    Rent?

    My wife has scoliosis with rods in her back.
    She says that gathered end hammocks cause the pins to poke around in her back making it very uncomfortable.

    I would like to rent or borrow a bridge hammock just long enough for her to try out before we buy one..
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I've got BER's Cloud bridge. You're welcome to borrow it for as long as you'd like. PM me your address.

    I have a travel Tempurpedic, it wights a ton. I used it when I slept on the ground, now with the right hammock I do not need it any more.

    I hope your wife finds a hammock that works for her. My back, shoulder and hip pain do not bother me with my favored hammock.

    I've had my back opened twice with a full fusion and hardware.

    Is she has had a fusion and is feeling pains with screw points (which is not normal) she should consider getting the hardware taken out. Best decision of my life. The fusion is the concrete with the hardware being the rebar. Once the concrete settles and cures you can remove the rebar. Same concept.

    Back to your question. I have a feeling she is going to get the same sensation with a bridge hammock. Hopefully not!! Good luck hanging.
    I'm doing it wrong....
