Invention Day: The Pedt Saver, Part II

I first introduced the idea for the Pedt Saver 8 years ago when I had two cats that destroyed the circulation in my feet every night. Now I have zero cats on my feet because one died in 2017 and the other has been exiled to the basement each night because she's deaf and is too loud for a two-child household. Still, I was having sore feet issues from the natural cover weight at the corner of the bed, so I resurrected the idea.

I looked online and realized that this type of device already existed, but at price points over $100. You can charge a lot when you classify your device as a health-related device. Unwilling to spend that much money, I went the cheap route instead and got $10 worth of PVC pipes and fittings at Home Depot.

I diverged from the original plan slightly -- there is no adjustable setting because my feet do not expand and contract based on the position of the moon, and the bar goes straight up instead of crossing over the top of my feet.

I've used the Pedt Saver for three nights now and it's very pleasant -- like having a personal yurt for my extremities. I'll have to see if the air pocket gets too cold in the winter (especially since the device raises the covers off the edge, allowing some airflow) but I'm satisfied by my minimal ingenuity so far!
