Service rating : Robyn was excellent in solving a shipping problem not associated with your company!Product : Pillow wedge was the perfect solution to elevate my significant other to help with her congestive heart failure symptoms during sleep! Ordered a second wedge for her Mother, the removable wedge insert is a great idea, allowed her Mother's wedge to be adjusted to a lesser angle.
Thanks for the great product!

Service rating : This Australian made pillow was delivered from Australia to New Zealand in less than a week.
Thank you for outstanding product and customer service.Product : It is exceptional quality and highly effective in the relief of severe oesophageal refluxt
The design and comfort is superb.
Great advantage in being able to adjust the height.
Service rating : I ordered online so had no interaction verbally. The response was efficient and prompt.Product : The pillow has been a lifesaver for me - I can sleep again!
i bought this for my mum and she finds it very comfortable and I think does help her with her reflux issues. Just one thing the insert wedge which makes it higher was torn when I took it out as it was still attached at the seam and so very flimsy at the thin side that when I removed it it just tore a small section off the thin edge. Fortunately we don't use it with the wedge as it was too high for mum to be comfortable.
Service rating : Delivery occurred the next day.Product : See above
Service rating : This is a decent company with great products. I would highly recommend them to people that need better support and/or positioning aides. I brought 3 items for a family member who is very ill and they have provided a lot of relief for them whilst resting in bed - which they often are due to their illness. The prices are expensive, but it is worth it to provide relief for the person suffering. I would definitely buy again. Only issue I had was finding a cover as the ones you can buy from this website have previously been noted to be of poor quality, which my family member also found, but, its better than nothing.
But still think it would be a really great idea for this company to create a variety of colored pillow covers for the pillows and positioning aides as they are unusual shapes and sizes and its difficult to find someone to make a cover for you and get the sizing perfect. If the company takes this on, it would fantastic if you could make the covers in a high thread count with quality stitching, as well as a flannelette option for colder months for people who use the positioning aides every day. As for colors, I would love to see in both a high thread count cotton sheet and the flannelette a white, cream, beige, blue to start with, and if they prove popular maybe you could do custom ordered colors?Product : I brought this as a gift for a family member with severe chronic reflux to the point a peg feed is being discussed as the valve to hold food down doesn't work properly so when they lean forward or bend down for too long the food just comes out, they also have a number of other illness's causing them severe chronic pain. This contoured bed wedge has been a fantastic help to them, the amount of vomiting has decreased over 60% and they no longer wake up at night with the sudden urge to vomit. They also had difficulty keeping medication down in the morning as they would take the meds and lie down as their pain is often more severe in the morning, but then gravity and that malfunctioning valve would allow the water and meds to flow up and they would vomit them up, but now this also has been reduced by at least 90%. If you have reflux anything similar to this, I urge you to buy this, you wont be disappointed. They also stated the cushion is comfortable for their back, because prior if they were in bed in pain it would be a painful mission to sit up and drink something at times, but now they have to lean up much less to have a drink causing them less pain. I really thank you for this cushion, it has made a significant positive impact for my family member.

Service rating : Delivery was very quick, and the packaging was good.Product : It's good, but I keep sliding off and waking with my head and pillow resting on the bottom edge. I'm trying to work out a way of staying up. Any suggestions? I don't think I can velcro myself on.
Service rating : the postage was bit too expensive; service was good!Product : Wedge pillow is excellent, it helps a lot to my reflux, i definitely sleep better with it.
Service rating : I cannot find anywhere to rate your service. However, the service was 100%.Product : I purchased the wedge pillow because I have acid reflux. However, a wonderful additional benefit is that I have 70% less pain with arthritis in my neck, shoulders and parts of my back, when sleeping. Before using the pillow I was in pain most of the night.
Service rating : Super-fast delivery. Super-fast accurate detailed response, for my product enquiry. Excellent pricingProduct : Excellent, premium quality product!

Service rating : Easy ordering and fast delivery to New Zealand. Excellent service.Product : Happy with the product - good size and comfortable to lie on.

Very prompt and quick service.
Service rating : Excellent! Excellent quality products, kind service, and speedy delivery. I had placed a large order online, and found the Steri-plus cover on the bed wedge to not suit my hubby's needs as well as the quilted cover might have. I called and explained, and instead of charging me for an additional order of a quilted cover, I was sent one for free as a replacement to the Steri-plus cover. THAT is true quality--and most generous and compassionate--service! Thank you so much!!Product : Excellent product. The bed wedge is perfect for reflux sufferers or for those with throat, esophagus, or stomach cancer who need to sleep at a slant or in a semi-upright position. I found that the Steri-plus cover was a bit too slippery (even with the overslip over it) and did not seem to "breathe" well. The quilted cover proved to be perfect for my hubby's needs.

