The Cushy

Hand held device that will attach to a standard size seatbelt to give comfort to healing mastectomy.

What's the big idea?

The idea is to design a hand held device that has seatbelt mest on top and a “memoryfoam” like material that can rest and comfort the chest for mastectomy patients. This device would have two clips to attach to any standard seatbelt and would able the patient to adjust to thier personal size without discomfort. The design that I have in mind is simple, and is in the process of being built.  Truth is, women are being diagnosed with breast cancer at younger ages. The seatbelt is not safe the healing site.

Describe the nearest player in your field.

Sheep Skin Seatbelt Sleeve

How are you different from that player?

My design is built in mind for women whom have had either a single or double mastectomy, reconstruction, augmentation or reduction. Life does not stop for these patients. They have to get out and drive eventually. Even when things are not completely healed. The seatbelt the “enemy” to the chest area

How does this idea scale into a big business?

Breast Cancer is here and no cure has been found yet. “The Cushy” can be a benefit in hospitals, pharmacutical companies, foundations, international and the general public. Not only can breast cancer patients benefit. Also, patients that have had reductions, augmentations and breast feeding mothers.

Why are you the one to run with this idea?

Due to my personal experience, I felt it was necessary. Waiting to drop off my kids at school only to cry all the way home from pain, changed my life and gave me purpose. I want all women to have a friend through this process. The Cushy can be a (BFF) “Breast Friend Forever”.

What is a $5,000 experiment you can do to move your idea forward?

This would allow me to patent and produce a prototype for production. Seeking the proper resources to help aid in my goal to make my product available to the public, in order to show why my product is necessary.
