A wedge pillow is an orthopedic pillow with a tapered incline. This triangle pillow is typically made of foam to bring comfort and a slope to elevate your upper body. It’s designed to offer a more comfortable sleep and address a range of health problems, including gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD) and shoulder pain.
Almost all wedge pillows are versatile and can be used in various ways depending on which part of the pillow is placed on the bed. When you put the short side of the wedge against the bed, it makes a good recliner pillow for reading and watching television. Putting the long side of the wedge cushion against the bed makes a nice elevated pillow for sleeping.
