Thanks! Good product. Kind people.
This really is a marvellous invention. I've being using it now for a month or two and its good - very good. Very comfortable to wear from the start (took me a while to get the hang of putting it correctly in place), and the benefit was immediate. Now, two months on I naturally tend to sit all the time with a much better posture. Correction - infinitely better posture. And my general health has gone up a notch or two as well.
At first glance you may think its an ungainly device that could take a place in bondage wear. But it ain't (at least I don't think so). I have knobbly knees so I have to readjust the knee pads every ten minutes or so but that is very easy to do and takes a second or two. When knees are comfortable again the sitting position is so very, very comfortable and at ease. Hunching shoulders goes out the window immediately. Curving, healthy back posture arrives also immediately.
I can't rate this item highly enough - really has transformed me.
I am so pleased with this product. It is so simple in its design yet so supportive for my back. I love that you don't have to plug it in, recharge it or buy replacement supplies, just sit with it and feel the support. Great design. Thank you for it
I had abdominal surgery two years ago. The open procedure cut all my major abdominal muscles, and even as I healed, they were never as strong. That's when my back started to ache. Rest relieved it, but who has time to lie down during the day? Bought this a couple months ago after seeing it on Shark Tank. Easy to use. Started using it daily while at my computer, which is no longer than an hour a day. I am pain free. My posture is so good and I am carrying myself better. Get one!! LOVE MINE!!
I absolutely love my BetterBack! I had it on my back within seconds and am really impressed by how great it makes my back feel. Thanks for designing such a great product!
Just a word of Thank You for the BetterBack and overall service.
The BetterBack product has exceeded my expectation; excellent execution and design and most importantly, IT WORKS!
Secondly, my experience ordering something thru KickStarter/Indiegogo has not been fantastic, with BetterBack this has been though fantastic.
I love it!!! I've had it for 3 days. I really do feel much better! Thanks for designing this.
As one who has been on pain pills for low back pain for over 10 years, I put this device, along with my heating pad, at the top of the list of things that I have tried that have ever made a difference. I love it!
I'm a fan! It occasionally bothers my knees.
Very pleased with BetterBack. My only comment is that as an older person, the knee pads aren't cushioned enough. I have wrapped them in additional foam material.
Product is wonderful!! Minus one star because the idea/product design is 20 years old, but the BetterBack promotions all make it sound like this is their original idea/concept. Quite disingenuous. There have been numerous similar products on the market for years. The BetterBack version appears to be of better, if not the best, quality, however. The price also corresponds
Truly amazing product....I have limited mobility and sit a lot during the day....I have a weakened lower spine due to arthritis and use a walker ....this product has given me much relief. The product itself is innovative and packaged beautifully making is portable. You won't be disappointed with this purchase!
@getBetterBack You're very welcome 😊 Thanks from my back, the improvement of my posture over the last months is uncanny 🙆🏻♂️
I've had a herniated cervical disc causing arm pain. I'm working on improving my posture and this product helps. It's comfortable and easy to use.
I love it... this is my second one.
This is GREAT.
I had ordered BetterBack and the USPS left it at my door and it went missing. I tried tracking it down but It could not be found. BetterBacks customer service was great, they sent me a replacement right away I do a lot of photo retouching as a photographer. I have a standing desk but I still sit half the time. BetterBack is fantastic! I can’t believe how well it works. I feel myself sitting up straighter and with a lot less stress on my back. I couldn't be happier.
The Customer service is really nice and patiently.
my BetterBack was delay 1 month by UPS,and no one know where is it.
finally, the official resend another BetterBack to me and i received it about 19 days.
so you can rest assured to order.
Useing BetterBack let me feel comfortable when i work in office.
it easy to use and support your back.
although it delay a long time,it still worth to buy and use.
I already have and love the product, I just needed another for a holiday gift. The process was easy.
Got a few funny looks from co-workers the first couple days, but worth the ridicule. I am a hard core slumper and sloucher that sits in front of the computer most days. I used to have terrible back and neck pain, but I have been using my BetterBack since February 2016 and have no more issues. Thank you!!
Website is good! Product is great, at least the one time I used it. I just had hip replacement surgery, so I'll wait a couple of months to really test it out.
This product really does work. I'm so glad to have found it.
feels good great for the office.
Is ok. Provides a good reminder, but like other users, I find that the knee discomfort is an issue.
An awesome product, great for car rides (as passenger).
I just got mine today and I've been wearing it for 1/2 hour. The minute I put it on, the ache in my back was relieved. I mean instantly. It's too soon to know the long term effects, but if it's anything like my first 1/2 hour, I'll be raving about this thing and sharing it with anyone who'll try it!
Everything is great, specially the positivity. I think i should be getting this email after i get my Better Back.
My order arrived much sooner than expected, thank you!!!
This thing really works. I do allot of sitting at the computer with my job. Holds you in the position you should be in and at the end of the day I am much less fatigued. Definitely recommend this product.
I have been wearing it for 2 days now, sitting at the office, and I feel that my knees are hurting from the pressure applied by BetterBack.
