When you have back pain, it can ruin your whole day (or, oftentimes, longer). It can make it difficult to even accomplish the activities of daily living. And, prevention can make a big difference! Most of us have probably been told to make sure we lift correctly, so as to protect our backs. Or, you may have heard how important it is to do things in a manner that is ergonomically correct. It makes things easier on the body. And, it’s so much easier to prevent a back injury versus treating a back injury. Well, one such tool that can help is the BackEZ.
How It Works And How It Can Help
What is the BackEZ? It’s an add-on handle that can fit onto most long-handled, stick tools (such as a rake or shovel). According to the product’s website, “Attaching the BackEZ instantly converts an old and awkward shovel into an ergonomically correct powerhouse of efficiency, safety and comfort.” It allows you to stand up straighter, putting less strain on your back.
The BackEZ is easy to install within a matter of minutes with the use of an Allen wrench, which is supplied with the product. And, it’s easy to put on and take off, so you can easily switch it for use on your different tools and you can easily adjust it as needed for your comfort and ease of use. According to the website, it can lessen carpal tunnel stress and can be helpful for those with arthritis or prior back injury.
The handle has a wide opening so it can accommodate many types of work or snow gloves. The plastic is made to be durable and it comes in 4 different colors: yellow, blue, red, and green.
Where You Can Get Yours!
BackEZ is available for purchase on Amazon. The price varies for the different colors and depending on which seller you choose. You can use the 15% discount code, BACKEZ15, to save some money! So pick one up for someone you love and get one for yourself, too. I can’t wait to try this out on my shovel when the snow comes. I may even be jumping up to volunteer first to shovel the snow so I get to use the BackEZ! As quoted on the product website, “Work smarter not harder.”
