Now Available In Two Different Models! The BackMax Body Wedge set is now available not only in foam, but an inflatable version as well. This 3 piece wedge system is perfect for those looking for support and comfort from lounging to post surgery recovery comfort! What makes this BackMax unique is that it allows the users to separate and fold the wedges into different positions to provide comfort and support, no matter where your pain point might be.
Available in two different versions, foam and inflatable. Both BackMax models offer optimal support and comfort while providing multi-use support. Use the wedge system to provide full body support, or simply unzip the wedges for separate use as a back wedge, knee wedge or elevated foot support.
One of the key features of the BackMax Body Wedge System is that you can lay in the "Zero Gravity, Stress Free Position", which helps promote better circulation. This wedge system has been helpful for those looking for post surgery comfort, acid reflux, pregnancy plus much more! Whether you are relaxing, exercising, reading, or sleeping, the Inflatable BackMax offers support for your pain points from your back, legs or feet.

More About our New Inflatable BackMax
The Inflatable BackMax is a multi-functional support system that allows users to use all 3 wedges as one, or as separate cushions for targeted support. Use the cushions together for full body support, or separately as a backrest, knee wedge or foot support. Each cushion inflates to your own custom level of support with the included air pump, and deflates just as easily. Once deflated, each cushion is compact and the perfect size for travel.
The Inflatable BackMax Cushion Set offers all the key benefits of our foam cushion BackMax Body Wedges, but comes in a compact size perfect for storage and travel.
When laying on your stomach, the Contour Inflatable BackMax relieves strain and tension on the lower back by allowing the spine to maintain its natural curve and back muscles are able to relax.
By elevating your legs, it's been noted that it helps aid circulation. Great for those suffering from edema or other forms of swelling.
The foot rest is another great way to elevate your legs and feet which helps improve support for any swollen feet.
When using the Inflatable BackMax's’ backrest in the upright position, it offers ultimate support for reading, watching TV, eating, nursing, plus much more.
As many doctors have noted that many patients suffer at least once a month from gastrointestinal problems. The Inflatable BackMax allows sufferers to rest and relax more comfortably by gently elevating them as opposed to someone laying flat.
If you opt for full body support, and use all 3 wedges and lay in the standard position, you are then placing your body in the 120 degree angle position. Many refer to this position as the “zero- stress” or “zero-gravity” position. This positions helps relieve tension and lower back strain allowing the muscles and ligaments to relax.
NASA Astronauts are seated in the same zero-gravity position during liftoff to help minimize the pressure on their body.

Had the inflatable version first and bought the foam version for home and now will use the inflatable version for travel. I would recommend the 28" wide version.

I am thrilled to be able to sleep in my travel trailer with NO BACK PAIN in the morning. the 42" wide inflatable version is the closest thing to my adjustable bed at home and fits even my 6'2" 280 lb frame.

I sleep in a recliner every night. Bought this to take on a trip. Blow it up each night in the hotel. Only takes a few minutes. Infates in no time. I've been sleeping like a rock. Love this thing

I bought this product to travel out of the country. I have not been able to sleep in a bed for 7 years so I can only sleep in a recliner. This product worked PERFECT for me and allowed me to travel to Brazil for a wedding. I filled the back support mostly full, the center section about half full and the bottom section about 75% full. This worked for me and what I needed to be comfortable. I slept through the night and no back ache in the morning... Highly recommend

My husband suffered two ruptured discs and while waiting for a surgery date he could not get in any position without pain to rest or sleep. I found the BackMax Body Wedge System online and prayed that it would help. It was the answer to prayer! From the day we received it, it has provided the right support enabling relief and restful sleep. THANK YOU for your great product!

This product is so wonderful. When I laid on it my back instantly felt relief. It takes the pressure off your lower back while cradling the rest of you. I will finally have a good night sleep. Thanks for such an amazing product!

Have had equipment 10 days. Very comfortable and excited about relief from discomfort in neck muscles due to spinal surgery to correct pinched nerve. Very satisfied with purchase. Thank you.

Have been using this every night since it arrived. It's been heaven being able to put this on my bed and sleep with no pain and sleeping longer. I wake up feeling good compared to months of hip and back pain. If there is a downside it is only that the size is cumbersome when making the bed after waking.

I have slept on the regular Backmax for about 4 years and I love it. I put it right on top of any bed. Certain new events in my life have required that I travel a lot and I didn't want to haul my regular Backmx around since it takes up so much room in the car, so I ordered this inflatable version. One problem for me is that it is very hard to get the proper inflation. If it too inflated it is hard and unyielding, if it is under inflated it's sloppy and hard to move around on. I've found that it is ok for camping if I under inflate it and sleep in a sleeping bag, but I have a really hard time with it if I try to put it on a bed as I do with my regular Backmax. It also causes unusual temperature problems similar to other inflatable beds; it can be cold, but also cause you to sweat. I have found myself taking my regular Backmax when I drive. I don't know what I'll do when I need to fly. I might try taking the inflatable or I'll just make due with whatever bed I have to sleep in and have a sore back.

