So there I am with a hospital gown on closed in the front and an IV set up in my left arm and can’t even imagine how I am meant to get on this thing. It is lower than in the pictures but it is still pretty strange. How did it work? Scramble onto the short semi-flat section on the knees, open the gown to expose the breasts and then lie down and put your face down in the support. Oh, and make sure your breasts are hanging down into the two little holes. Yes folks, that is what I said, breasts in the holes. The raise your arms into a Superman pose and stay there for 30 minutes.

Technology is amazing, but not necessarily dignified!
