Poor posture is one of the leading causes of neck and back pain in our modern society. No matter how much education you may recieve on how to correct your poor posture, or strengthen your postural muscles, it is still difficult to remember these recommendations during our busy lives.
The BackTone® is a device designed by an Occupational Therapist, and helps you to develop the ‘muscle memory’ for good posture via a small signal unit which is held between your shoulder blades and waist. It takes away the need for you to remember to straighten your posture by emitting a beep or vibration every time you slouch!
Straighten up and the signal stops.
Wear BackTone® over your clothes just once or twice a day for 20 minutes, and within a few weeks, you’ll have learnt great posture habits that can last you a lifetime.
CWRS Occupational Therapist’s have undertaken specialised training in the BackTone® which can be a useful adjunct to any hands-on treatment you may be receiving for symptoms of poor posture.
The Occupational Therapist will conduct an initial assessment to fit the BackTone®, provide you with an appropriate wearing regime and then provide one follow up visit 1-2 weeks later.
