LumbAir

"A lumbar support that promotes ideal low back position and postural changes via its adjustable air bladder. It is easy to carry for use in cars, airplanes, theaters, or for home use." Stuart M. McGill, Ph.D

Prop-Air Sleeper

"Recently, this same air bladder technology used in the LumbAir has been shown to reduce disc stress while sleeping. This resulted in the "PropAir sleeper."

Lying on the back causes the low back to flatten if the mattress isn't supportive enough causing low back flexion stress. Many people have flexion-triggered pain making back sleeping painful and thus mornings can be difficult. Eliminating pain while lying down and sleeping will help wind down your pain sensitivity throughout the day." Stuart M. McGill, Ph.D

Many chairs and especially car seats place your hips below your knees. This makes it difficult to maintain the natural curve of the low back thus placing more stress through the low back. 

This cushion helps bring your hips up a bit which helps reduce stress through the low back.

Here's another option for an adjustable standing work desk. Yes, its that important. Did you know that that in various wellness studies they found that those that used their standing work station lost weight without changing anything else in their lifestyle? At the end of the year they lost a comparable amount of calories as they would've if they participated in 2-3 marathons. You don't have to stand all day, but wouldn't it be nice to be productive while standing when you get sick of sitting?

Based on our current research this is the gold standard office desk chair. Yes, it is pricey but here's why: it offers many adjustable options to the seat panel (what you sit on) independent of the back rest adjustments. You can also recline back with the seat panel and back rest together as one piece. You can lock any of the above positions in place. The armrests are also adjustable. 

The reason why having as many of these features as possible is beneficial is because it allows for postural variations. In other words various areas of the body can share the stress of sitting throughout the day vs just your neck, lower back, and shoulders.
