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

The Car Comfort Combo Diagram


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

If sitting hunched up in the car causes you discomfort, a simple backrest and seat wedge combination could be the comfort breakthrough you are looking for.

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. The seat upholstery of many car seats slope backwards so 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 online customers can learn with a few words and a picture what we have picked up from watching customers for the past 28 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.
  • 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

Work out the seat angle

 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 Comfort 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 e.g. 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".
