It’s more than just for sleeping. A bed wedge is a pillow used for sleeping that is made of moderately firm foam. The wedge pillow has a triangular shape with a tapered incline that helps the user remain in a semi-upright position during sleep.
Here are some tips on how to use this pillow to your advantage:
Elevates the head to help sinuses drain freely when experiencing colds. Also it helps alleviate symptoms from acid reflux or GERD, and sleep apnea
Support for reading and for watching TV in bed to remain semi-reclined when on bed rest
Elevates legs to reduce pressure on lower back while sleeping and helps reduce painful swelling due to edema
