The award winning Backboard™ is a simple, adjustable lumbar support that helps improve posture and relieve pressure on the spine when sitting.
Developed in conjunction with the London Spine Clinic, the Backboard™ works by pushing the pelvis forward and supporting the natural inward curve of the lumbar spine.
By applying light pressure over the knee, the Backboard™ can be easily bent into the desired shape and can be specifically tailored to fit the unique curvature of your back.
WHY IS GOOD POSTURE IMPORTANT?
Research has found that we now spend on average 13 hours a day sitting, whether that be at our desks, in our cars or on the couch.
The problem with sitting for long periods of time is that you naturally begin to slump in your chair, meaning the lumbar spine drops back, pushing out the natural curve - and this puts strain on the back muscles as they are being stretched.
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 the Backboard™ can help.
The Backboard™ works by pushing the pelvis forward and helping to put the correct curvature in the spine. This encourages you to sit upright in the correct position and improve your seated posture.
EASY TO ADJUST AND CAN BE TAILORED TO YOUR BACK
There are a wide variety of lumbar supports on the market today, in all shapes and sizes. This is because everyone has different requirements depending on the shape of their lumbar curve. This is what makes the Backboard™ Mini so unique.
