Rated 1 out of 5 by Xtina So disappointed
I read all the reviews before purchasing this product and was so excited about it. I have used it for over a week and it has caused me to have even worse back pain than I experience on a daily basis. I know it isn't the way I am using it because I have followed people's recommendations. It has caused my lower back pain to intensify. I am so disappointed. In addition with the shipping/customs fees for delivery to Canada it ended up costing me $80. There goes my hard-earned money on a product I can't use. Now I'm worried about the other products I have purchased for Christmas gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoaninNC Lower Back Pain GONE
I have two, major (major) lower disc issues -- so sitting in ANY office chair (no matter how ergodynamic it's supposed to be) for any length of time causes SEVERE lower back pain which then radiates down the back of both legs. I've tried EVERY kind of chair and back support known to mankind -- but this seat cushion WORKS!!! The key? You MUST use it as shown (with the split facing the back of the chair) and you MUST place it at the VERY FRONT of your chair and allow it to "tip you forward" a bit. You'll adjust to this angle within a short time (doing so shifts your weight onto your thighs). Literally ALL pressure on your spine is GONE and GONE. When used as I've described, the difference is felt IMMEDIATELY and it LASTS ALL DAY LONG. I've spend hundreds and HUNDREDS of dollars over a period of TWO YEARS on all KINDS of support devices and what-nots with absolutely no relief -- and was JUST ABOUT to purchase a pricey saddle-style chair when I found this chair pad and thought, "Let me try just ONE MORE pad to see if this works". I truly cannot believe this under $50 item has COMPLETELY CHANGED my ability to work comfortably at my desk job. I'm not a whack-a-do, I'm a 55 year old professional and I do not typically swoon over a product; but it is NOT an exaggeration to say this chair pad (used as described) has literally CHANGED MY LIFE. Have lower back issues? Buy this product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tactical111 It works!
First seat cushion I've found wih the spine/coccyx cutout that actually suspends the tailbone above the surface of the chair. And it didn't smell bad so don't know what some of the commenters are talking about. Lower back pain was gone this am after using it at work all day yesterday in my "sit down" job. I'll be ordering one for my home office! Thank you Gaiam!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaS Can't believe the relieve
My husband has had back problems for years. He recently had both knees replaced and his back got worse from laying in bed and then doing all the leg exercises for rehab. He went back to work and just riding the 30 miles to and from work was horrible on his back. I bought this seat cushion for him and the 2nd day he had it he had to do 2 120 mile round trips and his back didn't bother him at all. He used it all week and no back problems. On Saturday he rode 30 miles into town with me in my car and before we got to town, his back was hurting. I am ordering a second pillow for the car so that he always has one to sit on. This pillow is amazing and I recommend it to all who have back problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lyricsoprano Finally, a winner!
I've been using this cushion for 3 months now, and I think I've finally found a winner. I've tried other posture-correcting cushions at my desk and computer, but I haven't had the the success that I've had with this one. It sits high, which keeps my shoulders down and relaxed (also great because I have long legs). It's soft enough to keep my sit bones from getting uncomfortable. And, most importantly, it keeps my spine and neck in good alignment. It may take a little while for each individual to find the right balance and position, but once found, it's great. This is the most comfortable that I've ever felt sitting at my desk for long periods.
