The Lumbarpack

It's a backpack-styled lumbar roll or pillow that will stay in place while driving, working, or lounging, thanks to the attached shoulder straps.

If you sit a lot, you should take frequent breaks to ease the tension. If you drive a taxi or sit at a desk all day, this may be just what you need to keep your back properly curved and comfortable.

The purpose of this device is to serve as a lumbar pillow, but one that will not slip or fall if you lean or twist or wriggle around. The adjustable straps allow users to customize exactly where the lumbar roll. The roll is cushioned but is firm enough to help maintain the natural curve in the lower back. If desired, a tennis ball may be inserted inside the pillow cover to concentrate on a knot that needs extra pressure. Heating the pillow may also be an option when taut muscles need softening with heat.

       It's OK, [21 Quest]; it works all night and it works all day.

       Perhaps it should come in a red plaid pattern?

       (sp: taught -> taut, unless yours are smarter than mine) (which is not unlikely)

       Ah, thanks [lurch]! Fixing...   

       And no, my muscles are just as dumb as anyone's.

       Good idea.
There is muscle-memory...
Sciattica! Sciattica!
