Think of the Mobile Meditator as cushioning your journey. Besides its use in meditation, it works great as a backrest or pillow.

The sueded plastic pillow from BriteSpot Solutions has three independent inflatable chambers, which rise at a higher angle at the back than at the front. Adjust the center chamber for spine support and pelvic tilt and the two sides for hip and thigh support. (Your back and head can benefit from these adjustable angles as well.)

You can blow up each chamber by blowing into it as you would with any inflatable. To prevent unwanted deflation, the chambers won’t inflate or deflate unless the valve neck is squeezed at the same time, which can require extra effort and breath.

The company offers an optional basic plastic hand pump, but a bicycle pump will do. The pillow is available in six colors, weighs less than a pound, and comes with a matching pouch. Mobile Meditator cushion costs $29.95; optional pump is $1.99.
