I am an inventor. I have at least two patents that I know about: The Pillow with Cantilever Supports and the Ergonomic Seating Cushion. I also invented Ergosoft Ergonomics Software (an APP) based on OSHA's 2000 Federal Standard requiring all employers to have ergonomic workstations for their employees or face audits and fines, which was repealed by President Bush in March 2001.
