Not all positioners are alike

Innovated in 1986, the Original bodyCushion was the world’s first orthopedic body positioner.

For many years thereafter it was the only full body positioner.

In 2010, the first cheap imitations of the bodyCushion arrived in the USA from China. Since that time, others have followed. Imitators look similar to the Original bodyCushion but are lacking in quality and function.

The differences between the Original bodyCushion and imitators follows here:

Beware of toxicity

Much less expensive imitations come with potentially harmful impacts on health.

The low-quality foam of cheap imitations is chemically expanded which results in a long period of off-gassing. Immediate effects can be eye, nose and throat irritation, nausea, and headaches. These Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are carcinogenic, endocrine disruptors and can continue to produce adverse health effects for years.

The foam used to make the Original bodyCushion is premium, CO2-expanded foam with no chemical influence. There is no off-gassing, no odor. There are no adverse health effects.

Original bodyCushion foam performs over time.

Cheap chemically expanded foams break down, failing over even short periods.

The premium “Lifetime Foam” of the bodyCushion is very long-lived. The resilience of this foam has been proven to last more than 30 years and carries a 10-year warranty.

The bodyCushion is built to last

All of the materials used to craft the Original bodyCushion are the highest quality available.

How do you know its an authentic Original bodyCushion?

Check the label! The brand is “bodyCushion,” one word, lower case ‘b,” capital “C” Imitators often call their product “body cushion.”

The Original bodyCushion optimizes positioning in 4 different body positions; prone, supine, lateral recumbent, and seated. The Original bodyCushion has an array of accessorizing options; Adjusters, Extenders, armRests, and breastProtector.

Typically, imitators are designed only for face down and do not optimize support of human anatomy.
