The Original McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll 

Equipped with injection moulded foam, the Original McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll is the most advanced and firm of the Original McKenzie lumbar rolls. It naturally contours to the shape of your back and is compatible with the majority of chairs, for unparalleled lumbar support alongside unparalleled comfort.

What Kind of Support Does This Roll Offer?

The Original McKenzie Lumbar Roll is a lumbar support which helps to prevent and reduce lower back discomfort caused by long periods of sitting in an unsupportive chair. While specifically targeting therapy towards the lower back and spine, its injection moulded foam naturally contours around your back, providing bespoke 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 Super Lumbar Roll?

It is exceptionally easy to use the McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll. For best results it should be strapped to your chair at waist height. Then you should sit upright, as far back in your chair as is possible.

What Are the Dimensions of The Roll?

This roll features a width of 13cm and a height of 28cm. Its depth varies under the weight of a person, but is around 7cm at its deepest point before use.

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 Super Roll?

A McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll is ideal for anyone who experiences back discomfort from sitting in straight backed chairs or chairs which do not provide proper ergonomic support to their spine, and who has found more moderate support is insufficient or uncomfortable. This is particularly true for anyone whose job demands they sit for long periods of time without many opportunities to stand or walk around, such as office workers or professional drivers.

How Dense Is This Lumbar Roll?

This firm lumbar roll uses injection moulded foam to provide the best level of lumbar support. It features a foam density of 28kg/m3 and a foam hardness of 110 Newtons, for robust and dynamic support. Because of its high quality construction the Super Lumbar Roll can be relied upon to to maintain its dynamic, contouring qualities and density even after extended use.

How Comfortable Is the McKenzie Super Roll?

The injection moulded foam helps to perfectly contour your body for the most comfortable fit. While firm, this lumbar roll is less deep than other models, and does not feel too awkward on your chair.

Which Kinds of Chairs Is This Lumbar Roll Suitable For?

The Original McKenzie Super Roll works well with a wide selection of chairs of different kinds, including:

  • Office chairs
  • Settees or sofas – if there is an appropriate back-cushion or other location to strap the support
  • Arm chairs
  • Car Seats
  • Desk chairs
  • Kitchen/dining chairs
  • Any other straight backed chair in which you must spend extended periods

When Should I Use the McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll?

You should use the Original McKenzie Super 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 chairs, so can be moved between different seats during the day.

What If I Want Something with a More 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 Orignial 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 Alternative?

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.

Received this within two days of ordering - fantastic service!
This enabled me to drive with much less pain, sit more comfortably as a car passenger and cope with a long flight.
I have recommended this to others - definitely worth getting.
