The back plays a major role in your health and well-being. Chronic back pain is among the top two causes of long-term disability, and lower back pain a leading factor in lost time at work. Chronic back pain affects one in every 10 people, often so debilitating that it interferes with sufferers' daily lives, severely restricting normal activities. Back pain in the workplace is common, with nearly all workers struggling with back pain and discomfort at some point. On average, adults spend 11.5 hours daily sitting. To alleviate stress on the spine and offer immediate relief of back pain and discomfort while seated, ordinary pillows won't do. Unlike other pillows, the new bonmedico® lumbar cushion is ideally designed to support your back and provide lasting relief. For car or airplane travel, working at the computer, or any situation that requires long periods of sitting, the bonmedico® back pillow's viscoelastic memory foam is the ideal solution that conforms to the body to support the lumbar spine and provide a comfortable, ergonomic seating position. The orthopaedic back pillow has a breathable, zippered, removable cover that can be washed at 30°. All materials are non-toxic. The lumbar pillow comes in a convenient carrying case.
