Product Description & Benefits:
Shown in: 25" x 24" x 12"

Degrees of incline:
25" x 24" x 7" - 16 degrees
25" x 24" x 10" - 23 degrees
25" x 24" x 12" - 27 degrees

Available in different sizes and colors, The Bed Wedge Pillow (includes a pillow cover) is made in firm polyurethane foam and is a great addition to your everyday life for reading, relaxing or watching TV and can be used to elevate the head and body for breathing comfort and pressure relief, to elevate the body or feet for relief of swelling from injury or surgery, to help with acid reflux disease and acid indigestion, promote better blood circulation, and for the treatment of hiatal hernia. You can also use the bed wedge to avoid sleeping and putting pressure on the face, which may contribute to facial wrinkling in the long-run.

Moreover, if you are recovering from an injury or surgery, this wedge pillow is specially designed with an incline design to provide proper alignment and keep your affected swollen areas (facial and/or body areas) comfortably elevated in an angle that is optimal for reducing swelling. Following surgery, it is recommended to be perpetually elevated in an approximate 30-45 degree position from the bed because this enables optimal blood circulation to all the vital healing areas and helps reduce the swelling.

This cream terry-colored wedge pillow is specially designed with an incline design to provide proper alignment and keep your affected swollen areas (facial and/or body areas) comfortably elevated in an angle that is optimal for reducing swelling. Following surgery, it is recommended to be perpetually elevated in an approximate 30-45 degree position from the bed because this enables optimal blood circulation to all the vital healing areas and helps reduce the swelling. The bed wedge comes with a cover that has a zipper closure for easy removing and washing.

Many patients find the bed wedge to be a superior and more comfortable elevation solution compared to putting oneself above pillows on a bed. A primary advantage of the bed wedge relative to pillows is that it is sturdy so that you can comfortably sleep without having to worry about slipping off as you would with pillows. Additionally, with the bed wedge you have no need to periodically rearrange your pillows if they shift around. Further, the bed wedge will not give rise to any tension and stress that you might feel from having empty spaces between your body and your pillows when you're propped up on your bed. Since the bed wedge can be moved around, you can use it to be in elevation wherever you are - whether you're in your bed, relaxing on a sofa, or on any other area of the house.

Other Comfort Pillows: To maximize your comfort during recovery, a good number of patients use a U-Shaped Pillow to have neck support and reduce the strain on the head and neck muscles while lying down on the bed wedge. The U-Shaped Pillow also helps to stabilize the neck and head while resting and sleeping during recovery.

Instructions For Use: You can place the bed wedge on top of your bed, sofa, or on any other surface that you wish to lay down on. You can use the wedge pillow in both its flat long position to lay down, or tall position to sit up. You may use the bed wedge to stay elevated during the initial phase of your recovery. It is recommended to stay elevated on the bed wedge as long as swelling is considerable in the affected areas.

Applicable Procedures: Body Lifts, Breast Augmentation, Breast Reduction, Breast Lift, Chemical Peel, Dermabrasion, Eyelid Surgery (Upper, Lower), Face lift, Laser Skin Resurfacing, Liposuction, Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty), Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), Breathing comfort, Swollen feet, Pressure relief, Post-Surgery Relief, Acid reflux disease, Acid indigestion, C-Section, Hiatal hernia.

It worked
By dancin86, October 13, 2009

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? A little too firm.

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Great idea

Review: This worked but it's a little too firm. It would make my back ache after awhile. It was great for my couch & watching tv but a little too high for the bed & sleeping. I wish I had bought one of the smaller ones.

Review: I am on heavy-duty chemo and it was suggested I get a wedge to help with discomfort and sleep problems. It has made a huge difference. I get a great night's sleep. I'm sure I'll keep using it when the chemo is over.
