Enjoy total body comfort and support 8 different ways! This 3-piece multi-functional wedge system provides complete back and body support! Arrange the ergonomically designed cushions in multiple configurations to suite your individual support needs. You can even recreate the zero gravity position, placing your body at a 120-degree angle, one of the most relaxed positions for your body. Unique zippered connections allow full adjustability - just zip apart and use each cushion individually, or in any combination.
The BackMax is wonderful for recovery after surgery - especially tummy tuck surgery (Abdominoplasty), breast augmentation, shoulder surgery and more. The BackMax is vital to finding a comfortable resting and sleeping position when you can't comfortably lie in bed. It aids in elevation body parts for increased circulation and faster recvoveries. Since each cush can be unzipped, repositioned or used individually, every user can find the ideal position.
"...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." ... Contour Customer Review.
Standard BackMax Includes
All 3 cushions in standard 20 inch width. The covers include Fleece on the top side of each cushion only, sides are a stretch polyester fabric. This is the original BackMax! Includes free pillow.

Yes, I do sleep on a higher plane than my husband now, but at least I can sleep peacefully now all night long. After an upper GI series test, my doctor recommended that I sleep with my chest elevated. Guess what, less acid reflux problems; and, that means less stress on my ulcer. Thank you Back Max Wedge

This is the Best!!! I have severe Fibromyalgia - hurt every night on either one hip or other if I sleep on my side, or if I sleep on my back, lower back pain...this fact, as well as the fact that most Fibromyalgia patients have a problem with insomnia made me search the web for something that helps.
With back issues, if you just put a small foot stool by the side of your bed to help get it in, it sure helps! Was a little difficult at first but once I figured this out, no problems getting in.
I am sleeping better than I have slept in years.
This product is great - will go with me anywhere I go.

These were purchased for a person who must not lay flat and must sleep at a 30° angle every night. He LOVES it!

It's hard to use in a bed because you can't really put sheets on it and you can't change positions. I don't sleep in one position all night.

I am 6'3", and had no place to rest my head. The top portion, only came up to my shoulders. The bottom piece worked great for elevating my legs, but $150 just for a leg rest is way too much. It held air well for the couple weeks that I tried it.

The system is very difficult to maneuver when you have back problems. If imagine people buying the wedge system have back issues. It definitely is not built for short people. I'm guessing you need to be between 5'4"/5" to 5'10" for it to "work" for you.

I ordered for my wife but sadly it was too large for her. She has shrunk to less than 5 feet. I felt the quality for the unit was really good. I had to return it and Contour stood behind their word and returned my money in full. I would not hesitate to buy from them again.

I LOVED IT , BECAUSE IT IS MUCH WIDER THAN THE FIRST ONE I BOUGHT. BUT THEY BOTH ARE GREAT .

I bought the 20" version so I could use it on my couch. It's a comfortable way to rest, watch TV or read a book. In my opinion it's more comfortable to use at least one other bed pillow under my head. I also use it with a bed comforter on top of it. I also use it on my bed . I don't wake up in the morning with stiff back pain since I started using it (every night now for 3 weeks). It's a much more convenient way to prop my head up than just using a bunch of pillows only. My only regret is not buying one of these years ago. I am 5 feet 2 inches tall and weigh 96 pounds. It works very well for me and I feel comfortable when using it.

I am 74 and in Hospice due to terminal cancer. I also have Fibromyalgia and sleep on a adjustable memory foam mattress for the last two years in Zero G position. My daughter bought the Back Max Deluxe in order for me to travel 875 miles to attend my grandson's wedding and pay a last visit to the Oregon Coast. Despite sleeping in in-expensive motels and on a hide-a-bed couch in the beach house, I was a comfortable as I am in my own adjustable bed at home. Thank you for the opportunity to have some last memories. I am 5' 3" and weigh 190. The Back Max fit me perfectly except the knee wedge was too sharp. A memory foam pillow on the calf side eased the slope and supported my legs. I slept all night on my back with no strain and awoke refreshed. I gave this 5 stars.

The only reason I have not given this set 5 stars, is the size of the wedge. I am 5'6", so not a short person, and the wedge is too large for my legs. Thus, I still need to search for a wedge to fit better for sleeping (on my back). The whole set works for relaxing and reading, though.

Product is too hard and needs to be softer or at least offer an option of a softer material.

I have acid reflux and cannot afford an adjusting bed so I thought this would be a great compromise WRONG this was like laying on a rock.. I order the large one 28" across for $249.99.

tried this one as it is wider than most, but still too narrow for my wife. had to return it.
Customer Service Response: We do offer the BackMax is two sizes, standard and plus (which is 8" wider - which most customers lean towards). We also recently added the Inflatable BackMax which is available in 20", 28" & 42" as well.
Contour Living Customer (Submitted on 6th Aug 2014)
Unfortunately I find it is uncomfortable and too narrow. I knew it was too narrow when I ordered it though. And yes, it is awkward to crawl onto when placed on a bed. I can use pillows to support my arms.
However I will still use it when I am away from home or from a recliner. Such as having to stay in a hotel. Otherwise the shipping was fine along with the delivery date.

PERFECT for rotator cuff surgery when you don't own a recliner. Best part is back rest is ergonomically correct so it is very comfortable.! Great purchase!
