  • Description
  • Reviews
  • Very occasionally we get requests from customers who wish to purchase just the Backrest or Seatbase parts of the Backfriend as separate items.
  • To obtain the maximum benefit, the Backrest and Seatbase should ideally be used as the combined Backfriend unit.
  • But, needs vary and both parts can be supplied separately.
  • The Backrest can be supplied WITH holes and velcro if it will ever be attached to a seatbase or WITHOUT holes and velcro if it will never be attached to a seatbase.

One of the best things I've ever bought.
- 25/04/2019
I've been a taxi driver for twenty five years. After about seven years I started to suffer with lower back pain which made working difficult. I bought a back friend on a try or return basis. For the first ten or twelve days I was unsure if I liked it but <span class="extracommentsdots" id="extracommentsdots0">read more</span><span id="extracomments0" style="display:none">then it just became more comfortable each day and my back pain disappeared never to return. Even when I bought a new taxi with a posh seat I still found the back friend to be the most comfortable. I think that using a back friend when driving helps build up the core muscles in your body and initially it takes a few days for this to happen before it becomes completely comfortable, so my advice is to stick with it for the trial period and you will reap the benefits.
Finally I'd just like to thank whoever invented the back friend for making my work life a pleasure.</span>
Best back help ever

I've been using a Backfriend seat base for driving for over 20 years, and wouldn't be without it. It's given back my joy of driving, which had disappeared in the years I struggled with persistent low back pain. I'm an Alexander Technique teacher, and reco<span class="extracommentsdots" id="extracommentsdots1">read more</span><span id="extracomments1" style="display:none">mmend the seat base to my clients who are having difficulties with their driving posture and comfort. I couldn't be without my Backfriend - honestly, everyone could benefit from one, back pain or not.</span>

Within hour of seat arrival, I could feel the difference. My back pain was easing off. I even tried the long run in the car as well and I was felling so great I will fully recommend the seat to anybody with back problem.
Thanks Medesign.

Good Afternoon from a regular customer.

I just wanted to tell you how happy I was that your website is so easy to use from overseas. As an expatriate Brit who currently lives in Brazil and has a U.S. billing address, it is very hard to order anything a<span class="extracommentsdots" id="extracommentsdots3">read more</span><span id="extracomments3" style="display:none">t all from the UK. I usually end up asking a family member to order for me.

I did not have any trouble with your website because it makes provision for separate billing and delivery addresses. My compliments to your professionalism and I look forward to receiving my latest Backfriend when I am in the UK in April. I believe this is number 5 that I have ordered over the years since I first had back surgery 30 years ago -- it goes everywhere with me in cars, trains and aeroplanes and has attracted much interest along the way.</span>

Just wanted to say a big thank you to MEDesign for my Backfriend which arrived first thing this morning. I am chuffed to bits with it and looking forward to taking it with me to my regular haunts which have uncomfortable seats. Your service has been so<span class="extracommentsdots" id="extracommentsdots4">read more</span><span id="extracomments4" style="display:none"> efficient and enjoyable (the gentleman who took my telephone order has a wonderful sense of humour).</span>
