About

 

The Back Pro is the first professional back pain therapy that's affordable enough for home use. The therapy consists of using the machine once or twice each day for 15 minutes.  All you need to do is relax, the machine does all of the work.

  • Continuous Passive Motion Therapy - CPM
  • Effortless / Pain-Free Movement
  • Reduce / Eliminate Pain Medication
  • In-Home Convenience
  • Less Stress on Back than Walking
  • 5-Year Warranty

 

How does it work?

 

The torso pad has friction glides on the frame of the machine creating a resistance equal to 25% of your body weight.   This means that the machine is 75% less stressful on your back than normal walking.

The first pushing action causes a pelvic tilt downward flattening the curve of the spine and compressing the discs between the lumbar vertebrae. At the end of the seven inch stroke, the pulling action of the machine causes a pelvic tilt upward increasing the curve of the lumbar spine and decompressing the discs between the lumbar vertebrae. Creating what is commonly called traction. 

The two motions together create CPM. In other words, the spine moves in a Continuous Passive Motion. This motion induces an added blood supply to the lumbar area helping your body remove the prostaglandin build-up. Prostaglandin build-up causes the pain and inflammation associated with stenosis, arthritis, and various other problems with the lumbar vertebrae and with herniated or bulging discs pressing against a nerve which is commonly called Sciatica. 

This motion requires no effort on your part. The machine does all of the work.

Who created this machine?

Randy, the inventor of the Back Pro, has been creating machines for use in orthopedic rehabilitation for years.  He has designed machines that aid joint rehabilitation including knees, hips, elbows and shoulders, and ordered by physicians around the country and by many Veteran Administration facilities.  These are similar in principle to the Back Pro.

Jim, a computer engineer, joined the team to assist with electronics including motor control, infrared remote, and the lift mechanism.

"I know without a doubt that the machine helped my pain and feel confident that it can help others as well." Clelma Welsh

"I used the machine for approximately 20 days, twice a day and I began to see improvement. The shooting pains in my left leg had became less and less frequent and I noticed I was walking better. I kept using the machine and after eight weeks I was back to feeling like a "regular" person again-WITHOUT surgery." Doug Otterson 

"Had I not been so skeptical, I could have been using this machine months ago and enjoying a pain free existence long before I did. Your machine is great and it has worked for me." Patti J. Carr

Risks and challenges

Although we produce most of this machine in our own production facility, we do obtain parts from several suppliers. Most of these parts can be purchased from multiple sources. If an issue does arise that will slow down production or shipment we will let our backers know immediately.

We appreciate you being an early supporter and will work hard to maintain your trust through communication and transparency.
