bodyCushion products are handcrafted of the most appropriate, highest quality materials available in the world today.

Foam view of the bodyCushion


The vinyl used as a covering for the bodyCushion and its accessorizing products is the most durable, supple vinyl available. It is extremely abrasion and puncture-resistant and withstands repeated cleanings. This special vinyl assures excellent performance, strength, and durability in demanding medical and healthcare environments.


The complex foam construction of the bodyCushion is proprietary. Long-lasting, high-quality, non-toxic, odor-free foams provide positive elevation of support while affording optimal comfort. 


The thread used to sew the bodyCushion and related products is a thread often used for sailboat sails. It is strong and is highly resistant to abrasion, UV, bleach, mildew, and rot.

Face Support Base

The “Fresh Air” bodyCushion Face Support Base provides extremely durable support for the Face Crescent. Thermoplastic construction is known for its toughness. Approximately 15 degrees of flexion for the neck is established. Generous openings on all sides optimize airflow.
