V27801 - Backjoy Portable Supportive Back Orthotic
Did nothing for my back
This did nothing to help me sit straighter or relieve back pain. If it had been good I was going to tell my brother about it, but no such luck.
A Solution for Office
At work I found I was sitting on the edge of my chair and by the end of the day, I would be stiff. My Boss commented on how I was bent over my keyboard. My trainer lined up my chair with my desk and computer /keyboard- that didn't help. I purchased a Backjoy for my daughter last year, she has back problems and won't go without it at work.
I decided to try it out - as soon as I sat on it - I never was on the edge of my seat again. Not only that, but I don't bend over anymore - it helps me to sit up straight. Don't wait - do yourself a favor and try this out - it's inexpensive and really works.
THIS IS GREAT
I broke three vertebrae in a motorcycle accident a few years back. Needless to say that after that I suffer from constant back pain, specially when sitting for a prolonged period of time. I have tried several orthopaedic cushions and gizmos that never quite helped. So it was necessary to take pain killer pills on a routine basis. I did not want to do this. I finally found one of these a while back in another store and it did work!! it actually alings yous spine while sitting. I could not find anymore until recently my daughter told me about QVC selling them. I had to buy another one ASAP. I have them now at home in my office chair, and in my car. I used to get really tired while commuting to work, and would get really cranky and tense. I really enjoy driving, and now thanks to this I have been able to re-discover the pleasures of driving. This is a great product. It takes a little time to get used to it, after all we back sufferers have gotten used to contort our bodies to weird sitting positions, this will re-align you again.
So glad I purchased this!
I just received the Backjoy last week and so far at my home computer desk, what a difference, amazing!!! I love it! I cannot wait til my weekly trips for work to NY that's why I purchased this because the almost 2hour commute was just soo bad on my lower back pain. I highly recommend you don't hesitate to buy , like I did for soo long I regret not getting it sooner!! I will be back for another one to keep in the car and I can think of soo many friends and family I will be getting this for asap... easy pay is awesome : )
MY BACK WAS KILLING ME!!!
I SIT AT A DESK ALL DAY....AND AT THE END OF THE DAY I COULD HARDLY
WALK TO MY CAR MY BACK HURT SO BADLY.......AFTER ONE DAY
OF SITTING ON BACK JOY......BOY OH BOY!!! WHAT A DIFFERENCE...
I CAN HONESTLY TELL YOU MY BACK HASN'T HURT SINCE...TRY IT..
YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE....BUT YOUR BACK PAIN.
Really Made A Difference!!!!!!!
Within the past six years I have experienced sciatic pain in my back and legs. Recently, I have been diagnosed with bone spurs and narrowing of my spinal column. This works for me. It is easier for me to sit in all of my chairs instead of just a few. I thank you for such a good product. I am ordering one for work.
My back loved it but…
That's just it, it just wasn't comfortable. We tried it with different chairs. We understand that it needs to be somewhat stiff to be supportive, but a little more padding for the derrière would have been greatly appreciated. The support itself, was nice, just not enough padding. I still recommend it, because some may not need padding, while sitting for long periods of time.
May not work for every back problem
Both my husband and I have back problems. I wasn't sure about this product, but I bought it anyway. A few days ago, my back was aching, and I used it at my desk so I could work. No problem all day and no pain. It did not work the same for my husband.
So, I suggest a trial run, it may or may not work for you...and you can return it if it doesn't. I'm definitely keeping mine.
Quality of Life Saver
I first purchased this about 4 years ago, I quickly ordered a second one. I have "arachnoiditis and Sciatica" sitting had become a very painful process. i AM A FREQUENT BRIDGE PLAYER AND TAKE MY BACKJOY EVERYWHERE. I have recommended this product to many who have also purchased Backjoy. Great in all chairs, airplane seats and more.
I don't see how this got even a 73% rating. It's too flimsy and it's going back.
Better than physical therapy
I purchased this orthotic out of desperation, after being diagnosed with sciatica. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be able to sit without pain. I will buy one to keep at work, and one for the car. Works great on long trips.
It really works!!!...
I bought these last year or so and it reallly helps my back alot... If you have back problems give it a try... I did and it works for me...
