Had my Back Friend Seat since 1993/4 and always keep it out on a chair so it is there if I need it, would not be without it. Have had to order new Hinges and they have arrived within 48 hours from ordering to processing to delivery. Thank you for efficient service.

Really quick delivery. Surprised to find the hinges were still available for a Backfriend that must be at least 20 years old.

A real friend

I have used a Backfriend for several years both in the home and the car - it successfully mitigates the pain from an ageing back! I go nowhere without it.
Fantastic support

The backfriend has been really good at supporting my back when sitting ,it is very easy to transport anywhere. But check you adjust the hinges for your needs. I lost my clip after 2 months when I took my backfriend to the cinema. Replacement hinges are available at £5

Not quite the same as the orginals but very easy to fit. Pleased to have my seat as new, wouldn't be without it. Thank you for prompt service.
Fantastic for car, festivals, seminars, classes
- 28/07/2018
You know those awful chairs you usually find at seminars? The ones that make you so uncomfortable that you cannot concentrate on the lecture? Enter Backfriend! I’m so glad my UK friend let me take a test-sit at a music festival—now I keep it in my car, and take it to any place I’m going to have to sit for an hour or more. Makes any seat a comfortable seat!

Miracle back rescue!
- 17/01/2018
I am forever grateful to the inventors of Backfriend as without it I would not have been able to continue sitting at a desk to work, which would have meant the end of my working life. I had tried all other means of correcting my sitting posture including a kneeler chair, even Pilates, but nothing worked for me. I have congenital hyperlordosis which causes inflammation of the sacroiliac joint and have always had trouble standing or sitting but at the age of 48 my back had had as much as it could take. I had known about the Backfriend for years but hadn't thought it would help much, but at the point of desperation I decided to try it. Within a couple of days I was able to sit without pain; it still requires some discipline to sit correctly of course but I would recommend this to anyone with lower back pain. Give the inventor a knighthood!

Two Fold Support!

I purchased my Backfriend in the 1980's when it was a boon in overcoming a back problem, both in the car and at my desk.

Currently mitigating the affects of arthritis and it needed a new hinge. Again MEDesign support (after sales this time) ensured my 'old friend' was once again supportive.

Totally satisfied customer

My back friend is out 30 years old and has seen me through many difficult spells when it has been
absolutely effective.
A month ago, incredibly, one of the hinge straps broke! I found the website, unchanged, on the back of the chair. The website couldn't be easier. I ordered on Saturday and received two straps on the Monday. Great service!

This is the third back friend I have bought. The first two lasted over twenty years. This latest one was bought for the extra padding on the seat.
