Pillow Is Great For Recovery:: In addition to everyday use, the leg wedge is also ideal for individuals who need to lie in bed for a prolonged period of time due to injury or recovery from surgery. The leg wedge enables you to avoid getting achy legs and sore knees which typically occur when lying in bed for a prolonged period of time during recovery with your legs laying out straight in front of you. For individuals having a lower body procedure, 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.
