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. By using the pieces together or apart, the BackMax foam wedge system allows you to arrange the wedges for different support positions. 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.

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.

    I Now Use It Every Night!

    Posted by Mary Cooper - Cape Coral, FL on 29th Oct 2018

    I bought a BackMax Foam Wedge Body Cushion last year before my surgery and I absolutely love it. I thought I would only use it during my recovery period, but I ended up using it every day. It is a great tool to use to relax after a hard day at work.

    I love the fact that there weren’t any smells associated with the product. I bought one foam product and I ended up having to toss it because it smelled so bad. Plus, the cover is easy to clean.

    BackMax Is Great For Me When I Travel

    Posted by Ann Morrison on 29th Oct 2018

    contacted Customer Service to see if I could purchase a replacement cover for my wide Contour BackMax. I've had my BackMax for a number of years and have hauled it all over the place. It is my means of sleeping away from home [I sleep in a recliner due to numerous medical conditions] and the cover has had a lot of wear and tear. Your Customer Service Manager Lisa Raffety found one in the warehouse. I was able to purchase it at a reasonable price and it shipped the next day, due to arrive tomorrow. I am so pleased with the help that I received! My BackMax gives me the freedom to travel without worrying about how I am going to sleep or even if I will sleep. Thank you so much! When my current Contour BackMax wears out, I will definitely be back for another one!

    Best Ever!

    Posted by POB on 26th Oct 2018

    I already have 2 of the BackMax in the 20" width. I use one every nite - alternating once a month to keep them firm. However, I just bought the 28" wide BackMax & I absolutely love it! It is the perfect width to fit my body & arms in a very comfortable position. I started using it because of bursitis in my hip that I was repeatedly getting. I haven't gotten it since using this product. Absolutely love it!

    Fabulous BackMax Contour Pillows

    Posted by Janice V. on 26th Oct 2018

    I was suffering from the worst back pain. Not even my extra thick pillow top bed was helping anymore. I woke up every day feeling like my back was beaten with a baseball bat. I would wake up from the pain at the worst hours. These three magic contour zero gravity pillows have been the best thing I could’ve purchased all year. My back pain is minimal at best now. The zero gravity element gives relief to not only my back and hips, but my legs as well. I sleep wonderfully now! Thank you!!!

    Best Option I've Found

    Posted by Terri on 25th Oct 2018

    I was sleeping in a recliner for more than a year. I'm now back in my bed. I sleep comfortably thru the night without waking up. I do sleep too warm because of the foam so I'm concerned about comfort during the summer but its great for chillier nights.

    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.
