I was impressed by the message in your internet advertisement. I looked at it several times. Thank you.

Service rating : Quick postage, quality products.

Product : Comfortable wedge with a nice quality cover. As with the leg relaxer though, I'm taking a point off for the strong chemical odour of the foam. I had to unzip the cover and leave the foam out for almost a week but it's fine now.

Service rating : Your phone service was good but as I said below, I would have like to have been warned that the foam would off-gas with a strong chemical smell. i get asthma & ezcema so I can't use the leg relaxer, without getting sick.

Product : the wedge also had the same strong odour, but having washed cover twice & whether it is because it is not encased in sheets, it now doesn't smell, so I can use it. I think the wedge is a good product & I'm glad I've bought it, but the products are expensive, so I'm very disappointed with the leg relaxer. also I think the covers should be finished better, as they will possibly fall apart after a few washes.

Service rating : Very prompt service, which I appreciated greatly.

Product : It does the job with reflux, though I can't use it every night, as lying on your side whilst using it is bad for the hips... but if you suffer bad reflux, even the occasional use can help get a good night's sleep.

Pros: Does the job. Gets you to sleep.
Cons: Bad on hips for side-sleepers. Somewhat overpriced (and then you even have to pay extra for the overslip)

Very prompt service on delivery.
Service rating : The process was simple and the delivery time was excellent. Well done.

Product : It is excellent in terms of looks and make - it is taking a little bit of time getting used to sleeping like this but this is not about the product but being propped up. I would have no hesitation in recommending your products!
Service rating : Fast and accurate

Product : Foam is a bit warm to sleep on and would be a little more comfortable with a memory foam layer on top.
Service rating : Not clear on your website what the difference in pillow covers is. I ordered wrong sort and had to order another one to get the right one for me. Pillow took over a week to be delivered, I thought it would have been quicker considering you use a courier. Most couriers offer next day delivery.

Product : Pillow wedge is good. However the second pillow case I ordered is flimsy and not nearly worth the $29.90 you charge for it. I would suggest you use thicker material.
Pillow has definitely allowed both the patient (my husband) and I get a good nights sleep. No waking up to vomit.
Service rating : Very helpful website & description of products. Fast & efficient delivery.

Service rating : Service was great but after persevering with the pillow for a couple of weeks my husband unfortunately found it unsuitable for his use. I think the problem is more with him than the pillow!

Product : The product itself was great quality - no complaints there. He has used the leg wedge over the past few years with succes.
Service rating : As I said, the service was excellent.

Product : Would have liked to be able to vary the height a little more. Would also have liked it to be wider.

Product : My Bed Wedge is GREAT! It enables me to get up out of bed very easily,where as before I was having trouble getting out. It has also taken the pressure away from my lower back and I am now on 3 weekly visits to my Chiropractor instead of twice weekly with rotated hips. I also find that when I wake up in the morning, I am still in the same position as when I went to bed, which is fantastic, as my spine is in a much better position all night. In all.................Thank you Therapeutic!!!!!!!!!

Product : For the price, it is only low quality foam. But the design is excellent.
Service rating : Couldn't fault the service

Product : Comfortable, angle is just right.
Service rating : All equipment came quickly and was easy to choose from the web site.

Product : It helped my husband when he had lung cancer to sleep at a good angle but towards the end of his life, the wedge at the base of the pillow was too rigid for him.
Service rating : A little too high for a comfortable sleep, but very useful for post-surgical recovery during the day. Expensive.

Product : Pure cotton would be preferable to pollycotton.
Service rating : service was excellent

ask a question
The adjustable Contoured Bed Wedge is popular because it allows you to rest or sleep at an angle of around It also features a sleeve which you can delete to lower the angle for personal comfort and medical requirement.
The Contoured Bed Wedge pillow is longer than most wedges available and supports the head, chest and shoulders. Simply raising the head on pillow causes the body to bend in the middle and actually makes reflux worse. When not sleeping on your Contoured Bed Wedge, lean against it for reading or watching TV. It will slide easily under most beds. The bed wedge has a built in scallop shape to help keep you in position and is also adjustable for two different sleeping angles.
No, you may sleep on your side or on your back and you will still get a better night's sleep.
The Contoured Bed Wedge pillow comes in a removable quilted or waterproof cover. These covers are not designed for regular washing. It is preferable to use a tailor made poly cotton covers on the wedge.
Yes. Most people sleep comfortably when placing their own pillow on the Contoured Bed Wedge pillow. Try sleeping with and without your pillow and see what is more comfortable for you.
Yes. Water beds do not give as much support as regular mattresses, but the Contoured Bed Wedge pillow will still be effective.
People with GERD, reflux, hiatus hernias, asthma, respiratory diseases, snoring problems, heart patients, pregnant women, or anyone who will sleep better elevated.
It may take a night or two to get used to the benefits of your new sleeping position. Most people find it only takes one night to love their Contoured Bed Wedge.
Health regulations prohibit the return of pillows. Contoured Bed Wedge pillows and pillow covers are guaranteed against defects.
The short answer is that it can and many people have put bed wedge under mattress. However it is more specifically designed to go on top of the mattress as the extra weight from the mattress may cause the bed wedge to have a lesser lifespan in that it may squash down more quickly. Please give us a call to discuss if you have any questions.
Our trad and memory foam products are all Aussie made and shouldnt have an odour though new foams usually have a new foam smell. The wedge is not memory foam as that would not give enough support but a memory foam insert can be added so as to give the feel of memory foam. Please contact office 0n 03 8585 6685 shoud you have any further questions at all. Warm regards Brett.
Hi Kath, Dimensions of the pillow are 68 cm wide x 75 cm long x 25 cm high x 4 cm at lowest end in middle (7cm on lowest end on side). There is also an additional memory foam sleeve that can be inserted into the top of the bed wedge pillow to give it a little extra comfort. This is a new item and if you would like to order please contact your nearest stockist. Regards, Brett.
