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.

    Love my Backmax!

    Posted by Larry Grenier on 4th Feb 2021

    The Backmax is great! I have a hip and a back issue and tried a few different wedges and this on beats them all. There is a slight lumbar support (not just flat) that most don't have and it really makes a difference. The fact that the sections zip together/connect is one of the best and IMO most important features. Well made & very comfortable. It may seem a little firm at first but the firmness makes it all the better. Highly recommend!

    Fabulous!! Highly recommend.

    Posted by Post-surgery Patient on 21st Jan 2021

    I got this for a surgery I have coming up where I have to stay elevated for about 1-2 weeks afterwards. I haven't actually slept in it yet, but I have tested it out and laid in it. This is probably more comfortable than my couch/bed. I lay it in sometimes when I'm just watching TV because it's so comfortable (haven't moved it up to the bedroom yet). Highly recommend! I got the smaller size and I'm a 5'7" 130 lb female. I thought it may have been too small for me, but it fits perfectly. Worth the money for sure.

    Contour Legacy Leg Pillow

    Posted by Doubter Turned Big Fan! on 26th Dec 2020

    For the past decade or so, I have slept with a pillow between my legs to keep my body aligned and my back out of pain. Despite being very effective, the pillow would either bop my wife and wake her up or pull the sheets off her every time I turned. It was just too large.

    When I first saw this product, I imagined it saving my marriage, but had little faith that it would offer the same relief as my pillow. It seemed too small, and I wondered if the contour would even conform to my shape. Both these concerns were invalidated the very first time I used it. Despite a somewhat unpleasant factory smell that went away after a couple of weeks, it has worked like a charm.

    Now I can toss and turn as much as I need to overnight and not disturb my wife's sleep or pull all the covers off the bed. We keep the entire pillow, zip cover and all, inside a pillow case so it can be easily washed (the zip cover is washable, too, but we don't want to wear it out so fast).

    I have become so accustomed to sleeping with this pillow that I wish there was an inflatable version to take with me when I travel. It's definitely a purchase I would make again.

    Great product! Buy today!

    Posted by Sherri James on 21st Nov 2020

    I'm not kidding! If you're on the fence, let this review be the nudge you need to purchase it. I've had persistent back pain for several months. And, after 2 consecutive nights of sleeping on the wedge, I no longer wake up in pain. I'm able to stand up immediately and get moving. I'm blown away. It's not total solution for me. I do intend to purchase an adjustable bed. But, it's the perfect interim step while I save for the bed I plan to purchase. So, don't hesitate. Click buy right now! Seriously, it's made that big of an impact for my life!
