Cervical support pillow in French or German

Hi all,

I am looking for a cervical support pillow (sometimes called cervical traction pillow). I'd prefer to buy in Switzerland and wanted to search online. However, I'm not sure what this is called in French/German. Does anybody know and care to educate me?

Thanks in advance.

Perhaps a picture would help - of the pillow of course.

Re: Cervical support pillow in French or German

I thought crumbs, something must be hanging low but I have never heard of a pillow that would help, especially when Odile said hers is bamboo.

Given my gender, it better be....or that will be some awkward conversation.

Wife: "I thought you were buying a pillow for YOUR neck. But you bought ME a pillow for MY cervix!!?? What kind of websites are you visiting? What the #$@$ am I supposed to do with this thing?"

I just looked that up. Sounds interesting. However, I am trying to get the curve back into my neck to relieve a chronically flairing neck pain issue. Unfortunately, it looks like the bamboo is similar to memory foam so it wouldn't force my neck to recurve. And on that note, so I can avoid it, what would be the term for memory foam in French? Google translate goes with "mousse à mémoire"

Re: Cervical support pillow in French or German

Just to "support" the fact that Odile is a fine upstanding member of the community. Here is the product she has.

And the OP can order one for only CHF 52 delivered.

I need to wash my mind out with soap, I had to google it and to my utmost surprise it was not some kind of kinky sex toy.

Re: Cervical support pillow in French or German

Thanks- I bought mine at a village fair, and the second one for OH from France- as I couldn't find one on line in CH. I paid more than that in France!
The cover comes off for washing- take it everywhere with me if I can.

You can imagine the sight seeing tours in the Jura though .. and here is Odile showing us her bamboo cervical support.
Ping pong balls cost extra.

Re: Cervical support pillow in French or German

Now now - ah well, here goes, might as well. Because of my very bad knee, I got another bamboo pillow, without the cervical hollow 'niche' ....

to put between my knees in bed. Now you get the picture

I got my memory foam one from Ikea. Love it.

For the record, men who have surgery in their nether regions usually have their family jewels placed on a cushion upon their return from theatres, because of swelling.

In Suisse Romande, the term memory foam is used in French, rather than translating it.
