    Been looking for a new travel pillow? Well, look no further, because the J-pillow has just been named the British Invention of the year. When a pillow is named the invention of the year, it is at least worth a look.

    The J-pillow, which received its name because of its 3D “J” shape, was designed for people who try and get a little shuteye on long-haul flights. At first glance, people can clearly see that it is just an adaption of the traditional neck pillow. However, it has a “hook” that comes out of it, called the J-hook. This part of the pillow comes out and goes under the chin to help keep the head from falling forward while people are sleeping sitting up.

    The pillow was designed by flight attendant Gemma Jensen. She came up with the idea after receiving feedback from frequent fliers. By using this feedback, and a little creativity, she was able to come up with the J-pillow.

    The medical community is even impressed with the pillow. Due to the fact that it keeps the head upright, it keeps the spine aligned. That is why so many medical professionals have already endorsed the product as a great orthopedic pillow.
