I have degenerative disc disease, and am in chronic pain. This back support seat cushion is the finest there is for supporting your back while sitting anywhere. It is odd to find it under auto supplies, when I think it should be under health supplies. I am purchasing my second one for my office. My first one sits at the dining room table always. If I did a lot of driving, I might also use it - however my car seat seems designed for back comfort on its' own. There is no way to explain HOW this forme supports your lower back while sitting, but it does just radiate comfort because of its' shape. I can only say - get one! Carol D.

the only product i've found thats better is the air filled obus forme that uses a pump.

they work:

i've used them for over ten years. I've traveled over a million miles carrying one.

i've not had trouble with the product staying in place even though it uses only one strap and they do make a light noises sometimes but they never bother me.

i colleague told me about them. i've told hundreds of people. my neighbor tried multiple products and borrowed mine to use in his car. he wouldn't give it back.

what i don't like about this model:

this model uses velcro to attach a foam pillow to the shell. that allows you to adjust the lumbar exactly where you need it even if the pad slips down between the back and seat of a chair. But the pillow gets smashed over time and is no longer useful, sometimes the pillow falls off, and over time the velcro on the pillow rubs the material on the shell until it will no longer adhere (just rotate the cover so the back is in front and there will be a fresh side to wear out). I lasts about two years.

I now purchase the version with a built in pump. It lasted me five years of heavy travel until i finally destroyed it. negatives of this model are that it costs a little more and doesn't have adjustment on position of the lumbar. If you need lumbar adjustment, get this one.

I recently purchased the Obus Forme Lowback Backrest, along with the Seat Cushion. Although I have heard people rave about the excellent support, and they felt comfortable enough to me, I can't give them more than 2 stars. The material used in their construction drove me to distraction. This is obviously a personal preference type of thing. Other folks may have no issues with the material at all. These are just my feelings on the matter:

I found the texture of the fabric to be a little rough and it didn't allow easy movement when sitting on/leaning against it, which would drive me crazy after just a few hours at work. Also, when making any movements, the compression of the foam, and the friction between it and the fabric covering, made really annoying noises. It reminded me somewhat of snow compressing down when walking on it. The Backrest was even worse than the Seat Cushion because it had a thin plastic wrapping (looked sort of like shrink wrap or Saran wrap) around the foam inside, which made loud crinkling noises every time I even twitched. It was awful! However good the science behind the backrest and cushion is, the sound effects and unpleasant texture were distracting enough, to me at least, to return both items.

This backrest quite simply changed my current work chair from a piece of "Commercially Regurgitated Ass Parker" to a wonderful sitting experience in a single swoop. It's worth every penny and your back will thank you for it.

Color Name: Black
I have scoliosis(athletic build) so it is extremely important that I am able to position the lumbar support where it is needed or my back will become extremely fatigued. I have previously tried using other coworkers non-adjustable backrests, rolled up fabrics and even stuffed animals with no luck.

I been using this for about a year now and my back experiences no discomfort from the long hours working at the computer. Its high back allows for complete back support.Since the pad is attached with velcro I do not see any reason you couldn't sew additional lumbar supports(or use dog toys, stuffed animals)as needed.

It is very sturdy, possibly sturdy enough to use as a sled(not recommended). But since we get no snow where I work it does not appear I will be able to test my theory out. Though it does repel incoming rubberbands and paper balls extremely well.

Sounds cliche, but this backrest is worth its weight in gold to me. My back used to get so sore sitting in an office chair all day. Now that I have the backrest my back actually feels BETTER after having sat in my office chair for a while. It's always good to get up and stretch now and then though. If the seat cushion of your chair is not firm enough, I recommend purchasing this backrest along with the Obus Forme seat cushion that helps to keep you in the proper position.

If you're a big person, you may want to consider the wide backrest version. I'm less than 125 pounds, and this particular (smaller) model is fine for me.

It comes with a detachable pillow that can be placed wherever it's most comfortable for lumbar support. It attaches with velcro and could probably eventually fray the seat cover if it's moved around a lot. I don't think that will be a problem for me as I tend to leave it in the same spot most of the time. If the cover wears out, they sell replaceable covers for the backrest, but they're not cheap.
