In a mixture of relaxation and stretching motions, the Backstretches, also known as the Ramstetter, offers relief, allowing the patient to shift and stretch various parts of the spine by going up and down the frame. The rollers often provide pressure (acupressure) on either side of the spine on the back muscles, where there are frequently unstable trigger points (knots). The efficacy of this system has been verified by a research analysis by the University of Iowa’s Spine Centre, which gives back pain sufferers the ability to supplement their clinical care with a device that is portable.

In a normal, passive way, seat wedges offer lumbar pain relief. Sitting on a seat wedge has the effect of pushing the pelvis forward, forcing the spine of users to assume a more ergonomically correct upright position. Seat wedges can be helpful for car drivers suffering from lumbar pain by angling their backs into more comfortable driving positions, or in sedentary occupational conditions where the sufferer of back pain may take a suitable position for several hours, such as call centre employees. Ideal for everyone, especially PC users, working in a sitting position. The coccyx wedge, which has a cut off segment to decrease or avoid pressure on the sacrum or coccyx, is a variation of the seat wedge that could cause lower back pain or tail bone pain.
