“I cannot be the only person that finds the seatbelt uncomfortable” . . . and this is how the “Owie Pillow” became a reality.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2010
What is the “Owie Pillow”? The “Owie Pillow” is used to relieve abdominal pressure caused by using a safety belt when driving. It can be used by any motorist but is especially helpful to pregnant women and those who may be suffering from abdominal injuries, wounds, recent surgery, or pain. When properly used, the pillow is placed between your abdomen and the seat belt. Additionally, this product can be used by almost anyone who simply wants a more comfortable ride. It may also be used in conjunction with seat belt usage on an aircraft.
How did the "Owie Pillow" evolve? Kristine Currier designed the pillow when she was pregnant with both of her children. During the first pregnancy, she experienced pressure/discomfort when driving; this led her to think about how to make herself more comfortable because she needed less pressure and more “room” for her rapidly expanding belly. During Kristine's second pregnancy, the same problem reoccurred only this time she was muttering to herself “I cannot be the only person that finds the seatbelt uncomfortable” . . . and this is how the “Owie Pillow” became a reality.
Are there any other uses for the “Owie Pillow”? Yes, definitely -- and here are a few:
Bypass Surgery (using the smaller pillow vertically while being transported)
Children who have had abdominal surgery or just find the seatbelt uncomfortable. (the 16” pillow is the appropriate size for children)
People who spend lengthy amounts of time in a car (Sales Reps, long commuters, frequent flyers,etc.)
Airplanes -- the pillow can be used with the seatbelt, or as lumbar support, or for taking a nap when placed upon your shoulder.
