August 7, 2018—Think Healthy, Inc., is celebrating the impressive results of a study conducted from May 14 through June 7, 2018, on 53 clerical workers at Seattle City Light, led by Ergonomist Keith Osborne, using the company’s BAX-U Posture Corrector. Seattle City Light is a public utility providing electrical power to Seattle and its surrounding areas. It has 1,872 employees.
The study found that 88 percent of participants felt an immediate change in their posture, body position, and felt reduction in pain when wearing a BAX-U posture brace.
The BAX-U Posture Corrector is an upper back and shoulder brace designed by Romina Ghassemi, DC, to help treat the spinal care patients in her practice. This posture brace is unique among others in this category as it does not compress the armpit, a drawback with most other posture braces on the market. It adjusts to a person’s body type and lifestyle. The brace is virtually unnoticeable under clothing, making it discreet and versatile to fit today’s busy lifestyles.
More than 90 percent of participants responded; their posture awareness was most affected when wearing a BAX-U P Posture Corrector, “bringing an awareness of the importance of proper posture” Osborne said. More than 30 percent of participants indicated their upper-back, mid-back and shoulder pain levels were most affected when wearing the brace. This finding confirms the important of proper posture and how a holistic approach in corporate wellness programs can reduce the cost of injuries and time loss for employers, while saving money and gaining more productive employees.
“The goal is to reduce the incidence of injury thru better posture. BAX-U simply backs you up and increases awareness of better body alignment,” Ghassemi said. “After all, this is a foundation of chiropractic philosophy.”
The impressive results of the study with the BAX-U posture brace has led Osborne to seek funding for a future study with Think Healthy’s newest product, the BAX-U Performance Shirt, to be conducted on field workers in 2019, pending funding. Currently, chiropractic, physical medicine and orthopedic offices nationwide are prescribing and distributing the BAX-U Posture Corrector to their patients and through corporate wellness programs.
