Picking the right Ergonomic Seat Cushion
Information of the different types of ergonomic seat cushions and chair cushions. They act like a posture aid and help, and helps you maintain a good back posture.
If you work in an office, you will probably spend at least eight hours. Did you know when you sit, there is about tremendous pressure on your back, equivalent to at least double your weight? You'll probably need some level of comfort and support.
For these reason, back and seat ergonomic cushions were made.
There is a variety of ergonomic seat cushions available in the market. They differ by material such as foam, memory foam and gel. They also differ in types.
Some ergonomic seat cushions come with a matching backrest. Of course, if you already have got lumbar support on your chair, you won't need an additional ergonomic back cushion.
