Office employees often sit for an average of 10 hours per day. But the more sedentary we are, the more prone we become to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, injury, muscle stiffness and more. When we begin to lose the flexibility in our backs, we endanger our spinal health and our overall mobility.
If you’ve ever suffered with back pain, you’ll know the debilitating impact that it can have on your physical health. Everyday movements can become increasingly difficult, meaning you feel massively restricted in day-to-day life. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, lower back pain is the most common cause of job-related disability, and around 80% of adults will experience it at some point in their lifetimes. Therefore, back health is undeniably important in ensuring wellbeing in both personal and work capacities.
This is where Hyperice has so cleverly developed a product that is not only beneficial to everyone who works a sitting 9-5 job, but also aids in long-term “back health”.
The ‘Venom Back’ device has been designed to amplify the soothing power of heat with compression and vibration to melt away stress and tension on your core – it’s the best of both worlds.
With digital touch screen controls, adjustable temperature levels, and three distinct vibration patterns, you are always in full control, so you can get the perfect treatment every time.
Why is back-health important?
Strong back muscles are essential for core stability and avoiding any unnecessary stresses to the body’s supportive structures, such as the ligaments and tissues. As one gets older, bone density also decreases, so keeping your back and core strong will prolong any injuries later on down the line. Back and core strengthening exercises, alongside full-body stretches, will help to strengthen your spine, and increase your flexibility and overall wellbeing. Without a healthy spine, everyday tasks and movements such as sitting up straight, bending over, picking up objects, walking, twisting and moving your neck can become extremely difficult or painful.
Back pain can be caused by a number of different factors and can impact anyone at any age. Some of the most common causes of back pain include bad posture, excess weight, heavy lifting, lack of exercise and increased stress or bodily tension.
Featuring nanotechnology heat and vibration, how exactly does the Venom back work?
The Venom Back amplifies the soothing power of heat with compression and vibration to melt away stress and tension on your core – it’s the best of both worlds.
The Venom Back boasts variable heat levels, vibration patterns, and time sequences. Why is heat such a beneficial form of recovery?
As the global recovery technology leader, specialising in vibration, percussion and thermal technology, Hyperice is used by the most elite athletes, professional sports leagues and teams to optimise player performance. In terms of heat levels, your choices are Level 1/Low (130° Fahrenheit), Level 2/Medium (145° Fahrenheit), and Level 3/High (160° Fahrenheit). For vibration, you can pick between a wave (in which the vibration moves across the four back vibration pods in short bursts), a pulse (in which the whole device alternates between on and off), and constant (which is a steady flow of vibration through the device). This setting is largely a matter of personal preference.
Much like anything in life, consistency is key. One cannot train or exercise, or use the venom back once, and expect miraculous results. Once needs to be consistent in their approach.
Combining heat and vibration to warm up, loosen, and relax sore or stiff muscles. How will this aid someone with a typical 9-5 sitting job?
The venom back will keep my back warm and relaxed, whether pre-workout, post-workout, during your lunch break or even, somewhere in between work. A portable heat and vibration back device that wraps around your midsection with a velcro fastener, which allows for a hands-free, portable treatment on demand. It’s comfortable and convenient for anyone who needs a little TLC.
The Venom line is designed to move with you, for a hands-free, portable treatment on demand. Where can one use this product?
Anywhere and everywhere they feel comfortable to. You can use it whilst sitting at your desk, walking in the shopping mall, sitting on the couch, or even driving your car.
One of the highlighted features is the digital touch screen, which allows you to customise the temperature, vibration pattern, and time. Can one wear this out, on a daily basis under clothing?
Absolutely – this product is made to be worn, made to be used, and made for results. It is also approved by TSA for carry-on.
Does the Venom back come in different sizes to fit people with different body shapes and sizes?
The venom back is a one-size-fits all, weighing in at just under 1kg and measuring in at 111cm x 25.4cm. With its Velcro covering, it can fit a wide range of body types, from a 2m tall netball player to a shorter mid-field hockey player. Overall, the Venom Back offers a positive out-of-box and first-wear impression.
Moving is a key part of protecting your spine throughout the day. Walk, bend, and stretch or simply sit back and relax.
