the exact area where it is needed.
The garment is secured around the body of the dog using Velcro straps, with a removable soft, rectangular pad, which conforms to the curves around the spine to achieve optimal body contact.

About Back on Track:
The company Back on Track manufactures joint and muscle protection, which are manufactured from a “ceramic textile” which is sold under the registered brand name Back on Track.
The textile is made up of fibres of polyester and polypropylene (some of the products are mixed with cotton fibres) with a ceramic powder fused into the fibres. The ceramic gives the fabric its unique property, which reflects body heat in the form of infrared heat radiation.
How does Back on Track work?
It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscles tension and improves performance. One important property is the injury prevention effect, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition.
Heat energy can be transported in three ways: conduction (transfer), convection or radiation.
- When heat transfer or conduction occurs, the heat in a material spreads from one part of the material to another.
- Convection is the loss of heat when a heated liquid or gas (e.g. air) is displaced, carrying the heat with it. The insulating material in ordinary clothing and joint supports, for example cotton, wool and neoprene, is designed to prevent convection and thus retains body heat in the air outside the skin.
- Radiation occurs when a heat source emits heat radiation, where upon it collides with another surface and heats it. Back on Track’s products work with radiant heat, the purpose of which is to avoid trapping the heat through insulation. This is so that the protection has a respiratory function, while heat energy in the body tissues increases.