Overall I am pleased with the product. I think that it is taking some adjusting and getting used to because my lower back posture was so poor. However, I can notice a change in my posture while sitting. Thanks!
It is unbelievable. It works great. My husband tried it, too, and pronounced that it was very good for the back in making you sit up strait. I am excited that a small invention such as this can make such a difference and is very inexpensive. Good luck in all your endeavors.
I can't fault this device and I don't want to, so I haven't. I use it regularly at my office desk and it definitely helps me maintain good posture. I really feel the difference when I'm at home and have foolishly left it at work. Should buy another but I'm too cheap.
Only received the product this week, but for years I've had lower back pain especially after sitting. Betterback was immediate relief from the constant pain. Right now I am sitting cross-legged in bed & my back still feels good!
My daughter has back pain, but NOT LOWER back pain, and she couldn't feel any difference at all.
Thanks for the relief! I am taking mine to Church with me & letting friends that I know suffer with back pain try it out.
I've been using it for a few days, and can already feel a difference in my back, leg and hip. While I was rather sore on day 2, I'm thinking that may have been to adjusting to the corrections in my sitting posture. I am very happy I made this purchase,
So far, so good. Seems to be effective.
Physical therapy, exercises to strengthen my core, stretching, and even an occasional zap from a TENS unit had been helpful with decreasing my chronic pain, but I kept sabotaging all the benefits with my lousy posture. This is the last piece of the puzzle!
I love it.
Works just perfect. Great design. No Flaws.
I think it does help but I can't keep it on for very long because it bothers me. I keep trying different positions.
I ordered my Better back online after watching Shark Tank and seeing how it worked. I have suffered sciatica pain a couple of times over the last three years and will try anything that I think may help from having a recurrence. Each flair up has lasted from 6 to 8 months. I am basically using the better back when sitting at my sewing machine and feel that it helps me from leaning over my machine and sitting UP better. So far so good.
Still trying to get use to remembering to keep it near me when sitting around the house. So far from the use it has made me more conscious about sitting up straight. Still a work in progress.
I feel straighter and stronger already:)
Love this product!! Hands down the best money I have ever spent!!! I drive about 60k miles a year for work (worst thing you can do for a herniated disc) and this product really helps to keep positive posture while sitting in the driversseat for so long!...I hope Better Back can come up with an idea so you can use this product while driving down the road and still be able to move your leg to hit the pedals other
I just got my Betterback and it is wonderful! The quality of the workmanship is much better than I expected, it's very well made. And...it works! As soon as I set it up on my work chair, my back felt better. I love it and will be buying more for holiday for friends who need it.
My coworkers and I work pretty long hours, and honestly, many people struggle with our posture because of it. I came across the Better Back, fell in love, and since have had 2 other coworkers order it. I honestly miss it when I'm not wearing it, that's how much better it makes me feel.
Betterback doesn't make any efforts as you had said in your video but could Betterback cause hyperlordosis due to put ahead our own back ?
Extremely easy to navigate the website
I cannot use this. I want to return. I have it all packed up
But you did not include paper work for how to return.
Please can you send me info. Thank you
O my God, the better back is without words, I have a L4,5 disc in my lower back out, And for years I been in pain, And seem like this past year the pain & stiffness was getting worse. The the day the better back arrived, I instantly, instantly know it was going to work, because as I begin to pull the other leg strap and my back started to pull up in place, it was as if the better back was straightening and supporting, & locking everything in my back the way it is support to be. I kept it on everywhere I seat, And I use it everyday, I'm getting to the place to take it out with me as a conversation piece, So people can know there is something out there that will give you release.
P.S Love It
I'm so excited to try my #BetterBack I received it today and in these short 10 min I had it on I can say I already love it @getBetterBack
A little hard to get the hang of it but I can feel my back & neck pain ease -- right out of the box!
Very easy to purchase. Learned about BetterBack from a friend who sent me a referral link. Delivery was very fast and I loved the packaging.
10/10 would buy again
I ordered Better Back and got it in less than five days. As soon as I put it on, I was very pleased. I'm obese and working very hard to change my lifestyle. In addition to changes in diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes, it's even difficult to sit correctly. I'm very happy that Better Back FITS ME and feels great. Thanks! I thought $59.99 was a deal but I definitely appreciate the coupon and handwritten (seemingly) note. It's a nice touch.
How in the world is this Better Back so amazing and how in the world had I not heard of this before? I have been in pain for over a decade now and this is the very first time I have found relief. I just cannot believe it. Color is coming back to my world.
I have many problems when it comes to back pain thats why I was so excited about the product , I bought many products before to support my back but many of them didnt work well for me .
in conclusion this is a great product Im extremely happy and satisfy with it and it feels like its made with love
I'm one hour in, having just opened the package that came in the mail today and trying it out, and already I'm getting relief! I do data entry work so I sit at a computer for 9 hours a day. In the first hour of wearing betterback my spine has adjusted in the exact spots my chiropractor has to continually work on. The residual effect of sitting so long every day with bad posture is that my shoulder slump and, coupled with looking down at personal electronic devices, by bed time my neck and shoulder ache making it difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep. I can barely wait to see what a difference wearing BetterBack makes today.
