Where to buy

The Backpod: Lie back and treat yourself

Some of these Backpod suppliers will send Backpods outside their area - just click on an icon to see.  Delivery can be fast, from various Backpod depots around the world - they don’t all ship directly from New Zealand. 

The links from this page are all legitimate.  WATCH OUT for really expensive Backpods selling on eBay or Amazon.  They are try-ons using our Backpods and ads but with huge price tags.  They are not our suppliers and are nothing to do with us. 

If no luck getting a Backpod sent to your country, try getting a friend elsewhere in the world to send you one.  A Backpod in its box measures 215 x 70 x 150mm (8.5 x 3 x 6 inches) and weighs 570gm (1.25 pounds).  All Backpods are manufactured in Christchurch, New Zealand.

We don’t sell Backpods to every country in the world but we can to most of them. Order from this New Zealand site if they’re out of stock on your country's Amazon site. Or get a friend elsewhere in the world to buy you one.  Keep scrolling down for Amazon and other options.  Just email orders@sprightly.co.nz if you have any questions.

Reviews of the Backpod

 

Disclaimer: Used sensibly, the Backpod is safe for almost all common musculoskeletal conditions involving the upper back, middle back and neck.  It is entirely under the user’s control.  The stretch it provides can be graded with pillows under your head and/or a fluffy towel or two over the Backpod itself so that it’s just initially uncomfortable - this is all in the instructions. 

We do genuinely think that the Backpod does a better stretch for the thoracic spine and rib cage than anything else on the planet.  It is not possible to build a single product perfectly suited to every patient; however the Backpod and its home programme should benefit the vast majority of upper back and neck problems.  If problems or pain persist when using the Backpod or following its home program, see your doctor or other appropriate health practitioner.  The Backpod shouldn’t be used where there are wounds, recent surgery, infections, shingles or other skin lesions; bony fractures, cancer, or much osteoporosis - see pages 7&8 in the Backpod’s user guide on the BACKPOD page.
