A lumbar pillow can be placed on your bed or on your chair to help you while you are sitting up, to get the most out of using a lumbar pillow on a chair the placement is quite important, here is how to place a lumbar pillow correctly: 

  • Put the lumbar pillow on the bottom part of the chair so that it is on the seat.
