What is  Ulnar Cushion?

The ulnar nerve runs from the shoulder to the littlest finger. It is not very

well protected by muscle or bone at the elbow, where it runs next to the

medial epicondyle, and is prone to becoming impinged or entrapped if too

much pressure is put the ulnar nerve. Entrapment can cause pain in the

elbow, weakness in the grip, difficulty moving the fingers, and numbness or

a pins and needles sensation in the ring and littlest fingers. Severe

entrapment can lead to muscle lost in the hand and/or forearm and a claw-

like deformity of the ring and littlest finger.Sitting in chairs for extended

periods of time can place pressure on the ulnar nerves. Over time, this may

result in a wide range of painful and distracting conditions, including

numbness in the hands and fingers, mental distress, reduced sleeping, and

even the inability to conduct daily activities. Some people may try to

balance pillows on chair armrests, but this can be a struggle as the pillows

are prone to falling off the armrests.Ideally, an ulnar nerve armrest cushion

should provide a way to prevent excessive pressure from being placed on

the ulnar nerve when sitting for extended periods and, yet would operate

reliably and be manufactured at a modest expense. Thus, a need exists for a

reliable ulnar nerve armrest cushion to avoid the above-mentioned

problems. The present invention holds significant improvements and

serves as an easily moveable and usable ulnar nerve armrest cushion. 

The present invention provides a novel armrest cushion to protect the ulnar

nerve. The general purpose of the present invention, which will be

described subsequently in greater detail is to provide an ulnar cushion that

helps prevent damage to the ulnar nerves from prolonged sitting and

minimizes numbness of the hands and tingling of the fingertips as well as

pain, mental distress, and overall diminished health.

The ulnar cushion saves people time and frustration having to constantly

get up and move and shake their arm while allowing individuals to focus on

the tasks at hand, rather than their pain.

Ulnar Cushion supports the arm when seated for extended periods of time,

reducing stress on the ulnar nerves. The innovation product features a

cushion-like pad that wraps an armrest and secures in place with hook-and-

loop fastening material. This means of security allows users to use the pad

on chairs with armrests of varying sizes with ease. The cushion has a

groove in the center to hold the user’s arm and/or elbow in place. A
