Product Description & Benefits: The Knee Wedge (which includes a pillow cover) allows you to keep your legs in a comfortable position and avoid sore knees and getting your feet to fall asleep. These forms of discomfort typically occur when lying in bed for a prolonged period of time during recovery with your legs laying out straight in front of you. The knee wedge promotes better circulation to the legs and feet and gives your relief from tension. The knee wedge is a great addition to recovery from any cosmetic procedure. The knee wedge comes with a removable cover that is washable and made of blend fabric. The wedge is made in firm polyurethane foam.

For patients having a lower body procedure, the Knee Wedge also serves the purpose of keeping swollen areas (particularly the thigh area) comfortably elevated in an angle that is needed for reducing swelling. Following surgery, it is recommended to elevate affected swollen areas because this enables optimal blood circulation to all the vital areas and helps reduce the swelling.

Beyond using the knee wedge during your recovery, this product is a great addition to your everyday life and can be used to elevate the knees for comfort, pressure relief, and better blood circulation.

Other Comfort Pillows: To maximize your comfort during recovery, the Bed Wedge Pillow is a superior way to rest and sleep. The bed wedge provides proper alignment and keep your affected swollen areas (facial and/or body areas) comfortably elevated in a 45 degree angle that is optimal for reducing swelling. In addition to the bed wedge, many patients use a U-Shaped Pillow to have neck support and reduce the strain on the head and neck muscles while laying 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: Bend your knees and place them on the knee wedge in a position that is most comfortable for you. If you are having a lower body procedure, you may use the knee wedge to elevate the swollen areas (particularly the thigh area) during the initial phase of your recovery. It is recommended to stay elevated as long as swelling is considerable. The knee wedge can also be used to have a comfortable position while lying in bed.

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).

the knee lift pillow is much better
By erinhill, January 11, 2014

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? It's better than nothing, but the knee lift pillow is much better

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? very difficult to get the pillowcase back on

Review: I find this pillow to be not quite high enough to really prevent back pain. Also, it is very difficult to get the pillowcase back on this pillow after you've washed it - by that, I don't mean that it shrinks, I mean tha...(read more)
