New OPTP Back Support Design Targets Healthy Sitting Posture
In an effort to accommodate individuals who spend extended hours sitting and require comprehensive back support, OPTP has introduced the new Thoracic Lumbar Support. The product features an upside-down “T” design intended to provide low- to mid-back support for healthy sitting posture in users.
The Minneapolis, Minn-based company notes that the Thoracic Lumbar Back Support’s horizontal lumbar cushion is engineered to encourage a healthy lumbar lordosis. Its vertical thoracic cushion runs up the spine, aligning and supporting the thoracic spine. By properly aligning the thoracic spine, a neutral shoulder position is encouraged, the chest is opened up, and an ideal cervical curve is promoted, the company states. The product aims to support a correct sitting posture in order to offer users relief and prevention of back pain, tension headaches, fatigue, and chronic musculoskeletal conditions that often accompany poor sitting posture.
Featuring supportive foam, a removable, washable Polartec cover, and an adjustable strap that can be attached to most seats with backrests, OPTP reports that the Thoracic Lumbar Back Support is recommended for use in a variety of locations. These include offices, cars, semi-trucks, classrooms, couches, airplanes, tractors, theatres, and stadiums.
