Arrange the ergonomically designed cushions in multiple configurations to suite your individual support needs.

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

Bought this for travel. I cannot sleep flat nor toss & turn due to an inner ear problem. Have an adjustable bed at home but hotels have been a problem. Now I can sleep similar to at home when we travel. I bought the 28" one as I am a bigger person and it is very comfortable and wide. I did feel it was a bit pricey though.

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. That you.

I bought this because after a double mastectomy it is impossible to sleep flat for quite some time. I ended up returning it because it was terribly hard, and the contours were so extreme that I couldn't find it comfortable at all. I am 5'4" and I think one would need to be at least 5 inches taller to feel it was designed right. Also, if you buy one, get the wider one as the 20 inch one left little room for moving and your arms fall to the side.

I have a back disorder and have been forced to sleep in a recliner for 15 years. BackMax makes it possible for me to now get a good night's sleep in my own bed. I can now rest next to my wife in the privacy of my bedroom. Thank you to Contour BackMax Body Wedge!

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.

I have ordered Backmaxes for 4 years now. I use to sleep on a traditional mattress. I take medication that causes my joints to be sore when I wake up. I bought the Backmax Extra Wide edition and used it for a week. The pain in my joints went away. I have been using this ever since. When I go somewhere out of state, I take the Backmax with me. I would recommend this to more than just surgery patients. Anyone that has joint issues should also try this product. The smaller one is not recommended for big or talk people. Extra Wide works well. I would recommend this for a wide range of medical issues including sleep apnea and heart issues.

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!

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 bought this for an upcoming surgery and I think it's going to be perfect. It's very comfortable.

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 .
Laura (Submitted on 30th Jan 2015)
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.
