Just an expensive pillow
PostedMarch 16, 2012
I purchased this pillow because I have tailbone issues and thought perhaps the cutout in the back might be beneficial. The benefit of proper alignment, etc. was not why I bought the pillow, but because I have some back and hip issues, thought it seemed like a good idea. After using it in my office chair at work every weekday for 2-3 weeks I don't feel any difference in my back or hips. Nothing feels more aligned when I use this cusion. I also don't think it is memory foam (which is why only 2 stars for quaility). If it is, it is not like any memory foam I've seen or felt before (like in mattresses, toppers, etc.); I think it is just regular foam. Because I don't want to go through the expense and hassle of returning it and the cutout takes some of the pressure off my tailbone, I will keep it, but I don't feel it works as advertised and it isn't much more comfortable than a regular $5 piece of foam.

Could be better
PostedFebruary 15, 2011
I don't hate it, but I don't love it. If I were to rate the clock solely on the reason why I purchased it, I would give it five stars. However, rating it on the whole package it gets a 2. I wanted it for the "sunrise" light function and it works beautifully, so I'm keeping it. Other than that, it is not much different than the 25 dollar alarm clock I had before it. Here's where it needs improvement:
The display numbers are hard to read and even on the low setting the display is too bright. But it does get points for being reddish orange instead of bluish green (blue light is known to keep people awake by supressing melatonin).
The buttons are too hard to push. You need to use two hands, one to support the back of the clock while you push the button with the other. The clock will topple over if you don't. So you can't make any changes to the settings while you're lying in bed...chances are you'll have to sit up and use two hands.
The nature sounds aren't very "natural." And if you're using the sounds to fall asleep to, the ocean sound in particular has a bird that makes an annoying chirp every couple of seconds. The rain sounds more like a faucet. I really would have thought that for the price of this unit, they could have had more natural sounds.
Luckily, I am a very light sleeper because the alarm sounds only for about 3 minutes and then it shuts itself off until the next morning! So, to the other reviewer that thought her alarm wasn't always functioning, it probably was, it probably just didn't wake you in the first 3 minutes. Or maybe we both got a defective clock!
Oregon Scientific really needs to go back and make some improvements to this clock in order for it to be worth the high dollars.

Eases the neck muscles
PostedFebruary 5, 2011
While using it I am very relaxed and it definitely helps the pain in my neck. I am almost 50 years old and have noticed that for the past 20 of them my neck always seems to bother me. And for the past 20 years my career has been to sit at a desk...I'm sure there is a correlation! With that being said, I use this product about 2-3 times per week and wish I had time to use it more often because it truly is relaxing and helps the tension and pain.

Does the slit on the cushion go toward the front or the back?

Definitely toward the back. I believe your tailbone is meant to be above the slit.

The cusion I received has absolutely no odor. I do have some sensitivities to odors (especially of the chemical nature), but I would not call them serious.

How does this seat cushion compare to the BackJoy? (Which do you prefer?)

Top 100 Contributor

The Backjoy (at least the one I've used in the past) is placed behind your back. This cushion is meant to be sat on, not leaned against. For me, they have a completely different feeling and are not comparable to each other. If I had to choose between one or the other I would choose the seat cusion, I found the backjoy to be very uncomfortable.

Will this work for your basic (padded) office chair?

I am comparing products and while this appears to be the product for me, I am concerned that the cushion will be awkward balancing on top of the already-padded office chairs commonly found in my office / home office, etc.

Does it teeter around at all, or is the support stable? Does it require core strength to keep your posture straight? I'm picturing trying to balance sitting on a phonebook while sitting on a cushion, if that helps for imagery.

I know I definitely need something - I'm constantly subluxated because by the end of the day I am often hunched over literally sitting sideways in my chair!

I've used this on my basic padded office task chair for 3 weeks and it does not teeter - it is definitely stable and does not feel at all like sitting on a telephone book.

Could I use the Real-EASE Relaxation Tool to support my neck & head during sleep?

I sleep on my back and have had trouble finding a pillow/support that just goes behind my neck.

The instructions recommend that you do NOT use while sleeping.

Is this product also intended for use by men? Sometimes these products are designed only for women.