@WomensRunning I have @getBetterBack really makes a difference-would recommend.i sit better&have better posture when standing&walking.
I love this product
I work for a small software company and I purchased BetterBack for one of my employees who often complains about lower back problems. The first impressions are all positive and I will likely come back to purchase more. The health and well-being of our employees is very important to me. The product is easy to use, has good quality and the instructions are clear.
Sitting all day at a computer affected my posture & sometimes back pain. The belt from @getBetterBack helped to fix this problem. #review
I watched the Shark Tank show and ordered immediately. It arrived within a few days. I am wearing it right now. I makes my back feel great.
I do have to use another velcro (luggage) strap to keep my knees together. I can't keep my knees close enough to use the clip but it works great!
Amazing! This device is so well made.
I had ordered my Better Back on 7-23-16 & had not received it by 9-6-16, So I sent an email inquiring about WHEN to expect it.
I got a response quickly and the matter has been resolved. It was sent 3 day priority USPS & I was thanked for my patience.
I GOT MY BETTER BACK -- YAHOO!!!!!!! I have been trying to figure out the most comfortable position to wear it --getting better.
I did have it too low on my back and the zipper side was hurting me. I just watched the video last night ---- VERY, VERY HELPFUL !!
MUCH BETTER THAN THE PAPER INSTRUCTIONS !!!!!!!!!!! Also in the video it SHOWED HOW TO shorten the knee strap by just
PULLING UP the adjustment on each side. I had been trying to manipulate it by pulling the strap manually & trying to shorten it that way.
THE VIDEO SHOWED ME HOW TO DO IT --- SO EASILY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm still trying to get the best position for me --- not there yet. Still hopeful!!!
I would give customer service agents a five star rating
The only thing I might like too see is a phone number so you can speak with a live person....I am old school so that would be nice if one was provided
Katherine, As a disabled veteran, I have suffered many pains for many years. Low and mid back pains from fractured vertebrae are some of the worst. For the last 15 years I have had a desk job that increasingly doesn't allow me much time to get up and move around. Pain medications coupled with muscle relaxers make focusing during work difficult, so I don't use them as often as I should. I have always known they weren't a cure, but the spinal curvature developed over many years of poor ergonomic positioning at my desk made things unbearable at times. I was introduced to your product by my love of the Shark Tank TV program. Realizing the special orders that had finally gone in for a standing desk and a kneeling chair were not going to come to fruition before my retirement, I decided to try your Better Back support device. I am no one that you could even pay to have me endorsement of a product I didn't approve of 100%. I have to tell you I have found your product to meet all hopes and expectations. It has made work comfortable without meds; it makes watching television at home something I can do sitting down again. I used to have to kneel on the floor when my back began to tighten and throb. If you design a way to make it functional while driving, you will have struck gold! My position at an Army hospital puts me in contact with many people Military-wide who not only can benefit from your device, but even medical providers who can study and then recommend it. Thank you again for all you did to get your great product to the market. And I have to add the fact that I appreciate you not "going cheap" in the manufacturing. This is an extremely well-made device that will last me years! Steven Bledsoe, MBA
My back is installs feeling better, I love this product
Lovin it so far! I work from the computer all the time and have a standing desk, but this helps a ton when I get too tired and decide to sit down for a while. Great purchase :)
Excellent product, quality build, and does exactly as advertised. It is somewhat limiting in the way it has to be worn, as even leaning forward defeats the back support. It definitely encourages improved posture. For long typing sessions at the computer this product is a huge help.
Impressed by the product and by the helpful emails sent to me after purchasing BetterBack. Loved the packaging as well.
Great experience and I love the product.
Fantastic on a plane!!!
I love my @getBetterBack - it eases back #pain and allows you to sit effortlessly in perfect #posture. Get $5 off: https://t.co/FuxaFmK1Ab
I was so impressed by your quick fulfillment, extraordinary quality and miraculous results! Thank you!
I have osteoporosis and my posture has gotten significantly worse as I have aged. When I saw BetterBack on SHark Tank I figured I had nothing to lose by trying it. I can honestly say after only 3 weeks I already feel the difference. It feels great for the 15 minutes a day I use it but I also find myself wanting to stand straighter and sit straighter and consciously thinking about it. Thank you.
I love BetterBack. After having it for only three days I'm already feeling a slight change in my posture. I would highly recommend BetterBack to anyone. Be well and thank you
I love how it felt to sit up straight and also let go of my tight back muscles. Thank you!
So far I love it. Very supportive. Has been great for my posture!
I've only used it 30 minutes at a time for 4 days and I feel a difference in my upper back.
@getBetterBack just received my betterback-feels amazing.Can finally sit without slouching.Will be buying more for christmas gifts! #posture
First day with @getBetterBack. Can certainly feel it.
