Enjoy all the benefits of good posture - reduced back pain, increased attractiveness, and more energy - with Backbone.
Backbone is a smart posture brace that connects with our mobile app to help you keep your best posture at all times.
We all have that friend who seems fearless and invincible. We're talking about the friend that’s always posting about bungee-jumping over waterfalls and fire-walking on burning coals. For us, that friend's name is Quest. So when Quest told us in 2015 that he had been diagnosed with spinal arthritis, we were dumbfounded. He had just turned 27.
It was a wake-up call, and it made us realize that we had spent too long neglecting our back health. We weren’t the only ones, either; back pain is actually the leading cause of disability worldwide. Through our research, we learned that poor posture is tied to numerous back problems but were surprised to see that it also affects temperament and energy levels. We decided to make a concerted effort to improve our posture, but we had developed so many bad habits that it seemed practically impossible to make a real change. It felt like we needed a posture coach with us all day, reminding us whenever we started to slouch.
Unfortunately, “Posture Coach” is a position usually only filled by your parents, so we turned our attention to developing a solution that would make better posture not only possible but easy. After much effort and testing, we are excited to share Backbone with you. And as we continue to grow, we look forward to evolving our services and content to promote not only a strong back but a better, healthier lifestyle.
