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.

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 Bed

    Posted by Randolph Boggs on 28th Feb 2020

    With my bad lower back, I haven't had a decent nights sleep in years. I was very skeptical at first, however, my fears were taken away after one night on your bed. My lower back felt 100 percent better. I am very pleased with the foam bed and I will continue to use it regularly. Thanks Contour!

    MUST HAVE for Chronic Pain Sufferer's!!

    Posted by C.Taylor on 22nd Jan 2020

    This Contour zero gravity body pillow makes getting in a comfortable position SOOOO MUCH easier when your body, muscles and joints ache like mine often do...I was looking into getting a pricey adjustable bed but honestly, when you're out of work due to chronic pain, you can't afford to make purchases like that and I won't buy things I can't afford to pay for up front, no matter how good the interest rate is.

    The Countour 28" is what I got, (they have a 20") instead of the pricey adjustable one and it's sufficient ...well worth the $250 bucks! I am 5 ft 8 in tall and weigh 180 lbs. PLENTY of room where your arms don't fall off if you get the 28" one which is what I like. It's very durable...doesn't give when you get on...holds shape good so far. I got mine for Christmas 2019 so it's been almost one month. I love it but there is one thing , although they sell a cover to replace the one it comes with...they are all cream colored. I have a mini maltese , Belle and a mini poodle, Bentley that looove laying around with me when I am having a bad pain day. I usually keep a large blanket thrown over it but there have been times I let the dogs in and their little paw prints made dirty spots. Yes it's a washable, removable cover but I wish they sold some in other colors where spot cleaning is sufficient. Still gets 5 stars...I'd give it 10 if I could!

    BackMax Foam Bed Wedge Body Cushio

    Posted by Lisa Corey on 5th Oct 2019

    I bought BackMax hoping to be able to sleep on my back without snoring or waking up with back pain. I have a chronic shoulder tendonitis on my left side, and get tired of sleeping only on my right side. However, anytime I sleep on my back, I wake myself up snoring and with back pain ( I also have ruptured discs). With BackMax I have the option of sleeping in a reclined position part of the night, whenever I get tired of sleeping on my right side. It feels wonderful!! I can now sleep 2-3 hours straight without waking up due to pressure points or back pain. Prior to sleeping on BackMax, I was waking up every hour all night long. This causes absolutely NO pressure points. I still snore a little, but a lot less than when laying flat on my back. It was worth every cent. I recommend the 28", even though I am petite. I am a VERY satisfied customer.

    Solution for lumbar pain

    Posted by DIANA PINTO on 25th Sep 2019

    Very versatile product due to the many arrangement options it offers plus the possibility of carrying it around to where you need it. I have really felt relief for chronic lumbar pain with the “zero gravity” arrangement. Very satisfied, wish I didn’t have to purchase a cover separately. The material is pretty easy to get dirty being so light colored. It is also soft but not very breathable, tends to get hot.

    Bed wedge body system and travel bag

    Posted by Linda Bullock on 15th Jul 2019

    Kudos to the bed wedge system. Very comfortable. The travel bag is almost too small and the fit is extremely tight. The handle also ripped the very first time I picked it up. I would be 100% satisfied if the travel bag was a tad bit larger and better sewn.

    Very pleased

    Got the bed wedge about a week ago. Since I had been sleeping in a recliner for the last 2 years, it took some getting used to. Now I love it!

    BackMax Bed Wedge

    Posted by Robert Libman on 24th Jun 2019

    I want to tell you that your product is fabulous. I started using it about 6 years ago. Prior to starting using a Back Max I could hardly get out of bed. Sleeping on a Back Max takes all of the pressure of your lower back. Whenever and wherever I travel I always take my Back Max.. And I recommend this to many people. Keep up the good work.
