Spring-Loaded Back Support
A new back support from Australia takes the weight off back muscles but still allows freedom of movement.
  The aluminum "Bendezy" weighs just 4 lbs. Straps wrap around the shoulders, waist, and legs. Springs extend from a counterweight lever that extends out from a pressure plate at the lower back. As you bend forward these help support part of your weight.
  The device adjusts easily to any wearer, and it has a range of tension settings for different work loads.
  The Bendezy can be used for any kind of work but is especially popular for gardening, sheep shearing, and other such tasks.
  The company is looking for a North American distributor.
