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.

    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!

    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.

    Thank you!

    BackMax 20" body wedge cushion

    Posted by Contour Living Customer on 12th Dec 2018

    There is NO comparison with this updated and improved version compared to the previous tan version. The support and comfort FAR surpasses its predecessor. Highly recommended for anyone with lower back issues. Apparently the 28" size is still on the old design. Get the 20"!

    No More Pain Now that I have the Contour BackMax

    Posted by Dr. Herb Ross, author of Sleep Disorders on 29th Oct 2018

    Due to a peripheral neuropathy sleeping on any mattress results in terrible leg pain, and a chronic insomnia due to the pain. I have tried many options including drugs, knee pillows, trying to sleep on my back, or on my stomach, I have always been a side sleeper which really aggravated the pain. In desperation I have been sleeping in my zero gravity chair, with some success, and some discomfort including a waking back pain. Desperate for a solution I googled " sleeping on a zero gravity chair" and found your web site, and ended up buying the body max which I slept on last night with a ***** (5) star experience. Although this was only one night, I feel that I have at last found a solution.

    I should mention that I am a retired holistic chiropractor and the author of a best selling book on how to get a good night's sleep without using drugs (Sleep Disorders)

    Thanks for a great product

    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!!!
