I've used BackHug in lunch breaks which has been perfect for relieving any tension. Although I have no present back or neck issues, I found a lunch time massage on BackHug was perfect for retuning to my desk feeling relaxed and revived.

One BackHug,

BackHug is a smart back therapy device that never gets tired, offering consistent, high-quality treatment around the clock.

It effectively relieves tension, stiffness, and discomfort in the back, neck, and shoulder blades.

With a single device covering up to 150 individuals, your business can extend top-tier, cost-effective health and well-being benefits to all employees.

"It does just free up stress, stress from your back"

"It's really been a struggle to sit down for long periods of time  and was almost getting to the point where I need to reconsider my career. I like my job so I wanted to do this desk job  but   It looked like that might not be possible."

"Before I had the machine   I was on this downwards progression slowly and more and more pain, and [BackHug] it's starting to reverse that process."

"More than anything, just that my back isn't limiting me in my career, or in my personal life. BackHug helps me to relax whilst I'm actually on the machine and, more important thing is, it frees up the joint."

Our Privacy Booth,

Helps You Relax

We understand the importance of privacy when it comes to relaxation. That's why we've designed compact privacy booths exclusively for our valued business customers.

Our privacy booths are easy to assemble.
The semi-circular shape, coupled with a convenient curtain door, ensures a cozy and tranquil environment. The booth dimensions are as follows: Height - 190cm, Width - 200cm, Depth - 140cm.

Privacy booth is an optional add-on and incurs a separate charge.

Book An Intro Call To Get Started


Each of your employees can book their session directly from our App (available for free on both the Apple and Google store).  Time slots and session duration are all handled on the app so there's no need for anyone to manually manage who uses it and when. You can however set usage parameters (such as operational hours for example) in the management portal if you want.

No! Massage chairs treat muscle tightness. BackHug treats joint stiffness in the back, neck and shoulder blades. Massage chairs use balls and rollers that are too big and wide, can't reach the joints in the back, and can only treat muscles. BackHug's human-sized robotic fingers go deep and release stiff joints in the back, which is the root cause of most pain people experience.

It’s very unlikely BackHug will break down. But if anything doesn’t work, contact us and we'll either fix the problem remotely or send you a new one and arrange for the old one to be returned to us - at no extra cost to you. All updates to BackHug's software will be performed remotely and require no manual input from your or your colleagues.

BackHug measures L: 110cm, W: 53cm, and we recommend giving enough of a berth around the device to allow employees to walk around and use the device comfortably.

While a separate room would be ideal for privacy, it is not required to use BackHug. As long as you have space for the device, that is all that is needed. We can provide a privacy booth to ensure employees feel comfortable while receiving their treatment.

BackHug uses two main fabrics: easy-clean upholstery and easy-clean neoprene. These materials will ensure the BackHug stays hygienic and clean after repeated use. We recommend leaving wipes next to the device so that users can wipe the device down before use.

BackHug can, in theory, serve an unlimited number of employees because the robotic fingers that provide the same consistent, high-quality therapy never get tired. However, a single BackHug device can typically cover a 100 - 150 workforce, so if you have more than 150 employees, you may want to get a couple of BackHug's. That way, you will ensure everyone can book a session for their desired time slot and feel the benefit of personal therapy at work. 

No, at all. Suppose your organization has restricted Wi-Fi due to security reasons. In that case, we use a different method to update the device's software. The BackHug will always stay updated with the latest software.
