We all know that pain and fatigue lead to downtime, lost efficiency, and reduced margin of safety. The BackCycler® is not a simple vibrating massage gizmo, rather it is a active air powered device which helps your body remain loose and reduce the pain caused from sitting in one position for an extended period of time
“At Celadon several of our drivers have commented on the innovation of the BackCycler® feature stating that they feel less fatigue at the end of the day and are also able to drive the full day without back pain compared to past seating choices. When drivers offer information like this without being asked, we then know that we have made a good choice for them.”
-Jeff A Bryant Vice President of Maintenance Celadon
The BackCycler® system cyclically inflates and deflates an air bladder in the lumbar area of the seat. This slow and slight movement in and out, as the bladder fills and deflates causes your lower back to slightly adjust on a continuous, cyclic basis. This helps keep blood flowing and keeps muscles and ligaments from stiffening.
The BackCycler® was developed from 10 years of research with the University of Vermont and funded by the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research. Today many fleets will only purchase vehicles with BackCycler® as a standard feature on their new trucks. It isn’t just about feel good, it is about the bottom line.
