I received a Total Pillow and really like it. I like how many different ways I can form it to make myself comfortable. I like that I can use it laying down on my back or side, or can use it sitting up behind/to the side of my neck, back, or even under my arm to prop myself up.
Most people spend approximately one-third of their lives asleep on their pillow, however the new Total Pillow has uses for the two-thirds of time spent awake.
There are pillows for all types of issues but no one pillow that bridges all conditions, until now. The Total Pillow™ is for use overnight, on the couch, sitting at your desk, driving, while on a plane or train, in college dorms, or just while watching television. This donut-shaped pillow transforms in just seconds to more than five supportive shapes for customized relief. The patent pending locking technology enables the Total Pillow to support the neck, lower back, ankles and knees.
"Consumers own many different pillows for different applications, identifying the need for a multipurpose pillow solution." said Steve Heroux, CEO of Hampton Direct. "The Total Pillow transforms into five different shapes to answer a wide range of conditions."
The Total Pillow's ergonomic design allows your body to be cradled in support whether you're a side sleeper and like support between your knees and/or ankles or are a frequent traveler. It's also great for the businessperson, who needs lumbar support for the long periods of time spent seated.
I have decided to let Kennedy use a lot too. For her she can't sit up on her own and leans to her left side. The Total Pillow is great to use not only when she is laying down, but also to help keep her up while sitting. One of the best positions for using the Total Pillow with her is to bend it in a U shape...I place the top of the U against her neck and then then place her elbow into the bottom of the U. It really helps hold her upright and give her neck support at the same time.
I like how it holds its shape when you position it. It is fairly firm, so occassionally you have to rearrange it as I found that sometimes it hits on a pressure point. This is quickly fixed by just moving it slightly. It has a cool feel and is silky smooth on one side and a soft smooth material on the other. When laying on the couch I really dont even use any throw pillows anymore, I just grab for the Total Pillow. For myself I mostly like using it as the ring shape with the back of my head positioned in the center.
I have not tried it in the car, as I haven't had it long enough. I am not typically a fan of a lot of lumbar support, or having the neck pillows around my neck. If anything I would think I would probably prop it against the window and lean on it or use it for an armrest when travelling long distances. I also can not comment on its durability, as I have only had it for about a week. It is filled with the tiny beads, so I would recommend checking it often if you are allowing young children to use it, and to watch it if your animals may have bitten it, or clawed at it, for safety reasons.
