A belt to prevent and rehabilitate lower back pain problems is launched
Date:4/23/2013

FIK, Tecnalia and BTS launch a belt to prevent lower back pain problems and provide rehabilitation at home and at work. The Lumbia device can be used for patients assessment, and for therapy during postural re-education.

Nearly everyone will suffer a bout of lumbago at some point in their lives, a problem that gets worse during working life, not to mention in old age. Right now, it is the main cause of sick leave in Spain, which means an average of 6 million working days are lost per year at a cost of up to 112 million euros for National Insurance. To help to remedy this condition, FIK and Tecnalia in collaboration with the Italian company BTS have designed a technology that is not only able to prevent pain in the lumbar region but also to rehabilitate the damage caused.

Finding effective therapies to treat this disorder is one of the aims of therapists and researchers. However, relapses are frequent and disc degeneration in the lumbar region routinely ends up requiring surgery. This new technology known as Lumbia aims to remedy lumbago and, in particular, to obviate the need for surgery.

Lumbia is incorporated into a belt that the patients have to wear around their lumbar region and which includes a sensor that detects whenever the posture is not correct. In these cases, the belt emits a vibration to remind the patient that he/she must change that posture because it is bad for his/her health. At the same time, this sensor sends all the information it gathers to a computer so that the therapist involved can monitor the condition.

So the Lumbia has a dual aim: to rehabilitate in such conditions and to prevent damage in healthy patients. In the first case, the device not only helps the patient to correct bad posture, it also aims to facilitate the therapy doctors offer by providing data with which the evolution can be analysed during the period of time the therapy takes. So it can be used as an assessment tool which provides th
