It’s only recently we we made a miracle discovery – the sit bone cushion. Until then we’d been covering our home office chair with smart cushions, cashmere scarves or even thick wintercoats – all to relieve the bottom pain of sitting in front of the computer at length. Nothing worked. The pain kept returning. Shifting in the chair, moving the cushion around and getting up all the time to make tea – any excuse… Until then we’d been covering our home office chair with smart cushions, cashmere scarves or even thick wintercoats – all to relieve the bottom pain of sitting in front of the computer at length.

Reducing Pressure on the Bony Parts when sitting on a home office chair
Until the doughnut shaped cushion was lent to us to place on top of a non-pc office chair – we haven’t looked back since. The cushion revolutionised our work efforts – made it possible to sit down at length without any pain. But as we ordered our own cushion we opted for the sit bone cushion with two holes. Some cushions specifically support the back while sitting down – the two-holed cushion supports the bottom, the hamstring and the sit bone.
Different support Cushions for different Problems when working from Home
If you’d like to know more about specific cushions then clink on the Amazon links below which feature full descriptions, dimentions, colours and styles as well as prices – which vary from $12 – $85 or (£10 – £70). As we spend more time working from home – perhaps setting up a business at the kitchen table – the furniture may not always be work friendly. Outside the modern corporate office environment we don’t have access to ergonomic chairs and a supporting Occupational Health department on stand by…
We can’t recommend the sit bone cushion highly enough. But there are many different types on the market and they support different parts of the body.
If you are healthy and it hurts just sitting for a while you may need a sit bone cushion. But get to know exactly where your problem lies and search the shops or online for the models that address your specific problem.
The cushions vary in sizes and shapes – most come as a doughnut (or foam ring) cushion with a hole in the centre – good for back support. Some come with two holes which are perfect for sitting bones – or ordinary pain from sitting still for too long. Sizes are roughly 14″ x 17″ (or 35cm x 43cm). And some are shaped asymmetrically – elevated in one end to lift your bottom or knees higher from the seat, depending on how you place it on the seat.
We have one gripe though: The cushion is not the smart interior designed accessory to flatter your furniture. Aesthetically, it doesn’t please, but health is nevertheless more important… Depending on which one you chose, it can be sleek, hygenic, washable and some come with removable cover. An absolute lifesaver and, of course, it can be easily disptatched of once guests arrive…
