I originally got this massage cushion because I was getting a sore back in my car. I was attracted to it mainly because I needed support, not because I wanted the massage system, and the inflatable pad (the coloured section in the picture) offered this.
I have a mixed opinion of this product because it works, but there are some design problems. The main problem I experienced is that the deflate button is located to the bottom right, and close to where you’d be sitting. As I was using this cushion in the car, when I turned corners, sometimes I would bump the deflate button accidentally and the pad would deflate. I tried to safe guard this button in several ways, but none of them worked. I couldn’t manage to keep the cushion inflated for any long period of time no matter how I tried to sit, position the cushion or protect the button.
Another tiny error I experienced was that the charger cord is to the bottom right. This is problem because you have to find a way to weave the cord to the other side of the cushion to reach a power source. This really isn’t a big problem, just a noticeable one, but I understand that the product is American and therefore would work for left-hand drive cars. Homedics were clever, however, and gave the plug a long cord and so it worked out good in the end anyway.
Some good points are that the massage wasn’t painful. Sometimes the massage systems they install into such products hurt more than you’d expect, but this one worked out good. I didn’t use the heat function much-it sort of annoyed me. The inflatable pad, despite my problems, is surprisingly precise. You manually pump up the support pad and can then deflate it to the precise measure that makes you feel comfortable. This worked out better than I thought.
My recommendation is that if you want a massage cushion for an office chair (or a similar situation), this product is great. For what I wanted, it didn’t work. If you want a supporting cushion for the car, don’t buy this, it deflates too much and will simply get frustrated. I personally returned this product.
Pros: offers good support, vibrating massage with optional heat, good size for most chairs, easy to set up and use, looks good
Cons: inflatable pad deflates due to design error, in car the charger cord is on the right-hand side, isn't suitable for car use
