For the Ball Game ...or Travel...feel refreshed.
Kicked up a notch ... Featuring Champion Seating’s “NEW ERA”
Memory Foam which is both, Anti-Microbial & Anti-Bacterial, and quickly reduces pressure points and relieves body stress.
NEW...18" square cushion easily fits in "carry on" luggage, or goes to the stadium. The Visco Elastic Cushion adapts to the body temperature of the user, perfectly conforms to the body, providing customized comfort for sitting on hard surfaces, or enhancing regular foam seats. This technology, the same we use in our seating, effectively redistributes body weight, thereby reducing skin pressures by 50 percent, which greatly improves circulation. Ideal for airline flights, you'll arrive feeling better due to increased blood circulation, and for international flights this cushion is a must-have!
The "Ride-the-Pine" cushion may prevent seated pressure causing Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) which may be associated with any form of long distance travel whether by air, car, coach or train but it is often referred to as "economy class syndrome" when it occurs to airline passengers.
The "Ride-the-Pine" cushion is nearly indestructible and will perform perfectly and consistently for years. It never breaks down or compresses, and always returns to its original shape. With regular foam, resiliency is lost after a few years of use.
Compare our cushion to Tempurpedic® and WonderFoam® and you'll find that ours is a Home-Run. No larger than a newspaper, or a couple of magazines, and you'll arrive at you desination felling better, and this travel cushion is far less than any memory foam cushion as compared to Tempur-Pedic®, Backsavers®, Relax the Back Stores®, Brookstone®, and Sharper Image®. Buying direct from the manufacturer saves you the middleman's mark-up.
Sit better, and feel refreshed, having a quality ergonomic cushion made with the same visco elastic foam as our nationally known competitors.

What is deep vein thrombosis?
Deep vein thrombosis is a condition where a thrombus or blood clot forms within a deep vein, typically one in the thigh or the calf. This blood clot can either partially or completely block the flow of blood in the vein. In extreme cases, this clot can break free from a vein wall and travel to the lung and block an artery. This pulmonary embolism(PE) could lead to serious injury or death. In pregnant women, this kind of embolism could lodge in the placenta and put the fetus at risk.
How do you get deep vein thrombosis?
Deep vein thrombosis is a problem that is caused by pooling of blood in the vein, which triggers blood-clotting mechanisms. Anyone who sits for long periods of time in a vehicle, movie theater, or even an office desk may develop clumps of clotted blood in the legs. Airline passengers in coach seating are particularly vulnerable because of the sometimes dense seating and limited ability to get up and move around. However, even passengers in business and first class are at risk.
How serious is DVT?
One in every hundred people who develop DVT dies. Treatment of DVT and PE is with blood-thinning drugs or anticoagulants, including warfarin and heparin. Aspirin in low doses also acts as a blood thinning drug and is used to prevent clotting conditions in the arteries like coronary thrombosis. Its benefit in preventing DVT is debatable. DVT combined with PE or other blood clots is often referred to as Venous Thrombo-Embolism or VTE.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms may vary widely. A mild case may have no symptoms.
When symptoms do occur, they could include the following:
Tenderness and redness in the affected area
Pain and swelling in areas drained by the vein where the blood clot is located
Rapid heart beat
Sudden, unexplained cough
Joint pain and soreness
Am I at risk?
If you have at least one of the following conditions, you may be at higher risk:
Over the age of 60
Recent accident, surgery, or other trauma
Coronary artery disease
Use of oral contraceptives
Family history of clotting problems
What can I do about it?
There are several things that you can do to reduce your risk:
Wear clothing that may help your circulation
Wear graduated compression stockings (TEDs). This is important for travelers who have other risk factors for DVT
Get up and move around at least once an hour
If you have to remain seated, flex your ankles and move your feet in a circular motion.
Drink plenty of water before and during the flight
Limit your in-flight alcohol consumption
Don't cross your legs or ankles
Seek medical advice before traveling if you feel that you may be at risk
Some doctors recommend taking aspirin before traveling because of its blood thinning effects. But it is not suitable for children and can have side effects. If in doubt, seek advice from a pharmacist or doctor.
People who have one or more of the risk factors mentioned earlier should seek medical advice before traveling.
Anyone who develops swelling or pain in the leg, or breathing problems after traveling should seek medical advice urgently.
