The Backboard™+ is a simple, adjustable lumbar support that helps improve posture and restore the natural curve of the spine when seated. The key is to prevent your lower back from slumping / sagging outwards and this is where the Backboard™+ can help. Used to help correct postural imbalances, the Backboard™+ simply slides into the back of your chair, supporting the natural inward curve. As it pushes your pelvis forward, it helps to put the correct curvature in your spine, encouraging you to sit upright in the correct position and improve your seated posture. The Backboard™+ is extremely versatile and lightweight so you can take it wherever you want.