After trying numerous pillows, my husband has health problems so serious, he can't have much need surgery to repair an upper GI issue, this body contour pillow elevates him to a comfortable sleeping/eating position, with the added bed rail, he has been testing so much better, thank you for rushing the order and having an actual live customer service rep who was very kind. I highly recommend this product and this Company

i got the foam contour max for post rotator cuff surgery. It has been a great help and I can't wait to try other configurations after i am out of the sling. We have a king size bed and there is no problem . I use a twin sheet on it and one over it. It is currently sitting on top of the king bottom sheet and the king top sheet has been scooted towards the middle so my husband can move easily on his side

My husband had cancer surgery and must sleep upright. We tried a variety of wedges and cushions, but none worked. We slept in recliners for awhile because we couldn't find anything that worked. This is the perfect height. It is comfortable. He doesn't slide down while he is sleeping. It keeps him in a natural position. It is wide enough so he can rest his arms on the wedge. He is sleeping much better. That you.

Product was shipped and received quickly and was of very good quality. Met my needs perfectly as I recover from lumber spine fusion surgery.

I love this product. The removal of my esophagus means I cannot lie flat on my back. I have a wedge my daughter bought for me but I kept on sliding down the wedge. The Inflatable BackMax Cushion works much better than the couch cushions I improvised. The first two Inflatable BackMax Cushion had a leak in the middle section (I only weigh 147 lbs. and they were replaced under warrantee by Amazon) I am going to purchase a foam version for home and use the inflatable for traveling.

I have been blest with Sleep Apnea so I've been using a CPAP machine, for a long time. The CPAP caused a permanent sore throat due to it's pumping air down my throat all night, and I had a Humidifier on it. I'm happy to report that I'm no longer using the CPAP. and my sore throat has gone away, thanks to the Back Max Body Wedge.
I learned, while in the hospital for surgery, that I did not need the CPAP, as long as I elevated my upper torso, and set my legs up for correct circulation, using their adjustable hospital bed.
When I got home I was going to get one of those beds. The cost stopped that pursuit. So I tried various combinations of cushions and wedges, to try to achieve the same effect. But these arrangements had one big problem - they changed their configurations throughout the night, causing me to constantly awake and reposition them. The only one that didn't shift was the Back Max Body Wedge.
This unit sets me in the correct position - and holds it throughout the night. As a result, I'm getting a full night's sleep without interruptions. It's the most comfortable arrangement I've had in the past 30, or so, years.
Good job Contour Living!
I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyable sleep! (so's my wife - who no longer has to listen to all that racket the CPAP made)
Update: Before you discard your CPAP, see your prescribing physician and do a BOL (Blood Oxygen Level) test. I did, and we found out that I was not getting the optimum level, which is why the CPAP was originally prescribed. So, I'm back on the CPAP, aftermaking some adjustments to it to relieve the sore throat (my wife's not happy, but....).
Thanks to the Back Max, I'mstill getting a much more comfortable sleep, and that persistent minor backache that I used to get every morning, is gone!

My first BackMax was the one made from support foam. The first night I used it was the first time I slept through the night in a year due to back pain. The only problem with this version is that it was so slender their was no room for your arms. I had to use pillows on both sides to support my arms as the height of the pillow would leave your arms just hanging. It is also a pain to pack and takes up a great deal of room to transport.
This second one was the inflatable version which is wonderful for travel. The fact that it folds up to about 12 x 17 x 7 inches makes it easy to put in a suitcase or even mail ahead of time to your destiny. It can be inflated to the firmness you desire. It is wider than the first version and your arms fit on it without the need of extra pillows on the side. I will keep both of them but will definitely take the inflatable one for travel. If it holds up as well as expected, I will be selling the original.

My husband has a bad back, sleeps in an adjustable bed at home. Whenever we went away on vacation, I always tried to find something with a recliner so he could sleep (he can't lay flat). This is wonderful, lets him sleep and is portable. Perfect. So glad I find it.

I have had back problems all my adult life. Five years ago I had to have spinal surgery which left me unable to lay down without pain. I researched for anything that would help me. The BackMax Body Wedge did just that. I can now rest my back during the day and sleep without pain all night long. It puts you in the ultimate Zero Gravity position, so there are no pressure points and it positions your spine the way nature intended. It truly changed my life!! Thank you so much for this wonderful product.

Although I am under 5'6" tall, every part of this is too short for me.
If it was the right size for me, I think it would be a very good solution. Unfortunately I have to return it.
