Help with Suspension Seats for my bad back !

Hi, I need to find a pair of suspension seats. I suffer from chronic pain in my spine following surgery many years ago. I encouraged (polite) hubby to by the rib but it is causing me so much pain from the rough waves that I am starting to get very wary of going out on it ! Please help If you know of any companies or individuals that may be able to help I would be very grateful

Thanks Sarah

Thanks Mollers, particularly like the look of Scot seats, but can't see any prices (am I being blind ?)

3k a pop for the Ullmans, less for the Scotts.

Sarah, I saw the Scotseat at Ribex and they look very nice however IMO standing up and using your legs to absorb the shocks in rougher conditions really is the ulitmate in shock absorbtion. At 5k for a pair of shock absorbing seats my legs are going to be doing a lot more work

RIBase
Sarahscottiedog - bad, wicked and all as you may be, you deserve a set of ScotSeats.

I've checked them out (on the Redbay 1050) and despite what that tightwad Chris says, they're vastly superior to jockey seats (I have lower back and compressed disc issues ). I have a price list from ScotSeats if you want a copy (PM me)
