BACK IN THE SADDLE, PAIN FREE

BACK IN THE SADDLE, PAIN FREE

A new study is seeking to find a solution to chronic back pain in police officers.  The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire partnered with a local hospital and the Eau Claire Police Department to design an equipment vest rather than a belt and tested it on officers for six months. 

After the study, officers reported less back pain using the vest and the police department is working to switch all officers to the new design.  Now, the university says police departments from around the world are looking into its study to potentially make a change as well.
