Understanding Back Tension Tracking
For a thorough explanation, please refer to our White Paper titled "Evaluation of Methods for Monitoring Back Stiffness Response to Spinal Mobilisation Using an Automated Back Therapy Device."
Back Tension Tracking is an innovative technology developed by BackHug to monitor and assess changes in back tension during each therapy session. By analyzing data from your sessions, BackHug generates a report, indicating tension differences between before and after the session on a scale ranging from Minor to Major.
This inventive software concentrates on six specific back regions: Left Upper, Right Upper, Left Mid, Right Mid, Left Lower, and Right Lower. When you participate in a BackHug session of at least 20 minutes, the Back Tension Tracking carefully measures tension levels in these areas.
How Back Tension Tracking Works:
At the heart of Back Tension Tracking are BackHug's 26 human-sized robotic fingers, each controlled by a motorized mechanism. As these fingers move, they experience varying levels of resistance due to aspects such as clothing, muscle tissue, and bone structure, which in turn affect the electrical power required for each movement. A sophisticated data analysis program collects, processes, and extracts valuable insights from this data.
*The underlying technology is inspired by a similar concept used in the agricultural fruit-picking industry, where advanced robotic arms carefully pick fruits without causing damage to their delicate skin.
