The older I get, the more sitting I seem to do. And my old chairs could use an upgrade because their stuffing has been flat for a while. How to make chairs more comfortable for us? We don’t get out as much as we used to, especially to go chair shopping. So I looked online and found the ComfiLife Gel Enhanced Seat Cushion.
Important note: Always discuss any sitting discomfort with your personal physician or healthcare provider. Back issues can be complex and we aren’t medical professionals! Ask if they recommend using a seat cushion. Then read on for our experience with the ComfiLife products.
How to Make Sitting More Comfortable?
The ComfiLife Gel Enhanced Seat Cushion has made sitting more comfortable, without buying new chairs.
The supportive ComfiLife chair cushion makes my old office chair more comfortable. But even better, I found it makes all of my chairs more comfortable.
Memory Foam Seat Cushion for Office Chair
I find the ComfiLife cushion comfortably firm. A velvety soft velour fabric covers a gel-topped memory foam cushion. The bottom is covered with a knobby plastic texture that helps keep it from sliding around on the chair.
The ComfiLife’s handle and light weight makes it easy to carry from room to room and chair to chair. The cover is removable for washing when necessary. The cover seems like a pretty tight fit, though. So I might wait for one of the kids to replace the cover after washing it.
It sports a soft handle of the same material for carrying. Inside the zippered cover, the cushion is made of polyurethane foam with gel memory foam top. The bottom is covered with a grippy, raised texture that helps keep it from sliding on the chair surface.
The thick ComfiLife Seat Cushion comes wrapped in plastic. I didn’t notice any chemical smell when I took off the plastic. However the manufacturer says some chemical smell may be apparent from the memory foam, and recommends to let it air out if you notice any chemical smell.
How to Use the ComfiLife Seat Cushion (VIDEO)
To use the ComfiLife Seat Cushion, place the cushion on the chair, grippy side down, with the cut out edge toward the back of the chair. The curvy edge goes toward the front of the chair.
Comfi Life Cushion Dimensions and Materials
The ComfiLife Seat is covered with a gray (also available in black) velvety polyester material and measures approximately 17.5 inches from side to side, 13.5 inches front to back and 2.5 inches thick.
ComfiLife Lumbar Support Back Pillow
We liked the ComfiLife Seat Cushion so much we tried the ComfiLife Lumbar Support Back Pillow, too.
The Lumbar Pillow is covered in the same soft, velvety material. Where your back meets the pillow, however, is a mesh covering, which helps dissipate heat. The Lumbar Pillow has a zipper to remove it for washing, although it is quite a tight fit. Since it’s positioned on the back of the chair and not likely to get too dirty, I don’t think that will be a problem for my old hands.
Measuring 15” wide and 12” high, the Lumbar Pillow sports adjustable straps that keep the cushion in place on my chair. It includes stretchy extension straps to help it fit a range of chair backs.
A cushion for every chair
The ComfiLife Seat Cushion and Lumbar Pillow also come as a Seat Cushion/ Lumbar Pillow bundle. Both are great additions for my office chair.
But this seat cushion and/or lumbar pillow can also be used for the couch, recliner, or almost any seat where you need a little extra cushion for sitting.
The ComfiLife Seat Cushion makes sitting in my old office chair more comfortable. And once my husband tried my new cushion, he had to have one, too. He can now comfortably enjoy his afternoon nap in his “new” recliner and he loves it.
Ideally I would have purchased new recliners for the den. But we haven’t been out to shop furniture stores to choose a new style and fabric. So, the ComfiLife cushions have added new life to our old, rather worn recliners. And they’ve given a bit longer life to our office chairs.
ComfiLife cushions are substantial yet lightweight enough to easily carry from room to room. We have had ours for more than a year and they haven’t seemed to have lost any of their cushioning. They are still as easy to sit on as when we got them.
I had been sitting on a wobble cushion. The wobble seat helped me shift my weight off of sore points. It seemed like what I needed until I tried the ComfiLife seat cushion.
All in all, the ComfiLife has made sitting easier for us. But, as always, check any physical pain or discomfort with your own personal medical professionals first!
