Cushion in lumbar region reduces neurogenic pain

A cushion that could help prevent neurogenic pain and spasticity in people with spinal cord injuries

Description
A half-round ankle cushion is used as lumbar cushion when the user lies on his back in bed.

Authors comments
Lumbar cushion significantly reduces both neurogenic pain (burning in crotch) and spasticity.
The user came up with the idea when he placed his hand under his lower back and noticed that this had an effect on the pain and spasticity.
