Upright Back Posture Device Study

2018-12-14 02:26:19 | BioPortfolio


This is a randomized controlled study to determine if patients between the ages of 18-50 years, with posture related low back pain, who use the Upright device demonstrate improved pain control and self perception of posture compared to those given standard ergonomic instruction.


Back pain is a common complaint among students. For many, back pain is directly related to poor posture while sitting and standing. Those who spend prolonged time sitting in poor posture often develop muscular imbalances leading to tight chest muscles and weakness in back muscles. The Upright system is a device which helps provide a sensory reminder to alert users when their posture is poor. The purpose of this study is to determine if patients who use the upright posture device demonstrate improved pain control and self perception of posture when compared to those given standard ergonomic instruction.
