Sissel Car Seat back Support

Posture Curve vs Sissel

Posture Curve vs Sissel
 

One of the most disappointing things to happen in the back-care market in recent years has been the disappearance of the famous Posturecurve portable back support. The brand had been popular for at least 25 years until the company was sold several years ago. Since then the Posturecurve brand name and product have disappeared.

The Posturecurve Traditional had standard density foam and the Posturecurve Comfy was a softer option. During the 20 years we retailed both types, the Posturecurve Comfy ended up outselling the Traditional version by about three to one.

There have been some alternative versions of the Posturecurve, but none of them have been half as good. Until now.

The Sissel Car Seat Back Support is the nearest equivalent to the Posturecurve back supports as you are ever likely to find. It would be fair to say the foam density 'feel' of the Sissel support falls neatly between the Posturecurve Traditional (firm) and Comfy (soft) options. This means users of either Posturecurve product should find the Sissel version a very satisfactory alternative.

The U-Slope
 

A reading/writing slope and document holder designed with U in mind  

  

 The U Slope

The U Slope in use

 

The unique design of the U Slope allows the document holder to transform into an A3 reading and writing slope by simply gliding the U Slope forward over the keyboard. As the design offers full clearance above the keyboard no sacrifice on the angle of document surface is required. Once the keyboard is required the U Slope simply glides back into its document holder position, thus maximising your desk space.

Occupational therapists advise a higher working surface whilst reading or writing than during date entry/typing. The U Slope automatically raises the working height for you, eliminating the need for an alternative raised work surface. Although it is recommended that the monitor is positioned at an ergonomic height to suit you, the U Slope's unique design caters for both monitors positioned directly on the desk and monitors positioned on stands, blocks or on a monitor arm. The choice is yours, the range of adjustments will suit your needs.

Car Comfort Combo
Car Comfort Combo
 
Does your old car seat need an upgrade?

Have you bought a new car and the seats are driving you nuts?

Is there a passenger who always complains about your car seats?

Turn the bad back "Car Seat From Hell" into something far more heavenly with our new Car Seat Combo.

 

Car Comfort Combo

Whenever customers nip into our store and "borrow" some products to try out in their car, they frequently come up with the same back care solution - an adjustable lower back support, combined with a seat wedge.

Car Comfort Combo 

If sitting hunched up in the car causes you discomfort, a simple backrest and seat wedge combination will help you sit more correctly.

 
Why? Because the back sections of many car seats either have no additional lumbar support for the lower back, or it is fixed in the wrong place and you can hardly feel any beneficial effects at all. Then the actual seat sections of many car seats slope down backwards so far, it is actually rather difficult to climb out, let alone sit in comfort! You end up with your backside sunk so low, your knees end up higher than your hips. This position can be very uncomfortable after a while.

Now our website customers can learn in a few sentences what we have picked up from watching customers for the past 21 years.

You cannot go far wrong with a back rest and seat wedge combination - our Car Comfort Combo.

 
Before you buy one, there is only one thing you need to do. Work out your seat cushion's angle of slope.
 

Car Comfort Combo - work out the seat angle

  • You can visually "guesstimate" the angle your seat slopes down from an imaginary horizontal line
  • Or you can cut-out a segment of stiff card and trim it until the seat angle becomes clear
  • Or if you have a ruler and protractor you can accurately measure the angle of slope
 
Our seat wedges are made with either 8 degree or 11 degree angles, both can be ordered with or without a coccyx comfort recess. You should allow for the effect of your weight slightly squashing a seat wedge cushion, so if in doubt, choose the 11 degree version.
 

Your backrest is designed to fit snugly into the curve of your spine. It is filled with high grade visco elastic memory foam, which has a gel-like feel, pressure relieving properties and moulds exactly to your body shape. The foam comes in two parts, an anatomically shaped front piece, backed by a thin section, which can be removed, giving a choice of 2 different backrest depths.

"The car combo' is very effective, increasing comfort on long car journeys in my Citroen C3. I have an arthritic spine and two tin hips. Most cars hold you in the wrong position eg. seat lower than knees, and the combo' seat cushion corrects this. The back cushion is very supportive and stops you slumping. Altogether a good buy which I recommend to people who suffer pain from driving". JMB (Holmfirth) May 2011

 

Set the height of your backrest by tightening or loosening the strap which hangs around the headrest pillars on a click-buckle strap.

Choose either an 11 degree or an 8 degree seat wedge. Either can come with or without a coccyx comfort recess.
