How does QiPillow differ from ordinary pillows? In a word: support.
QiPillow is far more than an ordinary pillow. It provides scientifically tested orthopedic back support for people of all shapes and sizes. The QiPillow has been proven in a third party clinical study to help 91% of back pain sufferers relieve their back stiffness, pain and fatigue, and improve their sitting posture and comfort.
Like a Sleep Number bed, it uses an air controlled orthopedic core to provide the much needed dynamic and individualized support to your back. Unlike ordinary pillows, QiPillow does not collapse under bodyweight and will help you to maintain the correct posture.With QiPillow, your back support will always adjust to your body, seat and comfort, instead of the other way round.
As soon as we sit still for twenty minutes, the deep stabilizing muscles in our back will begin to tense up, which can often lead to stiffness, pain and fatigue in the back. To prevent these issues, you must keep you back in motion even though you are sitting Why is it important for your pillow not to collapse under your bodyweight? Even though you are unaware of it, your lower back will start to slouch, as soon as a pillow collapses. That leads to extra pressure on the lumbar spine, which then ultimately, leads to back pain. The QiPillow does not allow that to happen because it supports your body weight the entire time.

I received the Camel colored QiPillow for free in exchange for sharing my review with my readers. I wanted to try it out because all the throw pillows we have on the couch were either too thick, or too small. The fact that it is totally adjustable means you can have it adjust to any body size and shape!
It only takes a few puffs to inflate the pillow fully. I found I had to let a lot of air out to make it suit my body.
I generally use this pillow half behind me, half on my side since I sit in the corner of the couch, sort of at a 45° angle.
For a pillow filled with air, this is surprisingly VERY comfortable. If i start to slouch, the pillow gives my lower back more support, and if I sit up straight the pillow supports my middle and upper pack. I really thought it was going to feel like an air mattress and be loud and stiff, but the pillow has the inner chamber and then the microsuede cover that gives it a soft plush feel and there isnt any noise when you move.
At the current price, it is a little expensive for my budget, but I think that if you are suffering with back issues, it is worth a shot.
