Review Content AWESOME!!! It was a gift for my mom and she loved everything about it! Christmas present for my wife Christmas present for my wife with a bad back. She wont open it until Christmas. Great for sleep apena 1. Great for watching TV and working in bed. 2. Helps with my sleep apnea Perfect! This is a great back rest. I love it! Not as comfortable as it looks Not comfortable at all. Cup holder not easily accessible when sitting in chair. Massage rotors stick out and you cant lean back in chair. Chair has terrible chemical smell My wife loves it This was a Christmas gift to my wife who has back pain. Excellent gift Very use full when relaxing to read or watch TV. Make arms longer, please I love the concept of this product, unfortunately, the arms are too short. My elbow was in the cup holder, I had to twist around to reach the controls. I am not a big person - 52". PLEASE MAKE THIS PRODUCT WITH LONGER ARMS - I WOULD BUY IT IN A HEARTBEAT! Many Thanks. Lovin the chair Love the warm massage while I a reading a book. Great idea and a great buy I dont "back" this product The massage features are very loud & ineffective. Very disappointed w/this purchase. On a better note: It arrived on time. :) Comfortable for our girls illness Our teen daughter needs something warm along with massage to fight off her brain cancer. I hope hospice would remove her and let her back to normal life. Pray for her. so cozy! I use this on my couch or in my bed. It provides the luxury of massage and heat, while keeping my back in good posture. Great reading light and storage for magazines and a beverage. I would definitely order again This will be a gift for a well deserved person. Convenient and effective I bought this because other ratings said it could be used on a variety of types of chairs or in bed. It is very firm. I hadnt realized the arms zip off (which help it fit a chair or can be more easily stashed under the bed), and it also comes with a lightweight zippered carrying tote. With the attached reading light, I can see me taking it along on car trips when visiting friends or staying in hotels. The arms are a little tricky to get zipped on. I just wish it automatically shut off after 15 minutes which is the recommended limit. Great Fathers Day Gift All I know is that he loves it. He is difficult to buy for so I am very happy with this product. I really enjoy the backrest, just wish heater was warmer I had spinal surgery two months ago, and the backrest is perfect for me in bed! The massager really helps my back! Only setback for me is that the heater doesnt warm up enough for me. I still would recommend this to anyone. So far So good! My wife is enjoying it! The product is used primary in the bedroom to work on PC, watch flat screen &/or read. It has the added advantage of being lightweight, thus mobile, re: to the family room, outside, etc. Not comfortable Good theory Finally, a great way to relax in bed I am the type of person who spends a good amount of time in bed. I read, work and watch television so much more comfortably with this backrest. So many traditional backrests are not sturdy enough to withstand a great deal of use. Often, I have experienced a good deal of lower back and shoulder pain from these backrests. However, I decided to invest a little more money in this backrest, and it really paid off. I also love the storage capacity, so you are not fumbling for remote controls and other items that you might experience in a traditional backrest. Great item, and typical of the unique and excellent quality of the Sharper Image. This was the best thing I have ever got. Im 60 years old. Always have lower back pain after any exertion. And, Im always cold. I live alone so dont like to turn the heat up and the heat feels so good and does wonders on my back muscles along with the massage. I never get anything for myself and for the first time I purchased myself the perfect "something" I always wanted. Sharper Image has the reputation for quality products and I cant argue there. Thank you for a great product, timely & promt delivery. Oh, quick delivery and I was pleasantly shocked to see that it came in a cloth carrying case!! Nice Purchase Nice product. I sit up in bed a lot, and this is perfect for that. Wonderful Like the chair, but arms could be a little longer Wife Loves it Bought this for my wife for Christmas. She loves it! The heat and massage works great and the flexible reading light is very useful. Awesome sauce Great for my lower back after standing all day Highly recommend This was brought for my daughter in graduate school. She loves the comfort of it. The overheadlight and cupholder is perfect for her. Almost perfect Bought this for my husband to use after surgery. Its great, except for the massagers. They stick out so far that its like hard rocks sticking into your back. Hes going to carefully remove them and Ill sew it back up and itll be perfect! The light and cup holder additions are a great plus. A little to hard Not as soft as I would have expected product arrived on time, in good condition and as advertised Evening reading in bed. Light is handy. Warming back massage is nice Backrest review I wanted to use this on the bed while I use my tablet and watch TV or do crosswords. It is not that comfortable because of the massage controls, and it is recommended not to place anything in front of the controls. If the controls are not on, the light is not on. Simply a Winner! Great product, light, non-intrusive, comfortable, a winner ! Wife Loves It! My wife and boys love this product! Usable Does what its supposed to do as a bed seat for TV and reading. Massage and heat are good. Controls are in an awkward place, especialy if one has arthritis, back problems, or similar movement limiting issues. Good