PillowMed’s Mission

Our mission is to make the world’s most comfortable, affordable and ergonomically sound orthopedic pillows.


I have been sleeping on a PillowMed pillow for a while now and don’t know that I could sleep without it. I used to get headaches a lot and I don’t have them as often now. I am able to sleep more comfortable and have a hard time getting out of bed now because I just want to stay in it. Everyone should try this pillow!

The PillowMed Story

PillowMed was originally envisioned by Dr. Christian Hansen in 2007 and is now U.S. patented. As a chiropractic physician he wanted a pillow that would improve his patients sleep through proper positioning while maintaining maximum comfort. Eventually, his idea evolved into a desire to make the worlds most ergonomically sound orthopedic pillow. The orthopedic pillow was invented and designed to help his patients sleep in a way that is more beneficial to the human body than any other orthopedic pillow on the market. PillowMed’s unique design not only allows one to correctly sleep on their back and side, but also correctly on their stomach.

Dr. Hansen put his idea into play by hand making the first prototypes for himself and doctors to test. After using this prototype for several years, he and the testing doctors knew that this pillow would benefit not only patients, but millions around the world. Dr. Hansen teamed up with Kirt Forakis to help finalize the pillow design for patenting and start the process of creating PillowMed.
