The Putnams Bed Wedge is our top pick for sleeping on an incline, providing you with combined support, comfort, and relaxation when in bed.

How Can the Putnams Bed Wedge Prevent My Acid Reflux/GERD?

If you suffer from acid reflux or gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), then you'll know how unpleasant the feeling of acid rising from your stomach while you sleep can be. Inclined sleeping, or sleeping at a raised angle, can help to prevent this from occurring. The Putnams Bed Wedge allows you to sleep comfortably at a slight tilt to reduce your risk of suffering from acid reflux.

The bed wedge is an ideal wedge-shaped pillow that can be placed under your pillow for tilted sleeping to reduce the effects of the following:

  • Acid reflux
  • Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD/GORD)
  • Glaucoma
  • Heartburn
  • Hiatus hernia (oesophagitis)
  • Oesophageal motility
  • Respiratory problems
  • Rhinitis

Can I Use the Putnams Bed Wedge to Elevate My Legs?

The Putnams Bed Wedge is a great choice for leg bed elevation. Place it at the bottom of your bed to use the wedge as a leg pillow raiser to relieve symptoms of the following conditions:

  • Oedema
  • Phlebitis
  • Swollen ankles
  • Varicose veins

Can I Use the Putnams Bed Wedge After an Operation?

You may not wish to use the Putnams Wedge every night, but it can prove invaluable for easing your discomfort following an operation. The bed wedge pillow can help you to rest comfortably after the following surgery procedures:

  • Hip replacement
  • Hysterectomy
  • Spinal surgery

The Putnams Wedge may also be suitable as a post-operative support following operations not listed here; we recommend that you check with your doctor if you are unsure about whether or not the bed wedge would provide you with the comfort and elevation you require.

Can I Use the Bed Wedge as a Back Support Cushion for Bed?

Absolutely! There are few things more enjoyable than relaxing in bed of an evening or first thing in the morning, and with the Putnams Wedge you can relax in total comfort. It can be used as a bed wedge back support for extra comfort when watching television, reading, having a cup of tea or eating breakfast in bed. It is especially helpful if you have a hard or uncomfortable headboard that cannot be comfortably leaned against.

The Putnams Bed Wedge Can Help You To Relax In Bed

Is the Putnams Bed Wedge Made from Memory Foam?

While the bed wedge here is made from standard foam rather than memory foam, if you're looking for a memory foam bed wedge then the Putnams Memory Foam Bed Wedge is your perfect choice. It offers all the same great benefits as the wedge, but also features two layers of dual density foam for added support and comfort.

How Do I Sleep on the Bed Wedge?

You can sleep on the Bed Wedge on your front, side or back. In fact, you can sleep on it in any way you like, as it is designed to make you sleep better rather than force you to sleep in a certain way. You can even place another pillow on top of the wedge for extra comfort.

Can I Wash the Bed Wedge?

As the Putnam Bed Wedge is made from foam and is therefore not suitable for deep cleaning, it is provided with a white zipped removable polycotton cover. This cover can be removed for hand washing, ensuring you can continue to use the wedge comfortably and hygienically.

We also stock spare covers for the Putnams Bed Wedge. This way, you can continue to enjoy the benefits of your bed wedge with your spare cover while the other cover is being washed and dried!

How Big Is the Bed Wedge?

The original bed wedge is 24" wide, 30" long, and 6" deep. Ideal for use by most as an adult bed wedge, the full dimensions are as follows:

  • WxHxD: 24 x 30 x 6" (76 x 61.5 x 15cm)

Not for me
Sunday, 10 March 2019  | 

As much as I wanted this product to work for me because of LPR/Silent reflux, it completely put my back, hip and heel out was put in the loft in four days. If I could have returned it and got at least part of my money back I would. For anyone with cervical, thoracic or lumbar issues I would suggest you seek alternative routes .... or at least a doctor's advice.

Undisturbed sleep at last!
Monday, 24 September 2018  | 

I wish I had purchased this Putnams Bed Wedge years ago. My wife has suffered from acid reflux for many years and medication had not prevented her from being sick nearly every night. However since buying this bed wedge she has not been sick once. This is an excellent product!
