ErgoDriver is the first fully adjustable and adaptable backrest for car and commercial vehicle drivers. One universal size fits most vehicle/user combinations and its integral harness attaches securely to most drivers’ seats. In standard specification, it has an inflatable lumbar support that can be repositioned to suit the driver. Four further inflatable cells are available. These can also be positioned exactly to the driver’s needs to offer an even more tailored fit.
Features & Benefits
- The adjustable lumbar support can be inflated and deflated and repositioned anywhere inside the backrest so it fits most spine shapes and curvature.
- The 3-way harness attached securely to the driver’s seat to ensure it stays in position in use and when the driver gets in and out of the vehicle.
- Four different optional cells can be added and positioned inside the ErgoDriver to optimise comfort for all users.
- The optional cells enhance comfort for users with non-standard lumbar lordosis (curvature), such as those with kyphosis or scoliosis.

Welcome to our newly ‘refreshed’ eBulletin layout! As mentioned previously, we already had excellent engagement so the brief was always to refresh the design rather than create something radical. We have aimed for a cleaner overall look with our tried-and-tested format of a small number (usually 5) short pieces, offering links to further articles and information. We have also included easy access to our most popular ongoing resources, which can now be found from the four buttons below.
As inboxes get more and more full, it gets harder to make an impact so I really value your support. The number of people who have remained long-term subscribers is particularly gratifying and that makes it even more important that we remain relevant and current, especially in a time of so much uncertainty. I am always delighted to receive comments or criticisms and I would love to hear from you about the new design or any other topic. Just drop me an email.
TOP TIPS VIDEOS
The next stage of our Knowledge Sharing plan for 2022 is our Top Tips Video series. We already have nearly 50 topics lined up and the first ones have just been published. They are deliberately short and to-the-point and usually last less than a minute. The intention is that you will not only learn from these but also be able to share them with colleagues or clients for crystal clear demonstrations of a particular issue. We have created an obvious web location at bit.ly/oe-top-tips or you can find them by clicking on the turquoise button just above my signature.
We have no plans to exhibit at any national exhibitions in the near future but I shall be visiting several events as a delegate. Please let me know if you want to meet up. These are the events I already have in my diary and the days I shall be attending:
Health & Wellbeing, NEC – March 15th/16th – more here
Workplace Trends Spring Summit – March 31st – more here
CIEHF Conference – April 25th/26th – more here
Clerkenwell Design Week – May 25th/26th – more here
IWFM Conference – June 8th – more here.
Although we have suspended national exhibitions, we shall be participating in various regional and local events throughout the year. You may recall that we took part in the Business Expo in Southampton in November so we are now progressing through Hampshire. We shall be in Portsmouth on March 24th and Basingstoke on April 7th. To find out more, please contact my colleague, Neil Hurst, who can give you venue and timing details as well as meeting you on the day if you decide to attend.
Political events are not normally a topic for this newsletter but the crisis in Ukraine certainly puts our own wellbeing challenges very much into context. We are making a company donation to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal through the British Red Cross and our thoughts and hopes are with all those who are impacted by the barbaric actions we see in the news every day
