Bed Wedge. Not only is it a must for others who like to read in bed like myself, I has a couple other great uses too. Lay it down so the angle isn’t steep but long and it will help you stay propped up. This is especially helpful in acid refux disorders or if you have a hiatal hernia. I have also had patients who suffer with dizziness use the bed wedge to stay more upright while sleeping. You can buy a craft-matic mattress (one that has a remote to elevate it) and spend thousands, or just use the bed wedge pillow.
Yet another great use is as a knee elevator. Place it under the knees for releasing tension in the low back. Flexion in the legs keep the hamstring, gluteus muscles, and lower back muscles relaxed, which is why so many people like this. The triangular shape allows your legs to rest comfortable instead of fighting to get a regular pillow in the right spot.
