After months in lockdown some may be finding their working from home set-up is starting to wreak havoc on their body.
While some may have turned the spare bedroom into their own study and invested in an office chair, or posture corrector, to ease the discomfort, others are struggling to settle into a comfortable spot.
Some may find themselves settling into bed, or laying on a yoga mat on the floor, just to get some feeling back into the lower body and shake off those pins and needles.
Despite experimenting with seating positions, some of us are still left with sore backs, tight shoulders and numb bottoms from sitting down for so long.
But there is one item on our radar, which is said to be a must-have to support your back during your 9 to 5 job - introducing the Feagar Lumbar Support Pillow/Back Cushion.
Why we rate it
If you spend a lot of time driving and sitting, the Feagar Lumbar Support Pillow/Back Cushion will help reduce pains in your body. This memory foam Orthopedic seat cushion is perfect for upper, middle and lower back pains and lumbar pain relief.
This ergonomic backrest pad comes with a contoured structure that can be placed anywhere along the back of a chair and fit any height person; you could also just slightly adjust the position of it. It aligns your back while gently protecting and strengthening your muscles by correcting your posture.
It also has a removable cushion cover, which is breathable and washable.
What we love is the Feagar Lumbar Support Pillow/Back Cushion is affordable, as it retails for S$89.95 at Amazon Singapore.
What the reviews say
The Feagar Lumbar Support Pillow/Back Cushion has received more than 2,000 glowing reviews from customers, with some hailing it “great value for money”, and “great support”.
Here’s what the reviews say:
“This backrest has completely helped me with working from home. Recommend trying it.”
“My wife and I suffer from back issues. This has been a tremendous help while sitting in front of our computers. It had two straps to attach to any size chair and also included 2 more extension straps for huge chairs. I've tried our Dining room chairs and computer chair and they fit without problems.”
“I have an hour commute each way to work - and I noticed I was getting back pain after about a half hour or less of driving. Not just lower back pain either, but cramps and knots would develop in my upper back for some reason. I have another lumbar pillow for home and work, and I was close to simply purchasing the same one for my car too. But what caught my interest about this one was the design and the amount of support you get for your lower back. It's cushioned and comfortable, while providing great support and reducing pain in my back from long drives.”
