1966 Mortician’s Block, C.W. Rector  U.S. patent no. 3,234,623

Alluding to a U.S. patent for a “device by the use of which the mortician can maintain limp body elements of a corpse–head, arms, and feet, in particular–in a desired attitude,” The Infinite Pillow is constructed of a succession of supportive pods with alternating valleys. These pods can be fabricated to any desired length, and can be arranged in a plurality of positions for the maximum of corporeal comfort.
