At the beginning of the project, in May 2017, there was no evaluation method capable of characterizing the neuro-proprioceptive properties of a lumbar belt nor its general performances, as this type of belt was not available on the market. In addition, proprioception is a complex notion whose evaluation methods are not yet convincing. However, integrating this concept into the design of lumbar belts would promote faster rehabilitation, a clear advantage for athletes. This is the goal set by POZA (a company in Montreal, Canada): to develop a prototype whose neuro-proprioceptive potential can be demonstrated scienti
