The simple action of sitting is likely to cause neck and lower back pain to many people due to the enormous pressure placed on the spine. The Wedges are ideal for car seats because they angle the body to a comfortable, easy driving position. Placed on an office chair, they adapt the angle of the sitting position, tilting the pelvis forward, and encouraging good posture.

8° Degree Wedge
Bought this to improve the driving position in my car - very impressed with it so far. It has an elastic strap to secure it to the seat, so it remains in the correct position. It is firm enough to be supportive but still comfortable and has improved my back pain. A high quality British product.

8° Degree Wedge
It is very comfortable, wish I'd got one years ago. However, very, very disappointed with the fabric cover as it seems to be like a magnet to any fluff or bits around. Collected fluff after unpacking and left on a spptless shelf!! Any way of addressing this? Thanks, M.L.

8° Degree Wedge
The 8 degree wedge has brought some comfort back to sitting in my car by reducing pressure on my hamstrings and helping pain in the piriformis muscle. It was delivered within 3 days of ordering, impressive also! I've just ordered the Putnam pillow, hoping it will help neck/shoulder/upper back aches.

8° Degree Wedge
Has made my back posture so much better which has really helped with my back issues. Was nervous to buy one as someone mentioned the cover was a fluff magnet but I haven't found this to be the case. Thanks Putnams"

8° Degree Wedge
Great for propping my elderly mother up in the car, makes getting in and out a whole lot easier for her as she really values her independence. She says its also very comfortable to sit on for long periods of time, wish she would stop hogging it so that I could try it!

8° Degree Wedge
Very good quality compared to others I looked at, well made and comfortable. It was bought as a gift so I am unable to comment on its true effectiveness (hence only 4 stars) but I know the first use was met with elation, and apparently made a big difference

8° Degree Wedge
Following a diognosis of gluteal tendonopathy i thought I would invest in a wedge pillow for the car. This pillow ensures that my hips are always higher than my knees, it also stops the sensitised dside of my hip rubbing against the "bucket style" side of the seats. A good investment and worth the money. My long car journeys will hopefully be now ...Read More

I bought 2 x 8" wedges on advice from my physio who has been treating me for back pain. She uses one in her car. I have never looked back: I use 1 wedge at home anywhere I sit, and 1 in my car. Although I still have some pain caused by severe scoliosis, have had inhections at the hospital, and a course of private Bowens physio, my pain is more bea...Read More
