Back-friendly everyday products are important modules in the prevention as well as in the therapy of back problems. It would be a good idea for those affected to make their personal environment more "back-friendly", from their workplace through their personal living environment to their recreational area.
Even for experts it is not always easy to see whether the design of a product is back-friendly or not. Quite frequently, manufacturers even sell completely unsuitable products as back-friendly, and even spread misleading information.
