The Humantool is for those who want to beat back pain by getting fitter rather than by supporting their back. It's a modern ergonomic approach for reversing the damage that static ergonomic sitting is known to cause.
We find sitting on The Humantool (without touching the backrest) causes the spine to balance and micro-move, and hence to be exercised. Plus it works brilliantly for those for whom walking is relatively comfortable but sitting is not.Human Tool Saddle Seat
The Mobiliser System is the best we've seen for tackling long standing back pain.
MBT shoes can change the way most of us use our muscles as well as reduce shock forces to the entire skeletal system. Unlike most conventional training shoes that only support and cushion your feet, the unique lever spring action of MBT's challenge the core strengthening muscles to be more active.
Please Note: MBT's are only available for Online Purchase.

Our Ekornes Stressless models are carefully selected by our experts to combine comfort and spinal health.
This is the best chair we've ever sat in, and the one many Backinaction staff use around our tables and in front of our computers.
The key to all good chairs is movement, forwards-and-backwards, side-to-side, up-and-down, the more movement the better. We call this active sitting. Once you achieve active sitting your core muscles will become stronger and you will find your posture will improve overnight, joints will be less stiff, and you will become more focused and have higher concentration levels.Varier Actulum

You've probably never sat on anything quite like it - we think this might be up there with the most fun of all the chairs ever invented.
Worried about how little exercise you do in a day or how little movement you have in your life?
Enter the Aeris Swopper - it's hard to explain in writing just how much movement (and joy) this chair brings. It's not easy to start with as you have to allow your fitness to improve - but boy it is worth it.
After 25 years working with back pain sufferers we knew what was needed. We used that experience to create a mattress that has been a huge success over the last 6 years.
Supportive, pressure relieving but also easy to move around on.
Why is it so successful? Not just because of the quality of support, but because it's important for back pain sufferers (and actually everyone else too) to be able to vary positions throughout the night. Changing position helps to reduce inflammation, decrease joint stiffness and alleviate nighttime aches.
The Backinaction Mattress is made of carefully selected layered foam that allows pressure relief, support AND easy movement.
Forget what you know about kneeling chairs unless you love them :-)
