Frequently Asked Questions
How Does the Eco Backrest Work?
The Eco Backrest is a simple way to relax your entire body, allowing it to rest in a position called ‘spine nuetral’. This position is as restful as laying down, yet with the Eco Backrest you can still do activities like working on a laptop, reading, playing with children and hanging out with friends. This is a way to restore your energy without taking a nap.
About The Eco Backrest Design
The Eco Backrest is composed of several peices that can be put together and taken apart quickly. This makes it versatile to be used in many ways. The front comprises of a long cushion, divided into two parts: a long trapaziodal cushion for the back, and a small rectangular section for the seat. This cushion ties on to the back frame with straps which supports the back and two protruding “fins” that support the frame to sit upright. The fins are held together with a crossbar. The fins are adjustable, giving the Eco Backrest the option to placed in different lounge positions.
For more on assembly and use, see the videos below.
How Many Positions Are There?
The Eco Backrest has four front facing upright positions. There are six screw holes in the back support. The fins can be placed either in the top and middle holes, or the middle and bottom holes. This gives you two angles. For the other two angles, use these screw holes, but flip the fin upside down. Simply adjust the fin piece to the desired angle. The four angles give options for relaxation, reading, laptop work, or meditation support.
The Eco Backrest has numerous other possibilities if you take off the fins completely and lay it down. You can lean it against something, or place an Eco Cube under the back support for working or reading on your stomach. Laying flat it easily becomes a massage table prop.
See video below for more about assembly and use.
How Easy Is It To Change Positions?
Changing the positions of the fins on the back support takes a few minutes, but it not hard. No tools are needed. Simply unscrew the thumb screws and lift the fin assemble to the desired position and rescrew the thumb screws.
Can I Use Eco Backrests Instead Of A Couch?

What Our Customers Are Saying
I bought your Eco Backrest™ set because since I’ve started working from home, I’ve been switching positions at least a few times a day, but I’m finding that the ways I’m sitting and laying ar far from healthy! I tried to rig up something like it with pillows–but they’re just not cuting it. I also want something that I can move from my bed to my office floor and back easily. I’m super excited to put this to good use!! Thanks so much!
The EcoBackrest™ became an excellent tool to help educate my body on what exactly were beneficial positions of ease while relaxing. After the ‘right’ amount of lounge sitting, my body would be ready to get up and move again. It is also holding up well to much use.
I had purchased the Tilt Seat™ and Eco Backrest™ to make my office station. It has made it so I can work a full day without having major neck and back pain.
This is the most comfortable seat I’ve ever used. It’s also easy to move from room to room. The materials are top notch.
