Back Defense Systems;
Ten years ago our wives came to us with an idea. One is a chiropractor the other is a physical therapist. Both practice here in Fort Worth, Tx.
They take care of a number of police officers, most had the same symptoms: L4-L5, or L5-S1 disc bulges. The consensus among the officers was: the weight and tightness of the duty belt caused their symptoms, however they were not allowed to wear suspenders. Both knew if a device was invented that was worn under the shirt we could help out numerous officers both here and around the world.
The Back Defender was invented and patented, however we had to change the design and materials over 86 different times. All changes made during our research and development were made solely through officer input. We tested over 200 harnesses for two years, before we decided to put the Back Defender on the market. A local police agency was kind enough to put us in a 90 day test, after 30 days they threw out the study. We were asked to present our findings to the command and staff. That same day they put us on the budget for all new recruits.
The Back Defender is made here in Fort Worth, Tx. We have absolutely no plans to produce this product anywhere else. With all the textile jobs lost to overseas manufacturers we are staying here and putting money back into our community. Each Back Defender is assembled and shipped when we receive the order. There are currently over 20,000 Back Defenders throughout all 50 states, and 12 countries.
