Transval Back Buddy Senior
Chronic back and neck pain is a pervasive and costly problem in the industrialised world. The scope of this problem continues to grow despite our best efforts. By some estimates prevention of back pain and neck pain cost man billions of dollars per year.
Exertion and excessive load in either of these areas resulting from poor posture and lack of muscle support combined with the inevitable ageing process produces pain.
The common causes of lower and upper back pains are – faulty sitting posture, Ageing, Long drives, Poor physical conditioning, Pregnancy, Poor lifting techniques, Long computer hours, and over weight.
Prolonged periods of constrained posture characterised by static loading of muscles. Under such conditions blood circulation may be reduced, preventing the proper supply of nutrients to the muscles and removal of muscle activity by-products, leading to rapid fatigue and pain.
Transval Back Buddy Senior is the only orthopaedic appliance which is ideal for preventing and treating back pains arising in the inter-vertebral disc, the soft shock absorber between the bones of the back or in the spinal facet joints, the knuckle sized joints that link the bones together along with shoulder and cervical spine pains.

Easily portable, light weight and can be fitted to any chair, at workstation, in car, at home with the help of a heavy-duty elastic and buckle.
Adjustable lumbar pillow, with Velcro is to be fitted as and where extra cushioning is required.

Cervical pad is adjusted in such a way that the neck has an additional support.
There is a general orthopaedic agreement that in sitting the myoelectric activity decreases. ” Back Care ” inclination has been found to be very important, with the EMG levels decreasing. By allowing keeping proper angle, which is little above 90 degree, ” Back Care ” considerably reduced weight on spine and lumbar portion of body, due to which myoelectiv activity not only decreased in the lumbar region, but also in the thoracic and cervical areas of the spine.
Who Can Use
Due to change in working habits, and work scenario the human body which was active at once, is force to sit still for longer and longer periods each day. Prolonged periods of constrained posture characterised by static loading of muscles, under such conditions blood circulation may be reduced, preventing the proper supply of nutrients to the muscles and removal of muscle activity by-products, leading to rapid fatigue and pain. Today many people experience pain and discomfort at work, driving, and sitting. Good seating can reduce the risk of stress and injury to muscles and joints, and ease the kind of back trouble that arises due to poor posture.
Incorrect chair and desk, poor angle of monitor and TV, increased hours in one position, where the neck is not properly supported are the greatest contributors of cervical pains. The spinal cord is the most delicate tissue in the entire body. Even minor damage to the spinal cord cannot be repaired. Unlike low back pain, in which waiting to seek treatment may prolong the pain but usually doesn’t cause any further damage, untreated spinal cord compression can lead to irreversible damage. Exercise and proper rest can ease the pain but can not change our modern life style. Required is a tool to help.
When it comes to supporting your back and neck properly with the least amount of muscle strain, ” Back Care ” is the perfect tool.
