Whether you're still working from home or have returned to the office, your back may be feeling the pain from your less-than-ergonomic seating positions. Luckily, relief is available...for a steal. This simple orthopedic solution can help reduce discomfort practically anywhere — even in the car!
Right now, QVC is offering the SitSmart Core Traction Portable Posture Seat by Backjoy for just $40 (down from $48). Don’t want to pay all in one go? Opt for three Easy Pay installments of just $13 instead. Plus, if you’re a first-time QVC shopper, you can grab an extra $15 off your purchase with code OFFER.
The portable, padded perch encourages proper posture (say that 10 times fast) by elevating your tush off of the seat to prevent back and shoulder fatigue (A.K.A. slouching). The simple repositioning helps tilt the pelvis and get the spine into a neutral, natural alignment. Plus, this elevation allows for blood circulation through your bottom and the backs of your legs.
This new model has a few upgrades to benefit an even wider range of users, including a bigger, padded seat with ventilation and a handle. Plus, there are slip-resistant mats on the bottom to make users feel extra secure in their seat. The handle makes it easy to tote with you from car to office chair (or even onto a plane, train or bus to make long-distance travel a bit easier on the back and body). Plus, one size fits most! Watch this video to see it in action.
Take it from these happy customers:
"I suffer from severe back pain. I also have to sit for several hours at work. I was hoping for a little relief from pain while using this. To my surprise I received more than a little relief. I felt the difference right from the beginning. Going to order one for the car."
"I travel quite a bit. So I have a tendency to slouch quite a lot when I drive because I like to be comfortable during those long hours. Eight to twelve hours a day in a driver's seat really gives me poor posture, especially at 62. I primarily use this in my SUV...It definitely helps me to sit up straight effortlessly and provides a comforting support in the process...Positioning of your buttocks in this seat IS KEY to have its desired effect. Really isn't that hard to do it. You immediately notice a difference and it's effortless. I highly recommend this...Durable, comfortable, supportive, soft...Get this before poor posture sets in and you can't do anything about it..."
Do yourself a favor and make this simple change to your seating setup and feel instant relief in your back and body.
