Product Overview:

Coccyx Cushion - Tailbone Cushion


The Visco Memory Foam Coccyx Cushion is made of high quality standard density memory foam (3.5lb) and helps relieve back pain by reducing the pressure on the spine and coccyx. The temperature-sensitive coccyx pillow foam interacts with body heat to gently mold to your shape and provides customized comfort. The cut-out section eliminates painful pressure on the tailbone. Sloping wedge shape helps correctly align spine and tilts the pelvis forward to restore the natural lumbar curve, a position often recommended by doctors to provide maximum comfort and relief. Can be used with almost any seat: Car seat, Office chair, Home.....virtually anywhere.

Coccyx (tailbone) bone pain can come from local trauma or childbirth. A fall on the tailbone can stress the ligaments or injure the attachment to the sacrum. In a significant percentage of tailbone pain the cause is unknown (always check with your doctor for diagnosis and proper care).

Individuals with tailbone or coccyx pain (Coccydynia) often find sitting is the most aggravating position. Many tailbone pain sufferers find the most comfortable cushion is the type with a cut-out at the back, underneath the coccyx so that no direct pressure is placed on the coccyx.


What is memory foam?

Visco-elastic memory foam was originally developed by NASA and used on space shuttles to relieve pressure on astronauts caused by G-Forces during take off. It is several times denser than regular polyurethane foams, is temperature sensitive and always recovers to original shape. It is also called slow-recovery foam (see picture). Due to its distinctive property in relieving pressure, memory foam has been developed into many products such as pillows, toppers, wedges, supports, etc., to benefit millions of consumers worldwide.


What benefits does memory foam offer?

Memory foam offers the following benefits that, in combination, provides the ultimate stress and pressure relieving support:

  • Memory foam has higher density and thus is more supportive and conforms to your body more.
  • Memory foam is temperature sensitive. In normal temperature, it is firm, but when you use it, it reacts to your body temperature and molds to your shape. This way, it minimizes the pressure points, distributes the weight more evenly and provides customized support.
  • High quality memory foam often has open cell structure that breathes better and helps distributes the weight evenly.


Are all memory foams the same?

No. There are huge differences in quality.

One of the key differences is density. Usually, the denser the foam, the more supportive it is and the more it conforms to your body. High density foam (e.g., 6lb/ft3 ) is usually made with molding process while low density (e.g., 3.5lb/ft3) foaming-and-cutting process.

Durability is another important quality aspect. Due to manufacturing differences, some foams lose their “slow recovery property" over a short period of time while high quality foamsnever lose their resiliency.

Cell structure is also important. High density, high quality foams usually have much smaller cells and thus many more cells per unit volume. This helps the foam breathe better and thus distributes weight more evenly.


How do I know which memory foam product is high quality?

  • Hold It: High density memory foam product is heavier than other products of the same size.
  • Press It: If you use your hand to pressure the foam, it should recover to its original shape slowly. If the foam recovers too quickly, then the quality is probably lower.
  • Look at It: High quality foam usually have smaller and denser cell structure. If you see big cells, then the foam’s quality is probably lower.
  • Use It: If the foam loses it’s supportive property and feels like a regular foam after being used for a short period of time, then its quality is low. High quality foam maintains its resiliency even after a long period of time.
