New Folding Bed Wedge Help Acid Reflux

At Contour Living keeping customers comfortable and healthy is their number one priority. That’s why they came up with the all new folding wedge cushion. The folding wedge cushion is designed to support the head and chest in an upright, slightly angled position comfortably. This design allows anybody to keep their  upper body raised during sleep.

This design provides many benefits to the user, such as providing a raised body position which is recommended forreducing symptoms from acid reflux, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), heartburn and other digestive conditions. Acid Reflux is a condition in which the stomach acids rise up into the esophagus; this is caused by a faulty valve that separates the stomach contents from the esophagus. GERD is short for gastroesophageal reflux disease and is a condition in which the liquid content of the stomach backs up into the esophagus.

Heartburn has nothing to do with the heart, but rather is an irritation of the esophagus caused by acid that comes up from the stomach. Heartburn is also a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease which is more serious in nature.

By using the folding wedge you can prevent the acids from coming up into your esophagus, because the folding wedge will elevate your head and chest in an upright position. This is of great benefit to the user and can provide a restful and comfortable sleep. Normally when patients are diagnosed with any of the above conditions they are advised to keep their heads elevated and not lay down right after a meal.

Even if you don’t have any known condition, the folding wedge provides gentle support to help you sleep comfortably. The wedge is designed to fold fast in a compact fashion which makes it easier to store. The folding wedge provides gradual support, eases breathing and sinus pressure and also soothes muscle tension and helps support the spine. As you can see the folding wedge has many benefits and can make a great gift to anyone.

The folding wedge is available in 3 heights 7 inch, 10 inch and 12 inch. Each wedge cushion is 32” long for a gradual incline and 24” wide for one person to use; this is longer than any of their competitor’s wedges. The folding wedge comes with zippered velour cover and is machine washable.