This is the best purchase I have ever made. I work in front of the computer for more than 8 jours a day and have tried multiple straps and techniques to help relieve my shoulder and back pain. Nothing ever worked. Until I got my better back. The moment I put in on I felt the difference and my posture straightened and I could feel less pain,
Everyone should get this product!!
It definitely makes you sit straight. It's comfortable enough (correction always means a little discomfort), and it's better than other products that have tried to do similar things over the years. I've been using it for hours at a time, and it's fine.
What I don't know is whether this really translates into a healthier back and better posture overall. For instance, I often lean back and put pressure on the straps. At that point I'm not using my own muscles to hold me in that position, I'm just using Better Back. Maybe the thing is do is to not move your body in a way that lets the straps really tighten.
Also, I'd like to know what a PMR doctor thinks about this. When I saw a chiropractor in the video I just thought "goodness, they couldn't even find a single doctor that would give this a thumbs up." I'd much rather see a doctor with some reputation on the line endorsing this.
Really pleased so far, although I am getting some knee pains from using it - I'm not sure if it's me using it incorrectly or the product, but there are no tips on this in the inlay card provided - will check out Youtube video on site to see if that helps
This was a total impulse buy for me and I couldn't be happier with it! I have had back pain for years and this really does make it feel instantly better the second you put it on. I use it all the time and though you do look a little ridiculous, it is so worth it because your back feels amazing! It's not a cure for the back pain but while I'm wearing it it is a huge improvement- would definitely recommend this to anyone!
Best product ever! Has helped me already in the first week!
It is not a device I can manage or live with . Very difficult for me to use it and request a return ASAP.
Excellent device. Keeps my back from becoming uncomfortable on plane trips.
My only request is to have a strong, secure clip attached to the handle so that it can be clipped to my carry-on bag, rather than having to take up space inside my carry-on bag.
Excellent product. I work from home and have to sit at my computer. I do get up every hour, but while I am sitting I find that this product definitely has helped me to be more aware of my posture and it also provided relief from the strain I was having on my lower back. Highly recommend!
@getBetterBack Thanks so much for creating a product that will save my back for many travels to come!
Let me start off by telling you that I've struggled with bulging disc (L4/L5) for the past 25 years. The pain has been pretty bad at times and consequently, I've tried all sorts of tools and gadgets. Some work better than others and some were just plain stupid. Yet, I would still purchase them so that I can determine if they would help with my pain. I was also skeptical with the betterback product but like I said before, I'll try anything to get relief! As soon as I tried it out, I knew instantly that this was the real thing! I wear it religiously while at my desk and I cannot travel on the plane without it (I travel every week so the plane ride comfort's a must). Thank you Katherine for taking the time to develop such as awesome product. Best of luck to you in your quest to help others!
Though I have a desk job, I have not used the better back a lot - only when I know that I will be sitting for long periods without a break and want to achieve comfort and focus - have really found the device to be very comfortable and easy to use. I am much more aware of my posture at present. Purchased 3 so am now trying to convince my 23 year old daughter to try it - she sits all day while working at her accounting job and studies at night to achieve her designation. I look forward to her feedback.
I first purchased the Betterback for my husband David. He sits all day at the computer and has for 20 plus years and always complains about the cubicle world and back pain. When I received it I wanted to try it first to see how it worked and I LOVED IT! I was excited to see how he liked it. He tried it the same day and he also really liked how easy it was to use and how it felt on his back and helped his posture with very little work on his part. He was very pleased and will use it all the time. I told my daughter and son about it and asked them if they would like to try it and they both said yes as they have back pain sitting at the computer many hours a day as mortgage brokers. My son has tried it and LOVED IT so we hope to order one for him and now he will give it to his sister so she can try it and if she wants one we will order on for her too.
The Betterback is the first product that we have been so excited about once we received it. You have a golden product and we thank you for all your hard work in making this product available for a very reasonable price and look forward to each having our own soon.
Love the Betterback. Makes proper posture very easy and feels great to sit up straight without thinking about it. Have already recommended it to friends. Service was great in every way. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
BetterBack has helped my posture in a very little time, I find myself sitting up straight and standing with good posture even when I'm not using it.
Easy to slip on. Effortless to wear. Great zip pouch. Can tell a difference in my posture after wearing it!
@getBetterBack Just tried BetterBack... Feels great and supported! #uppernote #backpain #betterback #forgettingsucks
Don't know if this product actually worked. Still waiting on back pain results
Takes a little while getting used to 'putting this on'. My chair is horrible and this definitely gives relief to my lower back. I have to laugh everytime I see it hanging over the back of another chair. It resembles a very small saddle with funny looking stirrups! Glad I saw it on Shark Tank and purchased it.
Irish in mid-MO mid-USA.
I love your product. I saw it on Shark Tank and went searching for it. I am an online high school teacher and spend about 12 hours per day on the computer. My back was sore for over six weeks during the summer. After wearing it only once for a couple of hours, my back did not hurt at all. Thank you.
