  1. Great back relief and customer service 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 16th Feb 2017)

    The BackMax is wonderful. I have serious back problems and it is heavenly! The customer service is wonderful when I needed a replacement cover because my second BackMax came with a cover that is separated at the seam. I will be buying more from them.

  2. Excellent for herniated disc relief 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 8th Feb 2017)

    I've been suffering from a herniated L4/L5 disc, and this cushion set has provided significant relief. Namely it relieves pressure on the disc and helps manage pain and radicular nerve symptoms in my legs. I've spent much of the past several months laying down, which would have been less comfortable and therapeutic without the cushion set. It is very comfortable, even for sleeping. I am 5'11, and the cushion dimensions work well for me. It may be less of an optimal fit for those over 6 feet.

    I would give the set a 5-star review if it were not nearly impossible to remove the cushion cover without puncturing/destroying the actual cushion. I keep the cushion covered with a bed sheet to help keep it clean, as removing the cover is not a great option if you want to preserve the integrity of the cushion.

    Otherwise it is an excellent product that has helped improve quality of life and my healing process.

  3. Very nice product but didn't fit me 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 30th Jan 2017)

    I'm a full figured, 5'6" female and purchased the wide model so my arms would be supported too. Since a car accident over a year ago I haven't slept soundly due to neck, back and hip pain. I hoped this product would help/force me to sleep on my back instead of sleeping on my side and twisting my hips, shoulders & neck. Unfortunately after a few nights of testing I couldn't get a good "fit" with the pieces zipped together or separated. I believe it would have worked for me if the head/back wedge wasn't at such a steep incline.

    The quality and fabric of the product are very nice and I had absolutely no problem returning it. Fortunately, I was able to return the product right to the Contour Living office in Charlotte, NC and didn't have to pay return shipping which would have been pricey because the box is quite large.

  4. Back Max helps 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 2nd Aug 2016)

    Back Max seem to help with my sleep apnea. I do not wake up in the middle of the night with chest pain. I could not tolerate CPAP. IT also seems to help my acid reflux some of the time.
    I gave the product 4 stars for the following reasons. It is not as wide as I would like. The zippers are shorter than they should be for the top and bottom wedges. This makes it hard to reinstall after washing. I have dust mite allergies. I would like to be able to buy polypropylene covers for the wedges to put underneath the regular covers.
    Nevertheless, I have recommended this product to everyone who has similar issues like mind. Please let me know if you make wedge covers with longer zippers for the top and bottom wedges. I would like to buy them.

  5. It Works! 5 Star Review

    four nights.....NO PAIN
    Great product

  6. Great for Shoulder Surgery 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 19th Jul 2016)

    Had surgery on my shoulder (torn labrum). This was fantastic for me to get some well needed rest while my shoulder was recovering. There are three sizes, and I bought the middle size (I'm an average size guy). I am glad that I went with the next size up. The bonus of the inflatable mattress is that you can blow it up to the "firmness" that you desire, and it isn't big and bulky once you're done with it.

  7. everyone should have one! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 15th Jul 2016)

    This product is not just for infirm individuals needing support for specific health problems.

    Athletes needing rest and work-at-home adults who don't want to sit at a desk can use this product.

    We have two now!

    Just can't believe why this product isn't better known. Would love to be the product marketing manager for this!

  8. So happy to have it! 5 Star Review

    Just what we imagined, thanks :)

  9. I am Sleeping Much Better!!! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 2nd Jul 2016)

    I have Fibromyalgia, Spinal Stenosis, and Arthritis. I mentioned these disorders because I have difficulty getting comfortable in the bed, so I came across the Comfort Living 3 wedge system and a similar system from a different company. I decided on this one, and I have been sleeping on it every day with great results. I hope that you will give this a try, I love mine, and I hope you will too!!!

