I'm a walking testimonial for LaFuma Chairs --- which are mesh chairs generally designed for outdoor use, I think....BUT - it is so far the only chair that my body/back can sit and rest in comfortably, either sitting up or reclined, or very nearly laid out. I had a herniated disc pressing on a nerve (added to fibro). My first intro to the chair was at a friends house. He also had a disc problem, and his wife ( a doctor) had discovered these chairs. I bought one immediately (online), have since bought one for hubbie, and if we do any kind of car traveling to visit the kids, etc. mine travels with me (very portable). The overstuffed, leather and expensive recliner is in the basement, while our "his'nHer's La Fumas are side by side in the family room. Google "La Fuma" furniture or recliner. My husbands is the XL because he is so tall - it fits him better. Inexpensive, no shipping charges - ya gotta try one!
Thank you everyone for your input! I have just been so uncomfortable and my recent physical therapy has me in a flair so things have been worse than normal.
Lucy, I will definitely be trying the La Fuma Chair. Thank you!
Well speaking of car seats, I have a big beef with the car makers. I don't know why they always make the driver's seat the one that can be powered up/down/forward/backward with the lumbar adjuster,etc., while the passenger side has the basic controls. Sherrine, I have a Subaru outback w/ heated seats (Godsend) on both sides - but the driver's seat is by far the more comfortable one because it can be powered up and down, which effects leg height, etc. I've been meaning to ask the dealer if it's possible to order a "driver's seat" to replace the passenger side - or just wire it up to perform the same tricks, but I guess I've been afraid to hear what the price is. Anyone out there ever done this? Or own a car that has the goodies on both sides? The long trips are murder - and we like to visit our kids (12 hours away).
Wow - thanks for the quick response, Sherrine. I think for me its the ability to move the seat base up or down (rather than just leaning forward or backward). I don't have really long legs or anything - average heighth - but taking the pressure off my legs by raising the seat up seems to really help my back. I have heard that the camry seats are very comfortable.
