So as a blogger and columnist who also manages a law practice part time, I am sitting on my bum for most of the work day...usually writing and toiling away on my computer.
My chair is decent but I guess I could always use extra back support. The makers of an orthopedic portable seat called Backjoy sent over one of their seats (or orthotic cushion) for me to try out.
Initially, I wasn't sure how it worked and it seemed a bit too small for my ample bottom, to put it politely. However, once I figured out I had to flip it over and then used the seat for a week, it grew on me and I started to get used to the extra support it provided.
I suppose it would work well for other working moms, a mom-to-be dealing with lower back pain related to carrying around extra weight in her uterus or for anyone who is dealing with back issues.
Backjoy comes in 6 colors and retails for $39.99 and can be found at retailers online and in brick and mortar stores nationwide.
I'm still wary as to whether the seats will work for larger people as my 6 foot 3 inches husband couldn't adjust and considered it too small.
But notwithstanding those concerns, I'd say it is totally worth giving it a try and as I type this I am realizing I need to find my complimentary review version [FTC] as I've gotten used to the way the seat forces me to sit up straighter. Nice
