ABOUT LORRAINE JOSEY
Lorraine Josey has been an Occupational Therapist for over thirty years. During this time she has worked within a number clinical settings, including acute hospital based care and long term physical rehabilitation, workplace rehabilitation and consulting, and private practice.
Lorraine developed BackTone in 2002 while trying to change her patient's posture in workplace rehab. The success was staggering, and Lorraine turned her attention to posture retraining.
In 2015 Lorraine completed her masters research at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Her thesis, entitled The Use of Biomechanical Biofeedback to Improve Posture and Reduce Symptoms of Musculoskeletal Disorders in Computer Users, yielded exciting results. She presented her findings at the 2015 Occupational Therapy Australia National Conference, the 2016 American Association of Occupational Therapists Conference, the 2016 American Physical Therapy Annual Conference and the 2016 Workplace Health Association of Australia National Conference.
BackTone is perfect for computer users, sports people and athletes, and anyone who wants to look good and feel great!
Designed by Occupational Therapist and postural behaviour expert Lorraine Josey, the BackTone Posture Trainer uses biomechanical biofeedback to change your posture.
Wear BackTone over clothes for 20mins at a time, 2-3 times a day. Every time you slouch the BackTone beeps, and continues to beep until you straighten up.
BackTone works because it is designed to be worn as you go about your everyday activities, such as working at a computer, walking to work or doing the dishes. As soon as you are distracted by your task you will revert to your old habits of bad posture. The BackTone will beep, and you will automatically straighten up to turn off the beep. In this way BackTone changes your muscle memory, so your new desired posture is what feels normal.
BackTone is not a brace, it does not hold your muscles into position. Instead BackTone retrains your muscles, teaching them the habit of beautiful upright posture that people will notice!
