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.

    I have terminal cancer. I do chemo every 3 weeks and it's letting my arthritis just eat up my spine. I couldn't find a way to sit or lay that I wasn't in pain. This was a God send. I can finally get some real sleep. I'm only 4'9" so I had to put a towel here or there but that's just fine for the relief i get.

    shoulder surgery

    Posted by Charlotte on 8th Oct 2020

    I needed to sleep up right with a sling on for 4-6 weeks (rotator cuff surgery). So the hunt was on for something, perhaps in my bed. Then I came across the body cushion. Perfect! However, I purchased the large size because the small didn't seem wide enough. Glad I did. I needed to have a 2 inch foam running the length of "bed" because where the zipper attaches at the base of the spine, I was on the floor, so support is needed there. I use my own pillow for my head and half roll pillow that comes with "bed" under my sling for support. I'm comfortable throughout the night.
    I should add I'm a small person at 5'3", 115lbs.
    This 'bed' works because of the support of the wedge and its angle plus the elevation of legs to take pressure off back.
    I'm happy with this and my kids look forward to using this to lounge on.

    Works better than I hoped

    Posted by Anna M on 2nd Oct 2020

    I am severely overweight and, even though I got the 28 inch pillow, I was skeptical that any device could help the back and hip pain I get while sleeping. So while I was in enough pain to try a new solution, I fully researched the return policy and assumed I would definitely be using it.

    I am happy to say I will NOT be returning this product. From night 1, I have had zero hip or back pain upon waking. I use a CPAP and I would will still wake up at night to shift my body due to pain. I sleep much longer now that I don't need to do that!

    I recommend this product with all 5 stars.

    Very glad I made this purchase for the pillows! I have a habit of reading in bed for hours before bedtime, but my lower back and hip muscles began to tighten and express their disagreement more regularly. After significant research, I opted for the large-sized BACKMAX FOAM BED WEDGE BODY CUSHION from Contour Living. They arrived within the week, more quickly than I expected given COVID disruptions (thank you!). My first time sitting on them, I immediately felt comfortable, no adjustment necessary. The material of the foam is high quality, as are the very soft material for the pillowcases. I particularly like the nonslip material on the undersides of the pillowcases too. The lower back support is impressive and now that I use them on a daily basis, I no longer feel any discomfort! Truly impressive... my picky fiancee is now thinking about getting his own, since of course I'm not sharing mine ;)

    One point to note, they will need to be aired out for a couple days to remove the stored chemical foam smell, but it's to be expected and well worth the effort. Removing the cases to wash them is easier than I expected too, just be sure to note before you remove them how to position the pillows to put them back on (and which case goes to which pillow)!
    Highly recommend these to anyone who reads, studies, or watches TV from bed!! Thank you, Contour Living!
