More About our New Inflatable BackMax
The Inflatable BackMax is a multi-functional support system that allows users to use all 3 wedges as one, or as separate cushions for targeted support. Use the cushions together for full body support, or separately as a backrest, knee wedge or foot support. Each cushion inflates to your own custom level of support with the included air pump, and deflates just as easily. Once deflated, each cushion is compact and the perfect size for travel.
The Inflatable BackMax Cushion Set offers all the key benefits of our foam cushion BackMax Body Wedges, but comes in a compact size perfect for storage and travel.
When laying on your stomach, the Contour Inflatable BackMax relieves strain and tension on the lower back by allowing the spine to maintain its natural curve and back muscles are able to relax.
By elevating your legs, it's been noted that it helps aid circulation. Great for those suffering from edema or other forms of swelling.
The foot rest is another great way to elevate your legs and feet which helps improve support for any swollen feet.
When using the Inflatable BackMax's’ backrest in the upright position, it offers ultimate support for reading, watching TV, eating, nursing, plus much more.
As many doctors have noted that many patients suffer at least once a month from gastrointestinal problems. The Inflatable BackMax allows sufferers to rest and relax more comfortably by gently elevating them as opposed to someone laying flat.
If you opt for full body support, and use all 3 wedges and lay in the standard position, you are then placing your body in the 120 degree angle position. Many refer to this position as the “zero- stress” or “zero-gravity” position. This positions helps relieve tension and lower back strain allowing the muscles and ligaments to relax.
NASA Astronauts are seated in the same zero-gravity position during liftoff to help minimize the pressure on their body.

I love this product. The removal of my esophagus means I cannot lie flat on my back. I have a wedge my daughter bought for me but I kept on sliding down the wedge. The Inflatable BackMax Cushion works much better than the couch cushions I improvised. The first two Inflatable BackMax Cushion had a leak in the middle section (I only weigh 147 lbs. and they were replaced under warrantee by Amazon) I am going to purchase a foam version for home and use the inflatable for traveling.

I have been blest with Sleep Apnea so I've been using a CPAP machine, for a long time. The CPAP caused a permanent sore throat due to it's pumping air down my throat all night, and I had a Humidifier on it. I'm happy to report that I'm no longer using the CPAP. and my sore throat has gone away, thanks to the Back Max Body Wedge.
I learned, while in the hospital for surgery, that I did not need the CPAP, as long as I elevated my upper torso, and set my legs up for correct circulation, using their adjustable hospital bed.
When I got home I was going to get one of those beds. The cost stopped that pursuit. So I tried various combinations of cushions and wedges, to try to achieve the same effect. But these arrangements had one big problem - they changed their configurations throughout the night, causing me to constantly awake and reposition them. The only one that didn't shift was the Back Max Body Wedge.
This unit sets me in the correct position - and holds it throughout the night. As a result, I'm getting a full night's sleep without interruptions. It's the most comfortable arrangement I've had in the past 30, or so, years.
Good job Contour Living!
I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyable sleep! (so's my wife - who no longer has to listen to all that racket the CPAP made)
Update: Before you discard your CPAP, see your prescribing physician and do a BOL (Blood Oxygen Level) test. I did, and we found out that I was not getting the optimum level, which is why the CPAP was originally prescribed. So, I'm back on the CPAP, aftermaking some adjustments to it to relieve the sore throat (my wife's not happy, but....).
Thanks to the Back Max, I'mstill getting a much more comfortable sleep, and that persistent minor backache that I used to get every morning, is gone!

My first BackMax was the one made from support foam. The first night I used it was the first time I slept through the night in a year due to back pain. The only problem with this version is that it was so slender their was no room for your arms. I had to use pillows on both sides to support my arms as the height of the pillow would leave your arms just hanging. It is also a pain to pack and takes up a great deal of room to transport.
This second one was the inflatable version which is wonderful for travel. The fact that it folds up to about 12 x 17 x 7 inches makes it easy to put in a suitcase or even mail ahead of time to your destiny. It can be inflated to the firmness you desire. It is wider than the first version and your arms fit on it without the need of extra pillows on the side. I will keep both of them but will definitely take the inflatable one for travel. If it holds up as well as expected, I will be selling the original.

