We offer the waterproof version of the low incline Bed Wedge to cater for those requiring greater protection from fluid ingress such as incontinence or excessive night perspiration.
Developed initially as a bespoke item for one of our customers who requested a lower incline to elevate the upper torso. Although relief is achieved with all our wedges ,for some the lower incline and larger surface area make for a more comfortable nights sleep particularly for those with a larger body frame.
Irrespective of the incline as this is personal choice, what’s important is that your head, shoulders and torso are supported at the correct elevation to alleviate symptoms of acid reflux, heartburn, respiratory conditions, sinusitis, hiatus hernia and other related problems. Elevation allows gravity to work well keeping stomach acid and food down, drains sinuses and opens airways.
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 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.
Our bed wedge is constructed from high density CM) foam which has a laminated layer of ‘eggcrate’ design Memory Foam to increase airflow , fitted with a Vapour permeable zip off cover for added protection , a simple hand wash and dry is all that’s required.to keep the wedge clean and fresh