Brilliant products.Product : Purchased the bed wedge for husband as suffers sleep apnoea - noisy snoring for years. He now sleeps all night without snoring. He was very sceptical about the wedge but now a very happy chappy.

Service rating : Delivery was very fast and instructions on where to deliver the pillow were followed.

Service rating : Excellent operators sorted out my troubled attempt to make an order via the internet. I am very appreciative.
I was impressed by the message in your internet advertisement. I looked at it several times. Thank you.Product : Could not be any better. Husband has chronic heart failure and is often short of breath. Used the pillow on the afternoon it arrived and he was a happy man - I was a very happy woman and we both have had better sleep since the pillow arrived last week. I am very , very grateful.
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 : The pillow was the best thing that I have purchased for my 86 year old mother. She is now very comfortable.Product : Very comfortable.
Service rating : Speedy despatch, very efficient.Product : Very happy with this product. Would not hesitate to recommend the bed wedge to anyone who suffers from gastric reflux.
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.
I have swallowing problems because of a brain injury. For two years I struggled to sleep without intense pain in my neck/swallowing. I wish I got this pillow ages ago - I have been sleeping pain free and almost feel human again! That is priceless.
Service rating : Fast delivery!!Product : Still getting used to it but no reflux which is good
Service rating : The service was excellent. I was able to track the whereabouts of the parcel at all times.Product : Love it. It is beautifully contoured and is very comfortable to sleep on. Very happy with the service and product.
Service rating : Fast, effective serviceProduct : As described, good quality
Service rating : Very suited to requirement for easing refluxProduct : Excellent response to delivery within 24 hrs
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)
Service rating : Very fast despatch & delivery! fantasticProduct : Very helpful - we're slipping down a bit which means not getting full benefit of being raised, - we might need a foot stop too.
Service rating : Good quality and serviceProduct : good quality
Service rating : I was very impressed that I had my order within 4 working days of ordering online.Product : This my second wedge pillow - have used it for about 5 years because of my reflux. Take it everywhere with me literally can't sleep without it.
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 accurateProduct : 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.Product : Fantastic sleeping position while recovering from back problems over several weeks. Still use it, cut to half height under mattress to raise head a little - greatly reduces morning face puffiness & sinus problems.
Service rating : Excellent product, excellent purchase and deliveryProduct : This has really helped with my discomfort due to reflux (GERD)
Fantastic service - had a query and they were very efficient and thorough in their response. Friendly and only too happy to help.
Service rating : great thank youProduct : Thanks for your fabulous product. It has really reduced my reflux problem.
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.
Service rating : Turnaround time fast and responsiveProduct : Great. Exactly what I am looking for.
Service rating : Great serviceProduct : Fast service, great product. I sleep in peace at last !!!
Service rating : Great fast service, good productProduct : great in helping with back pain and sinus problems when sleeping
Service rating : Fast service , smooth transactionProduct : Good product
Service rating : I find that the service and delivery of my Therapeutic products is very fast and efficient.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!!!!!!!!!