  10. Get up in the morning Pain Free! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 25th Jun 2016)

    I am an active 68 year old woman with scoliosis. I do yoga, stretching and weights to maintain my flexibility and strength in my back. For years, every morning I had severe low back pain. I would roll out of bed and brace myself in order to stand. Then I would put on an elastic waist cinch to ease the pain. After about an hour of stretching and sitting on my massage chair, I was able to get on with my day. However, throughout the day, I experienced back pain. After the first night on the BackMax, I just got out of bed and had no, I say NO, back pain. It was shocking and amazing. I couldn't believe it. Then throughout the day, only a little soreness would appear. The BackMax is the closest thing to a miracle for me. No back pain.

  11. Uninterrupted sleep! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 19th Jun 2016)

    I have herniated discs in my neck and lower back, 6 total. Before getting this "pillow system" as I call it, I would wake up several times a night with pain. I found this product in 2014 and have slept soundly ever since, no more painful wake ups. Last year I picked up the inflatable version for travel. I am very thankful for my pillow systems. They are game changers!!

  12. Suffering From Two Ruptured Discs 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 13th Jun 2016)

    My husband suffered two ruptured discs and while waiting for a surgery date he could not get in any position without pain to rest or sleep. I found the BackMax Body Wedge System online and prayed that it would help. It was the answer to prayer! From the day we received it, it has provided the right support enabling relief and restful sleep. THANK YOU for your great product!

  13. The only way to sleep 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 10th Jun 2016)

    I now have two bed wedges. One at home and one in our vacation RV. I can't sleep without it. I will now travel with my RV one to get back and forth if I have to stay in a Motel. Love it

  14. Pain Free Sleep, Pain Free Morning After 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 22nd May 2016)

    Chronic lower back pain caused by disc fracture with sciatica was robbing me of sleep and peace.
    I sleep on this every night. It took about 2 weeks to get used to but well worth it. It changed my life.

  15. Great for travel 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 18th May 2016)

    I have been sleeping in a recliner for at least 5 years due to bursitis in my hips and lower back pain. The problem has been trying to get a good nights sleep when we travel. I ordered this product prior to going on vacation and I was not disappointed. It allowed me to sleep well. The only problem is if the bed is high that you are trying to use it on. Then you need a stool to be able to get up on it. For that reason, I will not be able to use it at home unless we get a lower bed. When you first lay down, it is more firm than I expected, but it did not prevent me from sleeping well. I also find it more comfortable to put a pillow on each side to prop up my arms. My biggest challenge was trying to put it back in the travel bag. My first attempt took about 30 minutes but now I have figured out that you have to fold it opposite of how it is unfolded to lay on it. Having this product will allow us so much more freedom in booking hotels for a good night's sleep.

  16. Disappointed 2 Star Review

    (Submitted on 9th Apr 2016)

    The pillow fail to fit my body, therefore, I am not able to use it as intended.

  17. Sturdy, but much too hard for sleep. 2 Star Review

    (Submitted on 3rd Apr 2016)

    I currently sleep on a fairly firm high quality mattress. But I have a sinus problem which requires that I remain in at least a 45 degree sitting position as I sleep.
    I tried the Back-Max system, & found it to be very sturdily made, with heavy duty zippers & good quality ticking.
    But the foam was not resilient enough for comfort, even after it had "relaxed" from the packaged state for 48 hours. I suspect that the memory-foam layer is too thin, because the overall condition can only be described as "stiff", rather than "firm".
    I found it necessary to return the product. Comfort Living was quite courteous & helpful, but return shipping was my responsibility & was expensive, due to the size.

  18. GREAT PRODUCT 5 Star Review

  19. Too big for bed - using on floor. 3 Star Review

    (Submitted on 28th Feb 2016)

    We bought this product for my husband who is recovering from major surgery. He is sleeping in a recliner as he gets short of breath when in a prone position and we thought he could use this product in bed. It is really too big to go on the bed - he felt too high up - had nowhere to put his arms comfortably and it is too firm. Instead I am using it on the floor to support my back when I watch TV.

  20. It Works! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 2nd Feb 2016)

    The product was for my wife. she has hip pain at night...Since using the wedges,, for
    four nights.....NO PAIN
