Car seats are not really very comfortable to sit on. Most manufacturers focus on durability rather than comfort so it can get very tiring when driving or just taking a ride. This comfort problem can be addressed by using car seat cushions-ergonomic cushions designed specifically for the seats of cars. Their main function is to remove or alleviate the stress caused by prolonged sitting. This cushion allow drivers and passengers to sit in the position they are most comfortable in.

There are a lot of designs for car seat cushions. The most common are those which are simply put on top of the seats and support the entire back and butt. Many are contoured to provide additional support. The basic material used for this cushion is essentially leather stuffed with foam which is scratch resistant. Other pads of this type include ones that have beads or small massagers for extra comfort.

There area also seat cushions which are smaller and support only the back, the butt, or the lumbar area. These are designed for correcting posture or for simply making sitting easier. They absorb the pressure on the back and the butt. Some car seat cushions of this kind are sculpted to perfectly fit the butt. There are also cushions that are shaped like wedges for lifting the driver eyes higher above the steering wheel. These wedge seats are ideal for old cars whose seats have settled in.

These cushions are made with special foam and designed with a special contour to adjust to a person's back to give comfort, specially for those extra long trips. Seat installation is made easy by side straps, which secure the cushion onto the seat. It can easily fit with all types of car seats. A portion of these pillows features thermo-sensitive which release heat and vibrating massagers for instant relief for your back pain.

Newer designs of car seat cushions include the inflatable ones which adjust to the driver's movements. These cushions can also cat as massages and aid in blood circulation that is usually stumped by prolong sitting. These seats support the back, the lumbar area, the butt and the legs so they are very comfortable to use.

Car seat cushions are usually colored to fit the interior of the car. There are also leather cushions available if you are going for the elegant look and there are also synthetic ones which can have different patterns. There are many designs when it comes to colors and prints so finding the right one for specific cars won't be a problem.
