The same material used in medical applications. I can drive pretty much all day sitting on one.

The beaded seat cover is great if your legs/butt fall asleep or your muscles start to ache on long drives. The beads roll as you sit and help keep the circulation flowing.

If you are just getting sore at pressure points, then a cushion may work better.


We had them when we had a early '80's Caddy Sedan DeVille that I think had leather. We liked them and did just as stated above. Car ok till my Uncle showed up w/ his '85 Town Car. Got rid of the Caddy for a '86 TC w/ cloth. Loved that car, but never used the beads again.

This thread takes the cake...Please don't anyone ask about hemorrhoid donuts though!

Pro tip for y'all. Get on Amazon and you can buy a new seat cushion to replace that old wore out seat in your whatever you're driving for about the same as the gupta beads or butt cushion.

Boy, the manufacturers put a lot into developing comfortable seats; possibly trucks even more than the average vehicle. Could just be your body telling you to stop more or quit sooner. I'm 77 and try not to travel more than 250-300 in our MH and not even that without breaks. It's an old Ford E-450 and I think the seats are pretty good.

They are still making them in Asia and it's beads of hard wood ideal to their tropical climate.

It has a massaging effects and conform to the shape of your body and yield to your preferred position on your seat.

That's probably the secret to its qualities.

You can ask a friend making trip to Asia to bring you one. Just double check that it's not made from one of those endangered tree species but specify hard wood, teak or acacia.

These days I use whatever foam/gel cushion that is currently on sale - don't look as nice as the beads but your arse will thank you.
