The 2015 NATA 66th Clinical Symposia & AT Expo was held in St. Louis, Missouri on June 23rd-26th. Body Support Systems, Inc was in attendance in Booth# 1943, working on our mission to educate about the importance of orthopedic positioning. Over the course of just a few days, we performed over 500 bodyCushion™ demonstrations for athletic trainers from all over the country, successfully showing how the use of positioning equipment benefits athletes. Not only did we reach a new audience eager to find comfortable positioning solutions for their athletes, we also had the opportunity to reconnect with many existing bodyCushion™ users in Athletic Training.
Setting up Booth# 1943 at the 2015 NATA Expo.
One of the content bodyCushion™ users we spoke with was Jason, the Navy Seals ATC. Jason said that the bodyCushion™ does an amazing job "holding the Seals together" and that the guys "can't live without it." Jason further explained that the Seals take the bodyCushion™ home and sleep on it for recovery - a great example of how just lying on the bodyCushion™ can be a powerful therapeutic treatment for a wide range of physical issues.
In addition to demos and reconnecting with current bodyCushion™ users, we also offered one lucky attendee the chance to win a free bodyCushion™ by entering a random drawing when they stopped by our booth. On the last day of the show, Debra Fitzl, of Tria Orthopaedic Center, was chosen as the lucky winner. When asked how she thought the bodyCushion might benefit her work, Debra had this to say:
"I am very excited to try out and use the bodyCushion™. It will be very beneficial for patients. This product will greatly enhance the comfort of the patients and will allow me greater control in treatments especially when working on the spine. I have always noted in the past that those are the patients that had the hardest times getting comfortable and then being able to access the injury site. It will be a great addition to how I am able to treat patients in the future. I look forward to using the bodyCushion™ and learning more about how it will be beneficial to the patients and my ability to treat them."
Overall, the show was a great success! Not only did we achieve our mission to educate others, we learned a lot too: we listened to the needs of a wide variety of ATs. And we overwhelmingly heard that many ATs are looking for a comfortable face down solution for their athletes. The best part is, the bodyCushion™ offers a face down solution, and so much more.
From the athletic training room to the field, from pro sports teams to high school athletics, and regardless of whether the treatment is ice, heat, stim, or laser, all athletes will benefit from proper orthopedic positioning when receiving treatments.
Why bodyCushion™? Because... athletes benefit.
Over the years, we've found that those that do not understand the importance of orthopedic positioning have yet to experience the difference it can make. Most of our dedicated bodyCushion™ customers around the world had a major "Aha!" moment the first time they compared lying comfortably on the bodyCushion™ with lying prone on a flat treatment table.

During this type of eye surgery, the vitreous humor (or vitreous gel) is removed from the middle of the eye. Vitrectomy surgeries are often performed to treat macular holes and retina detachments, as well as other macula [...]
