McKenzie SlimLine Lumbar Support
The McKenzie™ SlimLine Lumbar Roll with Strap is a ‘D’ shaped lumbar support that is designed to ensure you maintain an optimal spinal position for your lower back whilst sitting (figure 1). This is essential to minimise stress on your spine and is a must for patients who suffer from lower back pain (particularly during or after sitting).

The Original McKenzie™ SlimLine Lumbar Roll can be used to compliment existing lumbar supports, such as those found in modern cars and some modern seating or in chairs with no existing lumbar support. The Original McKenzie™ SlimLine Lumbar Roll has the McKenzie adjustable strap and a removable washable Polar Fleece™ cover, giving it a luxurious feel and making it superior to many other similar ‘D’ shaped supports on the market.

Optimal Sitting Posture with the McKenzie™ SlimLine Lumbar Roll
X-rays of the lower back during sitting demonstrate that the lower back falls into a flexed (forward bent position). This is particularly the case when sitting slouched (figure 2) – which places the lower back into it’s maximal forward bend (similar to standing up and touching your toes). This position places considerable stress on the lower back and can cause back injuries or perpetuate existing lower back injuries. It also places the upper back and neck into poor postural alignment increasing stress on these regions and increasing the likelihood of upper back and neck injury or injury aggravation.
Figure 2 – Poor sitting posture without using a lumbar support
Reducing the degree of forward bending of the lower back during sitting is vital to minimise stress on the entire spine and hasten recovery from injury. The McKenzie ‘D’ shaped lumbar support which helps to maintains the natural lumbar lordosis (inward curvature of the lower back) has been designed for this purpose and is a must have item for patients who suffer from lower back pain (especially considering the long duration we often sit – sometimes in excess of 8 hours / day).
The strap feature of this lumbar roll ensures the lumbar support remains in the correct position as it hugs the chair or seat. Lightweight, portable, easy to use, the Original McKenzie™ SlimLine Lumbar Roll is ideal for the prevention and management of lower back pain, upper back pain and neck pain – whether in the car, office or at home.
Return Policy Download the Credit Request Form
PhysioAdvisor offers you the option to return an item for a refund or a swap for size. The rules for returning an item are as follows and must be strictly
- Must not be used - only tried on for size (for example - at a shoe store, you cannot buy a pair of shoes and walk in them for a day and then take them back - the same rule applies for our goods! We will NOT refund for used items!). Items must not be soiled worn or damaged. Braces etc which have been tried on for size will be fine, however, wearing an item even for short periods of time may result in stains, marks, damages and occasionally smells which will render the item unfit for re-sale. Items which do not meet the above criteria may be ineligible for a refund.
- You must also return the packaging as well as the item itself. Pack the packaging with care. It is needed for reselling. All original packaging must be returned undamaged. When sending items back for return it is essential to ensure they are packaged so as not to damage any part of the item. Items returned with damaged packaging may incur penalties of up to 20% of the total cost of the product (before GST) not being refunded.
- You will pay the return postage.
- For swap for size, you must also pay the postage for the replacement items (ideally via a pre-paid post satchel - this will usually be a similar amount to the original shipping charge). Please include a pre-paid post satchel when returning your item. For larger items that will not fit in a pre-paid post satchel, credit card details will be required for the return postage fee. PhysioAdvisor will pay for postage only on items where our records show that the item has been picked, invoiced or despatched incorrectly. PhysioAdvisor will not refund the postage costs if our system shows the order to be picked, invoiced and despatched correctly.
