A unique engineered solution to the common problem of back discomfort, Lunarbac™, has been launched by its inventor, Nick Langley. It is a bespoke 100% British product that uses high-tech foam wedges, held in place by a soft winceyette belt, to support the pelvis while the wearer is relaxing or sleeping. The wedges are in soft, medium, and hard densities of closed cell cross-linked polyethylene foam, fabricated by leading converters Polyformes. They provide optimum support and comfort, with two large and two small wedges held in pockets in the Lunarbac belt.

Nick Langley suffered from a progressive back problem for about 30 years before he invented Lunarbac, which he has spent a further six years developing to the stage where it is being launched in the UK. Disappointment with conventional back treatment drove him to start experimenting with his own cure, the basis of which is the firm belief that most back damage is sustained when relaxing, while asleep in bed or simply sitting in a chair or a seat.

The Lunarbac solution is to protect the back from pressure while the wearer is sleeping or sitting. It puts the cushioning support wedges between the pelvis and the supporting medium – mattress, seat back, etc. This prevents damage occurring and enables the back to recover naturally. Lunarbac stops the pelvis rotating and thus avoids the detrimental ‘flexible shower hose’ effect on the spine (ie just as hose sustains damage over time where attached to the faucet, so with the spine where attached to the pelvis). In supporting the pelvis, it obviates any pressure on the spine itself.

Lunarbac is only needed when the wearer is sleeping or sitting. If, however, the user wears it throughout the day, it will not restrict movement or bother him or her when being active It moves around with the body, thanks to the contours of the wedges.

The contoured, colour-coded foam wedges were created using computer-aided design facilities, and are fabricated using specialist techniques evolved by Polyformes. Three colours of foam are employed – blue (for the harder pads), yellow (for the medium), and white (for the soft). The wedges give an attractive appearance to the Lunarbac, as well as providing the necessary degree of cushioning, back support, lightness in weight, and durability.

Lunarbac is obtainable direct from Nick Langley via the website, where his book can also be read. ‘Trust Me, I’m an Engineer’ explains how the Lunarbac can help other back sufferers, and contains helpful advice on how best to overcome this common health condition.
