- The Humantool is for those who want to beat back pain by getting fitter rather than by supporting their back.
- It's a modern approach to reversing the damage that static sitting is known to cause.
- Sitting on The Humatool (without touching the backrest) causes the spine to balance and micro-move, and hence to be excercised.
- It works brilliantly for those for whom walking is pretty comfortable but sitting is not.
The Mobiliser System is the best we've seen for tackling long standing back pain.

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.
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.
The BackInAction Mattress
- Installed for you with our 60 night trial.
- Available to test out for yourself in all our showrooms.
