“I love my new foundation. I think I would have stayed a sceptic if I hadn’t experienced the shift in the spinery offices for myself. Straight away my posture was so much better and everything just felt stronger and more engaged. Now I have one in work, one at home and my daughter takes hers to school with her. I’ll continue to recommend the spinery to friends and family and anyone else who will listen! Great people too.”

What Research Is on Back Support Cushions & Back Pain?

Hey there! Dr. Lawrence Woods here, and I want to talk to you about the importance of proper posture and support when it comes to reducing back pain. As a chiropractor, I’ve seen firsthand how poor posture can lead to all sorts of discomfort and pain. That’s why I’ve designed an ergonomic seat cushion that incorporates the same mechanism of action as seat wedges to promote proper posture and support. Here are some studies that support the use of my seat cushion:

Study 1: “Effect of a high-density foam seating wedge on back pain intensity when used by 14 to 16-year-old school students: a randomised controlled trial”

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0031940611004238

Description: This study found that using a high-density foam seating wedge reduced average self-reported back pain among school students. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of using high-density foam to provide proper support and comfort for the user, reducing the risk of back pain.

Study 2: “Novel natural rubber latex memory foam”

https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Roslim-Ramli/publication/332874306_Novel_natural_rubber_latex_memory_foam/links/5da6769192851caa1ba629b4/Novel-natural-rubber-latex-memory-foam.pdf

Description: This study found that natural latex foam can offer proper spine and joint support, prevent back pain and improve blood flow. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the use of natural latex foam as a material that provides the necessary support and comfort to the user.

Study 3: “Sitting biomechanics, part II: optimal car driver’s seat and optimal driver’s spinal model”

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0161475499700205

Description: This study found that electromyography readings favoured a 110-degree angle between the seat and the back of the chair. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of having an angle of 110 degrees for comfort and proper spinal alignment.

Study 4: “Are you really sitting comfortably? A field study of a forward sloping chair and sedentary low back pain sufferers”

https://journals.co.za/doi/pdf/10.10520/AJA03796175_1408

Description: This study found that users who sit with an “open” trunk-thigh angle (approximately 110-120 degrees) will be more comfortable. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of having an open angle between the trunk and the thigh for comfort and proper spinal alignment.

Study 5: “Sitting—an electromyographic and mechanical study”

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.3109/17453676608989432

Description: This study found that an angle of 110 degrees between the seat and the back of the chair and the back should be curved to fit a spinal 1-2 cm lordosis. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the importance of having a curved back that fits a spinal lordosis for comfort and proper spinal alignment.

Study 6: “Study on Resilience of Mattress Foam and Body Pressure Distribution Characteristics of Mattress”

https://www.scientific.net/AMR.415-417.281

Description: This study found that the resilience of latex foam was better and the body pressure distribution was improved. This is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design as it supports the use of latex foam for its resilience and improved body pressure distribution for comfort and proper support.

Study 7: ‘Latex reduced peak body pressure and achieved a more even distribution of pressure compared with polyurethane across different postures.

https://www.magonlinelibrary.com/doi/abs/10.12968/denn.2010.6.8.49208

Description: This study provides evidence that latex materials can effectively reduce peak body pressure and distribute pressure more evenly compared to polyurethane materials. This information is relevant to my ergonomic seat cushion design because it highlights the importance of using materials that are able to provide adequate support and cushioning, while also reducing the risk of pressure injuries. This study supports my decision to use latex as a primary material in the design of my seat cushion, as it helps to prevent discomfort and improve posture.

What Causes Back Pain?

Hey, Dr Lawrence Woods here! As a chiropractor, I understand that back pain is a widespread problem that affects millions of people globally. From my experience, I’ve come to realize that there are two main types of back pain – acute and chronic. Acute back pain typically lasts for a few days to several weeks before subsiding, while chronic back pain persists for 12 weeks or longer.

Lower back pain is the most common type of back pain, and it can be caused by a variety of factors. These include:

Certain lifestyle factors can also increase the risk of developing back pain. Overweight and elderly individuals are more prone to back pain, as are those who lead sedentary lifestyles or have poor posture. Individuals who sit for prolonged periods of time, especially with inadequate back support, are at an increased risk of developing back pain. Stress, anxiety, and depression have also been linked to an increased risk of back pain.

As a chiropractor, I usually recommend that individuals maintain regular movement and exercise, along with using proper seat cushions that may help prevent back pain. A healthy back also depends on getting enough quality sleep, as poor sleep can contribute to back pain and impact overall well-being. Therefore, having a good sitting posture during the day and a proper sleeping position at night can help individuals maintain a healthy back and minimize the risk of developing back pain.

Chiropractor Explains: Ergonomic Pillows VS Orthopedic Seat Cushions?

Hi there! As a chiropractor and seat cushion designer, I’m often asked about the differences between the three main types of seat cushions: ergonomic, orthopedic, and memory foam. Let me give you a rundown of each type.

