This product recently featured on the Good Morning Show and on One News in New Zealand where the developer Steve August New Zealand physio talked through some of the issues kiwis face with their posture when they sit at a desk all day.
It's tremendously unlikely. The inner transparent electric-blue core of the Backpod is made of polycarbonate, and is so strong you could probably drive a small car over it. The apple-green flexible outer is made of Santoprene which is a surgical rubber-type material approved for use in hospitals - it will just bounce back again from any impact.
Who would this be good for:
Anyone who sits at a desk all day for work
Students studying and hovering over their phone all day.
People with a hunch or poor posture
People who experices upper back pain, neck or chest pain.
Makes a great gift for dads, brothers or boyfriends who are hard to shop for.
Buy now for yourself or give as a gift to anyone that sits or hunches over a desk or phone all day.
