For most of us, sitting still is not always a comfortable experience. Offering a modern solution to this age-old dilemma, the Mountain Seat* zafu, the Tibetan Mountain Seat, and the Mountain Seat zabuton ease your zazen with viscoelastic foam, the same miracle product routinely used in NASA's space shuttle flights to counteract powerful G-forces experienced by the astronauts during take-off and re-entry. Its more common application is in therapeutic mattresses and pillows that provide whole-body conformance and much-deserved rest.
When sitting on the Mountain Seat's layer of viscoelastic foam, your weight is more evenly distributed, eliminating painful pressure points. As the foam flows and accommodates to the contours of your body, your spine, back, hip joints, knees, ankles, and even your skin are relieved of unnecessary stress. Unlike traditional cushion material, the foam is virtually indestructible, and has a structural memory that allows it to return to its original shape within minutes of each use.
