Many people spend a lot of time sitting down. Whether your job demands spending large amounts of time in a car, or you work from home in front of a computer, or work in an office, sitting for prolonged periods can cause discomfort and back issues. A small triangular-shaped bone at the bottom of the spinal cord is what takes the pressure of prolonged sitting periods. There is, however, a positive option to help, like finding a good orthopedic seat cushion. There are many seat cushions available that help relieve the pressure on the coccyx and spine. These orthopedic seat cushions range in design and material from gel enhanced seat cushions to memory foam seat cushions, and can be used as wheelchair cushions, a cushion for car seats, and home or office chairs. Knowing some of the varieties available as well as their benefits can help you decide which type if best for you.

These orthopedic seat cushions are made with relieving lower back pain in mind. They are entirely made from memory foam and are generally about three inches thick and will not flatten out during use. Memory foam is a good choice for people needing less support, like smaller people.