Ergonomic seat cushions are designed to help you sit in a way that promotes good posture. These cushions are made to support your spine and hips, reducing the amount of pressure on your back and joints. By using an ergonomic seat cushion, you can avoid common posture problems that can lead to pain and discomfort.

Orthopedic seat cushions, on the other hand, are designed by medical experts such as chiropractors and physical therapists. These cushions are meant to provide targeted support and relief for people who suffer from chronic back pain or injuries. They often feature special cutouts or contours that help to redistribute pressure and provide additional support where it’s needed.

Finally, there’s memory foam seat cushions. While I’ve worked with memory foam for many years, I’ve grown to prefer other materials such as natural latex. This is because natural latex is more comfortable, supportive, and less toxic. That being said, memory foam seat cushions are made from a special type of foam that molds to your body shape, providing customized support that can be beneficial for people with certain pain conditions.

In summary, whether you’re looking for a cushion to improve your posture, relieve chronic pain, or provide customized support, there’s a seat cushion out there that can meet your needs.

25 reviews for The Spinery® Ergonomic Seat Cushion | Seat Chair Wedge

  1. Radek Długosz

    I spend a lot of time in front of the computer and frequently experience back pain. In September 2022, I made the decision to purchase the Spinery® Ergonomic Seat Cushion | Seat Chair Wedge. I can tell a difference since I started using this product. Anyone who spends a lot of time sitting should consider it. Highly Recommended!!!

  2. Dermot O’Mara

    This is my first time ever to leave a product review and I must. Total satisfaction! These products are amazing, deliver wonderful sleep and you wake without aches and refreshed. Best investment ever! The foundation is also wonderful and my posture is so improved. Great service all round.
    You too deserve the best.

  3. Justin Emery

    At first I got the cushion as I started working from home and I must say, that sitting for long hours has not been an issue at all ever since. The cushion really gives you the feeling that you are sitting with the correct posture.

    Then I wanted to see if the Dream pillow holds what it promises. And although it is not as soft as a usual pillow, I seem to fall into a much deeper sleep when using it. On top of that my neck mobility has also improved noticeably.

    After that I didn´t need much convincing to try the mattress. How much more rest would I be able to get and does a mattress completely free of chemicals really improve my sleep? Being able to purchase the mattress by paying for it in 6 installments helped nicely.

    I´ve been sleeping on the Fitzwilliam mattress for nearly 5 months now and from day 1 onwards waking up and jumping out of bed is not hard at all anymore. As soon as I wake up, I just get up. That´s 100% down to the fact, that every single one of my nights has been restful with this mattress. You notice of how high the quality of the mattress is as soon as you sit down on it, you can tell it´s good for back pain prevention – it´s firm and soft at the same time.
    The Spinery´s Fitzwilliam mattress is definitely the best mattress I have ever used.

    You are not just buying a cushion, a pillow or a mattress, but you are investing into the quality of your life. Because the better the night-period of restoring for your body is, the better your days become. That´s what I can say about using Sinead´s and Lawrence´s wonderful products.

  4. Owen Laverty

    The Spinery is a go to for my office setup to ensure good posture and alignment. Their products and services make a significant difference to my overall health and productivity. The Foundation has changed a rather ordinary office chair into a great solution.

  5. James Coghlan

    Having had long standing lower back & neck problems, finally making solid progress with Lawrence. I’m also learning more about seating & standing posture, and having purchased the seat foundation, this is helping at my desk as I use my PC. Thanks Lawrence & Sinead & The Spinery!

  6. Mark Magennis

    I was sitting too long and incorrectly at a desk job for 20+ years, so I have not been kind to my back. This has had knock on impacts on the rest of my body. Between their treatments, education and by using two of their products (The Foundation chair wedge and Dream Pillow), The Spinery has made a huge difference to my health and life without resorting to medication or surgery. You have nothing to lose by trying them out.

  7. Andrew Rhatigan

    I have both the seat insert and pillow from The Spinery and they are amazing. I also went to them for treatment and not only are they extremely knowledgeable but they are very client focused and friendly.

    I could not recommend them more highly.

  8. James Coghlan

    I recently purchased the chair foundation, and that’s a great help with how I sit & use my desktop PC. Getting treatment is only part of the solution however, and correcting sitting & standing posture is also very important, and its hard teaching an old dog new tricks. Thanks Lawrence & Sinead!

  9. James Kavanagh

    Originally came Lawrence as I was suffering from chronic daily back pain and thought that my back could not be fixed. Since seeing Lawrence, almost all of my days are now pain-free. I learned a lot about the importance of good posture from him. Their ‘Foundation’ product is fantastic, both in terms of preventing and alleviating back pain while sitting down, whether at home or in the office. He is truly outstanding at what he does. 👏

  10. Aidan

    I really like my Spinery pillow. I have been sleeping better since I got it. The recess for my shoulder makes so much sense and the firmness is just right. I have recommended it to my brother David and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you, Sinead and Lawerence, at The Spinery!

