Maximize your results with the Bed Wedge Pillow: The Bed Wedge Pillow is specially designed with an incline design to keep your affected swollen areas comfortably elevated in an angle that is optimal for reducing swelling. In daily life, the wedge can be used everyday for breathing comfort, pressure relief, and for the treatment of swollen feet, acid reflux disease, and hiatal hernia.

Extra Cover For This Pillow: While this foam leg pillow already includes a pillow cover, you can get an extra Wedge Pillow Cover so you always have a freshly clean cover while the soiled one is being washed. Get a Wedge Pillow Cover.

Product Description & Benefits: Available in different heights, the Leg Wedge (with pillow cover) allows you to keep your legs in a comfortable position and avoid sore knees, achy legs, and getting your feet to fall asleep. This leg circulation wedge is a great addition to your everyday life and can be used to elevate the legs and knees for comfort and pressure relief, and provide relief of swelling from injury or surgery. The leg wedge promotes better circulation to the legs and feet and gives your relief from tension.

The leg wedge comes with a removable cover that is washable and made of blend fabric. The Leg Wedge pillow is made in firm polyurethane foam. Available in different sizes, 4", 6", 8" and 10".

If you are recovering from an injury or surgery, the leg wedge is a great addition to recovery. The Leg Wedge also serves the purpose of keeping swollen areas (particularly the legs, thighs, calves, and feet 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.

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 legs and place them on the leg wedge in a position that is most comfortable for you. If you are having a lower body procedure, you may use the leg wedge to elevate the swollen areas (particularly the legs, thighs, calves, and feet area) during the initial phase of your recovery. It is recommended to stay elevated as long as swelling is considerable. The leg 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).

Really helped
By terran.daily@gmail.com, January 26, 2013

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Firm enough to float heels, but not too firm.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? Not water proof--foam can become urine soaked.

Review: My 93 year old father had significant skin breakdown on his heel, and it is almost completely gone since he started sleeping with the wedge 3 weeks ago. Only downside is that it is not water proof and became urine soake...(read more)

The "Wedge" Works!!
By Kam2012, February 6, 2012

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Takes pressure off my lower back.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? Stays in place, doesn't slide around.

Review: At first I thought the 4" wedge would be too small inasmuch as I thought I ordered a 6" wedge but was pleasantly surprised that it worked out just right.

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Choice of heights

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? wish is was slightly firmer in support

Review: I like that it had a choice of heights, many others don't give that choice. The one I picked was just perfect for me both for comfort for my knees and my lower back.

Not Long Enough/Too Firm
By Lynnback, May 27, 2008

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Comes with a nice cover. Relieves stress on lower back.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? Ankles hang over/no support for ankles. Too firm for my calves.

Review: I'm only 5'3" with foot and leg nerve damage. I purchased the 4-inch height size. A microsuede material or soft memory foam would make this product less firm offering more comfort and better support for my calves. Despit...(read more)

Excellent quality -- a bit "firm"
By bevymcmanus, May 18, 2007

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Releives water retention and swelling.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? A bit too high for me, but I was able to make adjustments.

Review: I ordered the 10" wedge, because I am a 5'8" woman and thought I'd need the additional height. Because the foam is so "firm," it is actually a bit high for me, but I adjusted it using a serrated knife, where I cut "well...(read more)

Great leg wedge!
By ndreadis, March 27, 2007

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Firm & wide - good quality covering.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? None really - some might want it even wider.

Review: I am a large person (tall & big) - and this is the first such product that was high, wide, and firm enough. (I bought the 10" high version.) Covering is of good quality and feel.

Worth the money!!!!

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? See above.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? For some, the height might take getting used to.

Review: This pillow is a life saver! It absolutely relieves the pressure from the back, reduces leg edema, helps to relax leg spasms and helps you maintain a semi-upright position if this is something necessary to do for other ...(read more)

By daughter2lv, February 21, 2007

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Would have been in misery without it.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? Maybe a bit expensive but worth it!

Review: I bought this along with a triangle shaped pillow that props up your head. I needed this for three weeks after my surgery. I couldn't sleep without it and it gave me more options than just sitting in a recliner. I plan t...(read more)
