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.

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.

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 contourliving.com. 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.

  1. I can travel again. 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 5th Sep 2017)

    After two years I can give up my recliner and am able to travel without dragging a zero gravity chair and padding. I use the wedge every night and I like that I can unzip the parts I don't need. It will be lighter to carry into motel rooms for travel.

  2. BackMax Is Great for Me When I Travel! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 8th Aug 2017)

    I 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!

  3. Best Ever! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 24th Jun 2017)

    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!

  4. I Now Use It Every Night! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 21st Jun 2017)

    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.

  5. Returning, Happy Customer! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 1st May 2017)

    Incredibly fast shipping. I'm a returning customer and this 2.0 model is awesome! Thank you.

  6. Total Comfort. 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 22nd Apr 2017)

    The BackMax Foam Body Wedge is so comfortable. I have used it for three nights in a row and much to my husband's delight I haven't snored once.
    I suffer from chronic back pain and I haven't had a backache since I started using this product. I am having a hard time adjusting to sleeping on my back since I am a side sleeper but it is worth it to not snore and to be pain free. I highly recommend this product.

  7. BackMax Foam Body Wedge System 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 18th Apr 2017)

    I received my BackMax Foam Body Wedge two weeks ago and have not slept so well in years. Finally, no more morning back ache or waking up at 3:00 AM in pain. No more sleeping on the sofa or in a recliner. I am sure I am getting more and deeper sleep. I can not believe the difference it had made.

  8. Now I look forward to bedtime! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 13th Apr 2017)

    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!
