Back pain is now the world's leading cause of human disability. We believe prevention should start in school.

The B.A.S.I.C PROJECT is aimed at raising awareness of back pain and its prevention in childhood.

Back care awareness and prevention training at primary school age is essential, especially before the transition to secondary school takes place, as kids carry more loads,increased PC/tablet use,sitting and spinal development increases.

The B.A.S.I.C Project focuses on four specific common health issues in the modern day lifestyle of children; Interactively highlighting the study of the spine and body in relation to the seated/standing posture, carrying school bags, texting/phone use and PC and game station use.

The B.A.S.I.C Project uses practical daily scenarios, discussions and problem solving activities, embedding an 'Eat Well, Grow Well, Be Happy' principle.
