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.

    The Anywhere Lounger

    Posted by AB Clarke on 26th May 2024

    I love my “Bed-Wedge”.. If you don’t have room for a chaise (like I don’t), this is the next best thing?. It does not take up a lot of space, it goes anywhere and such a versatile piece…just great & comfy. I have had it for over 10-years and it is still sturdy.

    Backmax bed cushions

    Posted by Harol on 17th Nov 2022

    I had been getting pain shots for bad back and sleeping in a recliner was the only way to get some relief. My wife found and ordered this product and I have never slept better. I no longer get pain shots and to my wife’s relief I no longer snore. I have 3 sets of backmax. One for home, one for short trips and one at my grandkids house in another state . By the way my pain management doctor hadn’t heard of this product and he will definitely recommend it to his patients.

    Backmax Foam Bed Wedge Body Cushion

    Posted by Laurie Shackelford on 13th May 2022

    Before purchasing the Backmax Bed Wedge, I spent many sleepless nights in a recliner - trying to find some relief from my back pain. When I found your product online, I was skeptical but desperate for a good night's sleep; so I ordered the 28" cushion and the very first night I spent on it was the first uninterrupted sleep I'd had in almost a year! I also purchased the 20" bed wedge with a travel case and use it when I travel (I check the case with my other luggage when I fly). Thank you for making an amazing product; my quality of life has improved greatly.

    Back Max

    Posted by Rickey Brantley on 27th Nov 2021

    Since having total knee replacement surgery and shoulder surgery I have to sleep on my back. I spent 5 months sleeping in my recliner and since using the Back Max in the zero gravity position I have been able to sleep in my bed again. This is a great product and now I have something I can take when we travel as well.

    Finally, decent night's sleep!

    Posted by Robert Simmons on 7th Aug 2021

    First, fantastic quality from density to design to zippers. I have apnea (on a cpap), but sleeping in a raised position let's me lay on my back, and this wedge is larger than any I've found. I also have hip issues from an old injury, and leg-vein issues that causes swelled ankles. The knee-bend and footrest all combine to minimize and even remove all these issues. Lately I bought a high-end recliner for sleeping, which also works, but it is not really built for long-term nightly use. Thank you Contour Living!

    Sleep wedge bed

    Posted by Darci Klees on 2nd Aug 2021

    I bought this for upcoming surgery. While I haven’t slept on it yet I did lay down and test it out. There should be two sizes. I’m 5’2” and it’s a bit big for me. My knees don’t fold properly over that wedge and stick more up in the air. There should be two size options, one for those under 5’4” and one for over 5’5”. I think it would be amazing if I could have this.