Product I like this product. It helps with my minor lower back pain. The heat option is a plus too! this is a christmas present. havent tried it yet, got this 4 my hubby as a christmas present...sure hopes it works as advertised! will tell you how we like it once its opened. thanx Quality and comfort This a quality product that also combines a design that is comfortable. The pockets on the sides are a smart place for remotes, your cell phone,reading material or medicine. The vibrating massage settings are welcomed without becomeing a distraction. The added heat feature is truely icing on the cake. The overhead light is a detailed addition that is both practical and stylish. This backrest swung right into my wheelhouse of needs. If I had to choose, it was my favorite gift this Christmas season. Great I gave this to my son for Christmas. He loves it so far. I am hoping it is durable. Good purchase This was what I was looking for but not quite as comfortable as I would have hoped. Overall still worth the money. The heat and massage features are great. Great option as a gift I bought the product as a gift to my mother and she loved it! It`s very versatile as you can remove the arms if you want to. It has only three buttons so it´s really easy to use. The led lamp iluminites perfectly and can be directed. The only thing I think should be improved is the cushion confort as it is too rigid from my point of view. In conclusion I totally recomend this product! Backrest I use this product at home on a bed with a beautiful, but open wrought iron headboard. It enables me to read in bed while also having back support. great product Gave as a gift to my daughter. She love it. Backrest massager Very nice! Good pruduct So this is a great product compared to other ones that you get on the market, my biggest problem with it is I am 62" so my arms cover the cup holder making it useless. The massager is really nice in it. Great Idea I bought this for my husband who has chronic lower back pain and relays on back rests on the couch but never has he had one with so much functionality. It soothes away pain while providing lazy Sunday comfort and storage for remotes, phones, and snacks. Works Great with Features We have been looking for a chair to use in bed for awhile. This was a gift for my husband and he loves it. Our kids do, too. The warming massager is good, the light is great, and it is very comfortable. This is not soft so you do not fall into it but get support. The width is smaller than expected. It fits okay but you definitely do not have extra room between the arm rests. I would buy this again. "It does the job" I use this right before I go to sleep. It totally relaxes me and eases the stress from a busy day. I will buy another one for downstairs Great for sitting up in the bed reading or watching tv. Just got it today and love it so far! Super nifty and works great It was an amazing gift my boyfriend will love it Best thing ever. My son enjoys the pillow, the best part is the massage. The worst part was to get the smell out. But its much better now. Warming backrest massager After a long day at work, this is the best part of coming home. Perfect bed accesory This is great for me when Im sitting in bed doing crafts or want to relax and watch movies or read a book. The warming aspect is what I really love about the product, its great on cold nights. Might get one for my sister. I would by this product again and again This is Carol and not Connie. I gave this to her as a gift. This is the second time I have given this as a gift. The first friend really enjoys the back rest. I love it! Use it all the time very relaxing and warm no problems with design or comfort. A few more rollers up higher and down lower would be nice. Comfort in bed at last! Very comfortable backrest. The light and cup holder are icing on the cake. Enjoy the massage feature, too. Nice product The backrest massager is used to watch TV and read while in bed. My wife enjoys the heat and massage features of this product and the lamp is excellent for reading. At this point the only negative thing I can say about this is that it had an usual smell for a few days but that did go away. Great Gift I gave one of these to both of my best friends and they love it. Warming Backrest Massager Great for sitting with your laptop for hours! Nice looking Always wanted something like this. Especially, with a massager and lighting. I immediately opened up the box and plugged it in. Everything worked, except the lighting. Does not light when I switch it on. Do you have any suggestions on what to do? Otherwise, the massager is nice looking and feels great when having a massage. Great Product! This product is extremely comfortable and friendly. I higly recommend it! quality and comfort My wife is an avid reader and chef. She will read sometimes for hours to simplify and perfect a recipe. The back rest is a bonus as she commented to me. She loves the massage and heat as she enjoys a good book and some research. Its a hit and a good investment for comfort. Works better than most others at this pr Gift for my wife who has been looking for a good heat/massager for a long time. This one really works as advertised so far. Connecting the zippers can be a challenge for one person. Set the controls before you settle in, they can be difficult to find and activate once you are seated. Ive used in three times since delivered (well packaged) and find it very relaxing, but the timer to turn the heat off after 15 minutes does not work. Stay awake... Not what was expected. Disappointing! Bulky, not at all relaxing. It actually hurt my back. This comes in handy Great for watching TV and reading in bed. Great product I use this product in my bed because I need to sleep with my head up.
