Shoulder immobilizers are one type of brace that keep you from moving your shoulder. Some of them come with
pillows to hold the arm away from the body. Posture and clavicle support braces do not severely restrict the
shoulder’s movement but improve the wearer’s posture by pushing the chest forward. These are also known as posture
