I have to sit in front of a computer 4-6 hrs a day for my work. I have had 2 back surgeries and have found that sitting is the worst enemy for back conditions. This product helps to reduce back stress caused by prolonged sitting.
Excellent seat , I bought three of it
it really works
Best seat ever
This is the best seat Ive had at work. My rear end always goes numb at work and hurts after an hour of sitting at my desk at work. With this gel seat my rear end doesnt go numb or hurt.
Superb for wheel chair bound husband
My husband is confined to a power wheelchair due to a generative brain disease. He also has diabetes, and was getting skin break-down on his tail bone with pain. This cushion has been a God-send for him and a boost to better health.
gel seat does not help with back and leg pain
Ordered two.Both of us used cushion for drives more than 1 hour and local. Cushion did not relieve back and leg pain for either of us. No cushioning effect, only elevation which we did not need.
So far, so good
I spend a lot of time at the computer and it seems to help my lower back
I bought this as a gift for my boss who does a lot of driving for our business. He was having lower back pain. He told me he has not been in any pain since using it.
Lower back gel seat
I bought this to help me through a back strain that had me laid up for 3 wks. I tried it several times and it did nothing for me. I found the gel kind of cold. The seat had a weird chemical odor. I think the concept is good and the quality is good but it did not work out for me.
This has been a welcome relief to my bad back. I find its a little heavy to move from location to location so I am most likely going to buy the smaller more portable version for my car.
I would indeed buy this product again
*I use it for my lower back at home, auto, office etc.
*The fact that is made to be portable, handle is great.
*I feel it is a little weighty, otherwise it is great.
Lower Back Pain Relieving Gel Seat
Was purchased for an upcoming trip to Europe. My husband is using it everyday on his recliner were he spends a lot of time sitting.
LOWER BACK PAIN RELIEVING GEL SEAT
My hussband is a long time lower back pain sufferer so I thought this would be the perfect Christmas gift. It seems too firm at first, but after a few minutes it gently molds to your body and does provide pain relief. It is very versatile and hes used it on long car trips, at his desk at work and on kitchen chairs at home. Although fairly large, it does fold in half. A lightweight carrying case or draw string bag would have been handy.
ok,not as good as I thought it would be
Gift to the wife who gets sciatica after sitting a while. It seems to provide the padding needed to protect the nerve.
This product does what it says.
This product is being used while I do video editing, for hours at a time. And is very comfortable.
Makes my work chair, an easy chair
I sit on it 10-12 hours a day at work
I would buy this again and again
I bought this because I sit all day in my office working. I am going to take it with me on my next road trip for comfort. It also helps my posture, it help you sit tall in your chair.
not as good as promised by phone rep.
thought product was just fair. nothing to write home about. I think its better though than cushion I was already using.
best cushion ever
most wonderful, comfortable cushion i have ever purchased - numerous surgeries left me unable to sit comfortably. first seat i have purchased that supports and distributes my weight and most importantly takes the pressure off my rear-end.
great product. use it on chair and car.
Use it in home, then fold it up and carry to car to use it.
It has proven to be very useful on long car trips and airline flights for back support and overall comfort in sitting for long periods of time.
I have told my coworkers about this cushion
I am a nurse and recently had to leave ICU after a knee replacement and find a desk job. I have never sit for long period of time in front of a computer at a desk. I have developed severe low back and pelvic pain from my new job. I purchased this cushion and have no more pelvic or low back pain. I sit for a hour at a time all day long with few opportunities to stand up and total hours at work 9 hrs. The cushion works all day.Thank you Sharper Image for such a quality product. My coworkers are going to purchase one for themselves.
Lower Back Pain Relieving Gel Seat
It Actually Works!
Ok, I admit it. When I opened the package I thought "Oh man, what a waste - really silly idea." But I unfolded the cushion and placed it on my chair and, Ill be darned, its really comfortable. Then an even bigger surprise - my back pain eased. I can now sit slaving over my computer, and though my soul is pained, my back is not.
It is the best seat for me
I now place it on the folding chair when I play bridge and find I can how sit comfortably for hours! It might even be more comfortable if this gel seat was sized smaller for me.
see all above
This product is made for a very large seat and is not particularly comfortable for those smaller people. My mother weighs 105 lbs and this item is too heavy to consider taking it to church, movies or sporting events.
Id buy this again!
I must use a wheelchair on a daily basis. This has helped prevent soreness, back pain and leg numbness and tingling from sciatic nerve pressure. Best cushion Ive found, and Ive tried several.