Like the simple, compact design and quality of construction. After first session noticed the "training" of the back muscles the device promotes. Enjoyed the purchase experience, the outstanding seller communications and the folksy, friendly style Katherine promotes. While paying a shipping fee, expected the product to arrive quicker that it did. Took 10 days from order to processing to shipment to receipt from California to the Midwest. Best wishes with your companys growth. Great product!!
Great product, solid build quality, fair price and prompt delivery.
I had a fabulous experience with the customer service I received from BetterBack. I had contacted them at first after getting a Facebook code that didn't work, and they followed up with me within a day. No complaints here. And my order arrived exactly on the day it said when I got my tracking code. Happy customer!!
Bought @getBetterBack - surprised by quality design, seems to work and way less awkward than I thought it would be https://t.co/AyRj5r6wXR
I love my BetterBack and it does everything that's promised. VERY well constructed. Thank you so much for this product! I gave my coupon code to my friend, Beth Isherwood. She said she was going to order one also.
Helps with pain
I knew I had bad posture, but I didn't know how to fix it. When I saw BetterBack on Shark Tank, I knew I had to try it. I can instantly feel the difference in my back and shoulders when putting it on. It's great for both sitting with feet on the floor and cross legged too. My bedroom is small and has no room for a proper chair, so BetterBack does what no bed backrest can do and comfortably supports my back when sitting in bed to watch TV or meditate. It has so many more uses than what's promised, so I'm glad I have it and will continue to regularly use it.
Love it! Well made and very compact to travel with.
Not easy to adjust doesn't stay on well
Can really tell a difference after 5 days.
I love it! I have serious spine degeneration, stenosis and arthritis and have trouble sitting for any length of time. With BetterBack I am more comfortable when I do have to sit for longer periods. I took it to the office with me and let my boss try it out. He love it! I'm going to buy him one too. Great product. Very happy. Exceeded my expectations. Great work KK and the team at BetterBack. Thank you. Debra
It's okay, but it is not as comfortable as I'd hoped it would be. I'll keep trying to use it and hope that my enthusiasm for it grows.
ORDERED ON INTERNET-SHIPPED TIMELY-BUT HATE PRODUCT. HARD TO USE AND CANNOT USE WITH MY ARTHRITIC KNEE-TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY AND WHEN YOU LIVE ON SOCIAL SECURITY-YOU REALLY CAN'T AFFORD TO WASTE MONEY
I had no problems ordering or receiving my Better Back product!
the knee pads either slip off or dig in too much.
@getBetterBack Life Savers
Loving the product after a week! And as a business owner of a branding/website boutique, I applaud the beautiful & clean brand and website!!! :)) Great job!!
I am happy with my BETTER BACK but I never received an email telling when it was going to arrive. I got a payment confirmation which said you will be receiving an email telling you when it will arrive. I never did get an email.
Did as advertised, will talk this product up.Meeting with chiropractor to show him and perhaps he will tell his patients about it.Nice job. F.W.H.
The day I received it, put it on. It felt amazing. I Love It. Has my back like it's supposed to be. I'll recommend it to anyone who sits at computers for a long period of time.
Very easy to use and website very intuative
No complaints except the discount wasn't applied as I requested. The one from SHARKTANK had expired, i was told. Another one was offered but I couldn't seem to access it. That was a little disappointing. Perhaps 10% doesn't seem like a lot of savings to some people but with healthcare premiums and prescriptions costs soaring, every savings help. The product itself is a good and effective one. High quality and portable. I've even taken it to the movie theatre!
this is amazing. I can sit at my desk and not feel the strain on my lower back. Thank you for designing this.
I just received my Better Back and have been using it for about 15-20 minutes a day. I like the support it gives me. AT first, I couldn't get it to stop slipping off my knees, but I've since adjusted the fit and it feels fine. I hope it helps correct my poor posture with using it on a daily basis.
I'm not sure if I'm rating customer service or the better back that I bought, but both have been excellent and I plan on writing the producers of Shark Tank in the near future to tell them about my experience with two products that I bought on the same night. Unbelievably awesome! Thank you so much!!
Great item. Each time I use it my back is getting better. It's helping my posture too.
Thanks for making this!
Easy to order, the packaging was delightful, and I've been loving my Better Back.
When I put the BetterBack on for the first time, my sciatic pain immediately diminished. After wearing for 15 minutes, I removed it. My lower back felt better but felt as if it didn't have enough support. After more 15-minute 'treatments,' that feeling of not-enough-support went away. Now, after only a few days, my sciatic pain is almost gone. Because I've had sciatic pain for two decades, I'll continue wearing BetterBack every day so I can improve and maintain proper posture. I love it -- thank you!!!
So far so good! I have it setup at my desk in the office. Can definitely feel a tremendous difference and relief. Looking forward to the improved posture benefits!!
The product works as advertised. Delivered comfort and immediate relief to my back issues. My desk job takes a toll on my back and with the Betterback it makes my day a less stressful and more enjoyable experience. It is so awesome, I purchased a second one. One that stays in the office and the other for home use.
Great product. Great quality. A bit less communication between the sale and delivery, but OK.
your site was easy to navigate & customer service was also.
