QiPillow's health benefits

Canadian Science for Comfort - World's only one of a kind orthopedic solution to sooth your back, anywhere you sit. 

As a Human Spinal Biomechanics Researcher, I have been working with thousands of licensed back healthcare specialists across United States and Canada. In the past decade, my team and I have created an extensive line of home spinal health care solutions that helps people take care of the health of their entire spine from the neck to the lower back. However, QiPillow (pronounced as Chi-Pillow) is the one we are most proud of, because it will benefit the most people in the world.

Most of us have a sedentary life style, today. Unfortunately, our body is not built for sitting. And most chairs, sofas and car seats are not built to support our back. The problem with sitting is that it tends to destroy our healthy posutre and cause the deep stabilizing muscles in our lower back to tense and stiffen, both of which often lead to stiffness, pain and fatigue in our back.   

As a 100% Canadian innovation, QiPillow is here to rescue. Being world's only one of a kind orthopedic solution, QiPillow effectively helps you both improve your sitting posture and prevent your deep stabilizing muscles from tensing. 

In a third party consumer use study, 91% of participants were amazed about how well QiPillow helped them improve their sitting posture and comfort while relieving their back stiffness, pain and fatigue while sitting. (See below for details) 

Most scientifically engineered pillow

QiPillow seamlessly blend in any living environment

How does QiPillow work?

The secret is in its air-controlled ergonomic core. Powered by the same technology used in expensive back support of luxury cars, QiPillow also uses air as its supporting medium. Its air-controlled ergonomic core is great at maintaining its support, and is highly conforming and easily adjustable. As a result, QiPillow will never collapse under your body weight, and never lose its ergonomic support to your back. And like a Sleep Number Bed, QiPillow will adjust to your body, your seat and your comfort, instead of the other way round.

QiPillow maintains its support, while ordinary pillows lose 2/3 or more of their support under body weight (imagine that the forearm is your spine).

QiPillow maintains its support while ordinary pillow collapsed.

Who can benefit from QiPillow?

Anyone can benefit from QiPillow, whether your are an office worker, a taxi driver, a truck driver, a retired senior, or even a student doing a lot of home work. QiPillow helps you sooth and protect your back while seemlessly blending into your sitting environment, at home, work, school or in your car.

If you or someone you know have a challenged back or simply wish to improve sitting posture or comfort, this innovation is engineered for you. 

QiPillow perfectly works everywhere, in on airplanes

5. QiPillow Helps you reduce stiffness, pain and fatigue in the back – it has been said that 90% of chairs used in offices are not fit to what they are used for. One of the key problems is that people have a hard time to maintain a good sitting posture. Slouching increases the stress and tension in the back, and is the key cause for mechanical back pains, stiffness and fatigue due to prolonged sitting. QiPillow helps users prevent slouching, reduce stress and tension in the back. In a third party clinical study, after seven days of use, 91% of participants with back pain found that QiPillow helped them reduce stiffness, aches, pains or fatigue.

QiPillow helps you look better and feel younger – Poor posture makes a person look older, unhealthy and less confident. Slouching also reduce your vital capacity, compromise your breathing, your concentration and mental capacity. QiPillow helps users maintain a better posture, look better and feel younger.

Why did I create QiPillow?

For over a decade starting in 2002, my team and I have been working with thousands of back pain specialists around USA, Canada, UK, Australia and many other countries, and assisting their patients in drug-free back-pain relief while sitting. Our innovations can be characterized as effective, versatile, multifunctional, easy to use and low cost.

I love having a good rest sitting on my favorite sofa. However It was always difficult to maintain a proper posture. I couldn’t find a sofa pillow that could help because they all collapsed behind my back. I was tired of slouching when sitting on sofas. That’s when I started creating a solution to help people to improve their sitting posture and comfort while sitting. I hope that QiPillow will help make people's lives a little more comfortable.

R&D, Quality standard?

In order to satisfy the demands of the most discriminating doctors, we consistently followed the highest standard throughout the R&D process. The efficacy of QiPillow has been proven by third part consumer use study. The product quality has been rigorously tested by SGS – an internal quality assurance agency with its origin traces back to Switzerland in 1878.

What it is not for?

QiPillow is not designed as a sleeping pillow which you would use for regular sleep through out the night day in day out. Its health benefits are best utilized when used to spport the back. 

QiPillow is not a pain killer. It helps combat the cause for back pain, but not the pain itself. In particular, it helps you reduce and prevent slouching which is a key cause for back pain.

QiPillow is not designed for users without core stability or any acute medical conditions.

Where we are at?

We have been working on QiPillow for 3 years now. We have completed the design and a small production run. Product performance is clinically proven.  Product quality is rigorously tested tested by SGS.
