Great for my back!

by

This product is to correct your posture but I find it quite effective in reducing pain in my back. The weight from my upper body, which normally goes to my back, is distributed to the knee areas so you don't feel the same amount of weight or pressure in your back. I try not to sit too long but when I need to, I use it to take weight pressure off my back. By the way, I only weigh 100 lb. but still feel the upper body weight. I carry this handy "trainer" to everywhere I go.More > < Less

Confirmed Back Relief

by

BetterBack has a great product. I just received the Portable Posture Trainer. It's compact and easy to use. Plus, as soon as I put it on, I could feel the difference. My issue is not so much with my back, but the outside of my thigh, and it felt better almost immediately. I'm considering getting one for work too.More > < Less

Really helpful in learning how to sit better

by

As a person who has worked on her posture and biomechanics for years, I find this HUGELY helpful. I know how to sit, but this device helps me hold that proper sit for long periods and develop the inner strength and awareness to hold it without the device!

I actually have bought additional ones for family members because I think it is so helpful.

Caveat: my family members are able to use it for short periods as they learn how to sit better, so that may be your experience. I did not have that issue and can sit with it on for hours!

About BetterBack

Portable Lumbar Support

BetterBack combines a posture trainer and an ergonomic support in one flexible and portable design. It’s the creation of Maker Katherine Krug, who worked her way through just about every type of treatment trying to quell sciatic back pain when she finally had her a-ha moment. Instead of focusing on pain relief, she realized she needed to practice proper alignment to feel better.

When friends kept borrowing Katherine's early prototype of BetterBack—consisting of recycled plastic containers and a whole lot of tape—she knew others would appreciate a posture trainer and lumbar support that helps you sit up correctly.

BetterBack helps stabilize your pelvis to get your spine into the proper (natural) alignment. The lightweight device is adjustable and cushioned for comfort as it turns any seat into an ergonomic one, even a stool or bench. Try a 15-minute session each day to work on sitting up straight, so all of you can feel better.
