BackJoy SitSmart is an innovative sitting device that naturally relieves back pain by optimizing your sitting posture. If you sit for long periods of time, posture support is key. SitSmart is a simple posture corrector that restores the natural curvature of the spine to relieve lower back pain. Without SitSmart, your muscles flatten and tense under your body weight, causing pain.
Hi, i’m Pete withBackjoy. And we’re going to talk about the new Sitsmart Posture Core today. And really it’s all about seating. When we think about seating and how poorly we sit, our bodies really weren’t made to sit. We sit over 8 hours a day. And it causes a lot op pain and discomfort. The Posture Core really helps with that. Here’s Rachel sitting on it now. I’m going to have Rachel get up. And when you sit up straight like your mother told you to, you have good posture.
But then when you sit like we normally do, your pelvis goes to posterior tilt, your spine straightens, shoulders forward. We get into a slouched position that causes a lot discomfort in the lower back, shoulders and neck. Just a bad way to sit, but that’s how most of us sit. Think about taking a deep breath and the amount of oxygen you bring in. When you try to take a deep breath in a slouched position, you can’t do it. Sitting up straight, much easier to take a deep breath. Oxygen helps your whole body run better.
Another great feature of the Sitsmart Posture Core is the soft EVA. If you’re sitting on your sit bones, medically they are your ischial tuberosity. But it’s those two bones that hurt when you’re sitting up straight. So what we do to get off of those bones quite often is we just let the pelvis fall, just to roll off those bones.
The other key feature is the size. We’ve made the Sitsmart large enough to where it fits up to 300 pounds, so it fits all body types. What it does is cup the glutei, pick the pelvis up and allows anyone sit more comfortably.
