    I’m so glad you learned from this. What a valuable piece of apparatus. It may take 16 weeks, but well worth it!! Enjoy!!

    Hi! This is really great! I just ordered a baby arm chair and a spine corrector from Gratz in Dove. Can’t wait to get it, wish it didn’t take 16 weeks!

    Great review of arm chair and clear points of what to look for! Awesome!

    I do not have a baby chair at the moment, so I keep trying to mimic it with what I have. I have found the closest I can get is using the spine corrector and using the rollback springs because those are the lightest I have from the Tower. Nowhere near the same thing as the actual chair. But it lets me do a few of the exercises. Question, what do you all think of using the rollback springs like this? I’m a bit worried about over stretching them of something. Should I not be using those springs like this?

      Ynowak, I think your springs will be fine, I know teachers who keep an extra set of Rollback springs for use on their baby chair when they are working with a stronger person. And most of the Rollback exercises stretch the springs more than you would on a baby chair.
