Meanwhile I feel like this app has the potential to be something really great for people who suffer back pain but £60 yearly to do this?! It’s a HUGE no from me! I have scoliosis and also a fused spine and the pain I go through is unbearable! And I also find it quite concerning how it doesn’t ask about any existing back or spinal conditions, just asks how bad the pain is, this would be brilliant for me but paying £60 a year isn’t when I also have 2 toddlers. It’s such a shame really.

100% worth the price

Worth a quick review here.

I've suffered from chronic back pain for a decade and I've just hit 32. Not fun. At 30 it took a significant downward turn and I couldn't get up from a seat without fearing the a surge of pain. Don't even mention sneezing *shudder*.

I've had countless attempts at physio had an MRI, have always remained active but nothing worked.

Then I started Pilates which was a massive forward step.

Having discovered Kaia, I tried the 7 day trial, seems decent but date I say too easy.

But figured whatever, it's my back, worth £30 and seeing how it goes.

Despite feeling easy compared to hard gym sessions, my back pain is measurably lower.

The education aspect is actually hugely useful and despite being lightweight the way it's structures has actually taught me a lot.

What I'd say in summary is this. Software development and startups is hard. Charging £60 for a year is about 4/ 5 yoga or pilates sessions. So frankly, pay with a smile on your face as these product people have worked very hard at something that can really improve your health.

People who suffer from chronic back pain know how this condition can become your life story. Kaia has helped me a lot in the last 4 weeks (very quick improvements which shocked me).

Cheers Kaia team. Looking forward to many improvements/ iterations to come. 👌🏼

Mercenary and despicable

There is zero content without first submitting your email address (personal details) and committing to allowing your personal medical data processing under GDPR rules. There is zero functionality to this app unless you commit your financial details. That’s right, you can’t even have a “free” 7-day trial without first submitting your financial details, committing to a payment plan (and then having to cancel this at a later date). Disgustingly mercenary but not surprising as so many apps are heading in this direction. C’mon Apple, in what way is this “in-app purchases”? Surely this is a pay only app and should be described as such. Conning/tricking people into providing personal data could be a matter for the courts...
I trust there is an option within the app to cancel all this processing of personal information? There is a confirmatory email which you can confirm with the click of a button but if you want to cancel everything it says “contact us” without any linked method of doing so easily. Utter despicable.
