If there is one health problem that people suffer from due to lack of comfortable sitting items, it is backaches and neck pains. The changing technology is not making it any easier, with most people spending the better part of our lives seated.

Luckily, there are many solutions in the market that address this problem. Instead of providing an ergonomic chair that caters to these concerts, Worick Cushion provides a memory foam cushion. You can place the cushion anywhere, from your office chair to any outdoor sitting furniture or any surface. The Worick Cushion is not available in the market yet, with shipping scheduled for April 2021.

Notable Features of Worick Cushion

  1. Hygienic – it is made using antibacterial polymer material, reducing the absorption of bacteria and dust. This helps reduce allergic reactions from the accumulation of dust on such a surface, which attracts dust mites and bugs.
  2. Quality materials – the natural rubber and 100% cotton materials are durable and breathable. The breathability ensures it enhances airflow, whisks away moisture, and keeps the cushion dry for your comfort.
  3. With the body posture where your lower body part stays upright, the core muscles will activate, increasing their blood circulation.
  4. The U-shape of Worick Cushion also helps distribute your weight evenly, relieving pressure on your bones and hips.
  5. It is waterproof, so it stays dry in case of accidental spills.
  6. It is also elastic, reducing wear and tear.
  7. Non-slip coating ensuring the cushion stays in place.
  8. The cushion is removable for easy cleaning and maintaining of high hygiene levels.

Where to use the Worick:

  • Extended drives
  • In the office
  • Motorized scooters or wheelchairs
  • Outdoor activities

Should You Back the Project?

It all depends on your preferences. For instance, are you willing to wait until April when shipping starts? If so, are you okay with the prices on Indiegogo? The super early price is still available with little stock left at $45.00 for one Worick Cushion. That’s about 37% off the estimated retail price of $72.00.

But there are alternatives in the market, and with an affordable price, too. Xtreme Comfort Store sells its Deluxe model at $37.99, while 5 Stars United Store sells one at $32.99. Other brands, like Solutionster, are using gel instead of memory foam. Still, the seat cushion is more affordable at $36.99 while delivering the same benefits as the Worick Cushion.

Also, this is the first campaign by the team, and there’s little information about the company available. But every crowdfunding team has to start somewhere, and there’s always a first. If you are willing to take the risks, you can back the crowdfunding campaign.
