Some of specific position in rehabilitation procedure is prone position. The innovated prone pillow was created. The efficacy of innovated prone pillow was evaluated in a total of 50 patients who underwent for rehabilitation procedure in prone position such asdry needling, acupuncture or needle EMG examination at muscle around neck, shoulder, back and gluteal muscles from December 2017 to March 2018 with a single-blinded randomized controlled study. The patients were randomly assigned into two groups, 25 patients per each group. The first group had procedure with normal pillow before innovative prone pillow, second group had procedure with innovative prone pillow before normal pillow and evaluated between groups with Paired-Samples T-Test andindependent T-Test.The result revealed that the VAS and the efficacy were significantly more pronounced in innovated prone pillow group, VAS (p < 0.01), efficacy of pillow strength (p = 0.032), convenience (p = 0.015),comfort (p = 0.049), relax (p = 0.025) and safety (p = 0.017) more over, the innovative prone pillow can reduced electrical noisein electrophysiological parameter in the patient who underwent for needle EMG examination (p = 0.032). Thus, innovative prone pillow is an effective option for treatment with rehabilitation procedure in the patient with prone position
