RELIEF FROM ENDURING
THE GRUELING 24/7 NECK PAIN
OF HOLDING YOUR HEAD IN THE FACE-DOWN POSITION.
OVER 170 SATISFIED USERS.
Do you get even the slightest touch of claustrophobia when closed into one position for any length of time? Most people find the recovery period torturous, much more so than the surgery itself and cannot imagine trying to sit still in a massage chair for all of that time.
Designed to help my wife PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY make it through her required days of face-down recovery, the FaceDownWalker® TAKES AWAY THE NECK PAIN AND SAVES YOU FROM BEING TRAPPED in one position sitting on a vitrectomy recovery chair for several days. It helps make the recovery period as comfortable and bearable as possible.
Holding your head in the face-down position causes pain to build up in your neck, even when sitting in a vitrectomy chair also known as a massage chair and/or on a donut-shaped pillow head rest. The forehead pad on the FaceDownWalker® takes all of the weight of your head off of your neck. You may sit on most of your own kitchen chairs, hard-backed chairs, stools or ottomans for a virtually neck pain-free recovery period. If needed, add a cushion or two to a chair to make it more comfortable to sit on. Plus you can move about your home. Movement is so important to maintain proper blood flow to your muscles.
My wife underwent Vitrectomy surgery to repair a detached retina. For the recovery period of ten days, she was instructed to remain in a face-down position all day and night. After two days of following this regimen of sitting in a vitrectomy recovery chair she was overwhelmed by the pain in her neck & back, pain from sitting on the pads of the massage chair all day as well as her face hurting from being on the donut head rest of the vitrectomy recovery chair and bed pillow. Claustrophobia and depression set in. There was a real concern about developing blood clots in her legs because she had had a pulmonary embolism a few years earlier which led to a collapsed lung resulting in a three-day stay in the hospital.
My response to help her in this situation was designing the patented FaceDownWalker® mobile support system.
Your head can weigh up to 11 pounds. Your neck is not designed to hold it in the face-down position for any significant length of time. The FaceDownWalker® relieves the strain on your neck and the rest of your upper body muscles. The forehead sling of the FaceDownWalker® comfortably transfers the weight of your head to the backpack. There is no pressure on your cheek muscles or chin. Unlike most donut-shaped head pads on massage chairs, the forehead sling relaxes the muscles in your neck, chin and back even if you are not interested in walking around.
THIS IS YOUR EYESIGHT!
