Check it Out! Sitting in front of the computer for hours can really put a strain on the back and unsupported sitting can damage your back. Did you know that according to the Workers Safety and Insurance Board, simply sitting - without proper support - is the leading cause for back pain, second only to heavy weight lifting?
As soon as a body sits still for twenty minutes the deep muscles in the back begin to tense up, which leads to stiffness and pain. Using standard pillows may work for a little while, but they always collapse and have to be fluffed and moved around. Once the pillow collapses, your lower back starts to slouch and your no better off! That is why dynamic support is important, because it responds to what the body does naturally.
I recently got the opportunity via Tomoson to check out a cool pillow that offers that dynamic support, called the Qi Orthopedic Pillow.
The Qi Pillow has been proven in a third party clinical study to help 91% of back pain sufferers relieve back stiffness, pain and fatigue, while improving their posture and comfort. This isn't an ordinary pillow! This pillow has an air controlled orthopedic core that provides individualized support just for you!
So I received my Qi Pillow the other day and I love the Micro-Suede cover that is removable and hand -washable! I have used it in my office chair and in bed while working there on the computer.
As you can see beneath that cover is a liner and then the air chamber is in the center. There is a very unique air valve that makes adding and removing air super easy. It instructs you to start with 2 puffs and you would think, well that's nothing, but it is. What I really liked was that it does not collapse, no matter how long you use it. It actually kinda forced me to sit properly which in turn allowed me to sit longer and more comfortably. I asked each of my kids to try it and they also agreed that it helped them to sit better so I think this would be awesome for someone who studies or spends time at their desk. A great gift idea for the holidays! The Qi Orthopedic Pillow is available in Camel or Sage.
With the Qi Pillow the support always adjusts to your body! Take it in the car, to work or even just watching TV. Your back will thank you!
