Better Back is not only the simple wish of many office workers around the world, it's also the name of a product that will help them achieve just that. Essentially a seat belt for desk chairs, Better Back forces people to sit upright to ensure better ergonomics and less pain in the future.

Designed by Katherine Krug, Better Back is essentially "a padded harness that straps around the pelvis and is held in place from the knees," writes Fast Co Exist. Clearly this is something people have been waiting for: "Only two weeks into a Kickstarter campaign, Krug has obliterated her funding target, raising more than 40 times the original goal. And she still has two weeks to go." Better Back addresses a need in a simple and effective way.
