I'm 6'3 so the unzip sections came in handy I would recommend it to anyone

This wedge is a well built and firm product. I am a 6ft 5 inch man in my 40's with lower lumbar problems. The wedge is built for someone quite shorter. My girlfriend is 5'6" and fits her well. Unzipped works okay for me but gets slid down in my sleep. All and all just using the upper portion does help my back but wish I would have known that before paying 250 dollars for something I can only use half of.

Contour Body Max is the greatest. Finally, I can get some sleep, breathe easily, stop sinus drainage into lungs, & stops choking on acid reflux from laying flat. I highly recommend it.
I love it & recommend it anyone who suffers from acid reflux and/or sinus drainage.

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!

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....

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.

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 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 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, after making some adjustments to it to relieve the sore throat (my wife's not happy, but....).
Thanks to the Back Max, I'm still getting a much more comfortable sleep, and that persistent minor backache that I used to get every morning, is gone!

Product was shipped and received quickly and was of very good quality. Met my needs perfectly as I recover from lumber spine fusion surgery.

My husband had cancer surgery and must sleep upright. We tried a variety of wedges and cushions, but none worked. We slept in recliners for awhile because we couldn't find anything that worked. This is the perfect height. It is comfortable. He doesn't slide down while he is sleeping. It keeps him in a natural position. It is wide enough so he can rest his arms on the wedge. He is sleeping much better. Thank you.

i got the foam contour max for post rotator cuff surgery. It has been a great help and I can't wait to try other configurations after i am out of the sling. We have a king size bed and there is no problem . I use a twin sheet on it and one over it. It is currently sitting on top of the king bottom sheet and the king top sheet has been scooted towards the middle so my husband can move easily on his side

After trying numerous pillows, my husband has health problems so serious, he can't have much need surgery to repair an upper GI issue, this body contour pillow elevates him to a comfortable sleeping/eating position, with the added bed rail, he has been testing so much better, thank you for rushing the order and having an actual live customer service rep who was very kind. I highly recommend this product and this Company

Have been using this every night since it arrived. It's been heaven being able to put this on my bed and sleep with no pain and sleeping longer. I wake up feeling good compared to months of hip and back pain. If there is a downside it is only that the size is cumbersome when making the bed after waking.

Have had equipment 10 days. Very comfortable and excited about relief from discomfort in neck muscles due to spinal surgery to correct pinched nerve. Very satisfied with purchase. Thank you.

This product is so wonderful. When I laid on it my back instantly felt relief. It takes the pressure off your lower back while cradling the rest of you. I will finally have a good night sleep. Thanks for such an amazing product!

Had the inflatable version first and bought the foam version for home and now will use the inflatable version for travel. I would recommend the 28" wide version.

I’m thrilled with my recent purchase of the Back Max! It has been the perfect item to keep me comfy in bed as I recuperate from my surgery. I am required to stay off my feet as much as possible until I return to see my surgeon on February 2nd. The BackMax is so adjustable and stable that it allows me to change into countless positions without having to worry about slipping pillows, etc. It cradles my body and allows me to truly rest. Thanks for a truly great product. I’ll tell all my friends about it!

I am relieved to have this wedge system, as I was unable to sleep in regular bed. It has brought me good night's sleep finally. Every thing is well made and thought through. The little pillow is great. The foam used for the cushions really suits me. The cover is inviting. I am very glad I ordered to plus size - can not imagine having it more narrow. I love the foot rest as it has really helped with the pain in my feet from flopping forward too much.
I think the only thing that could improve this product is to create a means to adjust the length between the back wedge and the leg wedge, so that it is adaptable to different body lengths, while still attached .
I am very grateful for this product....I do not have a lot of money but this was a good and needed investment. Thank you for creating it.

This has been an amazing sleep solution for me. I have sleep apnea. I can't use a machine. I have a dental appliance and needed something to comfortably elevated myself. This was the PERFECT solution for me. Of course it takes a little getting use to because you can't roll from side to side, but after that, it is WONDERFUL! I would highly recommend it. I am not a large person, but got the wider one. It is GREAT!
