Back pain affects millions of employees globally, so no matter where your company sits in the corporate world, your workforce will benefit from better back care.

It can be easy to ignore general aches and pains but when it comes to the health of our back, it can quickly affect other parts of the body and become a company liability that nobody wants to deal with.

BackHug For Businesses

BackHug never gets tired and offers consistent, high-quality treatment 24/7. A single BackHug device typically covers up to 150 people in the workplace, which means that your business can provide top-quality health and well-being bonuses to everyone in your offices at a fraction of the cost of manual therapy.

Privacy can be an issue, especially if your BackHug is in an open-plan setting. We, therefore, provide a privacy booth to ensure your staff can relax in privacy.

We can incorporate your company branding on the screens, please get in touch to find out more.

Hundreds of employees can use the same BackHug device. They just need to select an available slot on the App and, with a few taps, they can book their session and start seeing an increase in their energy and focus.

Our in-app 1-1 physio consultation will guide users through a structured questionnaire and create a personalized treatment program that specifically addresses their individual needs. They can also customize each session in real-time, putting them in total control:

  • Adjust the strength and speed of the fingers
  • Focus on loosening a specific part of their back
  • Adjust the level of heat treatment or turn it off
  • Track their back tension data with our SpineMap technology to see the improvement in their back health

It's like giving each employee their own personal therapist.

With our dedicated BackHug management portal, you get access to detailed usage, back tension and other statistics for any wellness reporting and can find out how much your staff are enjoying BackHug. You can also set usage parameters, edit information and Images displayed to users on the App. Promoting and managing staff health and well-being has never been easier.

At Your Fingertips

BackHug is an entirely self-service device that users can operate with our easy-to-use "BackHug" app - available on Google Play and Apple's App Store.

On the app, users can:

  • Book their sessions
  • Choose the duration (20 - 60 mins)
  • Take a 1-to-1 physio consultation to create a bespoke programme just for them
  • Adjust the speed, strength, heat and treatment programme of each session in real time
  • Track the improvement in their back tension with our SpineMap software

We continuously update our app so you can always experience an even more personalised and improved treatment experience.

Compact Size Maximum Relief

BackHug measures L: 110cm x W: 53cm - not too different to a coffee table - and we recommend giving enough of a berth around the device to allow employees to walk around and use the device comfortably.

There is no need to have BackHug in a dedicated room; the device is so compact that it should fit snuggly into the corner of your office and privacy can be ensured with a privacy booth.

If you have any questions or would like to find out how BackHug can help your organization, feel free to get in touch. We are always happy to help.

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.

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 in the management portal if you want.

BackHug doesn't require any assembly. It's ready to use as soon as you take it out of the box - all you need to do is find the perfect place to put it, plug it in and start to feel the difference.

If you also opt for a privacy booth, that is equally easy to install and requires minor assembly.

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.

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.