Offers great lumbar support. Can sit for hours without feeling strain. Great quality and price.
You can judge this book by its cover!
If you have lower back concerns,sitting for long periods for any reason this cushion is for you. Yes, its a little more firm than I suspected and takes a few days to adjust. But its worth it in temperture control and support for good posture and comfort.
Gel Seat, Yes!
My husband has had problems sitting for extended periods of time for years. At one time he fell and injured his tailbone. Today he took the gel seat with him to a golfing tournament and used it in his golf cart. He said even the bumpy ride did not bother him! That is why I am going to order another one right now. So he can keep one at home and one at his work place (he is a fishing boat captain where he sits in the wheelhouse for hours on end). I know he will be thrilled to get another one!
The design does make a difference
I bought this for my husband. He suffers from arthritis in his tail bone and needs to travel a lot for work. He says it is working great and does help to relieve his back pain when sitting for long periods of time. He has also taken it on the plane when he travels and it is easy to carry with you.
My spouse is handicapped and uses a wheelchair.
I have purchased numerous cushions,gel of various thickness & design. This is by far the best.
It provides the support and comfort needed and easily transports wherever we go.
Exactly What I Wanted!!
This cushion is exactly what I was looking for! I use it in my office. I sit all day doing accounting. It keeps me cool and my back and neck dont hurt anymore!! I even flip it around and sit with the back to front for an occassional change and it still relieves and soothes my lower back, neck, shoulders, and arms. Ahhhhhhhhh! There is a cheaper version that looks like this one but it does not work like this one does. Look at the pattern on the seat and you can see the difference. If you want top quality comfort that wont break down or only covers part of the chair, this product fits the bill perfectly. I am very satisfied. It is made very well and is very top quality materials. People told me that I could get it cheaper than TSI but I looked and looked and only found it for the same and more expensive price than TSI is selling it plus I got discounts and free shipping with TSI and it arrived very promptly. Overall, a great purchase all the wau around.
A solution to a real pain in the back...
As a disabled person Im bound to spending long hours sitting in a chair. Before using this product this would lead to severe backache and tailbone soreness. This product has relived both of these issues and now I can sit in comfort for long periods of time. I only wish Id have found this sooner. The gel used provides just the right amount of cushioning without giving the feeling of "sliding around" or "slipping". I would definitely recommend this cushion to anyone with soreness or irritation from sitting.
It conforms and helps keep me cool at swim meets. It is great for sitting on the hard bleachers!
A little too heavy
I do think its taking pressure off my spine.
This is what I needed
It makes sitting more comfortable wherever you are.
Gel seat pad is great
Ive been loooking for a lower back aid for my car. Tried several .This is by far the best. Only thing is, the big printing al lo9ver it is ugle. Otherwise, Its wonderful
I was skeptical, but I have been having unresolved back pain for years. I had to stop using most effective pain medications because of the damage they did to my stomach.After one week of use in my office chair at work, I am caustiously optimistic that this thing works. I was so impressed, I am buying another one for my chair at home.
Relief at last!
This cushion sits comfortably. It is not conspicuous on the chair. The best thing is that I feel better using it.
Great product received fast!
Relieves my wifes tail bone pain when sitting in an easy chair.
What a relief!
I use it everyday. Driving in comfort and where ever I need it to be comfortable and saves me from back pain.
Wonderful cushion for Coccyx (tailbone pain) problem
I suffer from coccyx problem for about a year and a half now. I have tried several other lumbar support cushions but they did not give me any relief until I found this one from Sharp Image. It is sturdy and firm enough so that when I sit down I still have the support while at the same time the cut in the center gives sufficient room to avoid pressure on my coccyx. This cut must have been done by some experimental trials or else it would not be cut like the way it is. All the other cushions I have are cut at one side in the shape of a horse shoe, and their materials shrink when being sat on so the coccyx touches the seat and hurts. This cushion somehow provides true relief for my tailbone aches as my tailbone does not touch the materials to avoid the pressure of impact. So far this is the best cushion that I have for relieving pain. If anyone knows a better one, I would appreciate the information. I have not tried to use it when I drive as I do not feel the pain the way I sit in the car seat. Perhaps I wil
Youll Get Back Pain from Carrying It!
I purchased this for my mother to improve her experience when sitting for long periods of time during travel. The seat material is so hard that it makes sitting worse! Ive tried it and agree. Also, it is shown as being easily transportable and is not. Its bulky, heavy and awkward.
Very Comfortable Seat
This gel seat works great on any hard or soft surface. You will love it.