The better back device is great. I ordered one after watching Shark Tank. I was having a burning, searing pain in my shoulder if I sat at the computer too long for work. I used the better back daily and the shoulder pain has improved as well as my posture when sitting. This device is wonderful!!
I received my BetterBack product today after ordering it only 2 days ago. I was extremely impressed with the awesome packaging with a recyclable envelope…which is a great idea! I opened it, followed the very easy instructions, that were included. I unzipped the vase, expecting to remove the product, but it’s all self contained, which is perfect! I don’t have to worry about losing the case it came in. It’s constructed so well, that it should last a long time. It has automobile seat-belt type straps and strong quality clips. The knee pads are perfection. Comfortable, a good thickness in the padding and a good width. I am 75+ years and have had 3 major lower back surgeries, over the years. Osteoarthritis is not a stranger to my back. The minute I put this on, it relieved the pain that I normally suffer from, every day and I am sitting in correct posture. I will highly recommend this to all of my friends and family plus on my Facebook page. Congratulations on your success with the BetterBack. Well deserved!
After a week of use (±6 hours on-and-off each day at work), my back pain has been significantly reduced and my posture is improving. My only real gripe would be that the knee pads don't feel great when worn, but its a small price to pay for the benefits it provides. Thank you, BetterBack!
Adjusting the straps was a little trying but after I got it adjusted, it did give me good posture which felt so good for my back!!!
Received it today and love it already. It does work . Congrats on a great product
Hurts my legs and back ver uncomfortable
You might want to consider enlarging (elongate) the knee pad to make it wrap around the knee a little instead of the pad just sitting on the front part of the knee. That's what I find myself taking the most time to adjust. But other than that, the product is awesome.
I got the package today. It took me forever to adjust it. Every single detailed was twisted in an opposite direction. I had to open the site watch the video, then twist all locks in a different directions. However, once I put it right together I feel so comfortable then don't even want to leave my desk. I am spending at the computer desk at least 8-10 hours a day. So we will see, today is just first day.
Excellent product and service
BetterBack reminds me and supports me to sit straight. It has helped alleviate my lower back pain. But it doesn't solve the problem of head tilting (which a lot of people do nowadays tilting down to look at screens) so make sure your screen is at your eye level and elbow as close to 90degrees as possible to your keyboard so as to release your shoulders. BetterBack is sturdy and made of quality materials. I like how it's portable so I can use it anywhere in the house.
Didn't work for me. Too comberson. I am up and down many times from my desk and a Hassel to put back on. Made my knees go numb. Going to return
Today is the first day using BetterBack. While my back got tired from using it (muscles are completely weak), I felt so much better and less irritated. We purchased the BetterBack as I have been having many back issues throughout my pregnancy. I instantly felt relief on my sciatica. I just wish I had this two years ago while writing my dissertation! It's a quick and easy process to use. If you have horrible back issues, be patient because your muscles will get tired, but that's because they are not used to being in the proper upright position.
I have just received my BetterBack product today after an Amazon Prime purchase. Immediate impressions: clean, efficient packaging - recyclable - nice touch. Opening package: clean efficient instructions to go along with the product. The product: I grabbed it and thought it was a bag, it unzipped and was the actual product. I see strong proper construction where double seams should be, seat-belt type straps and heavy duty clips. The knee pads are perfect in width and thickness.
As an engineer I though of something like this ten years ago when camping and playing around with a rifle sling. Now, after Military service and a desk job seated for 8-10 hrs in a lab, yes i do get up, I need something like this properly made and efficient for use.
Thank you for creating a proper product, keeping it simple and effective from start to finish.
I have used BetterBack for a few days now, and I find it incredibly comfortable and easy to use. It converts any regular chair into and ergonomic dream. I often work out of coffee shops , and it has taken a toll on my posture. Now I will be bringing my better back with me; it is incredibly supportive and one of the best purchases I have ever made towards my health.
The BetterBack is wonderful. It offered immediate relief for me and it "forced" me into the proper seating posture. It takes some getting used to for long durations at the desk. I developed a cycle of sitting with it on then with it off and by the end of the day I didn't feel strained or fatigued in my lower back. I'm buying a second one for my home. As you guessed, the first one will stay in the office so that I don't have to transport it around.
So true! I started using BetterBack that I saw on Shark Tank...it actually works! @getBetterBack https://t.co/6sn5q4thJx
I'm loving @getBetterBack! My mom has struggled w/her back & has had extreme pain 2 sit or walk. This brings relief! https://t.co/UXsKrfvJ7d
I got this yesterday and immediately put it on. Oh what a relief it was!
I've had a spinal fusion, and 2 discectomies. I work as a Clinical Research Associate. I basically monitor early phase Oncology clinical trials for drug companies. This job involves a ton of sitting at a computer reading charts and verified data. I am sometimes sitting for 10-12 hrs a day. As a result I have one sore back at the end of a day.
This was easy to put on and I felt so supported! I'm going to wear it today while in my home office and will be packing it to take with me to Houston tomorrow. I want to share this with a group I am in on FaceBook called Clinical Research Memes. I just know that they'll be a ton of people seeking you out! I did see it on Shark Tank and immediately bought it on Amazon. Thank you, Thank you!
