The Backfriend is a combined back rest and seat base which can be used in any seat or chair around the home, office or in vehicles. 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.
