Pain free sitting

Spine Design Ltd, trading as The Back Shop, situated in the centre of Dublin near Trinity College, has been carrying out R&D into the causes and prevention of back pain for over 25 years. (Published in our book “The Engineering Solution to Suffering Back Pain”)

This has resulted in a unique business that manufactures a range of office, home and car seating that in 95% of cases results in pain free sitting for many hours at a time.

Backprints are as unique as Fingerprints

Every spine has a different shape. Our patented Spinal System-S measures individual spines when sitting with perfect posture. This information is used to manufacture custom tailored office home and car seating that in turn guarantees perfect posture. In 95% of cases, and over ten thousand back sufferers, this has resulted in pain free sitting.

C PositionBad posture causes back pain.

Bad posture is the main cause of back pain, when the spineis slumped into a forward “C” position resulting in huge pressure in the discs.

Perfect posture prevents back pain

S PositionPerfect posture, the “S” position, means the least possible pressure in the discs, resulting in pain free sitting.

Disc pressure variation

How the intervertebral disc pressure varies with body position.

The diagram shows how the intervertebral disc pressure varies with body position. Lying flat (1) the pressure is least. Sitting with bad posture (8) creates more pressure than any other body positon.
