This lightweight cushion turns chairs and car and airline seats into healing devices for your back.


The Stretchsit cushion helps transform most chairs into comfortable chairs that provide gentle traction. Unlike a lumbar support cushion, this cushion elongates rather than compresses your low back, giving you the natural, healthy spinal shape shared by children, athletes, and people in non-industrial societies the world over. No more compression, no more pain -- sit your way to a pain-free back! The stretchsit cushion is comfortable and easy to install and use.
