ATV Kidney Belts
A back support racing accessory for professional ATV sport racers works great for farmers who need to protect sore backs when running tractors and other farm equipment across rough ground, according to a California manufacturer.
ATV racing has become a big sport in many parts of the country, especially California. It's similar to motocross in that races are laid out over long, torturously rough terrain that challenges both body and machine. Hundreds of companies manufacture accessories for the sport, including several that make "kidney belts" to support the lower back and inner organs.
Kidney belts are about 8 in. wide and fit snugly around the lower back and abdomen. They're made from durable nylon and elastic fitted with injection-molded plastic support ribs. Styles and sizes vary between companies but a spokesman for the Gold Belt Line, Inc., Reseda, Calif., notes that the belts can be worn for a variety of chores, including heavy lifting.
Gold Belt sells their model 505 series belts for $23.75. Comes in sizes from 27 to 36-in. (regular) to 36-44-in. (X-large) in 11 colors. Several other models with more or less support are also available.
