    Does anyone know who sells a pillow, jell filled or something like that, that will absorb the hard bounces we get on a Z. Thanks, Ed

    If the suspension seat idea is out, you can find this pillow at Elder Beerman department store(or other similar store). It is made from viscoelastic material, and could be custom cut to fit the application you are describing. I bought one for my wife last fall, and she loves it. They are usually around $ 80-90, but you can get them on sale for 50% off most of the time.

    3M makes one. It's called the "desk job".

    Go to a medical supply store and ask them. They sell gel filled cushions for wheelchairs that might be what you're looking for.

    My experience on the Z from the constant "bumping" has more to do with my kidneys, than my back. A weighlifter's belt helped my situation.
