We generally cover cord cutting, affordable internet access, and other related topics here at Grounded Reason. However, I was recently approached by the inventor of a new wearable medical device designed to alleviate lower back pain. They gave me a demo device and asked me to try it out.
Writing for Grounded Reason, I tend to be sitting . . . a lot. If I’m not writing, I’m usually watching new shows online or reviewing new and updated streaming services. Ultimately, this results in a lot of lower back pain, so I figured I would give it a try.
The device is called the LumbarAir from Backtastic. It’s a wearable device that fits inside LumbarAir T-Shirts. that inflates to provide consistent lumbar support while sitting. The video below shows how the product works.
A Discrete Wearable Pillow for Back Support
The LumbarAir System is essentially an inflatable air pillow attached to a micropump that fits into LumbarAir T-shirts and camisoles. At the touch of a button, the micro-pump allows you to inflate the air pillow within your LumbarAir undershirt while you are sitting. The device is only 6 ounces and fits nicely into a pouch within the shirt. The image below shows the micropump.
Before you stand up, simply press another button and the air pillow deflates. The pillow goes completely flat and no one can even tell you are wearing a device to provide back support. The image below shows the LumbarAir camisole being worn. It’s completely undetectable.
The image below provides an idea of what the T-shirt looks like.
There are a lot of products being pitched to provide lower lumbar support and relieve lower back pain. However, most I’ve encountered are either too cumbersome or just don’t work. Ultimately, the best solution is to use a pillow on the small of my back for support.
However, a pillow isn’t always available. The LumbarAir solves that problem. It’s always with you. Check out the video below to see how it works.
