The Sleepy Kneez Secret
Posted by Eileen Pelletier on August 06, 2018. 0 Comments
When I was developing a knee pillow to cushion my knees, and prevent knee pain from disturbing my sleep, I realized the 2 problems with all the pillows I had already tried. They were all uncomfortable and most didn't stay in place all night. The first problem could be solved by shaping my pillow so that it was small enough not to disturb my sleep, but large enough to totally cushion my knees. While I was testing out the different shapes, I realized that my back pain, from which I had suffered for years, was disappearing.
Therefore, my mission became how small a pillow could I make, so that it felt like nothing was there (Since I am not the best sleeper, it was imperative that I not feel the pillow during the night.), yet it could still cushion my knees, and align my hips, to prevent back pain. I did it! Found the perfect shape and size that was both small enough yet effective.
The next step, was how to keep it in place all night. The idea came to me one evening, while I was washing my face using a stretchy band with velcro on the end. I added a sleeve at the back of my knee pillow, to slide the band through. There it was. Comfy, unobtrusive and staying in place all night. Mission accomplished.
