Really glad I invested the money.

It has a lumbar support that is moveable and it is high enough to support my head comfortably.

I purchased this Obus Forme High-back Backrest and found it wanting. It helped some - but the basic design is flawed because of its concaved nature. I returned it and purchased the new Obus *Ultra* Forme Backrest and love it. It is more expensive, but the design is radically different than anything that I have seen and it works much better than this model. By the way, Amazon makes return rather easy if a product doesn't work out.

I have had Cervical Dystonia for several years. My type of this neurological condition causes my head to move back involuntarily. Many movie theaters, restaurants, etc., and even my Neurologist's waiting room have low backed chairs which make sitting very unpleasant for someone with my condition. When I heard about this product I knew I had to order one. This high-back backrest has significantly improved my quality of life and (since it is very light weight) I intend to carry it with me wherever I know I will be sitting in a low back chair for any length of time. I can't recommend this product highly enough.

I'm not one to regularly leave product reviews - mainly because most of what I've purchased on Amazon are books, and I really think that's up to each reader. But I AM going to leave feedback on this BACKREST. Background: I have a "bad back" (congenital defect where there is very little room up the center of the vertebrae for the spinal cord. I had a slipped disc at L4-L5 about 20 years ago (chiro), the onset of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome throughout my IT career (chiro), a whiplash at C4-C5 in a head on collision (chiro), a complete "blowout" of my L4-L5 that had me on the floor screaming for 911 which involved morphine and carrying me on a board to the ambulance for an emergency fusion of my L4-L5 (neurosurgeon, titanium plate), and NOW, my C4-C5 (never healed properly), after trying EVERYTHING with my great chiropractor, had an MRI and the vertebrae are damaging my spinal cord, causing my entire right arm to go numb if I hold it above waist level for any length of time. So I will have my SECOND back surgery December 21st, 2010 (ho ho ho...). SOOOO... I have been around the block with back/neck pain. I have tried too many chairs to mention. NONE ever were "right." My last chair (executive leather) was HORRID once I sat in front of my Mac with it, and went to Salvation Army. My "new" chair is "okay," but I just didn't have the support I needed to sit in it for long hours in front of the computer and it caused middle back pain (which is ACTUALLY what got me seeing my chiro again - it was after a period of adjustments that the C4-C5 problem became apparent). I bought a "chiro Backrest" (The Ultimate? - a Canadian company) from his office, but that was useless - no support at all. I was reluctant to give this Backrest a try - but I'm not about to sell my Mac Pro and just use my laptop because of my back.Read more ›

I love the high back Obusforme. It has a lumbar support that is moveable and it is high enough to support my head comfortably. I have cervical dystonia, a neuromuscular disorder that periodically leaves me with a weak neck that doesn't want to hold up my head. I just sit back and my Obusforme supports me everywhere. I highly recommend it. Delivery was prompt and the product was in great condition. Thanks, Obusforme.

I have a bad back, but I have never driven a car that was too uncomfortable for me to sit in. I just bought a brand new car and realized after driving it around a while that the seat was hurting my back. I had test driven the car but did not notice that the seat was uncomfortable until a longer car ride. No one else, including friends I have that own the same car, have problems with the seat so I did not even think twice about it. I ended up having chronic pain all day and night as I drove the car more and more. Instead of enjoying my new car, I was dreading having to drive it because it was so painful. I tried many, many back supports and this was the first that worked for me. Not only did it work, but it actually soothed my back and made it feel better! After one full day with about an hour and a half worth of driving, my back is barely bothering me anymore! I am so thankful that I found this...now I can enjoy my new car without back pain!

The Obus Forme High-Back Backrest is an absolute must for people with back problems. It is easy to bring along to movie theaters, restaurants, dinner parties etc. We started out buying out one for my mother in-law and when we tryed it out we went ahead and got one for both my husband and me. Of course we also bought the seat that match the back rest, and we have no problems going out to public events anymore. We bought some velcro to attach the seat and the backrest together so they "flap" around when carried, and it works. My morther in-law bring her seat to church every day.

First let me say I have looked for a backrest with a high back (meaning it's higher than standard office/computer chairs) for a few years. I needed to replace a previously owned backrest. As a person living with Fibromyalgia a backrest is essential, this backrest with a adjustable lumbar pad meets my needs. I use the adjustable pad on the backrest to help support my neck area. Sitting at a computer can put a strain on the neck and shoulder muscles. Thus anyone living with sore, achy or stiff muscles would welcome the soft cushion feel and support of this backrest. For me a full broad (width) backrest would have been ideal, but I'm very happy with this backrest and the adjustable lumbar pad. The Obus Forme Company has a website and a Customer Service Dept. They included a thank you letter and a business card (indiv product rep) in the package I received if I needed further assistance. I would recommend this backrest to friends plus advise others to check out the product line for this company.
