This device is made for the overhead worker to take the stress off the neck and head, while also providing back support to help users keep their posture and reduce the risk of injury.
Everything about Neck Assist has been designed with comfort and good posture in mind. The materials are high quality, and the device is conveniently adjustable for people of different heights, weighs less than 2 pounds and is easily maneuverable.
Neck Assist's vertical headrest bar slides vertically to accommodate users both short and tall. The headrest pivots up and down to allow for more or less range of motion in the neck. The device fits over the shoulders like a jacket, while the lower back support belt keeps Neck Assist firmly in place and encourages better posture when bending, reaching, lifting or otherwise putting stress on the posterior chain of muscles.
Neck Assist is designed for situations where workers must awkwardly crane their head upwards for extended periods, jobs like overhead plastering, sanding, ceiling installations, and installation.
According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, back pain is something nearly every American will experience; back and neck injuries are among the leading causes of lost time at work and disability.
