posture support brace

I have recently had a pacemaker placed(3 months), dual chamber for just pacin.  i  have bad posture for several years.  I had thought of a posture brace before the surgery but never acted.  Most i see have the straps right where my site is.  My question is does anyone up here use one and if so which one and how did it affect your pacemaker site?

things that get in the way

I've never used a back brace, but I hike with a heavy backpack and some packs have straps that go over the pacer site. It doesn't bother me. However, we are all built differently and our pacers are all placed differently so the only thing to do is try it and see how you feel. You aren't going to damage the pacer, it's just a matter of what's comfortable for you.

You’re officially battery-operated.
