Posted on: February 14th, 2012 by LAMedicalBlogger

Sleeping on a pillow wedge take the pressure off your back and relieves the tension you were carrying with you throughout the day.

Relaxes Muscles

Your neck and back no longer need to support your head and your completely relax allowing you to feel refreshed in the morning.

Improved Breathing

Sleeping on a pillow wedge improves your breathing by keeping your body position the same throughout the night, leaving you to feel more rested.

Easier for the Caregiver

Pillow wedges make moving the patient much easier.  These wedges keep the patient steady and prevent the patient from waking when changing positions throughout the night because there is no need to refluff pillows.

These same pillow wedges are also great for propping up the leg or knee to improve circulation through the legs and reduce fluid build-up.
