Summer will be here in a few short months and when I think of my favorite season I picture myself lounging by the pool, resting outside with a good book while I watch my children play, and relaxing at the beach. The problem is, it can be very difficult to get comfortable in those situations especially because I have a bad back. The Sphinx Personal Lounger™ is designed for the sunbather, the reader, the meditator, the traveler and more as a way to get comfy wherever you are.
The problem: There are many people who would enjoy lying on their stomach to relax or read. However, typically, it is only something someone can do for a short period of time without experiencing stress on the joints or pain. This is due to the lack of proper support that causes undue stress on the neck, back, shoulders, and elbows. There are few products on the market that will allow a person to be able to relax, read, or sunbathe while lying in the prone position or versatile enough to also be used face up, as a chair, a table tray or as a kickboard for the water.
The solution: This is accomplished by providing a product line that has a dual experience in lounging both outdoors and in home through ergonomics and comfort. Castle&Bay™ has launched with its flagship product the patent-pending Sphinx Personal Lounger™ (Sphinx™), a multi-functional, versatile, easy to use, and portable product. The Sphinx™ won a Silver Medal at INPEX, America’s largest invention and new product show in the category of Innovation of Recreational Equipment. The product is chiropractor endorsed for ergonomics. The Sphinx™ is also made with extremely durable Flocked PVC for comfort and is weight and puncture tested to over 300lbs.
The Sphinx™ enhances any lounging experience. Because it weighs only 2 pounds, deflates to the size of a loaf of bread you can travel with it anywhere it goes right in your beach bag or into your suitcase. The Sphinx™ has a strap that holds the pages open for your book, or holds your Kindle. It has a cup holder and the media holder is also a small cooler for snacks or a storage place that can be used for your keys, sunglasses and cell phone.
Review: The versatility and portability of the lounger is really unique. I love that it comes in two pieces so you can use them together or separate. The top portion was a bit hard and I did find it a bit uncomfortable to lounge on my stomach, but I could relax easily when I was on my back. The bottom piece is great. I can use it to prop my iPad up or I can place it underneath my legs when I am lying down which really helps relieve some pressure from my lower back. I am also thrilled that it comes in a great pink color! I have a feeling I will be using it a lot once the weather turns and the fact that it turns into a pool flotation device is a real bonus as well! The cup holder on the triangular portion is a really nice touch as well. You definitely get multiple products in one with the Sphinx!
