Born out of necessity

Being sat in a chair for most of the day, Mark Crooks, the app designer and developer, had regular backache.

During consultations with his physiotherapist, Mark was advised to take regular micro breaks throughout the day, getting out of his chair and moving his muscles and joints.

Mark quickly discovered however that trying to remember to take micro breaks was much more difficult than he first anticipated. He found himself getting so involved in his work that he would be sat for hours at a time without a break, only remembering about micro breaks when his back began to ache.

Even when he did remember to take a micro break, despite his physiotherapist prescribing several exercises, Mark found himself repeating the same one or two exercises over and over.

Using Backache app regularly will help you form a healthy habit.

Mark understood the importance of taking micro breaks but realised that he needed additional help in trying to incorporate them into his day.

Being a mobile app developer the solution was staring him in the face.

The Backache app concept was born.
