Research backed results
We have spent the last few years optimizing SpineGym and its training method. It has been thoroughly tested by the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences of University of Jyväskylä, Finland: a world-famous research center.
Test on sedentary workers (age 35-60 years):
20 person test group of regular, sedentary workers, were given 2 weeks’ training with SpineGym, exercising only for 5 minutes per working day. These were the results based on EMG measurements before and after the 2-week period:
- an average 80% improvement in back muscle activation
- an average 141% improvement in abdominal muscle activation
- significant improvements in posture
- significant improvements in abdominal muscle strength
- 90% of users found the training method from efficient to very efficient.
Test 2. SpineGym test on users of 70-90 years of age:
Test group performed 4-5 minutes of SpineGym exercises 3 times a week. Test duration 2 months. Average of the final test results:
- Standing balance: 74% improvement
- Walking speed: 41% improvement
- Muscle strength and coordination (chair stand test): 58% improvement
Most of the improvement was achieved already after the first month of exercise.

General information on backache, care for the back, and the significance of good posture.
About back pain
According to research, as much as 80% of Americans suffer from back pain at some stage
About half of the population experience recurrent episodes of pain that affect the day-to-day running of their lives. Back pain is also the second common reason for visits to doctor´s office.
Back pain is most common among 35–60-year-olds
Backache is typically a result of weak muscles in the midsection
Backache is linked to sedentary work, low levels of physical activity, physical labor, obesity, stress, and accidents
Back pain decreases the ability to cope with daily tasks and results in accidents and incapacity for work.
The significance of strong deep stabilizer muscles for general well-being
The spine remains supple, mobile, and in the correct position
A strong core contributes to a better posture
Functioning muscles help maintain physical ability
Vertebrae and joints remain mobile and flexible
Strain on the back is distributed evenly
Tissue metabolism remains robust
Quality of life improves
Back care and prevention of back pain
Taking care of your back can prevent back pain
Strenghtening the deep stabilizer muscles contributes to good posture
Strong abdominal and back muscles are the base for all movement
Spine mobility should be maintained or improved
Muscle strength exercises should be carried out regularly
