* 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

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.