Week one of using @getBetterBack: while it hasn't radically changed my posture, I haven't felt back pain at all, great!
Wish there was an option to order two at a time on your website. I had to pay for shipping twice twice. Otherwise very happy. thanks,
Great product!!!! I have been working specifically on posture and movement for the last few years, and I have tried several products promoting posture. Better Back is one of the very few that truly delivers. I am 6'2" 190 pounds so the pressure around my waist took a couple times to get use to...it is worth it! It is very comfortable and you can tell your spine is in prefect alignment. My wife was not sure and did not try mine, so I purchased another one just for her. She recently tried it, and she loved it immediately! I would highly recommend!
I've had this product for a few months, now, and have used it to sit in front of my computer while working and during airplane travel.
I have used it during 3-4 hour plane rides in the cramped economy seats and it really helps make it more comfortable with how it braces and supports me. It can be a little cumbersome, at first, to get all the straps straight within the cramped confines, but this is becoming easier. After about 3 or 4 hours, my knees do tend to hurt a little bit, but I might need to learn to loosen the straps. Its compact size makes it easy to travel with. I might suggest putting zippers on both ends to make it easier to close.
I also notice that sometimes the piece that connects the straps between the legs does not always work well and one of the straps snaps out of it. This is a big part of how it helps with the bracing and support, so this can be annoying.
I didn't have a bad back but wanted to improve my posture while sitting in front of a computer etc. It has really helped me get strong in sitting posture. Now I am really aware when I am in good posture and when I am not so I know to straighten up. Thank you, I really appreciate this product.
I don't like it. It hurts my knees And. Each time you get up every thing falls off.
I want to return it.
I got my Better Back a few weeks ago but did not try it out right away.
My back (which has had issues for years....) started hurting more than normal today so I got the Better Back out in desperation.
Within 10 minutes of having it on, I started feeling better and when I took it off, the pain had diminished significantly 🙂
It is never going to heal my back issue but if it makes me more comfortable day to day, it is worth every penny. I may have to buy another one for work so I don't have to carry it to and fro.
Thumbs up from me all the way from Australia !!
This is a great product. Also quick shipping, even though I am in Indonesia. Thank you for giving your all in making and delivering this product! Just tried it today and I already know this would make a difference.
I am disappointed in the structure of the equipment because I wear a skirt to the office each day and the better back is not adequate for someone wearing a dress or skirt everyday. Unfortunately I have been unable to utilize this product. I would like a full refund.
This is a great tool. The first time I put it on I felt the muscles along my spine and neck start relaxing. It's great for the relief it provides while sitting but also for the training. Now when I'm in my car or somewhere I try to get into a position where my spine is stacked better which I got from using the BetterBack. Pretty cool.
I have a standing desk, but that hasn't relieved much of the back pain that I had been feeling. I didn't want to go to a doctor because I knew it was all on my sitting posture, and this is something that you need to sort it out by yourself and not with the help of pills. I also don't do any sports, so that doesn't help me either.
BB is pretty cool! It adjusts well, the material is solid and it really eased out the pain that I had been feeling. I think it's a great product, because:
- Easy to put
- Easy to carry around (one of the best features, as it commutes with me between home and office)
- Your knees support your back pretty well, even if you're using shorts (it's not that unconformable to wear without trousers)
- You feel so light after using it! I use it in the office and at home when I'm sitting at my kitchen table while working or just watching something on my tablet
Less positive (there's really nothing negative):
- BB says that it should go as far up your waist as possible. I find this uncomfortable
- After sometime it starts feeling uncomfortable on my knees
- It should have some sort of 2nd clip to keep your legs together, but the clip that comes with it helps oh so much!
The good that BB does to my back, outweighs by many orders of magnitude any of the lass positive points that I stated. I have it since three weeks, and I never had to annoying and constant during-the-day -and-after-working-day back pain. This is the real deal!
I go this for my mom who I noticed uses bad sitting posture and it gives me great relief that something like BetterBack can so effortlessly fix her sitting posture.
Although this product is made well and I was impressed at the way it is presented, it doesn't do much for me in the way of relief. I have been using it as directed and I find that if I don't get cramps in my Quad region, I get pain in my shoulders (when working on my laptop. I have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and unfortunately for the BB, I have to use my Shoulders more than usual while wearing this at my (what once was) my favorite chair.
Everytime I go onto the Oniegogo' site there is a new Gizmo for helping posture or back pain. I have since ordered the SpineGym at a substantially higher price than the BetterBack. I truly hope that it works better at helping me than this does.
Sadly, this product sets up easily and is accessible wherever you go. It just isn't very comfortable on my upper legs and I find I am constantly adjusting it.
Perhaps I should stop looking for a solution in these new gimmicks as it is costing me time, money and creates a bunch of dust collectors in my Home.
