I was offered a chance to review this firm orthopedic, coccyx cushion from Bael. I received no compensation other than a free product to sample in exchange for an honest review.
This cushion is great if you ever have to sit for hours at a time. There has been much in the recent press about the negative consequences of sitting for hours throughout the day. I try to be as active as possible and wear an activity tracker to motivate me to stay active when possible. But unfortunately the reality is anyone with a sedentary job has to sit more than is ideal. According to Bael Wellness, this cushion mitigates some of the problems that come from sitting for long periods of time. It is designed in a way that encourages good posture. Does it work?
I have been using this cushion for about a week. I’ve mainly used it with my desk chair, a bar stool height chair, and my sewing chair. I started using it as soon as it arrived. I immediately sat up taller and felt less tension in my back. I found I was better able to focus and stay productive. The memory foam is moderately firm, but soft enough to feel comfortable (to me). I have a tendency to slouch and round my back while sitting even though my posture is generally good during activity. It turns just about any chair into an ergonomic chair.
Features & Benefits:
- The Curved Front Design and Graduated Edge help Avoids pressure to lower thigh and position hips for better alignment and posture.
- The cushion is made from high density memory foam – the manufacturer describes it as “high-quality organic memory foam is distinctively built with strategic slopes, edges and curves that each serves a therapeutic purpose”.
- The cutaway tailbone section helps to relieve backbone pressure.
- There is a 1 year money back guarantee
- The smooth velour cover is easily removed for cleaning

While I don’t have on-going or chronic back issues, I do tend feel an achy type of pain and tightness in my hips after hours of sitting. Quite likely, my issue is related to my posture when seated and this cushion has already helped. I haven’t felt as fatigued on days when I spent hours at the desk. I can’t speak to whether the cushion helps with the variety of medical conditions as claimed. But I do believe it is beneficial especially if you have aches and pains that are caused by sitting. Bael describes this seat cushion as “having a natural balance ball effect”. I would tend to agree that it reminds me a little of sitting on a balance ball, but without the extra bonus activity that comes from sitting on a balance ball.
