Many people experience back pain. Working a desk and other sedentary jobs or long car rides that require prolonged sitting can negatively affect posture too. As a writer, I'm constantly engaging core muscles and straightening up as I find myself hunched over a keyboard. BackJoy's Posture+ solves a big problem.
BackJoy is a groundbreaking American company in posture improvement and back wellness. They create innovative solutions to relieve and prevent back pain.
Why we love it:
BackJoy's Posture+ gently aligns the spine in the neutral position, as it relieves pressure from the tailbone. The patented design encourages optimal posture and engages core muscles so you can sit more comfortably, and correctly. The seat sells for $39. and comes in six colors. My test seat was hot pink.
This is not a cushion. It contains APS™ Technology and Advanced Core Materials:
Their patented Applied Postural Science (APS™) corrects your posture by its curved design. The device tilts, cups, and floats your pelvis upright so you can find your most balanced and comfortable posture.
You move when you sit and this seat moves with you and adapts to your movements to provide constant strain free comfort and optimal posture. Effortless and opens up that sacral area that tightens up and causes pain for so many.
Bonus is that your core muscles are engaged when you sit in it as your back is supported, resulting in more comfort, stronger abs and far less fatigue after sitting for long periods of time.
This makes a supremely useful and thoughtful gift for under $40. Can be used in the car, sporting events, concerts, plane travel, office and home use.
One size fits most- if you are large, over 300 pounds, this is not for you.
