Well made, but back support is ver hard and doesn't provide the right support for me. I've tried using pillows,but that doesn't work too well

I got this for my husband who has been very ill. He is supposed to sleep at a 30% incline. He found the leg support too confining. When I unzipped the leg support, he found the headrest too high and put a lot of pressure on his bottom. This system is now setting in our extra room! Not a good purchase. The return policy makes it impossible to return.
Customer Service Response: I am sorry the product did not work out for your husband. However we do have smaller wedges, like the folding wedge that is available in 7,10 and 12 inch heights. And we do have an extended return policy for even open items.

I bought the Back Max and Body Wedge Cushions. It was so hard I could not sleep on it. I had to unzip and only can use the Back Wedge to sit up with. Needs more neck support.

I purchased the standard set and It has certainly been worth the $149.00 so far. I am not a large person, 5'4", 120lbs so the standard set works fine for me but I could see how someone larger would want to opt for the big size. It is a bit awkward on the bed due to sharing covers with the hubby and I felt really tall next to him. I'm using it on the floor which I was already sleeping on due to the back issues leading me to seek the set out in the first place. I have never been able to sleep on my back until I purchased this very comfortable little body wedge. I'm very happy with my purchase and would certainly recommend this product. May order a couple of them for kiddos to lounge on in front of the TV.:)

I now own two sets because I NEVER want to be without them. One set is just for back up. So happy I found these. I have back issues and fibromyalgia. They give a very firm support which I need. But if that is not your preference you may not like them. As far as arm support, I use pain rollers to prop my arms on since I need to keep them handy anyway. Also inflatable sports balls work as arm rests when I prefer softer support for my arms. I prefer the narrow size because I constantly have to tailor the cushions to what I need and they are easy to maneuver. If I heard that this company were going out of business, I would probably buy ten sets. That's how much I like them.

I needed this while recovering from a surgery and it helped somewhat but where the cushions meet at the zipper, there is zero support. I thought there would be some kind of cushioning

Best Online Purchase I Have Made! I tried many times unsuccessfully to sleep on my back until I found this system. Since I purchased it a month ago, I have slept on it every night and plan to buy another for keeping at my second home. I like that the covers on each part of the system are removable, but I do not sleep directly on them. I cover the system just I would cover a mattress with a soft fitted sheet that is easily smoothed out and tucked around and under the whole thing. No more lower back aches trying to sleep on my back!

I just want to start out by saying that I do not work for this company or have any affiliation to them in any way. I have no reason to endorse anybody and I normally do not right a review on something unless I feel that it is truly called for to serve the product justice. All that being said here is my review of the Contour Back Max Pillow Wedge System with Built in Massage 28"" model. First my back story. I am a 34 year old man who is 6 2 and weights in at 250lbs. of which about 20% of that is body fat. I suffer from Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) since I was 15 and for those of you who do not know what that is I will explain. It is a type of rheumatoid arthritis that affects the spine of the low back and hips. It can skip around and affect other parts of the spine including the cervical. It can also be radial affecting the peripheral joints of the body. There is a whole range of other symptoms associated to this horrible disease and there are different levels of it that range from mild to severe. I am on the severe end of the spectrum so you name off anything that is associated with it and I have experienced that on some level. I am fortunate enough however to be blessed with a drug called Enbrel which does slow the progress of the disease and even makes me a fully functioning part of the workforce. I am able to work full time as a Computer Repair Technician. I can even go to the gym and workout to keep myself in shape. Everything in my sleeping habits had been great until about a year and a half ago or so when I suddenly noticed that I was losing circulation in my body. If I laid on my right side I would lose circulation in that side of my body and if I laid on my left the same. If I laid flat on my back I would lose circulation in my entire body including my head. As soon I would move to readjust the blood flow would just start rushing. I could even feel it rushing up into my head. Something is getting pinched off somewhere in my spine obviously and I dont know where but would ultimately like to get to the bottom of it. I also have been awaking every morning with intense pain right in the mid section of my back. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being bad the pain is a 10-12. It makes it to where I am so uncomfortable that I have no choice but to get up for the day after only about 5-7hrs of sleep. It literally feels as though somebody jerked a knot in my spine. I have discovered that if I sleep in a reclined position that I dont lose the circulation nearly as bad as I do sleeping in any other position and can actually sleep 8-10 hours if I choose to in that position. Also the pain isnt there as bad in the mid back like it normally is in that position. Now onto what I want to say about this wedge pillow system. First off I would like to say WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD!. From night one I have not awoke in the morning with that horrible pain in the middle of my spine. Despite of what others are saying about how comfortable it is I believe that it is very comfortable. My wife and kids love it too. My wife actually wants me to get her one now. I do still get a loss of circulation but not nearly as bad as when I sleep in the recliner or elsewhere. I am sleeping much better now thanks to this system and actually awake feeling well rested and can even go back to sleep and sleep in if I would like to. The poofy dark bags under my eyes are all but gone and I have only been sleeping on this thing for about 5 nights now. Here are the pros and cons that I see with this system: 1. Pros: Comfortable, sleep deeper and longer, awake feeling rejuvenated and reenergized. The 28"" model is definitely worth the extra cash because I couldnt see how I would on anything smaller and even if I did I would have no place to rest my arms. These also double as a way of trying new sexual positions with your partner. They give you some new and fun angles to work with. 2. Cons: It does take a little getting use to the ideal of sleeping on it. Also it is not really one size fits all when zippered together. My wife is 5 3"" and can easily use it all zipped together but I can not. I have to separate the top and mid sections about 3-4 inches so that the mid section properly cradles my legs. The built in massage is worthless. It just vibrates of course but you can barely feel it. Doesnt waste the 8 AA batteries on it. The neck pillow is comfortable but not really needed so I dont use it. I closing I would just like to say that they should take out the vibration function and keep the neck pillow and drop the price to 199.99. I am sure that they would sell a hell of a lot more of them if they did. Anyone who suffers from any type of back pain just needs to try this. It works for me and maybe it can for you too.

This is the greatest product. Helps my back and truly eliminates my acid reflux issues. It is great on the floor in front of the tv and on the bed. I also use the pieces separately.
