MEDesign Backfriend
  • The MEDesign Backfriend is an ergonomic back support combining a back rest and seat support. 
  • Manufactured by MEDesign Ltd here in Southport, it is consultant designed to provide optimal lumbar support and thoracic support.
  • The back is height adjustable to suit the individual.
  • It is available in 7 colours and single or double padded* options.  And MEDesign offers a 14 day home trial.
  • Very light at 1.6kg (3.5lb) it folds for easy carrying with the built in handle.
  • For use in any seat or chair, anywhere, to provide spinal support and to relieve / prevent back ache and low back pain.
  • For travel comfort it is especially invaluable.  What Car magazine tested 12 back supports in cars and gave the MEDesign Backfriend (their only) 5 star rating.  They said the “MEDesign Backfriend is the only one we recommend: it can make a bad seat good. Beautifully designed to allow freedom of movement; excellent support while avoiding pressure points. Highly recommended”.
  • More than 600,000 are in use in 35 countries in the home, office and travelling. For details see the Links Section.

    * 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!
