About Perfect Anatomy, LLC
Perfect Anatomy, LLC was started by Craig Tingey, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in shoulder problems in a busy orthopedic practice in Las Vegas, Nevada. Over the years, Dr. Tingey has listened to many patients complain about their shoulder problems. One of the most common complaints is that their shoulder hurts at night, especially when lying on their side. With these complaints in mind, the idea for The Shoulder Pillow came to Dr. Tingey in the operating room. When a surgeon positions a patient on their side during surgery, a padded cushion known as an “axillary roll” is put under the patient’s side chest wall. This raises the chest wall off the table and decreases pressure on the shoulder. Starting with this simple idea, and with his patient’s complaints in mind, Dr. Tingey worked through multiple designs to produce a pillow for night time shoulder pain. His goal was to design a pillow that is comfortable, and supports the body and head while unloading the shoulder and allowing it to lie in an anatomic position. He revised and improved the pillow until his final design was awarded a United States patent. He gave prototypes of his new pillow to his patients that were suffering shoulder pain at night and received strong, positive feedback that encouraged him to take steps to manufacture the pillow so that others can benefit from this brilliant design.
