Will this cushion give me a 3 inch boost?

Subject: Question about the product Product Code: Seat Wedge Cushion with Blue Washable Cover Product Code: : CA-227

Q: "Hello, I need at least a three inch boost to see the road. Will this cushion give me the boost or will it collapse? How firm is this cushion? Thanks," Eloise

The maximum thickness of this cushion is 3 inches. It is a fairly firm cushion. However, the compression you'll experience is also related to your weight. Our experience is that if a cushion is too firm, it is also uncomfortable. (We once received a sample of a thick booster cushion that was so firm that when a 200 pound employee stood on the cushion, it made barely a dent. Mom who was then 85 tried it and sent to back to us as too hard.).

My favorite is the memory foam coccyx wedge seat cushion. It comes in tan or navy .

One other option is the Fleece Coccyx Wedge Seat Cushion with Handle which I share on my desk chair with Buddy, the Siamese cat. (He sleeps there when I am at the office during the day.)

All three cushions are 3 inches thick. You may need two cushions to boost you high enough.  See our website if you need a navy memory foam lumbar support cushion or a high density foam cushion with back strap and fluid resistant cover. We also have synthetic fleece neck pillows with polyester fill and in navy and in tan that strap around head rests for additional comfort as you drive or nap in your car.

Please contact us if you have further questions.

Sincerely,
Barbara

Where Can You Use a Neck Support Cushion?

Q: "Will the CA-232 Auto Neck Support Cushion with Headrest Strap work on an office chair?"

Answer: You can use this neck cushion with any chair just by placing it behind your head. However, it works best when you use the support strap to keep it in place.
Customer Response: "Thank you for your very prompt reply. Now I shall go ahead and order the item."

Note: Since this was answered, we've added a memory foam neck support pillow covered in navy or tan velour with a two piece velcro connected adjustable headrest strap. This is great for those with neck problems who cannot fit their orthopedic pillow into their suitcase. Use this under your neck for support while you travel. The cushion our customer refers to is a white fleece polyester filled neck pillow. I personally travel with the tan memory foam cushion and a brightly colored pillow case. I used the neck support pillow directly under my neck when I sleep with my head resting on whatever thin (usually) pillow the cruise ship or motel provides me. The pillow also pads my C-PAP machine in my carry on bag

Thanks for the question.
