Best Seat Cushions of 2020

If your are looking for the best seat cushion office chair, car, airplane, back pain, sciatica or any other possible situation, then you are in the right place.

I collected several cushions for the purpose of this review, tried them all out and shared my personal experience right below. 

Best Ergonomic Seat Cushions

Here is the list of different type of seat cushions you can use for car, chair, wheelchair, airplane and any other environment you can think of. Check them out!

Donut Seat Cushion

First on the list is this donut-shaped orthopedic seat cushion. 

Unlike inflatable donut cushions, this one is made from memory foam which acts as an excellent support for anyone struggling with wide range of issues including coccyx/tailbone pain, hemorrhoid, hip pain and sciatica. It is best used with ergonomic chairs and cars but it can also be considered as a seat cushion for pregnancy, wheelchair and even stadiums!

As my tests showed (read the full donut seat cushion review here), the memory foam is just about right – it’s firm enough to not get flat even after long sitting hours, nor is it too hard to make sitting uncomfortable.

The ergonomic design is great too – it has indentations for thighs and coccyx. This reduces hip and lower back pain. 

The seat cushion comes in two versions – male and female. And, trust me, there is a difference!



Premium Gel Seat Cushion – Posturion

Gel Seat Cushion

Next on the list is the cooling gel seat cushion (full review) also sold by Posturion. 

Unlike the previous cushion, this seat pillow is made out of gel-like material. When I first got the cushion I really thought that this gel seat pad is a gimmick because it’s not really orthopedic, nor is it ergonomic (I mean, there is no memory foam at all!). To my surprise, I soon discovered that I am using it just about all the time (I’m actually sitting on it now that I am writing this).

I really like how this honeycomb gel design works when I sit on it in my ergonomic office chair. It promotes blood flow and I don’t get tired from sitting as much as I would have without using this gel cushion.

It also has spectacular breathability – the honeycomb cells put through as much air as possible! I really like for when driving around and it’s definitely a lifesaver when I travel for a few hours in my car.

Even though it wouldn’t necessarily help to improve extreme cases of hip, coccyx or tailbone pain, this gel cushion certainly does help to reduce the strain and discomfort you would experience from prolonged sitting. 

To summarize, I like and recommend this gel pad as a day to day seat cushion.

A high quality U-shaped seat cushion which is specifically designed for anyone with coccyx/tailbone pain (e.g. fracture, nerve irritation or damage).

Well, if you think your buttocks are flat and you wish it was better shaped, I have some good news for you. Aside from all the benefits that this butt pillow offers, it promises to leave you with a better shaped butt after a period of continuous use which is why it’s on our seat cushions list.
