Q & A
First make sure you have followed the sitting instructions and pulled BackJoy snug under your buttocks and “skootched” back into your seat properly. Sometimes changing your sitting posture can cause temporary discomfort - like going to the gym for the first time. Your muscles, joints, and ligaments may need time to adjust and relax. In this case limit usage to 15 minutes, then 30, and upward over a few days or weeks. If there is an increase in pain, stop using BackJoy and consult a medical professional.
Its Too Small?
BackJoy is small on purpose. To work it must be smaller than your buttocks. It is designed to cradle the 10 -13cm (4”-5”) space around the two sitting bones at the base of your pelvis. It is most effective for adults between 40.8kg & 136kg (90 & 300 lbs). Optimum effectiveness is between 50kg & 122.5kg (110 & 270 lbs). If you weigh less than 40.8kgs, BackJoy may be too big for you.
When Should I Feel Results?
Many users experience immediate relief, and some require several weeks of regular use to feel the benefits of BackJoy. Your results will depend upon your underlying conditions and how often you use BackJoy. If you don’t feel any change when you sit on BackJoy, make sure you have closely followed the sitting instructions and your buttocks muscles are firmly cupped.
Does it Work on Soft Sofas?
Yes, BackJoy’s Orthotic Cradling System will be active when you sit on soft cushions. It is important to note that when you sit down into the soft cushions of a couch, your gluteus muscles can stretch and flatten even more than they do when you sit on a hard chair. Stretching and flattening will aggravate back pain.
“BackJoy is wonderful. It really makes a difference when you are sitting in any chair. I just order another one for myself and two more for a friend who has back problems.” - Susan L.
“You mention all the good things about it. I don't think you people have any idea of how really great your product is. For instance, I'm 75 years old and am in a wheelchair 10-12 hours daily. Until Back Joy, I had to get up every 1 & 1/2 hours to relieve my back pain caused by sitting. With back joy, I can sit 5 to 6 hours very comfortably, and move only because I have too.
“My husband loves it and he uses one for work in the office and at home! He hasn't stopped thanking me for getting the BackJoy. He has even been asked by co-workers about it and given them info on how to purchase their own!” - A R Bryant Alexandria, VA
“I just received it this evening, sat down and immediately noticed a difference. I gave the other one to my daughter, who also has severe back problems. I can't wait to see what type of difference I will feel, and have, over the next few days.” - Carole M. Florissant, MO
“I can already notice the benefits of back joy and haven't even been using it for a week yet. I find it astonishing that it helps so much with my pain. I am so thankful and hope to see even more improvement. I have early onset arthritis in my lower back and this is truly a gift from God. Thank you!” - Jillian B. Missouri
“I have suffered from low back pain for years. The chair I have at work is horrible & there's no chance of getting another. My father purchased Backjoy Core for me for Christmas and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! My back pain is almost completely gone when I sit on my Backjoy Core! I can definitely tell a difference if I am not using my Backjoy Core. THANKS BACKJOY FOR SUCH A GREAT PRODUCT!!” - Tracy S.
Over the years we have tested hundreds of different back care products. Some good, some bad and some just plain odd !. However the BackJoy really surprised us....its called a back orthotic by the company that makes it, but its really a seat cushion that instantly changes the way you sit.
The patented design of BackJoy Posture+ creates a unique shape to support your body. While using your BackJoy product is easy to use, it is important to sit on it correctly. By ensuring proper placement with the curve cupping up towards your beltline, and the handle between your legs, you will feel the BackJoy difference and be on your way to a happy, healthy back.
>We all sit for an average of 9 hours each day. That adds up to a lot of sitting! BackJoy makes “sitting better” easier, more comfortable, and more consistent, ANYWHERE you sit! It works on any surface – hard or soft, and from a rock hard seat to a soft couch at home. It weighs less than a pound and it is easily portable making it convenient to travel with better posture everywhere you go. With BackJoy Posture+ you can sit better from your home, to the car, office, airplane, events and more. Posture+ is not a simple cushion.

It contains APS™ Technology and Advanced Core Materials™. It was designed so you can automatically sit with optimal sitting posture, anytime, anywhere. And with the impact absorbing, all-conditions skin you can sit from the office chair to a rock hard surface with greater comfort, longer. Here is how it works:
1) The patented Applied Postural Science (APS™) corrects your posture
You know that you are supposed to sit better, but it's hard. Our APS Technology automatically tilts, cups, and floats your pelvis upright so you can find your most balanced and comfortable posture.
2) Posture+ naturally maintains your posture while you sit
You move when you sit – so Posture+ moves with you - freeing your pelvis to actively stabilize your spine. It automatically adapts to your movements to provide constant strain free comfort and optimal posture; and you won’t have to even think about it.
3) BackJoy engages your core muscles
You know how important your core is, but when you sit your core is not engaged. Posture+ dynamically supports your pelvic floor to engage your core. With natural balance and support, you will feel comfortable, stronger and less fatigued after sitting for long periods of time.

How to Use - VERY IMPORTANT !
- Sit on top of BackJoy. The handle goes between your legs. Pull with handle or push BackJoy from behind until snug. Feel it comfortably cup your buttocks.
- Lean a little forward and press with your feet to slide your buttocks towards the rear of the seat. BackJoy will slide with you.
- BackJoy must be under you - make sure you are all the way on top!
- Rule of Thumb ! First, make sure your BackJoy is not behind you and that you are sitting completely ON it, not in it. You should feel it cupping your behind like sitting in a teaspoon. If you are sitting in it correctly there should be NO room between you and the product to place your thumb.
