The Backpod and its home program were developed in New Zealand specifically to counter the huge upsurge of pain and headache in people hunching over computers and smartphones.
This makes the Backpod ideal for all hunching problems. It also stretches tight rib cage joints really effectively, so is ideal for several conditions involving these.
Why the Backpod?It's practical New Zealand health technology. We genuinely don't think there's anything better for stretching out a hunched, tightened upper back, and nothing else at all that will effectively stretch tight rib joints.
So, the Backpod and its simple home program are specifically designed to pull you back towards pain free perfect posture - see our PERFECT POSTURE page for why posture is important. The Backpod itself is an international award-winning Classification 1 medical device. Lying back on it uses your upper body weight to stretch out a tightened, stooped middle and upper back, and tight rib cage. See THE BACKPOD page for more detail.
We built it to counter the iHunch, which means it’s also ideal for all groups and medical conditions with problems from bending forward. So it’s for all computer users and especially for laptop, tablet and smartphone users, dentists, chefs, surgeons, bank tellers, gamers, hairdressers, builders, nursing mothers, drivers, doctors, anyone with ankylosing spondylitis or Scheuermann’s disease (Scheuermann’s osteochondritis), surgeons, nurses, cyclists, slouching adolescents - and anyone else who’s getting sore and hunched.