Can you explain your wedge?
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.
Why is the Contoured Bed Wedge pillow better than other wedges on the market?
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.
Do I have to sleep on my back to get the benefits of the Contoured Bed Wedge pillow?
No, you may sleep on your side or on your back and you will still get a better night's sleep.
How do I cover my Contoured Bed Wedge pillow?
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.
Can I still use my own pillow when sleeping on the Contoured Bed Wedge pillow?
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.
Can I use the Contoured Bed Wedge pillow on a water bed?
Yes. Water beds do not give as much support as regular mattresses, but the Contoured Bed Wedge pillow will still be effective.
Who can benefit from sleeping on Contoured Bed Wedge?
People with GERD, reflux, hiatus hernias, asthma, respiratory diseases, snoring problems, heart patients, pregnant women, or anyone who will sleep better elevated.
Does it take time to get used to sleeping on Contoured Bed Wedge?
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.
Is Contoured Bed Wedge returnable?
Health regulations prohibit the return of pillows. Contoured Bed Wedge pillows and pillow covers are guaranteed against defects.
Do you have a memory foam bed wedge?
In our testing we have found that a full memory foam bed wedge would end up being prohibitively expensive but more importantly would not give the correct level of support required for the bed wedge to be effective as a sleeping and comfort aid. We do however have an optional memory foam sleeve at 3cm thick which can be added to the product to give a memory foam feel but still provide the support required. For more information about the memory foam bed wedge sleeve which will give the feeling of a full memory foam bed wedge please contact head office on 03 8585 6685 or your state agent.
Does the Bed Wedge help with snoring?
We have had some pretty good feedback with the bed wedge helping snoring but i think getting of ones back will have a better result and get on ones side so i usually suggest of a contour pillow of some description used along with a side sleeper which will help to stay on ones side. If this doesn't work then often the bed wedge is a good option to try down the track. Hope this info helps.
In February this year I was diagnosed with secondary liver cancer after earlier having had major surgery for a very rare bowel cancer. I have really struggled to sleep since that time due to the chemo drugs and their effects and pain.
The past two nights I have used the pyramid pillow and for the first time since February have actually been able to have more than an hours sleep at a time and I am not getting up feeling like my back and neck have been broken as I struggled with several pillows.
The pillow is extremely comfortable for sitting and reading in bed. When I lie down to sleep I move the pyramid pillow down a bit and use a very soft pillow on top………bliss.
I can’t thank you enough.
I'm looking for a pillow for my dad- he has a heart condition and he snores
Usually when people have a heart condition of some description they are recommended to use a product that puts their heart above the rest of their body - which takes pressure off it - by encouraging gravity to help with the pumping of blood. In this case our main recommendation would be the bed wedge support. It will elevate the body and be on such an angle that there is relief for the heart but it is also comfortable enough to sleep.
The snoring aspect is a more difficult one and normally this is result of weight and back sleeping as well as other factors. If your Dad were to get a pillow he was comfortable to side sleep on then this should help his snoring. The complete sleeper original is one of our most popular pillows and usually a good recommendation for those hoping to reduce snoring. It gets some pretty good feedback from most users.
The bedwedge can be used for side sleeping either at its normal angle or with the reduced angle with the insert removed but it might take a little getting used to for your Dad. Please let me know what else we can assist with at any time.
My doctor told me to purchase a wedge pillow because of my acid reflux. What type should I by. Do I also need to buy a special pillow?
The pillow i would recommend for you is the Bed Wedge in Quilted cover (and cotton slip). It is a really well received product that works very well for GERD and ACID Reflux. The quilted cover is the more popular version but if you require a waterproof cover for any reason the Sterri-plus might be worth considering. Please call on 03 8585 6685 if we can be of more assistance.
Hi, just looking at your contoured bed wedge - angled sleeping wedge. Does this include the item in the photos for the legs also?
The bedwedge does just come as a wedge on its own. It does however come with the option of a memory foam insert to go on the top for added comfort. You will need to call us on 03 8585 6685 to have the memory foam segment added for you complimentary.
The other product is the leg relaxer leg support and the pillow used in the images is naturelle low pillow.
How can I tell that this is the right size and slope for me?
We do have a removeable insert in the product so the angle can be slightly lowered if need be to 15 degrees which might suit a little if you find the Bed wedge too high initially. We do at 18 degrees the product with insert because we found this to be the highest angle where one can really comfortably sleep. If higher is required for the resting then people have found by placing two pillow across the base of the bedwedge they can again raise the angle but also keep the product stable. Please call if we can be of further assistance.
Acid reflux pillow
We have very good success with our clients using the contoured bed wedge to help with their acid reflux conditions. This would definitely the product i would recommend. It can be adjusted to be used at a lower angle but in truth i think most people find it most suitable as it is.
Can you please explain the difference between the quilted and sterri plus wedge pillows
Basically we always recommend the quilted version as it is more comfortable.
The only time we recommend the sterri plus version is if you require a water proof product or if product is being used by a number of different users.
Please call if i can be of further assistance.
Hi, I have sleep apnea and acid reflux problem. This means I have to have my head elevated when I sleep. Otherwise I constantly cough and clear my throat. I have been trying to use 3 ordinary pillows to prop me up, but this has been unsuccessful. Can you recommend a product for my situation.
The pillow we have the most amount of success with is the contoured bed wedge which is purposefully designed to put you on an elevated angle and help with you acid reflux. It is quite comfortable to sleep on and we get very good reviews overall. Happy to chat further if you require but here is the link to the product and i think you will find it very helpful.
Hi does your contoured bed wedge help with back pain and pressure relief in the bed ridden elderly
