The BackUp is the back support that every home should have at least one of. It stops slouching, corrects and retrains posture, which is essential in treating and maintaining a healthy back. Ideal for medium and larger builds, it provides optimum comfort whilst sitting.

The BackUp is recommended for the correct posture of anyone sitting for long periods of time at a desk, computer, during pregnancy, as a vehicle and aircraft passenger, or for the relief of mechanical back pain following manual labour and gardening.
Posture retrains during regular use through muscle memory, keeping the pelvis upright in the correct position, preventing pressure on lumbar discs. If you are working at the computer, sit and use it; watching a television programme, sit and use it. If you come in from gardening, sit in it and have a coffee. Five–ten minutes later, your back will be feeling better as you continue your day.
Regular use can be sitting in your BackUp for as little as an hour a day, longer if it suits. In two-three weeks, muscle memory activates, resulting in automatic correct posture effortlessly when you sit. Surgeons advise it is safe sitting in the BackUp for just five minutes a day, or all day, as neither will do you any harm - it's simply retains your back in the correct posture it is designed for. Also known as the chair that you wear, use it at home or in the office, if you have had a big physical day, after sport, or when you need a chair while out and about.
The lightweight portable design gives you an ergonomic chair anywhere you go, and Stretch Straps are included with the BackUp.
The accessory Stretch Straps enable effective stretching of hamstring,
adductor and calf muscles, without compromising your lower back.
Tight hamstrings and calves can cause a sore back as the body cannot bend forward keeping a straight back if your muscles are tight. Stretching them regularly with the Stretch Straps is quick and beneficial. It is as easy as sitting in a chair with your feet up using the BackUp with straps attached. For those who care to do some more advanced stretches there are several included to choose from.
The BackUp is light and portable so that you can always sit comfortably no matter where you go, indoors, outdoors and traveling.
The SportBacker is great for smaller body types. A more compact version of the BackUp, it was designed for the sports kit and travel bag markets, allowing you to sit in comfort anywhere in the world!
The SportBacker does not come with Stretch Straps or cushshins but these can be purchased if required.

The KiddyUp is a child-sized BackUp that allows children to sit comfortably anywhere ... erect, crosslegged or in chairs. Included are a short pair of attractive rainbow-coloured Stretch Straps.
NOTE: For parents of children with disabilities, therapists recommend using the KiddyUp to aid in hamstring stretching - a job that normally requires two helpers, can be done here with one, so is likely to be done more regularly.
SIZING: The KiddyUp will fit if sitting in a chair, your child is 48 inches or less from knee-to-knee measuring around the lower back, OR, if long-sitting on the ground your child is 80 inches or less from foot-to-foot measured around the low back.
