Home or in-car use
2 massage areas plus heat facility
Some excess vibration/noise
Short-ish remote cord
Woolworth's Back Massage Cushion with Heat provides SUPERB back comfort for people who have to sit for long periods - i.e. driving or using a computer A BOON!
This portable lightweight unit can be used in the home or in the car as it runs on mains or by a 12v DC adaptor for in-car use. Large elasticated holding strap endsures that the unit fits almost any seat in house or in the car.
The pad vibrates at high or low speed in two separate areas, for the upper and lower back, which are independently controlled by the remote control unit. It also has a heat facility which is similarly selected independently on the remote unit.
The two benefits (massage and heat) and multi-variable controls make this an absolute GODSEND for people with back problems or who have to sit for any length of time.
The only (VERY minor) faults are:
Short-ish remote control cord which may not be long enough to comfortably position the unit to where you are seated.
The slightly excess vibration which occurs when the unit is running can introduce the very peculiar side effect of
causing my computer table to shake/vibrate also - leaving it a touch too shaky to see the screen properly! This is wholly due to the fact that MY feet are braced against the metal legs/stays of the table, so I am transmitting the vibration! Simply take your feet OFF the bottom of the table to stop it happening!!!
At the incredibly LOW retail price of £14.99, this product is WHOLLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
