Lower back pain (LBP) is a leading cause of chronic disability and pain affecting 1 in 3 people, and is the most expensive medical condition, costing over £10Bn in UK and over £115Bn in USA per annum. Our team have created a wearable smart belt that helps motivate and guide exercise for people with LBP through detecting core activity.
