Developed by Professor Lai Hui-Wu, this knee sleeve is the culmination of years of research and clinical experience, including case studies, medical literature, and court prescriptions across multiple dynasties.
While we have not been able to find studies specifically on this belt for the lower back region, there have been similar studies done on knee and shoulder regions:
Clinical study 1: Clinical analysis of 505 Shengong shoulder pads and knee sleeves in the treatment of rheumatic diseases. The use of Shengong 505 shoulder pads and knee pads for 50 cases of rheumatism was clinically observed over 10 days for a course of treatment, with a total of two courses of treatment, along with gua sha scraping and hot compresses to accelerate the absorption of drugs. The total effective rate after treatment was 98%, and it was concluded that the treatment had a significant effect on alleviating rheumatoid arthritis (shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, and ankle).

Clinical study 2: Evaluating the effect of 505 Shengong knee sleeves on the knee using infrared thermography. The study was conducted on 16 patients suffering from knee arthritis (pain, swelling, limited movement), wearing 505 Shengong knee sleeves for one to two hours indoors under a controlled temperature setting. Researchers used HR-I type infrared thermography to record and extract the temperature and other indexes of the six relevant acupoints in the knee joint. The control groups were as follows: compared before and after the patients wore the knee sleeve; compared one knee which wore the herbal knee sleeve and one knee which did not. Researchers concluded that wearing Shengong knee sleeves can significantly increase local temperature and improve local microcirculation.
