THE PROBLEM:
You get up out of your seat, and all you feel from one foot is an uncomfortable tingling. Or you wake up in the middle of the night, and you can't move your arm at all. And then, as your body part "wakes up," the strange tingling intensifies.
Usually, you feel this familiar sensation after you've been putting pressure on part of your body -- sitting on a foot, sleeping on an arm, etc. When you apply this pressure for a prolonged period of time, you actually cut off communication from your brain to parts of your body. The pressure squeezes nerve pathways so that the nerves can't transmit electrochemical impulses properly. Nerve impulses carry sensation information from nerve endings in the body to the brain, as well as instructions from the brain to the parts of the body. When you interfere with this transfer by squeezing the nerve pathways, you don't have full feeling in that body part, and your brain has trouble telling the body-part what to do.

THE SOLUTION:
A Pillowwraps®, used with a standard pillow, greatly reduces pressure on the aforementioned body parts. They also elevate the body parts.

Problem this idea/invention addresses:
When you apply pressure for a prolonged period of time to arms,legs,feet ,etc ,you actually cut off communication from your brain to parts of your body. The pressure squeezes nerve pathways so that the nerves can't transmit electrochemical impulses properly. Nerve impulses carry sensation information from nerve endings in the body to the brain, as well as instructions from the brain to the parts of the body.
