 Most customers (80%) prefer the single padded seatbase model. Less padding means better and more controlled support to the pelvis and spine from the formed, shaped frame of the Backfriend. We do not (as a general rule) recommend using the double padded models in cars. With the extra height, some users can lock themselves against the roof! If you find the single padded version a little firm then a set of the real wool fleece covers make a world of difference offering optimum pressure dispersion without reducing the support from the frame of the backrest and seatbase parts.

* We do not (as a general rule) recommend using the double padded models in cars. Because of the extra height, some users can end up with restricted head room. For optimum pressure dispersion and luxurious comfort (unmatched by any synthetic fibre) we recommend the use of the real wool fleece covers.
** Not recommended for use in scooters or power wheelchairs

back friend indeed
- 22/09/2021
I have just received my 3rd backfriend and this time also bought the carrying case. These products are all very well made and the backfriend is a lifesaver. I use it in my car, in the office and take one when I need to sit on uncomfortable church seats. I<span class="extracommentsdots" id="extracommentsdots0">read more</span><span id="extracomments0" style="display:none"> would recommend them to anyone with a back problem</span>
very comfy backfriend
- 20/09/2021
I envied my friend for a number of years, but couldn't consider a backfriend a high priority. However, having tried one for a few hours in one sitting whilst recently on holiday with family, I decided there's no better time to get one than now! Very spe<span class="extracommentsdots" id="extracommentsdots1">read more</span><span id="extracomments1" style="display:none">edy and efficient process.</span>
Customer service above and beyond
- 08/09/2021
Parcelforce delivery at first attempt went wrong - what you want from customer service then becomes extra important! Parcelforce didn't leave a card meaning I was denied their auto phone system options so I contacted ME Design and Neil was brilliant in f<span class="extracommentsdots" id="extracommentsdots2">read more</span><span id="extracomments2" style="display:none">ollowing delivery and trying to smooth it all over. Haven't spent much time on the back friend itself yet but a different type of comfort knowing this level of service is behind it.</span>
Spare parts

I recently needed spare hinges for my backfriend of 15 years.
The service I received was impeccable.
Looking forward to many more years of relief from my Backfriend.
Many Thanks
Michael Bayliss.

Great service, great product. My wife has relied on her Backfriend for the best part of two decades now: we have just bought a second. Very swift service and a robust, reliable bit of kit. Many thanks!
