How A Wedge Pillow Can Help You Improve Your Health
If you suffer from neck pain, sleep apnea, acid reflux or hiatal hernia, sleeping on a wedge pillow can help you alleviate your medical condition. Doctors recommend such pillows to their patients and there are many cases of individuals who claimed they felt significant improvement in their condition after as little as one month of sleeping on a wedge pillow.
The wedge pillow is available in one size only and measures 18" L x 20" W x 23" H.
For a zero gravity bed system add the Leg Wedge too or purchase it by itself. The Leg Wedge is available in different sizes:
Leg Wedge Sizes:
Extra Small (XS) - 12 1/2" L x 20" W x 5" H (Height up to 5'2")
Small (S) - 15" L x 20" W x 7 1/2" H (Height 5'3"-5'5")
Medium (M) - 21" L x 20" W x 8 1/2" H (Height 5'6"-5'11")
Large (L) - 23" L x 20" W x 10" H (Height 6' and taller)
The Wedge System consists of the wedge pillow plus the appropriate size leg wedge pillow.
When choosing your wedge pillow, it's best to get one with adjustable neck roll. In this way you'll be able to position it exactly as you need, in order to have your neck aligned in the most comfortable position. Besides, by simply attaching the neck roll on the opposite side, you can use the pillow in either 30 degrees or 60 degrees reclining position. This is one more reason to buy this pillow, if you were just looking for one. Why have two pillows, one for sleeping and one for reading books or watching TV, when you can only have one and switch to the other reclining angle?
Another great tip is to go for those pillows that have an anti-allergenic, washable cloth cover. If your pillow doesn't have such a zippered cover, you may want to buy some fabric and make one yourself, so you protect your pillow from getting dirty. If you want, you could even have multiple covers in different colors, so you can match them with your bed linen.
Memory foam is the best material for wedge pillows. It is ergonomically designed and it offers multiple health benefits. By sleeping on memory foam, your body will put less pressure on the tiny blood vessels, thus improving your blood circulation or preventing those vessels from breaking under the pressure of your weight. This is actually one of the reasons why memory foam is used not only for pillows but also for mattresses.
Patented design is also an important feature. You want to make sure the pillow will provide you the required support for the neck and for the back, in order to take pressure off your bones and nerves.
All these advantages come with a price, but it's much better to get a top notch quality product that will truly enhance your health and well-being, instead of paying less but not being able to get rid of the problems you wanted the pillow for in the first place.
