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.

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.
