The Backboard™ is a simple, adjustable car lumbar support that helps improve posture and restore the natural curve of the spine when seated.
Car owners spend on average one hour a day sat in their car, that over 15 days a year!
The problem with sitting for long periods of time is that you naturally begin to slump in your seat, pushing out the natural curve in your lower back and putting strain on the back muscles, making sitting posture never more important than when you're driving.
Adopting a correct sitting posture is the simplest solution to reducing these postural stresses and strains. The key is to prevent your lower back from slumping or sagging outwards and this is where our car back support, the Backboard™ can help.
The Backboard™ helps correct postural imbalances and simply slides into the back of your car seat, supporting the natural inward curve by pushing your pelvis forward. This small change helps to put the correct curvature in your spine, encouraging you to sit upright in the correct position and improve your seated posture.
Sitting in a car is very different to being sat in a regular office chair or even a sofa. Your entire body's mobility is limited by the confines of the cars cabin and often causes incorrect sitting posture. This bad posture can have a considerable effect on drivers who spend a long time commuting or sat in traffic.
Whilst there are a wide variety of lumbar supports on the market today, many are a "one size fits all solution". However this does not take into account that people and car seats are all shapes and sizes and everyone has different requirements depending on the shape of their lumbar curve.
For a support to work it must fit your unique anatomy, for example, some people will need a deeper support while others will need a shallower support.
This is what makes the Backboard™ so unique as it can be bent into any position, it can be specifically tailored to fit the curvature of your back and also your cars seat.
By simply applying light pressure, the Backboard™ can be bent to the desired shape and reformed as often as needed and as it retains its form it's ideal for use whenever and wherever you need the support.
Once you have used the backboard we know that you will be want to take it with you everwhere you travel. The good news It's that it is universal for all seats whether that be on a plane, train or autombiles and you can also use it on the couch or in the garden too!
The Backboard™ was developed in conjunction with Harley Street specialists, the London Spine Clinic, a centre of excellence for all spinal care. They recommend using the Backboard™ whenever you are seated to minimise the load on your back and stop prolonged stresses from sitting in a slumped position whilst driving.
