I have found this product to be an excellent way to elevate support my entire leg and foot when sleeping at night with a post-operative leg brace. One of the difficult parts of recovering from knee surgery (ACL reconstruction in my case), is having to sleep on my back with my leg elevated. It's important to uniformly support your entire leg AND to do so in such a way that doesn't put stress on your lower back. Using a combination of pillows and cushions wasn't working for me and I was developing lower back pain. This wedge solved my problem and now I comfortably sleep through the night. When my brace was still locked straight, I need a tiny amount of additional support below my knee. I achieved that by placing the height riser underneath the wedge at location approximately below my knee. The wedge I received was the memory-foam wedge which is smooth/flat on one side and contoured on the other side. For sleeping, I'm using the wedge with the flat side up.
