Inflatable Lumbar Support

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain caused due to acute stress on the lumbar region of the spine is the most common form of back pain. The use of computers and video display terminals in organizations has been the causative agent for complaints like muscular aches, pain in the neck, cumulative trauma disorders. Inflatable lumbar support is an excellent ergonomic solution for such problems arising due to postures and work stress.

Inflatable Lumbar Support for Lower Back Pain

A sitting position that allows the natural curves of the spine to be supported firmly is helpful in easing back pain. Inflatable lumbar support is designed to increase the level of comfort and support in sitting position. These inflatable lumbar supports provide relief from upper or lower back by supporting and providing our spine with an anatomically perfect or near perfect posture. Portable inflatable lumbar support cushions are a recent innovation that inflate and deflate by an in-built valve and air pump mechanism to support areas in upper or lower back.

  • The lumbar support cushion can be positioned as per the needs either in the upper or lower regions of the back. The cushion is provided with elastic straps that can easily secure the cushion to any chair.
