It’s called the Mobile Meditator, but that’s not this crescent-shaped travel cushion’s only mantra. It also works great as a backrest or pillow, with some ingenious features. The sueded inflatable 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 via your breath, as with most inflatable pillows. But 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, from basic black to purple, weighs less than a pound, and comes with a matching pouch.
Mobile Meditator cushion is $29.95; optional pump, $1.99, at www.mobilemeditator.com; 888-738-7293.
