Posture Correction Device – Improve Posture
The BODY-ALINE is the first posture correction machine specifically designed to improve posture by strengthening your back & realigning your spine in one simple motion. You can use it in your home or office when it’s convenient for you AND it requires the least amount of time/effort compared to any other back and posture solution.
The right treatment for your back pain doesn’t have to be complicated. Stronger back muscles and good posture take pressure off the spine to relieve pain. It’s just that simple.
ARM ROTATION TENSION ADJUSTMENT
The tension for the rearward arm rotation portion of the BODY-ALINE exercise movement can be adjusted by adding or removing tension bands. The bands provide anywhere from 2.5 to 10lbs of tension to exercise the muscles of the middle & upper back, along with the rear of the shoulders. A secondary function of the rearward arm rotation is to stretch the chest and front of shoulder muscles.
BACK EXTENSION TENSION ADJUSTMENT
The tension for the back extension portion of the BODY-ALINE exercise movement is adjusted by rotating the dial in front of the machine. There is a heavy duty compression spring housed underneath the seat. When the dial is turned, it compresses or decompresses the spring. The dial can be easily turned to provide anywhere from 0 to 200lbs of tension to exercise the muscles of the lower back.
MACHINE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
The height of the machine can be adjusted by loosening a knob and sliding the arm assembly up or down along the ‘spine’ of the machine. The BODY-ALINE adjusts to comfortably accommodate user heights ranging from 4’10” to 6’6″.
MACHINE LENGTH ADJUSTMENT
The length of the machine arms can be adjusted to accommodate different user arm lengths. This is done by removing an arm pin and sliding the telescoping front section of the machine arms either forward or backward, then reinserting the arm pin.
The BODY-ALINE incorporates a foam back roller that travels (rolls) along the spine while the machine is being used. The purpose of this foam back roller is to provide a soothing massage to the muscles that run along each side of the spine. Roller massage is a proven back pain treatment modality.
