 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.

I bought my original backfriend in 1995, following spinal surgery. It enabled me to visit a friend in Paris later that year. 26 years later I am treating myself to a new one!! It is wonderful in the car, and anywhere with soggy seats!
back friend indeed

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. Iread more
