New As Seen on TV products are notorious for going out of stock quickly. The reason for this is because these products are usually first put on the market in a test phase to see if the public is interested. During this test phase, only a limited number of items are available. As soon as it is evident that the product will be a ’hit’ the retailer contacts their supplier to create more of the item. Many people end up missing out on receiving these items because they wait until they are 100% certain they are no longer on backorder. When you order a product that is on backorder, you will be placed on an order fill list which will see customers receive their item in the order in which they were purchased. If you wait until the product is available, the product may be sold out again by the time all backorders are fulfilled.

How it’s Different from Competitors
The BeActive Brace is not revolutionary; however, it does attack lower back pain in a method not utilized by other back braces. All competitors target the sciatic nerve by either supplying additional lower back support or hot and cold compresses. When reviewing the competitors' sites, they all had one thing in common: they blamed the sciatic nerve for the most common cause of lower back pain. BeActive Brace targets the sciatic nerve where it is most exposed, in the leg. As the sciatic nerve travels from the upper leg through the lower back any effect on the nerve will be experienced throughout its entire range.
What is Sciatica?
The MayoClinic, a trusted online medical information researcher, explains Sciatica as pain radiating along the path of the sciatic nerve. The Sciatic nerve travels from your lower back down your hips, buttocks and legs. Sciatica occurs due to a herniated disk, a bone spur, or when the spine compresses a part of the sciatic nerve. Pain my be felt anywhere along the path of this nerve.
