Thought I'd pass along some info about a product I've been using....maybe kinda cool. And in advance I'm not affiliated in any way with it. It's called the Darwin Trimmer Handle. It allows you to stand more upright while trimming. I'm 6' 2" and trimming can be a literal pain in the back after a while.

For the last two days I've been running the power head trimmer with Darwin attatched...about 6 hours or there abouts. I fought it for the first hour trying to run the trimmer how I normally would....made my trigger hand ache and handle arm forearm strain.
I then started to go with the handle....relax my arms and shoulders and start to think about standing straight and being smooth. Kinda starting to grow on me.

Anyhow it isn't cheap and it does add weight to the machine but it maybe the answer for guys who bend over during trimming.

Very interesting take on a trimmer handle.  This fella explains a little about why it works for him, and states he needed an adjustment period as well.

Unfortunately, at this time, you will need to take a European vacation or pay Mower Magic the shipping costs.
