    Has anyone ever used this cushion or know of anyone who has ? It is a small air filled cushion with little nubs that you sit on that is suppose to help with back pain. I saw it advertised but none of my local stores carry it including the medical supply store. I don't have money to waste if it does not work ($28 inc. shipping) but if it does it would be worth the money to relieve my back pain. Any thoughts?

    P.S. I tried to post a picture but it would not copy and paste.

    What is Craft Warehouse? Is this a store in your state or an online store. I live in Michigan and have not heard of it.

    Thanks

    I have one and I love it! I purchased it just before a weekend quilting "bootcamp". I took a class that ran Friday 6-12, Saturday 10-10 and Sunday 10-4. I have problems with my sciatic (sp?) nerve and figured I'd be in bad shape by Sunday afternoon. I came through it just fine! It really helped with this kind of pain as it allows for movement without compression. If you move to one side or the other the air in the cushion adjusts so you're not pressing harder on the side you're leaning towards. (I don't know if that makes sense or not.) I let my girlfriend try it one day when she was down quilting with me and she ended up buying herself one for use at work. I'd recommend it.

    I believe I saw one of these advertised at Nancy's Notions. I wasn't sure how well it would work so glad to read a good review.

    I bought at the MN Quilt Expo in 2009. I broke my tailbone and could only sit on one cheek! I still use it every day. It has really helped me!

    Probably no Craft Warehouses in Michigan, they're only in the Pacific NW. I think I've seen them at Walmart and Target, with the excercise equipment. It's advertised as a core strengthener, because you're supposed to sit on it and wobble back and forth, which works your side muscles.
