I don't like it. Is it an acquired taste??? This back rest sells at a local store, only store in Toronto that sells them for $195. It's cheaper for you 'Mericans, i've seen them on the web. But for this kinda money, I was expecting a little slice of good-posture heaven when sitting in my office chair or on the couch. Instead, I find it hard and uncomfortable and the material is very scratchy. [doesn't help that I'm having skin sensitivity from meds] I thought I was getting the BRC model which has an additional 1" foam padding, but I don't even know how much 1 inch will help, this thing is HARD. Okay people, opinions please! Who has one and do you like it? They are more made for cars. But I don't have a car to sit on. I have a simple cheap loveseat with little support which is why I was recommended this very expensive back rest. And yes, I tried an obus forme first. The factory is just up the road actually. Well, mabye it's closed down since the murder, but there are plenty of Obus Forme's around and i tried that first, but doensn't really work well on my couch. Searching for an easy posture help solution other than buying an expensive couch which may or may not fit through door and hallway to living room. [Everything else here is Ikea or the like and can be taken apart, don't know if regular couch would fit and buying one would eat up a significant chunk of the money I have for my treatments] Anybody find BRSM backrest uncomfortable at first, but then accustomed to backrest after a few days? Anyone have to return for a BRC with the extra 1" padding? [don't know if I can exchange this, I sorta got it through a friend] I'm so surprised I don't love this. I'm not even that crazy about my new Structure memory foam pillow either! Thought it would really help, but maybe it takes a while for my neck to adjust to that also. I still can only sleep in one position, on my left side with a cervical pillow. anyone have a Structure pillow? Please give me your feedback. thanks very much. I really look forward to hearing other's experiences with these products, esp those with neck problems.
