New Design – Same Great Comfort & Support!

The BackMax Body Wedge System is an ergonomically designed foam bed wedge system that contours to you provided proper spinal alignment. With our NEW model, we have made some design upgrades based on feedback we received from our customers over the years. These design upgrades include:

  • Foam Core Upgrade – features a support foam core & wrapped in 1 inch outer layer of memory foam for not only support, but plushness for comfort!
  • Breathable Removable Cover – no more hot velour cover! The BackMax now has a soft, breathable blue jersey knit cover. The new material now allows you to easily remove and wash your cover without struggling in getting it back on the individual foam wedges.
  • Anti-Skid Design – This makes sure your BackMax stays in place! No more slipping or sliding from the wedges. Now, no matter if you use all of them together or apart, your BackMax foam wedge cushions will stay in place!
  • New Dimensions – we adjusted the overall length of the BackMax Body Wedge Set to better fit our taller customers when zipped together or apart

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?

We have managed to merge the best of both worlds for total comfort and support. The wedges themselves are constructed with a support foam which helps provide proper support that your body needs. However, we wrapped each piece in a 1 inch thick layer of plush memory foam to provide a more comfortable sleeping surface.

What If I Don’t Like It?

Alongside our 1 Year Warranty for any manufacturing defects, we also provide a 45 Day Comfort Guarantee when you order directly from So if you don’t like it, it may be returned for a FULL product refund! For more information on our return policy, please check out our policies page.

    Backmax foam

    I like the idea of this product. I find it a bit too narrow, as my arms come off the pillow. I am trying to determine if these cushions are related to the hives I have suddenly developed.

    Too narrow!

    **Response from Contour Living**

    Hello Cheryl. We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your BackMax. We do offer a wider size in this product for those that would like a little more room. If you are still within your 45 day Comfort Guarantee period, you can definitely return it and exchange for the larder BackMax Cushion Set.

    I had a severe back injury over 30 years ago and have had varying levels of pain ever since. Sleep was often difficult. This is my second purchase of a Backmax, when I settle down on my wedge there is immediate relief for my tired back. I sleep soundly and in the morning when I wake my back is ready to face a new day. I will sleep on a Backmax for the rest of my life.

    When I broke my wrist a few months ago, I had to sleep with I arm elevated, which was nearly impossible in bed. I slept on my recliner sofa with pillows, which worked well. My sofa (with pillows) gave me a near zero gravity effect & comfort. After recovery, I it was hard for me to sleep in bed again, as it was not as comfortable, and I was used to being elevated. I ordered the Back Max, and I am sleeping in my bed again! Very easy to get used to, and very comfortable. Haven't tried the extra cover yet (it looks like fleece & looks like it would be too warm to sleep on. I currently have my Back Max wrapped in a sheet and it's wonderful. I have had my Back Max for 2 weeks now, and I highly recommend it.
