Back-friendly everyday products are important modules in the prevention as well as in the therapy of back problems. It would be a good idea for those affected to make their personal environment more „back-friendly“, from their workplace through their personal living environment to their recreational area.
Even for experts it is not always easy to see whether the design of a product is back-friendly or not. Quite frequently, manufacturers even sell completely unsuitable products as back-friendly, and spread misleading information.
The AGR seal of approval provides reliable decision making support. It stands for strict test criteria, jointly developed by independent medical/therapeutical experts from various fields of study. The members of this body of experts come from two exceedingly competent professional medical associations, the Federal Association of German Back Schools (BdR) e.V. and the Association Forum Healthy Back e.V. – Better Living. Only products that have passed a strict test procedure receive the AGR seal of approval.
The AGR seal of approval has received the accolade „very good“ from ÖKO-TEST, a German consumer magazine, and has been given the best grade „highly recommendable“ by „Label-online“, a portal run by the federal consumer initiative association „Die Verbraucher Initiative e. V.“. „Label-online“ is being constantly expanded, modified and upgraded with support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, the Federal Environment Agency and currently also from the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL).
If you are looking for help with your backache, if you are looking for back-friendly products, then pay attention to the AGR seal of approval.
