The Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Support

Slighter softer than the Original McKenzie Lumbar Roll, the Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Support works to reduce lower back and pain in the same way as the Original does, but with the added benefit of a D-shape design, which offers a flatter surface to help keep the cushion in place better. This zip-free D-shape roll is ideal for attaching onto soft seats, especially sofas, and is particularly beneficial for use by larger or overweight users.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Back Support Roll

Who Can Make Gains with the Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Support?

Like all Original McKenzie Lumbar Supports, this support offers effective lumbar support to reduce discomfort and pain caused by spending long periods sitting in a poorly supportive chair. The firm support of this larger D-shaped roll is ideal for use on soft furnishings, but also for those with larger builds, or who are overweight, and in need of large, impactful support.

What Causes Back Pain when Sitting?

Generally speaking, sitting down causes the back muscles and ligaments to stretch, which puts stress on the surrounding tissue. Over time, this can build into discomfort, fatigue and ultimately pain. Since many chairs do not support the natural shape of the spine, they can encourage sitters to adopt hunched or bent positions, which only make this strain worse.

How Can a Lumbar Support Resolve This Pain?

By gently pushing in on your lower spine, a lumbar support helps your body and spine to achieve a more natural posture. This allows the muscles and ligaments surrounding your spine to relax, and gradually reduces the strain on surrounding tissues.

How Do I Use the Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Support?

It is exceptionally easy to use the McKenzie D-Shaped Lumbar Support. For best results it should be strapped to your chair, sofa or soft furnishing at waist height. Then you should sit upright, as far back in your chair as is possible.

What Are the Dimensions of the Support?

This d-shape roll has a length of 30cm and a diameter of 14cm.

How Long Is the Strap?

Because it is elasticated, the McKenzie Lumbar Roll strap is able to fit a large number of chairs comfortably. Before being stretched it is around 20 inches long (allowing for a total circumference of around 31 inches including the roll itself) and it can stretch to a maximum of 31 inches (allowing for a total circumference of around 42 inches).

Who Can Benefit from a McKenzie D-Shape Support?

A McKenzie D-Support Lumbar Roll is for anyone who experiences back discomfort from sitting in soft furnished backed chairs or sofas which do not provide proper ergonomic support to their spine. It is also ideal for larger users or overweight users who receive insufficient lumbar supports in their hard-backed seats, particularly those who must sit for their jobs, such as professional drivers.

How Dense Is This Lumbar Roll?

This firm lumbar support uses a high density foam to maintain reliably firm support. It features a foam hardness of 125 Newtons, for robust and dynamic support. Because of its high quality construction the D-Shaped Lumbar Support can be relied upon to to maintain its dynamic, contouring qualities and density even after extended use.

How Comfortable Is the McKenzie D-Shape?

The dense foam compresses slightly to the contours of your body to achieve a generally comfortable fit. For most users, however, the size and density of this support makes it uncomfortable on a normal hard-backed chair – it is better for use on soft furnishings, such as sofas.

Is It Possible to Wash This Support?

While the support cushion itself cannot be washed, it is supplied in a soft case which can be removed and washed for the best levels of hygiene. It can be safely washed up to 40ºC.

Which Kinds of Chairs Is This Lumbar Roll Suitable For?

The Original McKenzie D-Shape Support works well with a wide selection of chairs, but its large profile and firm support mean that for the majority of users it is most appropriate for soft furnishings such as sofas or settees. For larger users and overweight users it can also be used on a variety of straight backed chairs or office chairs.

When Should I Use the McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll?

You should use the Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll whenever you expect to sit for a long period of time, even before your back pain has developed – since it works best to prevent the emergence of discomfort. Because it uses a standard clip buckle, the roll is easy to attach and remove from soft furnishings and chairs, so can be moved between different seats during the day.

What If I Want Something with a Shallow Profile?

If you require a cushion with less depth than this lumbar roll, the Original McKenzie Slimline Lumbar Roll is an asymmetrical alternative with a depth of 2". This flatter design is ideal for elderly users, or those with smaller builds, and features a similar crescent shape to hug the contours of your back.

Is There a Basic Model Available?

The original Original McKenzie Lumbar Roll has none of the added flash of other models of Original McKenzie Lumbar Rolls, but offers everything you need for effective lower back pain and discomfort relief. Its standard foam body is medium density, and is comfortable to use despite its larger size than some models.

Can I Buy a Heavy-Duty Version?

For firmer support than is offered by the standard model, the Original McKenzie Heavy Duty Lumbar Roll is a high density alternative. In the same shape, and available with the same thicknesses as the standard model, this version simply offers firmer support.

Is There a Travel Option?

The Original McKenzie Airback Lumbar Roll is an inflatable alternative designed to maximise comfort and prevent pain when travelling. This can be a particular problem on planes, trains or coaches, and the inflatable design of the Airback allows it to be quickly packed away or used whenever needed.

Is There a More Advanced Alternative?

Featuring an injection moulded foam in place of the firm density foam of the standard model, the Original McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll offers superior, dynamic support. This is perfect for those who continue to experience discomfort even with a standard roll support.
