Product Description & Benefits: The Leg Separator (which includes a cover) allows you to keep your legs in a comfortable position and sleep on your side while providing a comfortable cushion between the bones of your knees. This cushion helps you avoid getting achy knees that can occur after sleeping or resting in bed for a prolonged period of time during recovery. In the case of facial cosmetic procedures (especially a facelift), the Leg Separator provides a solution for patients who are not permitted to side sleep and individuals who cannot sleep on their side because of ear soreness (due to incisions being made around the ears). The Leg Separator enables such a patient to sleep in a twisted position where the patient only turns the lower body (from the hips and below) on her/his side while keeping the upper body and back flat on the bed. This pillow comes with a cover.
Beyond using the Leg Separator during your recovery, this product is a great addition to your everyday life and can be used for pressure relief and to have a comfortable position while lying in bed.
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: You may place the leg separator between your legs in a position that is most comfortable for you. If you had incisions made in front and behind the ears (i.e. for face lift), the leg separator will enable you to sleep in a twisted position where you only turn your lower body (from the hips and below) on its side while keeping your upper body and back flat on the bed. Make sure to consult your doctor about when it is safe to return to side sleeping.
