History of the Power Cushion
The Power Cushion was first introduced in the 1980s for use in professional football and Olympic training. Dr. John Scherger put together a development team made up of the best professionals in the most highly demanding sports to ensure the design and training procedures were refined. It took years to reach the final design that best matches the training needs of the musculoskeletal complex. Unlike the majority of products, the Power Cushion did not have a fast rush into the marketplace without undergoing important and extensive scientific trials.
By 2000, the Power Cushion was being used successfully in the Patriots' medial training room. The Power Cushion became one of the best-kept secrets in professional football, as players put the equipment to use in both the weight room and training room. Athletic trainer Ron O'Neil told Longevity Magazine, "Our guys really use the Power Cushion. It actually improves the posture of the player."
The Patriots used the Power Cushion up through their 2008 season. Marcus Paul, a former Patriots trainer, took his power training experience with him to the New York Giants when they won the Super Bowl, and then later on to the Dallas Cowboys. The only teams who are familiar with and have employed Scherger's training methods are the Patriots, Giants, Cowboys, and Jets. The Patriots and Cowboys appeared to dominate the other NFL teams physically, which helped support Scherger's mission of obtaining superior physicality with better global and segmental posture.
The Power Cushion has longevity: every person who was part of the original abdominal musculoskeletal training research team has continued to use the same kind of exercises and apply the same methods used in the developmental of this equipment.
