THE BOPPY COMPANY CREATES UNIQUE BODY PILLOW WITH LOCAL PHYSICAL THERAPISTS
GOLDEN, Colo. (Aug. 13, 2013) – The Boppy Company, maker of the award-winning Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support Pillow, teamed with Physical Therapists Nancy Harrison and Rachel Carter from Functional Physical Therapy in Denver, Colo. to design a unique body pillow that provides total body support from head-to-toe.
“By talking to moms-to be, researching existing products, including our own, our team recognized a need to create a better product,” said Nancy Barley, CEO, The Boppy Company. “What was missing was a product that was flexible to meet moms’ needs at all stages of pregnancy and worked for moms of all shapes and sizes. Our product delivers on these important criteria.”
The newly-designed Boppy® Custom Fit Total Body Pillow was developed to provide customized support for the mom-to-be throughout her pregnancy. The flexible, three-piece design means moms-to-be can use the combination that works best for them. They can choose from: head/neck support, belly/back support, and hip/leg/ankle support. The extended length design provides support all the way down to the ankles, alleviating strain on hips. It is machine washable for easy care.
“We helped develop the Custom Fit Total Body Pillow to support the curves of the body while lying down,” said Nancy Harrison, Owner & Physical Therapist, Functional Physical Therapy, LLC. “When lying on one’s side on a flat bed, the curves don’t match the flatness. Filling in these differences helps keep the spine aligned and better alignment leads to more comfort. As a woman’s body changes during pregnancy, the Boppy Custom Fit Total Body Pillow provides flexible support to keep her comfortable so she can get the rest she needs. We recommend the pillow to many of our clients, pregnant or not!”
Additionally, another great benefit is that this product can be used long after baby is born. We’ve heard the praises of several dads that use the product for a restful night’s sleep as well, much to the chagrin of the moms who loved the pillow first.
