A Seat Cushion that Keeps Your Butt Circulating

It wasn't long ago that the term ’sedentary lifestyle' referred either to couch potatoes or to folks whose physical limitations did not allow for them to get out and about too much. But now, everything takes place on the darn computer -- work, socializing, shopping, TV, music, virtual golf, virtual gardening... heck, even doctor's consultations can be conducted online.

It’s those of us who are working and engaged and active…that lead sedentary lifestyles!

But I digress. I'm really writing to let you know that there is a solution for those of us that have "Internet Ass." There's a fix for Internet Ass, and according to the makers of the Circulation Improving Seat Cushion, this fix has already been used by the Air Force to fix their tired arses. The gadget has 12 integrated airbags that alternately inflate and deflate and, by doing so, stimulate circulation in your 'posterior' and legs, relieving pressure points and helping to prevent pressure sores. (Oh my! Is that what I have?) One fix takes about 12 minutes.

I have a list of things I would like to try (TRY list), as long as I can return them if they don't live up to their promises. I'm putting the Circulation Improving Seat Cushion is on that list, because if it genuinely relieves that pressure, and restores circulation it is worth the $300. And if it works I’m going to recommend it to people who really, physically, can't get up and around too much.

The Circulation Improving Seat Cushion is available from Hammacher Schlemmer, so you know you can return it if it doesn't work out, and it comes with a lifetime guarantee. The battery on the cushion is rechargeable and a 2 hour charge lasts for 48 hours... great for a flight to Australia.

I've got to get up. I'm sitting on pins and needles....
