Kyrobak Reviews: Does it Actually Work?

• Excellent return policy
• May not be ideal for some types of back pain.
• Awkward to mount by some people
Reviews of Kyrobak, a passive motion home-treatment appliance that claims to naturally relieve moderate lower back pain.
Kyrobak is an apparatus which can supposedly be used at home to ease lower back issues. It is first placed on a flat surface such as a floor or bed, and then laid upon in a supine position. Powering the unit up then results in a gentle oscillating motion to the pelvic region.
The product has advertised using the domains trykyro.com, personalkyro.com, and howtokyrobak.com. These now redirect to the official website, kyrobak.com.
Cost and Availability
Kyrobak is available to order from two of the websites listed above. Fine print on one of the websites details the three month installment plan for purchasing Kyrobak. Initially, costumers are billed $99.99 plus $19.95 shipping and handling (S&H). Monthly installment payments of $99.98 then begin the month after the primary payment and continue for two consecutive months. The three payments add up to $299.95 + $19.95 S&H for a total of $319.90
A 60 day trial guarantee is offered on the website. The guarantee states that after 45-60 days of usage, Kyrobak can be returned for a full refund including S&H. Returning before the 45 day limit includes a refund of everything but S&H.
Kyrobak comes with a manufacturer’s warranty lasting a year from the purchase date.

Kyrobak Reviews (2016 Update)
Kyrobak began its initial advertising campaign in 2014. One excellent source of information pertaining to Kyrobak is the review posted to accroya.com. The reviewer attempts to make sense of some of the vague scientific studies posted to clinicaltrials.gov by the makers of Kyrobak (Radiancy, Inc.).
In addition, there are a number of informative comments attached to the article, several from users who claim to be chiropractors. From reading these comments and other online reviews, the general consensus is that Kyrobak may be helpful to some people, yet the price-to-benefit ratio has been called excessive by some consumers.
One complaint is that mounting the device is problematic by some people with significant back problems. Getting down to the floor and maneuvering into position may be too much to ask of those suffering from extreme back pain.
Although Kyrobak is said to have a weight limit of 320 pounds, those weighing as low as 185 pounds have stated that they felt the machine struggled under their weight.
Keep in mind that many review sites which allow customer input are often skewed by those who were frustrated with slow shipping, thus their negative review may not be directed at the performance of the product itself.
Kyrobak appeared on Amazon in 2015 and currently holds a modest 3.2 star rating from over 30 reviews.
Should you decide to try the product, Kyrobak does come with an ample return policy, allowing you to try it for 45 days. If you aren’t satisfied, they don’t just refund the product price, but the shipping costs and originally shipping are both refunded.
Finally, not all back pain is equal. What may work for one person may not work for another. It is possible that Kyrobak completely relieves pain in some instances, and could potentially make it worse in others. Sciatica, muscle spasms, and nerve or bone related pain will not all respond equally to the same stimulus.
Kyrobak is a household novelty that applies passive motion to the pelvis. Brief sessions up to three times a day are said to diminish lower back pain. While some individuals may obtain reprieve from Kyrobak, the approximate $300 cost is something to consider. There are potential alternatives: yoga, chiropractic sessions/exercises, or other similar products on the market that may be more reasonably priced.
If you’ve tried Kyrobak, give it a star rating above and a comment below.
