MEDesign Backfriend Back Support has been designed by a leading orthopaedic consultant to enhance the comfort and support of chairs at home, work and when travelling. Because there is no fitting needed the back support is suitable from pretty much any chair and works well on a car seat
MEDesign Backfriend Back Support is a combined backrest and seat support that acts as a seat. The design of chairs and seats does not always provide good postural support. As a result, many people find themselves suffering from posture-related pain, including backache, which eventually could lead to a musculoskeletal injury. Backfriend is a very effective way of providing an enhanced level of comfort and support to protect people against injury and pain related to sitting.
Backfriend provides improved lumbar and thoracic support and is height adjustable so it can be set to suit your needs and provide maximum anatomical spinal support. The support is available with single or double padding to add extra comfort and the padding is made from fire-resistant CMHR polyether foam.
Above all else Backfriend Back Support is adaptable. Whether your chair is soft and sagging, or hard and upright as a church pew it will bring you relief from posture-related pain and discomfort.
Backfriend is constructed from very strong material but is still light to carry and the inbuilt handle enables you to easily take it wherever you go.
Ergonomic products can significantly improve your health and wellbeing at work and allow you to perform at your best. Good sitting posture means your ears, shoulders and pelvis are kept in alignment. A back support promotes this good posture as it physically prevents you from slumping which can cause flexion stress. Back flexion can lead to discomfort and in the longer term could cause a musculoskeletal injury. With a back support in place, you should sit so that your back remains flush with the backrest as this provides the correct amount of support. Similarly, the support should not push your back forwards as this can overly accentuate the natural curvature of your spine.
If you have an ergonomic office chair, the chances are your chair will have some form of built-in back support and better still the chair will have been specifically designed to suit your body requirements. However, there may well be many instances where the place you sit has inappropriate back support, if any at all. A portable ergonomic back support is perfect for these situations as it enables you to convert your chair into something with improved postural support. Depending on the portability of the back support this can also be suitable while commuting on public transport, in your car and when flying.
If you have had an injury, a back support could help aid the rehabilitation process. The support will allow you to relax so your body can begin and maintain the healing process, free from stress and strain.
