Find the perfect

Back Thing for you.

Back support designed to reduce pain

If you suffer from chronic back pain, you’re not alone. In fact, 80 percent of the population deals with some sort of lower back pain on a regular basis.*

This overwhelming problem is what prompted the creation of The Back Thing, a functional chair cushion designed by a neurosurgeon to provide the right kind of lumbar support. Instead of horizontal cushioning that causes the lower back to over-arch, The Back Thing uses vertical pine slats to promote better posture and provide lumbar support to alleviate back pain.

The Back Thing’s slim design makes it foldable and easy to carry for travel and work!
