Easily adjustable and effective back support is essential for long "static" (motorway) journeys. On more "dynamic" daily journeys, lateral back support is essential to protect you from harmful movements (tilting your pelvis, twisting your lumbar vertebrae, etc.).
Also, you should not be « slumped down » in your seat, as you risk creating nervous and muscular tension in your lower back.
How it works
The ad'just back support is a membrane that adjusts in height to target the exact position of your lumbar lordosis. Once in position, it is inflated and deflated with an easily accessible pump.
The side cushions are adjustable with velcro, to support your chest and avoid repetitive twisting movements in the back area.
The triangular cushion opens up your sitting angle, relieving tension in the lower back. It distributes the weight better on your thighs, to protect you from the risk of ankylosing compression points. Its side cushions stabilise your thighs during bends in the road to stop your pelvis from pivoting too much. A removable coccyx zone relieves pressure on that area.
Compared to many other systems, including most systems originally included by car manufacturers, an Ad'just® user can position the lumbar support very precisely: if you are smaller you can position it lower than if you are taller.
Also, the pump is easy to use while in the car, allowing users to adjust their back support position whenever they like, and find the best level of comfort, which will necessarily reduce their back pain.
It is important to know that the position of the lumbar vertebrae directly affects the position of the cervical vertebrae.

Why is the lumbar region sensitive?
Without Ad'just cushions
BACK AREA = DANGER ZONE
It is very harmful to slump down in your seat.
It’s dangerous because it has to support 2/3 of your body weight while being the most mobile area of your torso!
With Ad'just cushions
CORRECT POSITION = SAFETY
Beneficial to support the hollow in your back and open the angle between torso and leg.
Tilting to right and left when driving round corners is very harmful!
Beneficial to keep your back straight!
Look after your back with ad'just
Did you know that lower back pain is the main cause of :
- work accidents or lost work days
- consultations with a general practitioner
- disability before the age of 45.
Absenteeism and/or reduced productivity are very costly to the community: it is estimated that 30 million working days are lost each year, at a cost of between 1.5 and 2 billion to the Social Security system!
Jean Tognet originally created the Ad’just cushions to relieve his own back pain in the car, and it was so helpful and relevant that he decided to market them.
We have worked with professionals such as the Taxi Union in Lyon, France to bring you a car back cushion with essential benefits: back support and side padding. To ensure a high level of quality and efficiency, we subcontract its manufacture to a company specialising in orthopaedic equipment. Our professionalism has already been rewarded by the Lyon 2015 and Lille 2016 Occupational Health and Safety Innovation Awards.
Whether for acute or chronic lower back pain or for preventive, post-traumatic or post-operative treatment, ad'just cushions are simple and economical solutions... more comfortable and more effective in the car than a lumbar belt.
Whether for work or on private trips, the Ad'just lumbar cushion and the Ad'just seat cushion take care of your back for a more relaxed and safe driving experience.
The Ad'just cushions have been developed with the help of the Lyon Taxi Union, which is mindful of its members’ MSD*.
* Musculoskeletal disorders
Ad'just is recommended by doctors, back surgeons, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, physical therapists, employment agencies, Health and Safety managers, QWL (Quality of Life at Work) managers, etc. We learned this through communicating with them directly and through user feedback.
