The BackUp is the model that every home should have at least one of. It retrains correct posture which is essential in treating and maintaining a healthy back.
It is ideal for medium and larger builds and provides optimum comfort whilst sitting.
The BackUp is recommended to retrain correct posture of anyone sitting for long periods of time. Either at a desk or computer, during pregnancy, as a passenger on long trips in cars, buses and aircraft or for relief of mechanical back pain following work or gardening.
'The more you use the BackUp
initially, the less you need it.'
The BackUp retrains the body through muscle memory to keep the pelvis upright in the correct position, preventing pressure on Lumbar discs. If you are working on the computer sit and use it. When you know you are going to watch your favorite television program, sit and use it. If you come in from gardening, sit and have a coffee in it. Five – ten minutes later your back will be feeling better and you can continue with your day.
Within about three weeks of using your Backup regularly you will find that you automatically keep your pelvis upright when sitting.
Once this is achieved you may only choose to use your Backup when you sit for long periods, if you have had a big physical day, or for times when you need a chair when out and about.
Extension straps come with the BackUp so that you can engage the feet and sit on the ground with your feet out or in bed reading.
'The extension straps allow you effective stretching of your Hamstring,
Adductor and Calf muscles without compromising lower back comfort.'
Use the extension straps to perform the hamstring stretches regularly. Tight hamstrings lead to sore backs as the body cannot bend forward keeping a straight back if your muscles are tight.
Stretching is as easy as sitting in a chair with your feet up using the Backup, and for those who care to do some more advanced stretches there are several shown in the Backup’s instruction book. These are quick and really beneficial.
The BackUp is light and portable so that you can always sit comfortably no matter where you go, indoors, outdoors and traveling.
