Bought this for my dad after shoulder surgery - even though very painful, he was able to use the reclining position and place a pillow under his arm to keep it elevated and more comfortable. Was a big help.

This has helped me so much, that I went on vacation to Florida to see my daughter & I ordered one for her house the day before I left, Thank you for getting it to me so quickly, I had to go only one night w/o it. I thank god that is as long as I had to wait. Because believe me, w/just one night was enough for me, I couldnt sleep & was hurting very bad when I woke, due to Fibromyalgia. Plus had 3 bulging disks, after finding this & ordering it. It help my back, plus my sleeping. Thank you again for getting it to me so quickly, as I don't think I could have made it a second night w.o it. So Thank You Contour for helping me, it was a blessing from God finding your website. Thank you again!

I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and right now I have to sleep sitting up. Slept in the recliner, but kept slipping. Slept on the bed with many pillows, but kept slipping. But now with the body wedge cushion set, I can sleep comfortably on my bed! I'm so glad when I ordered, that a wider selection was available. Thank you!

Very happy with the cushion set. It's a little big to store, but the cushions themselves are well made and well designed.

This was a product we had high hopes for. Maybe our expectations weren't realistic. The major objections are the size and the fabric without a cover. There is really not a good fit for either my wife, with EDS, at 5'7" or my 6'3" length. The sections need to be unzipped to move into position. Otherwise it seems like it's designed for a shorter person. The firmness is annoying but might settle down with time. Not comfortable. The fabric makes moving into position a challenge. It doesn't work easily to slide into position. Try to find some kind of cover to help. So comfort is marginal, size is not for us, and overall product quality seems good falls short in the final category for this much money. Problem is there are no alternative short of an adjustable bed system.
Customer Service Response:
Normally we advise a max height of 6'0 for the BackMax based on customer feedback in the past. With any type of foam there normally is a break in period of 2-3 days to adjust to your body.
As the BackMax does not work for you, you did note an adjustable bed system. However we do have another product that turns your bed into an adjustable bed system at a fraction of the cost. Check out our Mattress Genie Adjustable Bed Wedge, this may do the trick especially if both of you wish to be elevated.

Biought this and was skeptical - but it actually works quite well. The cushions are zipped together, so you can use them all (as in regular position) or unzip and use the back wedge portion as I do. It's like having all the cushions you'll ever need in one set.

The only comment I would add is that I added two cushions that would be for a wooden rocker, one with a high back and one to sit one. I position them to touch and it gives more back support and likely extends the life and also to the hips as it gives more cushion where there is not as much by design to zipper. I have positioned my memory foam pillow for my neck just above the other long cushion and it fits perfectly against the backboard. I also pushed the end of the cushion on the product as close as possible to give a better rest for my legs and low back pressure and just added a bed pillow against it and put a cloth sheet over it all, to reduce the heat from the foam. With the pillow extended to the end and the sheet over it, now my feet are not danging in space and I did not fit with the footrest up, as my height was too much and I was cramped. I am 5'7". I have had the best sleep that I can remember since getting this product and making minor adjustments. Others may find a towel rolled for the low back would serve the same purpose.

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. I was hesitant tonspend 250 bucks but honestly it was one of the best decisions I ever made, I used to wake up with back pain every morning and never slept more than 4 to 5 hours. I would have to get ice packs to numb things up until could start moving around to start my day. The first night I slept 9 hours! We had bought a new mattress and it did not help my back pain but this little gem did the trick! I love my new back max.

If you are concerned about the sizing of this product, know that standard chairs are 20" wide. If you fit on a chair, you will fit on the standard size bed wedge. My husband is 250 lbs. and it works well for him. Even better, one set helps both of us sit up to read in bed, as the two large pieces fit each of us. Very fast shipping, and the quality exceeds my expectations. I highly recommend it!
