From Bargain to Blowout: Back Rest Bed Cushions

Sunday, 12 May 2013  |  Paul

From Bargain to Blowout: Back Rest Bed Cushions

Back rest cushions for the bed are versatile and comfortable supports that help to improve comfort and posture while sitting or lying in bed. Cushions of this style can provide greatly increased comfort and protection from hard head boards to those who have to spend a lot of the day in bed allowing them to sit upright with ease and comfort as well as having the potential to aid people who suffer from conditions meaning they are unable to lie flat in bed.  They also provide a comfy solution for people who enjoy reading and watching TV in bed without the need for stacking up pillows in an attempt to create a comfortable back rest.

Bargain

Harley Batwing Pillow £26.99

This pillow is specially shaped into three sections to hold you snugly when sitting in bed. The batwing style side sections gently cradle the body in a comfortable position providing lateral support whilst the middle lumbar section offers support to your back. This cushion can be used in either the bed or a chair to increase comfort and support for the upper body. The batwing pillow has a soft cosy feel to it allowing you to snuggle down in its cradling shape and be comfortable supported. A spare pillowcase is also sold separately if needed.

Budget

Harley Bed Relaxer Bed Wedge Support Cushion £39.99

This comfortable bed support is one of our bestselling bed cushions; it can be used in two different ways making it a great value for money versatile option. This cushion can be used either upright against the head board of the bed making reading, eating or watching television easy and comfortable.  The wedge can also be placed lying down under a normal pillow for those who find it uncomfortable to sleep lying flat which provides a gentle  and comfortable tilt to the upper body. Using the bed wedge in this position can be especially helpful for those with respiratory conditions or people suffering from a hiatus hernia. The bed relaxer is available in white, pink or blue and the cosy fleecy covers are also sold separately if more are required.

Blowout

Putnams Memory Foam Bed Wedge £59.99

This bed wedge is luxury bed cushion version made from quality memory foam. This cushion is a great positioning aid which can be used in various ways for different types of support and comfort as with the Harley Bed Relaxer but with added comfort and support of memory foam. It can be used flat with a pillow as before to prop up the user in bed which can ease respiratory problems. Alternatively it can be used as a classic back support allowing the use to sit up straight in bed in an ideal reading and eating position. The wedge shape can be also used at the bottom of the bed either pointing down or upwards to raise and support the leg which can help with varicose veins, swollen ankles, oedema and phlebitis.