The bed wedge will help with comfort in regards to sitting in bed and being on an angle but i cant say how it will help with your back pain as there are so many different reasons for back pain. If the pain is being caused by lying down horizontally then being on an angle might help. We can put a layer of memory foam in with the bed wedge also which will help with pressure relief but again it really depends on where the pressure is. Happy to chat further if you would like to call us on 03 8585 6685.
Can the bed wedge be placed under the bed mattress
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.
Is this wedge pillow memory foam? also is there any chemical odour at all? I ask as i purchased one from another Aust. manufacturer which did & it caused a severe asthma attack..I have been looking for another one preferably Aust made so i'm hoping yours will be suitable, thanks.
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.
Can you please tell me the dimensions of the memory foam wedge pillow
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.
I suffer from GERD. DO you have an under mattress bed wedge that fits a queen size bed. They have them in America and its the full size of the bed with a 7 degree angle. The one I looked at was from Refluxguard.
Or if you don't have anything suitable. Would you know or anyone that does them.
We dont at present have a wedge to go under the mattress. We have found that given a lot of beds are quite rigid (ie inner spring) the dont tend to bend at the right angle for a wedge like this to work. We find that the contoured bed wedge works very well and is quite easy to move around also. I have looked into the under mattress option and will see if we can get something that may work in a similar fashion. If you would like to view our wedge for your convenience please let me know and i can recommend a nearby stockist. Please call 03 8585 6685 and we can assist your questions.
Does the contour bed wedge come with the pillow you see in the photo. If so/not what is that little pillow called
The Bedwedge does not come with the pillow featured in the picture. That pillow is the naturelle low pillow. As most people will be resting on their back while using the bed wedge the naturelle low pillow is a great option and very well received when being used with the bed wedge.
Can I still use the bed wedge send sleep on my side, I have Scleroderma and am a restless sleeper.
While more specifically designed for back sleepers the bed wedge is often used for side sleeping. Most users will take out the wedge in the middle of the product to decrease the angle marginally for more comfort when sleeping on your side. I don't know how it will help exactly for scleroderma but sufferers of many conditions including GERD, Reflux, Bronchial infections, Fluid on the lungs and many other back related conditions do find the product to be of good benefit.
I have been suffering from GERD for over 15 years, I was diaognised with Barrett's esophagus 12 months ago. I have been using 2 pillows to sleep, but still wake up with the heart burn. Will this wedge pillow really help? And what exactly should I get, the list of things on the drop down list is confusing.
We have really good feedback regarding the use of our bedwege as a sleeping age for those that suffer Gerd and i have discussed the product with those who have Barretts oesopahagus in the past who have purchased the products in relation to the Bed Wedge in helping with the condition. I havent heard back the feedback with regards to the Barretts but normally if a product does not have any positive benefits we will hear back from a client for something else that may. There is also a memory foam layer that is now available to go on top of the bedwedge to give you a memory foam bed wedge feel but still provide good support. Please contact us on 03 8585 6685 and we can help you regarding any questions on GERD and perhaps you can let us know what might help you with your Barretts esophagus. Regards, Brett.
Hi, does your bed wedge for GERD come in memory foam? If so, how much is it?
While not coming as a full memory foam wedge which would not be supportive enough we do supply memory foam top layer which can be either added to the product for a little bit more extra comfort and that memory foam feel if you require. Please call us if you would like to have this added with your order.
Warm regards, Brett Parnham.
I have used your bed wedge and pillows with great success.
I am seeking a "wedge" suitable for keeping sheets/blankets off my feet.
The one I have been using for 25 years is actually disintegrating and having trouble sourcing another. Do you stock this product?
Yes we do stock this product at all times and we can send out to you if you would like. Please give us a call on 03 8585 6685. Warm regards. Brett.
Do you have a showroom for your wedge support cushion? And how is the sleeper stopped from slipping down the wedge?
Yes we have places where the products can be viewed all over Australia. Please contact our head office on 03 8585 6685 and we will be able to advise of a showroom nearby to you. Sliding down the wedge is not usually an issue. If it is you can either lower the angle of the product by removing the insert or simply use a sheet that is not too slippery and pyjama bottoms that are not to slipper so that you are less likely to slip. The bed seat and also the leg relaxer are often used alongside the products to prevent going further down the bed.
I need to find a wedge support for my mum. She suffers from Rotator Cuff Tears, Massive Cuff Tears, Subscapularis Tendon Tears all of them are partial. I need good soft support for her to be able to sleep at night. She is always in pain during her sleep.
I would recommend the bedwedge with an extra layer of memory foam. Please call us and we can discuss the needs of your mother in more detail on 03 8585 6685.
Will this wedge help reduce Reflux from hiatus hernia?
The feedback we get regarding the bed wedge suggests that it helps with most reflux though i cant comment specifically on hiatus hernia. The angle is comfortable enough to continue to sleep but also enough to provide relief. The angle can be changed by removing the insert if a lower angle is preferred. Please give us a call on 03 8585 6685 and happy to help further with all of your questions.
Warm regards, Brett.
Looking for the best options for sleep with gord, hiatus hernia and Barrett's esophagus .
This product gets very good reviews for both Gord and Barretts esophagus. I am not sure about the hiatus hernia but from my brief reading i cant see any downside to using the product. The product can also be adjusted to lower the angle if that is your preference also. Please call us on 03 8585 6685 and we can help with any questions that you may have. Warm regards, Brett.
Is there still odours with the product.?
Is slipping down really a problem?
I haven't heard of their ever being an issue with odour on the product to be honest. The bed wedge is an open cell foam and is completely inert after foaming has been completed. It uses a CO2 as a blowing agent (which gives the foam its buyoncy) so there shouldnt be any odour at all. Please give us a call if you have any further questions at all. (03) 8585 6685.