Also, great in the car for long drives
Use it in the car. Very good product
This is a lifesaver!
This is an awesome gift for anyone with back issues....very portable and the design is comfortable.
Helps me sitting longer. Before couldnt sit for more than 1 hr with out being in pain
Firm for a gel seat
Makes sitting for hours at a time in front of a computer bearable. My first impressions out of the box were well made, heavy duty and comfortably firm. Not the squishy kind of gel I was expecting. Seems like it should last for a long time. Also, its the middle of winter here but the gel seat seems to keep its warmth and is not cold to the touch when first sitting down on it. Dont know if the opposite will be true in the summer.
Amazing support and relief!
Relieves pressure on sciatic nerve!
I would buy this product again and again
This cushion is for my husband who has Parkinsons. This makes it very difficult for him to get comfortable on different surfaces. The cushion is lightweight enough to transport easily to car, office, home allowing him overall comfortable seating.
Preforms as advertised ... will buy more
I use this product at home, and at the office ... gives my back relief I have not had for a long time.
NOT THE ITEM FOR ME
I purchased this item for my computer chair. I have some back issues and had hoped this was going to make sitting at the computer more comfy. However it is so very hard, firm and not at all cushiony. It now sits in storage, perhaps someone will want it, bit I seriously doubt it.
This will really save your back
Great product...well made and easy to transport. Used it on a long road trip in the car...what a difference. Like it for my desk chair as well.
Not a pain in the butt.
I have arthritis and my pelvic joints take a beating while sitting for lengthy periods. I have been looking for a product such as this one. I hope it lasts a long time.
It is a bit heavy for me to carry since I have arthritic hands, but luckily my husband is with me most of the time.
Relief from back pain not experienced
This cushion did not offer pain relief as promised. It does elevate user slightly at an gradual slope.
I got this for my husband who sits at a computer all day! He said it helps with his back pain so much!! So glad I saw this and purchased it for him!!
GEL SEAT WORKS WONDERS FOR WIFE
MY WIFE AND BROTHER-IN-LAW BOTH SWEAR BY THIS PRODUCT SO I ORDERED TWO MORE FOR MY SONS
too big for household chair; works well in car; getting the smaller version for air travel
This does help when sitting.
I use it at home and when I travel.
Unassuming Appearance -Great Product
Due to Physical Limitations, I spend a lot of time seated. Oh my goodness, what a difference in posture, aches and pains, overall comfort. Iv bought many, many cushions in the last few years. No more searching.....this is the one Ive been looking for!
Makes me more comfortable
I use this for most chairs and car seats. It has a handle and folds which makes it easy to carry. It has good gel cushioning and support for either hard chairs or soft ones. I find I sit straighter and it takes pressure off my back and tailbone.
Best seat in the house
I use the gel seat on my computer room chair. Since using the gel seat, I no longer experience lower back pain after sitting for a long time working on my computer.
great for trips
bought to use for car trips. Very comfortable. Great purchase.
Purchased for my husband for Christmas, he travels alot for work. Gives him the extra support he needs. Really helps his back & body alignment. Quality construction, light weight yet very effective/efficient. He LOVES it! Would definately recommend & purchase again.
After a short trial period, I returned this product because I did not like the feel of it. I felt it was too firm and didnt seem to feel right.
It is nice and compact and easy to carry but unless you travel alot I wouldnt recommend it.
I purchased this for my daughter so I can really evaluate it because she lives 1800 miles away. However, she in England right now and she told me, via email that the cushion made such a difference in her flight and that she "SIMPLY LOVES IT"
Firmer than I expected.
Adds structure to a seat.
Love it. Its great.
Sit in comfort
I was so happy with my larger pain relieving gel seat that I ordered a smaller one for my car. I use the larger one at home in my office or while watching TV.
Delivered as promised
The product is used from home to work and back daily.
Lower Back Pain Relieving Gel Seat
My fault: I didnt look carefully at the measurement from back to front. The seat is just too big (deep) for me to use in any setting, and Ive tried many. Also, its quite heavy to carry. Well made; perhaps better suited to a man.
Bought one 2+ years ago; its still in perfect shape. Moved it between home, car and work. Just bought another one to leave in my car.
Great for bad backs when sitting.
Wish they came in car seat colors; first one purchased was black; the newest purchase is gray.
Office chair and car seat
Used to be unable to sit at home and work for long periods due to pressure on Coccyx. Now can sit for hours with only minimal positional changes. I used to switch from cheek to cheek on my buttocks frequently with very little relief. Now nearly all that shifting is unnecessary! Comfort at last!
