Features You Need To Look For
Okay, with regards to features, there is so much to look for. This is because lumbar cushions come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, most of which are applicable on any seat – from your office chair to use it when traveling airborne. However, despite the many options to choose from, you just need to pick a lumbar cushion that fits the following criterion:
Now, when buying a lumbar support, you’ll need to consider the following aspects, which will help you make an easier decision given the many options to pick from.
What’s the SHAPE of the cushion?
For starters, you need to look at the shape of the lumbar support. You need to pick something that’s gonna fit perfectly with your spine’s natural curvature. This helps strengthen and protect your muscles.
If you are buying online and you probably aren’t sure if the lumbar support can fit your curvature, then you’ll need to check out its dimensions and measurements and compare them to your back.
Which MATERIAL is recommendable?
Since lumbar supports and cushions are meant to give you that healthy posture, it’s advisable to choose a material that’s easy to clean and that’s gonna last for the longest period possible. That is, the material ought to be both durable and comfortable, thus the need to pick high-quality materials.
Also, if you are considering choosing a memory foam cushion, then make sure that the material is one that’s gonna maintain its shape for many years. At the same time, pick a material that’s breathable, which will be handy during hot weather.
Is it suitable for your CAR?
Each and every lumbar support has been designed in its own way. Some aren’t meant to be fitted in cars. So keep note of this. For those suitable for cars, they’ll probably have straps to be fitted in car seats.
Also, some lumbar supports have been designed for specific types of cars; therefore, it’s important if you take your time before making any purchase.
How PORTABLE is lumbar support?
If a lumbar support isn’t portable and seems bulky moving around with it, then that’s something you need to pass up and instead find an alternative. However, stumbling upon a lumbar that isn’t portable is a very rare thing, because most (if not all) lumbar supports are portable.
Our Preferred Choices
LoveHome Memory Foam Lumbar Support Back Cushion
From all the lumbar cushions we tested, the LoveHome came top when it comes to comfort and support over a long period. While other options were either comfortable with not-so-great support, the LoveHome Memory foam doesn’t trade off one for the other.
Also, this back cushion is not only easy to adjust but also secure and easily washable. Most of our testers admitted to feeling comfortable and that the LoveHome cushion contoured perfectly with their bodies.
This memory foam gives a considerable amount of support for all kinds of body shapes. The cushion covers a sizeable portion of your lower back and keeps it in a secure position when strapped to a car seat.
The LoveHome back cushion has a smooth cover that’s easily removable for washing and its strap is really amazing since it helps the cushion retain its position. Its material is made of fine mesh that’s easy to clean. Its only notable downside is its 60-day guarantee since other options have extended warranties.
- Contours perfectly with the body
- Both comfortable and supportive at the same time
- Material is made fine mess that is easily washable
- Simple-to-remove cover
- Its strap is very easy to adjust and use in most cars
- Short refundable guarantee, just 60 days
Everlasting Comfort 100% Pure Memory Foam Back Cushion
Now, if you are looking for a lumbar that’s got more grip and firmer, then the Everlasting Back Cushion is the best option. It’s a bit more firm when compared to other top picks we’ve selected for you. Most reviewers love it because of its easiness to clean and its capability to last for many years.
The lumbar is also easy to set up and very portable, which means you don’t have to worry about moving around with it since the lumbar weighs a bit lighter than the LoveHome back cushion. Better yet, it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg compared to some options that we are yet to mention. Its price changes time and time again, but the last time I checked it cost about $29.95
What our testers loved about the Everlasting Comfort 100% is its durability. I mean, it’s called “everlasting” for chrissake! And it really lives up to its name.
If you think you’ve read it all, and maybe you are about to give it a try, well, you need to know that the Everlasting Seat Cushion is an Orthopedic-recommended product. Which means you should definitely try it. It is also a must-try for those who have had injury.
But then again, however, and as expected, the Everlasting comes with some downside. The fact that it is a stiffer and a firmer back cushion, not every user will find this comfortable for their use. You might say that the Everlasting Comfort 100% is more about effectiveness and less about comfort.
The other shortcoming is its lifetime replacement guarantee option. Even though it’s great that they offer “anytime” replacement option, you’ll have to cater for your own return shipping. But other than that, this is a great product that’s very effective.
- Recommended by orthopedic, thus great for injured users
- Very durable
- Stiff and firm thus very effective
- Lots of straps hence easy to plug-in
- Very affordable
- Firmness might not be comfortable for some people
- Indefinable and not-so-clear policy on lifetime replacement guarantee option
Tempur-Pedic Lumbar Cushion
Okay, this is a unique option and all our testers found that this is true. I mean, the Tempur-Pedic isn’t just like other back cushions. It has an ergonomic contoured shape that offers therapeutic support. I personally love its removable cover that can be stretched for maximum responsiveness.
Better yet, this lumbar cushion is made of a material that’s really great with temperature changes. That is, the product feels cool when needed to, and keeps warm when you want to. It’s no wonder the cushion costs about three times more than most lumbar back cushions out there.
