* We do not (as a general rule) recommend using the double padded models in cars. Because of the extra height, some users can lock themselves against the roof!

A triumph of design and manufacture. This is my second 'Friend'. The first continues to give perfect service after several years, complete with the original hinges. Why the second then? We now have four floors so life is easier with two friends at differe...

Brilliant product, brilliant service

Thank you for your prompt attention sending the Backfriend to me. I know my daughter will be delighted to have a second Backfriend so one can remain in her car. A great product which has helped her tremendously as an Ankylosing Spondylitis sufferer.

Will not drive without it

Brought this item as I do a lot of driving it is wonderful worth every penny. It makes you feel so secured in the drivers seat and hugs your lower back.

Most Impressed

Many thanks for the Backfriend delivered yesterday. I was most impressed as I'd ordered it on Friday afternoon. I suffer from back problems so I'm very uncomfortable when driving without one in the car. Many thanks again. J S
