Reflux Wedge Pillow - Specifications
Elevation of the head only on pillows actually exacerbates many sleep problems, particularly acid reflux, as your body is inclined to bend in the middle, which allows stomach acid to go part way up the oesophagus and get trapped which causes extreme discomfort. The single most popular recommendation from medical professionals is to elevate the upper torso to alleviate symptoms, which in turn may reduce the necessity to take prescribed medications.
Multi functional, the wedge shaped pillow can be used at the bottom of the bed to raise and support the legs encouraging good circulation, relieving symptoms of varicose veins, swollen ankles, phlebitis and oedema. For many, this simple natural remedy may be all that is required to manage such conditions very well.
Excellent to manage Gerd during pregnancy.
Our wedge pillows are constructed from high density CM foam which has a laminated layer of 'eggcrate' design Memory Foam to increase airflow , fitted with a luxury cream damask polyester, cotton feel zip off cover, the wedge pillow cover is easily removed for cleaning purposes.
All you need to know about our wedge pillow'sWhat was originally created as a variant on the Creating Comforts standard acid reflux bed wedge has now become a regular part of our product line. We initially received a request from a client asking if we could create a lower incline wedge to elevate the upper torso but at a smaller degree. Always aiming to please we created the custom wedge as a bespoke item, just for her. After the initial design we realized how helpful this wedge could be for others and now have it here on offer for all. Relief from aches, pains, and some health issues can be achieved with any of our wedges, yet for some, the lower incline and larger overall surface are allow for a more comfortable and restful night of sleep. This type of wedge is particularly helpful for those with a larger body frame.
Regardless of the incline you prefer, it is important that your head, shoulders, and torso are supported at the correct elevation to alleviate the common symptoms of acid reflux, heartburn, respiratory conditions, sinusitis, hiatus hernia, and many other health related problems. The gradual incline of our wedge pillow allows gravity to work in your favor. The elevation provided by the wedge helps to keep stomach acid and food down, will drain sinuses, and keep your airways open for easier breathing. The problem with standard pillows is that they will only elevate your head and not your entire torso. When only the head is elevated it will actually cause many sleep problems to worsen, particularly acid reflux. The curve of the body at rest means that your middle can be slightly more elevated than the rest of your body which allows for stomach acid to travel up the esophagus and get trapped causing the burning discomfort that acid reflux is known for. The number one most common recommendation from medical professionals is to raise the torso to prevent these symptoms. The added benefit of the wedge pillow is that it can potentially lessen symptoms enough that prescribed medication is no longer necessary.
All of our wedges also offer superior support during pregnancy and can help with back pain, difficulty sleeping, and Gerd. Being pregnant is hard enough. With a Creating Comforts pillow you will have a more restful symptom free night. In addition to elevating your torso, the wedge can also be used at the foot of the bed as a leg support to aid in good circulation, relieving symptoms of varicose veins, swollen ankles, phlebitis, and oedema. This natural remedy can often work so well that it may be all that is needed to manage these conditions.
All of the Creating Comforts wedge type pillows are constructed of high density CM foam with a laminated layer of “egg crate” memory foam. This particular design aids increases airflow to help keep the pillow a comfortable temperature. Each pillow comes with a fitted luxury cream damask polyester cotton-feel cover with easy zip on zip off closure for easy removal.

Wedge pillow to
aid post-op recovery
If you are recovering from surgery, doctors recommend that you use a bed wedge pillow to improve the healing process. The pillow will also allow you to be comfortable as you recuperate. The first priority should be whichever part of the body has been operated. A wedge pillow should be used to raise up that part of the body. This will get the blood flowing, give the tissue a break, and reduce inflammation. No matter what part of the body has been operated on, whether it be torso, feet, legs, hip, arms, and especially the head could keep the head comfortably positioned for recovery.
Here are some of the most common surgeries that using a bed wedge pillow will aid in recovery:
Although these are some of the
most common types of surgery that
could use a wedge pillow, almost
any patient can benefit from using
a wedge pillow. It will make
recovery that much easier and
All well and good right, however, do you want to spring for something that you will only use during recovery?
It may be true that you will only need to have surgery (hopefully) once every few years at most unless you are very unfortunate in health but it is also true that you can use your wedge pillow at other times beside post-surgery. It has many purposes and is well worth the money.
Need an example? Well think of the things you do with a pillow behind you, other than sleep.You watch television, read, or work on your lap top computer. What do you use to feel comfortable as you do that? Do you jam a bunch of pillows behind you? Do you have to re-jam them? Furthermore, will this really keep your neck comfortable? Either your back or your neck will be in an unnatural. So much for relaxing and enjoying TV or a good book. Replace those pillows with a wedge pillow and you will feel more comfortable. Already the pillow will start paying for itself.
However, just how much will it cost? There is a wide price range of about £30 up to £180. The price depends on what the pillow is made of and how it is constructed. The initial purchase can be compared relative to the cost of any post- surgery medical device or specialist equipment. However, there are not many devices that can be converted to everyday use. There is a good chance that you will wonder how you ever got by without one in your daily life!
I was ordered to use one of these on medical grounds and I was dreading it. However this has been wonderful. It is extremely comfortable. Our fitted sheets tuck neatly around it. It never moves whatsoever during the night. It felt a bit odd trying to sleep on a slope for the first night, but the second night I had a wonderful sleep.
This has been absolutely amazing and helped someone sleep who was having difficulties due to the build up of fluid on his lungs. Definitely recommended. We have a king size bed and it fits perfectly as I was worried I was forever going to be hitting my head on it as I turned over in bed but I have no worries now. Not sure how it would fit though in a double bed. But definitely recommended.
Seems to be doing the trick!!! Helping my husband with his reflux exactly what he wanted..... Great product exactly how described
It is very effective and has given me great relieve from reflux.