THIS THING IS BRILLIANT!!!!!!! Have barely taken it off at all at work since it arrived like 3 weeks ago!! Soooooo comfortable and my posture is immeasurably better than I thought it could ever be. BUY IT!!
just back from holidays and my Betterback was here waiting for me, I wasn't expecting it for a couple weeks yet for the delivery to ireland. wearing it right now, it certainly straightens ya up. 😉
Well I have just started using this product. I ordered it mainly because a good friend told me how her back has improved to the point that she no longer needs the services of her chiropractor. I have found after using it for only two days while sitting at my computer that it certainly does correct your sitting posture and actually feels very good while you are using it. I have had many years of bad back pain so I am certainly hoping that my pain will subside due to the use of this product. You might want to give it a try.
I knew "Better Back" through “Kickstarter” due to its popularity. I ordered it just for curiosity. This product is well made and has a design with a lot of details. When I put it on, I felt more comfortable and relaxed immediately (amazing!). There is a pressure against my lower back and forces me to sit up straight. Right now, I am wearing it every day while working on my project. I’ve been ordering items online for years and this is the first time I wrote a review for a product I brought. Great product! I will order one more "Better Back" for my best friend who has a back problem and I will recommend it to all my friends.
It has worked for me as advertised. I got it for my wife, but she doesn't sit still long enough for it to be of much use for her.
We are really like it,very nice very useful.
I usually am skeptical of the contraptions my husband buys on the Internet...but this time, I decided to try Betterback as I do suffer from low back pain and as I am getting older, my posture is getting worse by the day. First, the packaging is neat and compact. The product is simple and does not need to be assembled. Just kidding! I adjusted the straps ...and voila! It works! My back feels better and I have the impression that I am standing straighter. I use Betterback every time I can. So far so good! Hopefully it is for real and not an impression I have. I will recommend it to a friend of mine who has back problem too. Keep up the good work!
The best benefit is that it taught me how to sit properly in any seat.
For example on my last flight, I was squashed by my seat mate. I'm the size of an NFL linebacker and he made me look small.
I started to feel shoulder pain from how I was sitting.
But then I let my body go into the proper posture as it had been trained to do.
And the pain went away.
Just make sure to use it daily until your body forms the habit on its own.
1. Knee - I am wondering of the impact on using Betterback on the knees considering it is wrapped around them with "adjusted" pressure.
2. COD charge - I ordered BetterBack twice. Once off a crowdfunding site and there was no COD charge. I ordered one directly from your website and I got charge $20 on delivery! Almost 40% of the price!. Very disapointing and not sure why the different treatments.
I've been using BetterBack early in the day when I take my prayer/meditation time. The way it supports my back and strengthens the muscles carries on into the day, even after I'm no longer wearing it. I recently had hip replacement surgery, and the combination has me walking strong and tall!
BetterBack is helping my 17 year old daughter with a back injury. She wears it in class, while we are driving and during a flight. It stabilizes the back and relieves the pain. Great Product I am recommending it to all my friends.
very good product, comfortable and pleasant. would be better if it could also support the upper back. But it's a good start.
My husband and I were concerned for our posture and have been using the betterback for that purpose. I find it is very helpful, as does he, and it makes me more aware when I am not wearing it as well, so that it functions as a kind of training device as well. My daughter tried mine and now she has ordered ne and told me she finds it very helpful for her back. You are to be congratulated for coming up with this helpul, useful way to feel better and become more conscious as well.
I don't often review items but felt I had to in this instance. I received my Better Back a few days ago and I love it.
I’ve been suffering with back pain for so long and I was paying a fortune for chiropractic treatment and prescriptions for painkillers. I bought this largely out of desperation for a different solution although I was sceptical of how much difference it would make.
I feel so much better, it’s working beautifully. It’s making a big difference to my life and I am so pleased that I took a chance on it. Thank you so much!
my husband who has had chronic back pain for years is in love,love, love with the results. Yes on occasion now he has a problem or two, but back on better back and all is well. I cannot truthfully say I am experiencing the same results but I love the feeling when I am wearing it. I also sent one to my son (a DR) and he is loving it also. thanks
I was skeptical that this could help my posture, but it works instantly, and feels great. When I put it on, there is a nice pressure against my lower spine as I sit up straight. Besides the fact that it enables me to sit up straight, here are other things I like about the product
1. Very well made. I was concerned that I would break it by the force of my knees pushing against the straps, but the entire product is strong. Even the little clip that holds the two straps between the thighs together is made of very thick plastic. I really like the fact that it is made well.
2. There are two leather labels that say "up" sewn into the back pad. They are of a contrasting color, which lets me quickly see which side is up.
3. The device folds into itself and zips up so it is easily transportable. I have not used that feature yet, but it is clever.
4. Easy to loosen and tighten. Tightening is just pulling on the straps. The buckles have a nice big lip that let you easily loosen the straps, gradually.
5. The clip between the thighs is an excellent feature. Without this, you would be constantly trying to keep your legs from spreading apart, thus reducing the pressure on your back.
@getBetterBack ps - I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Its like a hug from an osteopath.
Going to take some weeks to arrive here in Germany :-(
