The IntelliPillow allows side sleepers to adjust the height with the contour to properly align your neck and spine. The pillow is constructed from a foam core layer that is then wrapped in Intelli-Gel® Advanced Cushioning Material that provides comfort by gently conforming to every contour of your face.
If you are a side sleeper, you know about the difficulty on trying to find a supportive and comfortable pillow for a good nights rest. With the Intelli-Pillow, you get just that.
For years, medical professionals have preached about the benefits of orthopedic shaped pillows that provide support for the neck and align the head. The technology-laden Intelli-Pillow contains a user-adjustable air bladder that provides just the right amount of support for your individual needs. Its sturdy foam core is designed to maintain proper head and upper spinal alignment, and the Intelli-Gel® Advanced Cushioning Material layer around the foam core provides unsurpassed comfort by gently cushioning every contour of your face and neck. The Intelli-Pillow Original is most popular with users who are primarily side sleepers, but it also works well when users shift position to their back. Available in regular 4" height, the Intelli-Pillow Original and Intelli-Pillow .

I am a back and side sleeper, mostly side, though I try to remain on my back as long as possible (better for your face/skin) - Plagued by neck discomfort from ordinary pillows, I moved to Memory Foam which was good briefly; the problem with Memory Foam is it loses memory fast and flattens out quickly over time. I wake up 6-8 times a night. I consistently awake in the morning with stiff neck/shoulder and pain.
Last night was my first night with this pillow. I slept through the whole night!! In fact, I just ordered another. AND I'm taking the time to write a review which is huge.
The pillow is foam on the inside, but then covered with this strange blue gel. It does come in a zippered cover that is well made.
When it arrived, the pillow was inserted backwards in its cover, so I had to take it out and turn it to access the hand pump. It is easy and quick to inflate by squeezing and remains inflated. The pump is small and soft and in no way can you feel it when using the pillow.
Not only can you inflate the neck roll to your comfort level, but as you move in the night, the neck part "moves" with you. It really cradles your neck dynamically - and just feels delicious....there is no resistance or hard surface your spine is rubbing against. It changes shape as you rotate your head and continuously supports the motion.
I am a huge fan and am now beginning to wonder what the mattresses this company sells are like!!!
I'll update this later if the pillow loses it's form or function - remember this is only my first night with it - but so far - I feel like it's worth every penny.
