Sitting Partner is an effective relief for back pain, which avoids the pitfalls of most lumbar supports, making it more comfortable and more suitable for lengthy use. It can be a great part of an healthy “movement based” life style.
Designed by a Norwegian Doctor to help his patients, Sitting Partner has become a world-wide success, frequently recommended as part of treatment. Its design-protected shape not only supports the spine, taking the strain off painful ligaments, muscles and discs, but it constantly moves, thus promoting better circulation and lymph drainage.
The movement in Sitting Partner means that it complies with the latest thinking on movement and back pain. It is now recognized that static spinal joints become unhealthy spinal joints with time, and movement and activity is important to recover from back pain ... even if it seems painful to move.
Every Partner is ready to use straight from the bag. If it has been compressed in the post, feel free to pummel it a little, or simply let it expand by itself in a warm cupboard.
The Sitting partner can be set to four different positions, so will fit everyone. A special, inflatable air pocket allows increased support if your back is acute, or if you will be sitting still such as in a plane or car.
Back pain can be caused by sitting in poor posture, which can be improved by pushing into the back at waist level. This creates a forward curve of the spine called 'Lumbar Curve'. However ... most supports press too hard on the lumbar spine, causing new discomfort, and people often stop using them. Sitting Partner is different: Its unique design spreads pressure to below your waist, giving good support to your Sacrum. Sitting Partner is effective and comfortable.
