The Backfriend is a combined backrest and seatbase which can be used in any seat in any vehicle** - cars, vans, lorries, trains, trams, buses or aeroplanes.
What Car magazine stated “the MEDesign Backfriend is the only one we recommend. It can make a bad seat good.”
Light and portable to carry and use anywhere - car, home, office, leisure, travel.
Get the same degree of support and comfort wherever you sit.
Single (SP) or double-padded (DP)* seatbase options available.
8 upholstered fabric colour options.
MEDesign offers a 14 day home trial.
Manufactured in Britain and exported to 35 countries worldwide.
*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
