The Original bodyCushion was invented in Ashland, Oregon by Tom Owens in 1986. It is a full-body orthopedic positioning device that optimizes the unloading of the body in a variety of recumbent positions and serves to provide seated prone support as well.
Made in Ashland, Oregon of the highest quality materials, the Original bodyCushion is now used in more than 100 countries, establishing itself as a world-class positioning device for medicine and the healing arts.
The Original bodyCushion is scientifically proven. EMG (Electromyography) studies indicate dramatic reductions in muscle tension when subjects are positioned on the Original bodyCushion. Treatment outcomes are optimized.
What makes the Original bodyCushion unique is an anatomically designed, high-tech construction that supports principally on bony structures in ways that unload the body, maximize comfort, improve access and provide more control over the treatment.
The Original bodyCushion is fully adjustable and supports in prone, supine, lateral recumbent, as well as prone seated.
A variety of accessorizing tools for the Original bodyCushion are made available in order to optimize the positioning for a variety of unusual positioning challenges, including very large frames, large, lactating, or augmented breasts, and prone relief for late-term pregnancy.
Whether used in Hospitals for injury or surgery recovery, prevention of decubitus ulcers, improving patient hemodynamics and prone intubation, or for Pain Management, Rehabilitation, Physical Therapy, Sports Medicine, Athletic Training, Vitrectomy Eye Surgery recovery, or at Spas for massage and relaxation, the Original bodyCushion is the “go to” tool.
The Original bodyCushion is also widely used for acupuncture, chiropractic, as well as a variety of massage approaches including Shiatsu, Rolfing, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral, and numerous other forms of bodywork. Many users find restful, relief lying on the Original bodyCushion at home.