  11. Debbie

    I love the pillow! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    Since December, when I got the dream pillow as a Christmas present, I have been sleeping better, feeling more rested as I breathe easier during my sleep. I believe this is linked to the fact that I know I am sleeping on natural materials, but also my neck and head position is improved. With my neck feeling more supported.

    The pillow encouraged me to sleep on the side – it got some getting used to as I used to sleep on my stomach, but after a night or two, I was able to sleep comfortably on my side which felt better on my neck and lower back.

    Sometimes I would wake up with lower back pain, now I realize that lying on my stomach may have contributed to that because my lower back feels better in the morning now too.

    All in all, the dream pillow is a thoughtfully designed, fantastic product. It feels very soft and comfortable, as well as being supportive and helps me sleep better.

  12. Karin Brueckmann

    The foundation truly changed the way I sit. Slouching is something from the past – as soon as I sit down the core is instantly engaged. There is no more tired or achy back at the end of the day from sitting at the desk. It’s designed nicely and fits on all chairs – it goes most places I go. The only downside would be, the new way of sitting is so comfortable, that you will avoid sitting on anything else.

  13. Jer Ryan

    I’ve been trialling “The Foundation” for a couple of months now and at first I found the correction to my posture a little akward, however , very quickly I felt the benefits. I have found that the postural change seems also to improve focus and attention to the task in hand on my screen as well as preventing me from sitting in bad posture for long periods. This is one of those products you don’t want to be without once you have one. Recommend hightly.

  14. Annick Doza

    I use the foundation on my office chair daily. It is of great support for my lower back. My posture improved after the second week for sure. The foundation works well along with my awareness. It serves as an excellent “foundation” to sit straight, breath and take breaks from the desktop. 🙂

  15. Cliff Lebioda

    I use this all the time in work. I have suffered from a sciatica problem. This has been a great help for me. Great product..

  16. clifford Lebioda

    I have one for work. I’ve suffered from a sciatica problems, it really helps. . Gives me great support. Its very portable, great product…

  17. Ted H

    Foundation is at my desk and now part of the furniture. Makes a long day at desk more enjoyable.

  18. Tony

    The ‘foundation’ is great. I use it in the car most of the time and also transfer it to my office chair. The new sitting position feels much stronger and powerful. My back too feels stronger. I highly recommend the foundation whether you are looking to ease your back pain or prevent it through correct posture. Must get another one.

  19. Nicole

    I really like my new foundation. I use it on my office chair, I am tall, so I need to lower the seat to have my height aligned to the computer screen.
    I would recommend it, it helps my posture.

  20. John H

    I love my new foundation. I think I would have stayed a sceptic if I hadn’t experienced the shift in the spinery offices for myself. Straight away my posture was so much better and everything just felt stronger and more engaged. Now I have one in work, one at home and my daughter takes hers to school with her. I’ll continue to recommend the spinery to friends and family and anyone else who will listen! Great people too.

    I received the foundation three weeks ago. I use it in my office all the time and feel it makes a big difference to my work station posture. I also like the fact that it comfortable, neat and easy to carry with me to meetings within the company. The color also makes it discreet and blends in very well.

  22. Patrick

    I have been a long time sufferer with lower back pain and sciatica (I have a pro-lapsed / herniated disc at L5 S1) and my posture and lots of time working at a desk seems to be one of the causes of the problem. This cushion brings put you in a posture naturally and is much more comfortable than it looks! I use it predominantly while driving because, particularly long drives, caused me significant grief previously, but this has now been much improved! Very lightweight and easy to move around so it can be used anywhere with ease. One caution I would give is that, if you intend to use in your car, make sure and check your car seat clearance before purchasing, or try one out if you can (particularly if you’re about 5 foot 9 or above or if your car has a low ceiling). I have my car seat adjusted down to the floor and with the cushion in place I just about have enough clearance for my head while driving (so just make sure you have enough clearance). But otherwise, highly recommended!

  23. Niamh Gleeson

    Absolutely loving my foundation. I find it particularly useful for long car journeys. Gone are the days of dreading the drive for family day trips or journeys down the country. Its been a life saver for me or to be more exact a back saver!!

    • The Spinery

      Thanks Niamh for you kind words!

  24. Mark Magennis

    My job involves sitting in front of a screen for long hours which has caused me to have shoulder, back, hip and knee pain, which only seemed to get worse over time. I have tried various chairs, a ball and standing desk with some success but this simple device has given me the most relief. The moment I tried it, the new body position just felt right and this awareness means that if I fall back into a poor position then I feel uncomfortable and correct it. My aches and pains are gradually disappearing and this device has been a key part of the solution.

  25. Richie Smyth

    I have two sizes, one for regular chairs when I’m working at my desk and the other for my car. The first time I used it I instantly felt my core engage. It has made such a difference to the quality of time i spend sitting. And sorted out all my issues with my lower back. It’s such a simple idea, in one word – genius.
