Is your body naturally flat? Of course not!
The bodyCushion is a high-tech, high-quality body positioning system that allows a person to lie in any position without unnecessary pressure on soft tissue areas. Supporting the body on its bony structures - clavicles, ribs, sternum, pelvis - enables the body's soft structural components to relax, deeply.
The bodyCushion is unmatched in enabling this effect. When the body is relaxed, all types of therapy are easier and more effective. The positioning of the patient on the bodyCushion affords the practitioner complete access to body parts and muscle groups in ways not possible if the patient is lying on a flat table, even using pillows and rolled towels.
Patented, specific-density construction provides optimal support for reducing pressure and tension in patients’ bodies which makes the practitioner’s work easier and provides a way to get better results and more patient referrals.
With a contoured design created to maximize comfort and relaxation, the bodyCushion yields better, faster results in treating patients than a flat table. Tests have proven that back muscles actually tighten up when lying face-down on a flat surface.
The difference is all in the positioning
When lying prone on the bodyCushion body weight is distributed in a way that the patient has no distinct sense of pressure and the spine is unloaded, decompressed, and the associated musculature relaxed. The patient is not even subtly or unconsciously guarding, and can breathe easily with no restriction on the diaphragm. When the patient is in this idealized face down position, adjustments happen easily.
The bodyCushion adjusts to all body sizes and types and can also be used to provide support in the supine, side-lying, and seated positions.
