Multi-Functional Full Body Support - Perfect for Elevation, Recovery from Surgery & Finding a Comfortable Sleeping Position!

The Contour BackMax Body Wedge System has been allowing customers to enjoy total body comfort and support since it was first introduced on TV in early 2000’s. The BackMax is a 3 piece foam wedge pillow set which provides total body support. The multi-functional sleep system also allows you to detach the wedge pieces by unzipping them, which allows you to use each piece individually.

So whether you are looking for full body support while sleeping on your back, or elevating your torso or knees for comfortable relaxation, the BackMax Body Wedge System does it all.

" 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.

What Is The Difference Between Each BackMax?

Our BackMax bed wedge system is offered in two different sizes, 20” or 28” widths. Both are exactly the same aside from the width of the cushions. However, even petite framed customers prefer the larger size BackMax as there is more room for their arms to rest comfortably on the side of their bodies versus the standard (20”) width. The Deluxe 28 model, now comes with a plush, lightweight, white fleece removable cover.

How Firm Are The Wedge Pillows Themselves?

The wedges themselves are constructed with a support foam which helps provide proper support & alignment that your body needs.

    Multiple-position wedge system

    Posted by Joy LeValley on 28th Mar 2019

    This product has given some of the best nights sleep I have had in a long time. Great to no longer have to sleep in a recliner. Craftsmanship is excellent with ultra-comfort in mind. The soft covering adds to the experience since I also suffer from Fibromyalgia. Thanks

    Solved my problem!

    Posted by Chris on 26th Mar 2019

    For the last three years I've had a condition called thoracic neuropathy (due to a lifting injury which caused damage to an end plate called "minimal marrow edema--bone bruising). Hopefully, this condition will heal in the coming weeks and months after using this product for some time, but I'll see. In any case, for the last three years, I've only been able to get 3 to 4 hours of sleep a night, always waking from pain due to compression on the area or an incorrectable spinal alignment from any other sleeping position (side or stomach, as I am a back sleeper). It's been very difficult. Two weeks ago, I received this product and since the first evening to date, I have been getting as much sleep as I need, and have NOT been waking from pain. This is due to the 45 degree angle back position, legs up (especially so I don't slide during the night), and the impression in the wedge propped behind the back (it's perfectly located for my issue). I realize that this product just happens to be perfectly set up for my particular condition, but I am aware of many others out there who have an injury such as mine who could very well benefit from this product. I couldn't be any happier than I am given the results I was hoping for from this product, and then actually receiving them.

    Could've been 5+ but I didn't get the vinyl storage/travel case

    This is a great zero gravity system. The white fleece is an added bonus. The comfort is superb. I lay in it and cover myself with my fluffy Buffy blanket and I don't awaken till the next day! I feel like a Queen.
    If you are thinking about it, try it. The 28' is the way to go.

    Back Max

    Posted by Matthew Weaver on 29th Dec 2018

    Well I have one that was blue. It changed my life. Love it! Bought one for my father-in-law. It is a different. What I don’t like is they didn’t ship it with a case like mine had. Bummer, because I’m going to need a new one soon. The blue Back Max makes me smile all night. (In my sleep) This white one in very firm. They should make both but quit making the blue on.

    The customer service was excellent. And the BackMax was a godsend to a friend that had had major back surgery about a week ago. She slept comfortably and woke up without shoulder or neck pain for the first time in a very long time. Thanks Contour.

    BackMax Foam Body Wedge System

    Posted by Don Pittman on 12th Dec 2018

    I received my BackMax Foam Body Wedge two weeks ago and have not slept so well in years. Finally, no more morning back ache or waking up at 3:00 AM in pain. No more sleeping on the sofa or in a recliner. I am sure I am getting more and deeper sleep. I can not believe the difference it had made.

    This was a quality product. I was just unable to use it longer than 2 hours due to my back pain.

    Now I Look Forward To Bedtime!

    Posted by Donna Hughes on 12th Dec 2018

    I have problems with arthritis, both in the sciatic nerves and also in my neck. For nearly 20 years I have slept in reclining chairs that I could adjust into a fairly zero gravity position, but it has been harder to find chairs with both lumbar support and adjustability. When after almost 3 years one of the motor units unexpectedly broke on the power chair I got, which I had thought was the final solution because it was so adjustable, and I was left with no way to sleep except propping a bunch of pillows on the bed and wrestling with them as they shifted all night, I said to myself that there had to be a better way than what I had been doing. When I went looking online the next day I was thrilled to find Contour Living and their Back Max support system of wedge cushions. I was even happier when after ordering it with free shipping that it was sent right out and here in a couple of days! I was SO tired of the nightly pillow fight. The first night I slept all night until morning without waking up at all! WOW! It did take 3 or 4 nights for my back to readjust to spending the night in a straighter position, so that when I got up in the morning there wasn't some stiffness, and I also found the best placement for the leg and back wedge for my short body. Now it is perfect and I couldn't be happier! I sleep very well and get up in the morning feeling great!
