Worth the money

Absolutely love this pillow use it in my car use it on my walker use it in my bed use it on the chair this makes my back feel so much better

Great cushion!

I developed bed sores in a most uncomfortable place and this cushion saved me!…

Pillow has eased my husband's pain.

My husband has a bed sore on his coccyx and this pillow has eased his pain quite a bit.…

Can I use it on my bed to sit on while nursing? Legs would be extended or bent, not hanging like in a chair.

I think it would probably work good, especially on the bed. It has the opening for your tailbone, which is usually a plus after having a baby.

Does this cushion have a cushy feel, yet be supportive. Anything too hard is difficult with many triggers points in my butt from fibromyalgia.

Yes it does and it has just the right level of cushy feel/cushiness. Yes it is also supportive. It's thankfully not firm like how the Tempur-Pedic memory foam bed mattresses are.

Great Cushion

…Bed and chair was not very kind to his butt..This cushion has brought him much relief.…

Enjoy the cushion

I have a sacral fracture and will this help me with the pain?

I do not have a sacral fracture but a severe sarcral pinched nerve and have been in the hospital with foot surgery the past 10 days. The charge nurse urged my family to bring my pillow to use in bed as the whole sacral area was getting very red. It is much better. At home it as fantastic too in my recliner. I am very happy with the orthepeodic (sp?) pillow. It also keeps its shape with tough se. Pat VD

Will this help with leg/knee pain when sitting for long?

Hi, I have pain in the right side of my back and hip. I have trouble sitting longer than 10 minutes without severe pain that sends me to bed. I find this pillow very helpful to mitigate the pain. I bought three: one for each car and one for the house. I use it every day.

wife has a bed soar on her coccyx and it is helping it heal.

anyone use in bed?

Yes. Sometimes I like to sit up in bed and do cryptograms, crossword puzzles, etc., and I used this truly comfy cushion when doing that. It worked perfectly!

Would this work for a person who is bed ridden

My husband sleeps in a recliner, and it works fine in that context. The question caused me to try it when I watch TV in my adjustable bed. Thanks for question because so far it increases my comfort.

Very comfortable!

I bought this cushion for my mom who has stage three bed sores. …She now spends most of her time in a pressure alternating bed, which has been wonderful, provided by hospice, but still uses this cushion on her chair and as a result of all this, the bed sores have been shrinking and closing up!

This pillow is perfect. I recently had neck surgery and had been ...

…Now that I'm ready to sleep in my bed, this pillow has been able to provide me with the same angle as my recliner so my neck doesn't sustain any damage post-surgery.

No more numb bum.

I weight 318 lbs and most cushions like this flatten completely when I sit on them, negating the coccyx relief. How firm is this cushion?

Is this memory foam? What is the density rating?

I have a Tempurpedic mattress and I lay this right on top when I"m in bed. It is more dense around the coccyx area, it's built up in that area. Personally the density is just right for me, sorry if this isn't helpful but I would've paid more for the relief and support I get from this pillow.

Why not a 5?

It works well when used in a chair, not so sitting in bed.

Four Stars

Cushion works like it said bed it doesn't have a handle so you can carry it.

Perfect for sitting or laying in one spot

Got this for my elderly mother so she doesn’t get bed sores, she loves it

Will this work on my bed where i sit to watch tv and knit?

If you have a bed we are you can move it up and down, perhaps ,but this is more for a couch or a chair.

I need to know how thick is this product

The product isn’t extremely thick. It removes pressure from the coccyx and alleviates the butt. Like a soft tempurpetic bed but for your caboose.

Seat Cushion Just as advertised-FIVE STARS*****

…I actually use my cushion while lying on my back in bed and it works.

Extremely Pleased and Worth Every Penny I Spent.

…He takes this pillow everywhere in the house so he can sit and enjoy the holidays with family without being stuck in bed. I am 100% pleased with this pillow and so is he, 20 year old men don't like being confined to bed.…

Save my tailbone

I had bed sores started and I no longer have them...

It's perfect , comfortable I have no complaints!

This cushion has saved me from never wanting me to leave my bed

I'm going to sound like an old person when I write this, but I have never been so excited about an receiving orthopedic cushion as I was when I received this. The computer chair I just bought is a decent chair, and it fit my budget, but its not made to be sitting on for 8-10 hours at a time. My back and sciatic nerve has been killing me. This cushion has really helped me out the last few days, and my back, behind, and nerve is thankful. The one thing I really wish is that the cushion was a little thicker.…

We recently had our first baby. my wife is breast feeding and sits up often. will this help while in bed and/or the couch? thanks.

Bed and sofa to be strong to reflect the advantages of cushion

Can I use it on my bed to sit on while nursing? Legs would be extended or bent, not hanging like in a chair.

Yes. I use it while sitting on my recliner with my legs up and I'm comfortable on it.

Hip pain reduced!

…I found another similar product at Bed Bath & Beyond for less than half the price but will return it as this pad is more comfortable. "You get What You Pay For" is true in this case and worth the extra money for comfort! Just purchased my second one - half the price at Bed bath & Beyond, but 1/2 the comfort also!

Easy on the bumm

Got a bed sore on my tail bone at the hospital this keeps me off of it and it's healing nicely.…

Great for sore tailbone

works great for car, chair, sitting in bed, riding lawnmower, and for fishing on boat.…

is this good for bedsore?

My wife actually used this cushion. Based on what she told me, I believe it would work well for bed sores on a person’s bottom.

Is it soft to sit on

Not as soft as a feather pillow. I believe it is made from memory foam. I would probably say it is about medium density. It gives when you sit on it, retains its shape for a few seconds after you get up, then returns to its original shape. Mom uses it for her tail bone. After getting out of the hospital her tail bone was very tender from laying in bed for 2 weeks. This allowed her to be able to sit on the couch longer without the constant soreness. Even though she feels much better, she still uses it. My mom weighs about 130. I hope this helps with your decision.
