3 Ways to Beat Lower Back Pain While Driving.
A dept. store, shaped memory foam, with Gel insert, that can vibrate, might look like it would work. Buying a cushion, or back support for lower back and sitting pain, the product is commonly, a one size fits all product. Some may possibly help for one thing, but not another, or not work at all. That’s because, when designing for people, that are both tall and short, and for men and women, that are petite and obese, the performance is lost, in the generic shape of the support.
There are few choices of types cushions, foam and it’s variant types, gels, in slabs, or in molded shapes, and inflatables. Regardless what it is, the product should stop or relieve pain, when driving, and that’s what BikeCushion does best, it addresses sitting issues in three ways.
1. Encourages healthy posture and stability. Stabilize the pelvis, from tilting side to side, that helps keep your spine straight, and reduces fatigue. BikeCushion does allow you to rock forward and back on your sitting bones, but not side to side. The pad, encourages your pelvis to rotate posteriorly, encouraging a proper lordosis, and better posture.
2. Greatly increase blood circulation. The main reason BikeCushion works, is the ability to distribute your weight to increase blood circulation. BikeCushion fits to couple your pelvis, creating high contact with to the capillaries from being crushed. The benefits having good circulation, are many, including lower back pain.
3. Absorbs shock from your spine. Air is compressible, and can absorb shock from the road, and isolate vibrations from the motor. These vibrations aggravate back pain and can make you fatigue.
Major advantage. Gel and foam products break down over time and will eventually stop working. Air does not deteriorate and will always perform the same.
The only cushion, to fit people in 2 ways, Mechanically and Pneumatically.
The mechanical adjustment is, physically separating 2 air pockets, to match the protrusions of the ischial tuberosity. The distance between these 2 bony spots of your ischia, vary depending if you are a woman or a man and how tall you are. An average height women, is going to have a distance of 6″, 15.24 cm apart and If she was 6′, 183 cm tall, her ischial distance will be closer to 6.5″ or 16.5 cm. A short women, the distance between her bones will be closer to 5.5″ or 14 cm. For men, the average distance is 5″ or 12.7 cm of the iscial distance. Taller men, would be closer to 5.5″ and a distance of 4.5″ for shorter men. BikeCushion can fit all these sizes by using a rubber base, with 2 slotted settings for either 5″ or 6″ centers.
NOTE: The standard BikeCushion, will have the Ischial indentations separated at 5.5″ apart, that will accommodate most people, but you can make custom orders, by either calling or emailing you order.

The 2 voided areas, where the strap weaves through, are the ischial tuberosity indentations.
Adjust the air, where you are deeply immersed.
To have the most contact with the cushion, you sit in it deep as possible, with just enough air to keep you a float. Sitting n this state, the capillaries within your skin, will not be squeezed shut from your weight. Different shaped people, require different amounts of air in the bladder.
BikeCushion is superior pad, tor distributing your weight, for circulating blood, then any other product, for your car, truck and motorcycle. BikeCushion will keep working, and working for years, and will never degrade, like foam and gels.
