The patented MerryBack™ spinal decompression system leverages your body's architecture to decompress your spine gently*.
The MerryBack™ transfers the weight of your upper body to your hips, bypassing your lower back where all that pain is. Taking the weight off your lower back creates a gentle pulling apart of the spine which is called "spinal decompression". Decompression is a thousand year old effective way of alleviating back pain caused by compression of your spine due to gravity, old age and repetitive use, such as in sports or lifting. The MerryBack™ is different though because most back pain products squeeze your back or dramatically pull it apart -- like inversion tables, hanging from a doorway or pushing on a bar. At MerryBack™ we discovered that those products provide too little or too much decompression. The MerryBack's™ gentle decompression takes place while sitting or standing and slightly leaning forward --*after a lot of research we learned that this kind of decompression provides long lasting relief, unlike the competition. It is believed this subtle decompression, a couple of hours a day, enables blood and nutrients to flow into the soft sponge like discs that separate painful vertebrae that are too close together giving your discs the time they need to re-hydrate, or "puff up" again and regain their padding. It is this "gentle decompression" that enables the MerryBack™ to provide long term pain relief after wearing it only a couple of hours a day for about 2 weeks.
The MerryBack™ also supports the spine, making good posture easy. It is so comfortable while sitting for long periods of time, it is the only decompression device that is effective while driving, working in the office, or while standing.
