A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11858712B2) describes an inflatable cushion with a unique design that includes a first film ply and a second film ply sealed together to form an inflation region and a plurality of chambers. These chambers have openings to the inflation region that allow fluid flow for filling the chambers with fluid injected through a nozzle. The design features lines of alternating lands and slits that facilitate tearing through the plies to separate portions of the cushion, allowing for customization and flexibility in its use.

Furthermore, the patent details the construction of the inflatable cushion, highlighting the presence of lines of weakness that extend across the plies, forming a longitudinal strip of connected material excluding the inflation region. These lines of weakness are designed to be easily torn, allowing for the separation of chambers and the formation of interconnected fingers. The inflation region is free of these lines of weakness, ensuring its integrity during use. The innovative design of this inflatable cushion aims to provide a versatile and customizable solution for various applications requiring inflatable support or protection.
