Everybody Needs A Healthy Spine30% of Americans suffer from backpain

Did you know that almost thirty percent of North Americans and Europeans experience some measure of spinal pain?  Consequently, there exists a wide array of dubious “healthy” back products in the marketplace.  In Germany–home of the Bellicon–the “Healthy Back Campaign” (Aktion gesunder Rücken”) was established more than fifteen years ago in order to assist those with spinal issues evaluate the plethora of available products by helping them rate and qualify top-of-the-line offerings through a handy quality-oriented “seal of approval” system.

How best should something be developed and manufactured to create a product capable of maximizing the needs of a distressed back, and alleviate needless pain?  Such a question is incredibly complicated–and answers require immense research, money, time, and patience.  The “Healthy Back Campaign” (AGR) helps the health-conscience consumer get answers, and offers them a non-bias source of information–which they can use in order to make the best purchasing decisions.  The “Healthy Back Campaign” SEAL OF APPROVAL is awarded to only the highest-quality products available on the market, and is given based on the independent opinions of medical, scientific, and health field experts.

Well engineered and manufactured items can be excellent tools in the fight against back pain–not to mention any number of therapeutic motion-based conditions.  But since there are an incredible number of such tools available, it is often difficult to know what products will be the most helpful.  The AGR SEAL OF APPROVAL, developed through the combined effort of AGR and the “German Federal Association of Spinal Educational Institutions” functions as one of the best consumer guides available when evaluating the “ergonomic” value of merchandise intended for daily use–things like furniture, car seats, chesterfields, chairs, beds, boots, etc..

The Bellicon mini-trampoline is the only one of its kind in existence to receive the Healthy Back Campaign’s (AGR’s) quality SEAL OF APPROVAL.  The AGR finalized its decision based solid scientific evidence:  The “Bellicon Bounce”, due to its patented, highly-elastic bungee cord system, is not only incredibly effective, but is also gentle–naturally having a beneficial effect on the back musculature, spinal discs, and the spine itself.
