Healthcare professionals recognize the
Thumper® Flexor Pro as the
pinnacle of back supports. In providing their
patients with the ultimate
in care, these professionals incorporate the
Flexor Pro as a foundational
element in their back treatment protocols. The Thumper Flexor Pro is patented
because it is the only back support that offers height adjustability
variance) in treating the curve (lordosis) of the lumbar
The lumbar spine curvature of every
individual is unique. The design
of the Thumper Flexor Pro incorporates
an air chamber that permits
matching with the patient's lordosis. This
is easily accomplished by
adjusting air pressure in the chamber with a
simple bulb in much the
same way that air pressure is adjusted when
utilizing a blood pressure
cuff. Equally important is the positioning of
the air chamber so that it
correctly aligns with the apex of the
patient's lordosis. This is the
patented feature of the Thumper Flexor Pro: an air chamber with
vertical placement that is easily adjusted on
the support stand.
Thumper Flexor Pro is a professional
grade back support. It has been
tested rigorously in the Occupational
Biomechanics and Safety
Laboratories of the University of Waterloo,
Canada, under the
supervision of Stuart M. McGill, PhD, Professor of
Dr. McGill is on record in his observation that the
Thumper Flexor Pro
back support is beneficial in enhancing proper
Dynamic Personal Seating for Ultimate Back Health
Spinal stresses often develop during
sustained periods of sitting with poor posture. Over time, these
stresses become problematic if they are not reduced. For example, when
people sit in a slouched position, their muscle activity is minimal and
the passive tissues (ligaments and the annuli of individually-affected
spinal discs) become stressed. Prolonged loading ultimately results in
back-muscle spasms and diminished reflex response. Full and sustained
spinal flexion during long episodes of slouched sitting produces
measurable disc annulus stresses and - in laboratory settings - has been
observed to even cause herniated discs!
There is a specific link between
prolonged sitting and the incidence of hernias. On the other hand,
sitting with an upright torso posture requires greater activation of the
psoas and back extensor muscles, which impose higher compressive forces
on the spine. Several strategies have proven to be extremely helpful in
reducing these stresses. The objective is to make sitting a dynamic
activity that includes frequent changes in posture. Changing lumbar
postures causes a beneficial migration of the loads from one group of
tissues to another.
Custom-fitting the Lumbar Spine
Thumper active back supports incorporate
an air chamber that is easily positioned with a vertical adjustment
within the frame. This optimizes the unique fit for each person. The
inflatable air chamber helps people achieve relieving postures and
changes in posture throughout the day, thus enhancing back health for
those who must sit for extended periods.
Each lumbar spine has a unique curve (lordosis) and its health is affected by two crucial elements while sitting:
- The amount that lordosis has been artificially reduced (natural
spine curvature straightened due to bending/slouching forward) and
- The height of the lumbar spine lordosis.
Our products can precisely locate - and
properly support - the lumbar lordosis: up, down, in, and out, resulting
in true, universal, custom adjustment. After correct positioning is
achieved, it is important to change the amount of pressure on the lumbar
spine - a process easily implemented with the Thumper Flexor Pro.
Changing the pressure in the air chamber adjusts the firmness of our
products. In turn, this changes circulation patterns and tissue loads
within the spine - a process we refer to as Active Seating.
- Thumper Flexor Pro uses the best materials available and is skillfully assembled by hand.
- Up to 30 individual components are used in Thumper back supports.
- All elements are selected for durability.
- Foam-based materials (all flame-retardant) are engineered to last a minimum of 15 years.

presently available on the market. Our fabric is fade resistant, odor
resistant, immune to fungus and bacteria, and wicks away perspiration.
- Our active back supports employ the highest quality air valves
available. We provide a lifetime guarantee on all air valve components.
