Articles about sitting for too long:
Most people find the recovery period torturous, much more so than the surgery itself and cannot imagine trying to sit still, trapped on a massage chair all day long for up to two weeks!
Designed to help my wife PHYSICALLY and EMOTIONALLYmake it through her required days of face-down recovery, the FaceDownWalker® RELIEVES THE NECK PAIN AND SAVES YOU FROM BEING LOCKED IN ONE POSITION while sitting on a massage chair.
The FaceDownWalker® gives you the option to get up every so often and move around, helping to make your 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 massage chair and/or on a face-down pillow headrest.
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. 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 and to keep your emotional sense of physical control.
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 massage chair, she was overwhelmed by the pain in her neck & back and the pain from sitting on the hard pads of the massage chair all day. Her face also became painfully tender from being on the doughnut-shaped headrest of the massage chair and face-down pillow. Claustrophobia, severe anxiety and depression set in from being "locked" in one position all day long. There was a genuine concern about developing blood clots in her legs because she had had a pulmonary embolism a few years earlier, leading to a collapsed lung resulting in a three-day stay in the hospital.
My response to help her in this situation was to design the patented FaceDownWalker® mobile head 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 doughnut-shaped head pads on massage chairs and face-down pillows, the forehead sling relaxes the muscles in your neck, face, chin and back even if you are not interested in walking around.
THIS IS YOUR EYESIGHT!
You want to stay compliant with your doctors' orders to keep your head in the face-down position to achieve the best possible outcome.

It is recommended that you also use a massage chair, (also known as a vitrectomy chair or vitrectomy recovery chair) and doughnut-shaped pillow on the bed if needed so that you may alternate and change positions between devices over the course of the day.
*You may receive a different style of forehead pad than what is pictured on this site
*This device is NOT designed to hold or lock your head in the face-down position forcibly. Lower your forehead onto the pad and relax your muscles. The "U" shape of the strap will help keep your head in the proper face-down position.
