BodyBridge spine stretch
The BodyBridge was designed by an inventor desperate to undo the effects of years of abuse on his back from physical labor on the job, but I need it for my kid who's suffering premature damage from carrying incredibly heavy loads in her school book bag. It's a simple device that enables you to stretch your back in the reverse direction of the usual positions assumed for working in a sedentary job or a physical job that stresses the back muscles. It reminds me of the bridge position in yoga, which is sometimes difficult to do if you have any kind of neck injury or other issues that prevent you from holding that position from the floor. The standard model sells for $425 on the BodyBridge website, and comes with a 12-minute instructional video on how to use the Bodybridge for workouts.
And if that price is too steep, or you lack space, there's also a Mini BodyBridge that sells for just $55, and can be used on the floor, in a chair, and while driving.
