This Bed Wedge Pillow is also available in a Deluxe/Ultra-Comfort Memory Foam Wedge Pillow, which is 100% memory foam.

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 heights, the Memory Foam Bed Wedge Pillow (includes pillow cover) has an outer layer of a high quality, durable visco elastic memory foam material that conforms to the body's shape over a sturdy polyurethane foam core. The memory foam layer of the pillow responds to the body's temperature through the transfer of body heat, resulting in a pillow surface that is shaped like your body. This pillow features curves on the surface of the pillow to help better contour to the shape of your body. The pillow bed wedge comes with a cover that has a zipper closure for easy removing and washing.

Coming with a specially-designed incline design, this pillow 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 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 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.

Review: I am enjoying my bed wedge 100%. I ordered a 10" to be sure it was tall enough for my sleep apnea needs. I have been getting great sleep and good REM dreams. I would recommend this product to anyone else.

Not as high as pictured.
By jbi8, December 11, 2011

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Good support

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? a little too low

Review: It feels comfortable, but I wish it is the height as shown in the picture. I would say it's only 2/3 as tall. There is also a slight foamy smell(I think it's because it's new)

Wonderful
By CyndieJ, January 3, 2011

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Memory foam is firm, but comfortable.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? sometimes slide down off from the wedge during the night.

Review: I have never had a wedge pillow before, so I have nothing to compare it to. But I do know that it has been a great help in allowing me to sleep with GERD. It is is comfortable and firm enough, but yet soft, too.
