Ryan Dickerson, Alexander Walrath, Case Wayne, and Stephen Fox -- of Rylaxing LLC -- attended the National School Supply and Equipment Association’s 2012 Education Expo in Baltimore between Wednesday March 21 and Friday March 23. “The Ed Expo is the largest back-to-school ordering show, specifically geared toward the educational products retailer and full-line distributors.”

The event marked the beginning of the company’s expansion into the elementary educations market, which will be followed closely by a new Rylaxer product designed with early education students in mind.

At the expo, the team received a great deal of compliments both on the Rylaxer product itself and its numerous benefits to the education of elementary students, but also on the entrepreneurial spirit of young college students.

Marc Cooper, a fellow entrepreneur who brought a new product of his own to the expo, said “I love the entrepreneurial spirit and efforts these guys have made to get to this point.” And Tim Byrnes, Sales Manager of CPD Coating in Syracuse, said that he is sure the team is “well on their way to a great deal of future success.”

The Rylaxing team received more than just compliments, as many buyers and retail store owners expressed interest in the elementary school product. “The expo is a time to sell, but more so a time to show what your product can really do” said Ryan Dickerson, owner of Rylaxing LLC. “Now that we have support, we will continue to work hard in order to get this product off the ground, but given our success to this point, I know we can do it.”


The Rylaxer is the most comfortable back support product available anywhere. This simple addition to any room, creates a comfortable and healthy seat on your bed, on the floor, or anywhere else you need. The product was conceived of, designed by, and formed into an LLC by Syracuse University graduate student, Ryan Dickerson. The Rylaxer is made from durable, eco-friendly foam and is manufactured by OneUp Innovations in Atlanta, Georgia. The product comes in a 2-foot long, 4-foot long, and 6-foot long version and a new product specifically designed for elementary school students will soon be available. It has a removable cover which can be machine-washed or replaced, and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. To design and customize your Rylaxer today, visit www.rylaxer.com.
