The Backfriend is a combined back rest and seat base which can be used in any seat or chair including garden chairs. Designed by a leading orthopaedic consultant, it is contoured to give the correct support to both the lumbar and thoracic regions of the spine. Upholstered and fabric covered, it is very light. It folds for carrying with the built in handle. More than 600,000 are in use, in over 35 countries, and many of the world’s leading companies find them beneficial.
The Backfriend is available in 8 colours with a choice of thickness of padding* (on the seatbase only). The height of the back rest is adjustable to suit the individual user. Medically, orthopaedically and ergonomically it is unrivalled.

*We do not (as a general rule) recommend using the double padded models in cars. Because of the extra height, some users can lock themselves against the roof!
** For optimum pressure dispersion and luxurious comfort (unmatched by any synthetic fibre) we recommend the use of the real wool fleece covers.