My husband has a bad back, sleeps in an adjustable bed at home. Whenever we went away on vacation, I always tried to find something with a recliner so he could sleep (he can't lay flat). This is wonderful, lets him sleep and is portable. Perfect. So glad I find it.

I have had back problems all my adult life. Five years ago I had to have spinal surgery which left me unable to lay down without pain. I researched for anything that would help me. The BackMax Body Wedge did just that. I can now rest my back during the day and sleep without pain all night long. It puts you in the ultimate Zero Gravity position, so there are no pressure points and it positions your spine the way nature intended. It truly changed my life!! Thank you so much for this wonderful product.

I have a variety of things that require positioning myself in order to sleep - respiratory issues (need head raised); bad arthritis in one of my hips; lower back pain. I was sleeping on a recliner but could no longer do so. I was in the hospital but even the hospital beds couldn't prevent the lower back pain. When I saw this product, I realized it was the same shape as a recliner and that it would support my lower back, keep my head raised and reduce hip pain. I add another pillow under my hip. The first night I used this product, I slept wonderfully through the night. And have done so ever since. The only issue I have is that it is a bit hard to get into but, obviously, I manage. In short, I'm thrilled with this purchase. It provides superb support. I highly recommend!

I just had shoulder surgery and needed something to elevate my upper body per doctors recommendations, was going to purchase a wedge pillow, but decided on this due to it versatility and firmness adjustment. So far, so good, I'm using it in the "Zero Gravity" setup like the picture shows and I must say it's very comfortable. When I'm done my wife want to use it to relieve her sciatic pain and acid reflux.

My Partner will soon be 88 and he fell 3 times over the past 4 months. Shattered his elbow on his first fall and broke his hip on his last fall. Trying to keep him propped up in bed has been a disaster. Now we just get him on the Contour wedge system and he is there to stay. No more sliding down and having to be pulled back up what seemed like every few minutes. Well worth the price for his comfort and my back....

This is a great and easy product to use. My husband recently had abdomen surgery with a 5 inch incision. Because he was sore and stiff, it was hard for him to get up and down. Eventually is caused his incision to start draining again because of the effort. We varied the air levels to see if would make any difference. It worked better for him with less air (more comfortable too) but in the end, we will have to wait until his incision is healed better. Typically my husband is in pretty good shape, not an athlete, but active. We were excited to get this product because it was so much like a hospital bed without the mechanics. And for the most part it is, but if you've had stomach surgery, be careful. I would recommend this product with with that warning.
The product is made well, easy instructions, and is definitely sturdy. When he is not using it, I will probably get some use out of it myself. Note: we got the 28" style and one a king bed it took up half. On a queen or smaller, it would be tight for another person to be in bed. Hope this helps!

My son has both the Original Backmax Body Wedge and now the inflatable version. He, unfortunately, has an auto-immune disease (AS) that doesn't allow him to lay flat. Before we found this product, it was almost impossible for him to travel - he had to sleep at home or at college where we had a specialized bed that folds the head and foot of the bed into a "V" shape. We couldn't go on a family vacation, nor could he visit remote friends, go to the beach overnight, stay with his brother in NYC, etc. These products have really been a God send and have contributed greatly to his mental state. One suggestion for making your product even better is to provide "expansion strips" of variable lengths to allow more space between the two large wedges. They could be zipped into place by attaching to the existing zipper. We have had both of ours altered by a seamstress to allow a total distance of 9 inches between the end of the back wedge and the beginning of the leg wedge for him to be comfortable. BTW, my son is only 5' 8". I truly think others would benefit from this customization capability as well. Thanks again for a great product!