Its size is perfect for most people since it offers 2 to 3 inches more in height. And it features 3 years warranty.
On the downside, the cushion doesn’t have a strap. But I think was intentional by the manufacturer to target users who aren’t into straps and just prefer something that they put it on their back and let it conform to their backs. And that’s exactly what the Tempur-Pedic does.
- Ergonomic contoured shape
- Offers therapeutic support
- Stretchable cover
- Temperature-sensitive material
- Really pricey
- Lacks straps
Now, if you are looking for something that you can literally carry anywhere with you, then the Duro-Med is the perfect option. It is a simple and affordable back support cushion. Its effectiveness cannot be rivaled.
It comes with very convenient straps that let you attach this back pillow to your car seat, office chair, and a rocking chair. You can even use it on long flights or on train rides.
The best thing with the Duro-Med lumbar back pillow is the fact that you can as well as use it without the straps. It still fits perfectly with your chair or car seat. Therefore, if you want a combination of both the Everlasting Comfort 100% and the Tempur-Pedic, the Duro is exactly what you need.
The cushion is made of molded foam that’s not only resilient but also one that conforms to your back. The foam ensures your spine is properly aligned. And that’s why the Duro-Med is a recommendation by chiropractors for those experiencing lower back pain.
Finally, its cushion is removable and easy to wash and clean.
- Really affordable
- Usable with or without the strap
- Easy to carry around
- Recommended by health professional for back pain
- Doesn’t last long
- Some reviewers complain of the support keeps sliding down over time
Original McKenzie Lumbar Roll
Well, this lumbar derives its name from its shape. It has a cylindrical shape hence the name “roll” to it. The McKenzie lumbar support cushion is very unique and it’s meant for those who want something dedicated just for the lower part of their backs.
What’s noticeable about this lumbar is its long single strap that’s adjustable, which makes it easy to fit on any chair or seat you can think of. Its small size makes it easy to carry around and use it in any manner you’d like to.
Again, as expected, health professionals recommend its use, thus making it great for anyone who has experienced some form of back injury.
The roll cushion is 11 inches in length and its diameter is about 4.75 inches, which makes it sizeable enough to carry on your backpack. What most reviewers love the most about this lumbar is its moisture-wicking fabric, which keeps you cool and dry.
The Original McKenzie roll conforms well to your back’s shape. For washing, you can simply remove its cover.
Most of our testers compared their effectiveness and comfort to the Duro-Med. And most of them loved its easiness to conform. However, its main deal-breaker is the log-like shape, which isn’t for everyone.
- Unique log-like shape just for the lower part of your back
- Easy to carry around
- Has a long and adjustable strap that fits on any seat or chair
- Machine washable
- Its unique shape isn’t for everyone
- Some suggest that it’s not meant for people with spinal stenosis or spondylolisthesis
Fellowes Professional Series Back Support
This is a perfect lumbar support for your office chair. It has a unique shape whereby it’s got three foam sections that offer balance on your back.
Reviewers love the fact that it doesn’t just focus on the lower part of your back but also provides comfortable support on the upper part of your back. This is a great cushion for mid-spinal support, hence promoting a good sitting posture in general.
It comes with straps to plug on your chair or seat. The fitting isn’t as straightforward as other lumbar options – you might need some tutorial. But that shouldn’t be a deal-breaker because you’ll get your way around it, and once you do, the sitting experience is incomparable.
I personally love the triangular shape, which lets you position the lumbar to an exact position you like, thus eliminating the need to keep on readjusting the lumbar every time you make some movement. All you need is to find the perfect position for your back, clip the straps and it will stay put.
Its material is made of Microban antimicrobial that helps keep the Fellowes cushion free from bacteria.
- Great for office chair
- No need to keep readjusting whenever you make some movement
- Offers support for your entire back
- Anti-bacterial material
- Not so easy to fit on a chair
- Only great with office chairs
** Common FAQs**
Do I need to get some kind of prescription to buy lumbar support?
Definitely NO! Anyone can surely get lumbar support cushion for his or her own use. Some lumbar brands tend to associate themselves with health professional approvals. But that doesn’t mean you only have to buy them after a doc’s prescription.
However, and in retrospect, if you buy a lumbar coz you felt some back pains, and then, later on, feel the pain persisting, it’s advisable to seek that professional assistance from your doctor.
Can it cure back pains and injuries?
Lumbar supports and cushions are meant to help you manage back pain and increase sitting comfort. And that’s why it is recommendable to see a doctor if you feel serious back pains. But if the back pain is a mild one, a lumbar support cushion can come in handy.
How different is a lumbar from a back brace?
They are different in their own way. That is, a lumbar support is meant for the “lumbar” part of your back, which is specifically the lower part of the back. On the other hand, the back brace is meant to improve your general posture.
The back brace is normally worn on your body while the lumbar support isn’t worn but placed on your chair or seat.
