Acid reflux (also known as GERD) occurs when acid from the stomach leaks up into the gullet (esophagus). This is a particular problem at night when lying down and can cause many uncomfortable symptoms ranging from heartburn to extreme chest pains.
Whilst medication is available, many sufferers are not happy continually taking pills night after night. If these symptoms sound at all familiar, you are not alone. However, you'll be pleased to know there is a solution with our range of RefluxEase Acid Reflux Wedge Pillows and products.
Having suffered with acid reflux for a number of years and found that any number of ordinary pillow permutations always produced an aching back I decided to look for an alternative. My research eventually resulted in the production of the RefluxEase acid reflux wedge pillow.
The RefluxEase is a high quality foam wedge shaped upper torso elevator. The shape and dimensions have been systematically designed to provide the maximum elevation and lessen the 'slide down' effect. The dimensions have been calculated to fit comfortably within any double bed and just as importantly, to leave plenty of space for the non-user.
The RefluxEase Premier has been designed with a lumbar support. This shape closely follows the natural shape of the spine and therefore gives therapeutic support along the complete spinal length. The user can then choose to use one or two normal pillows to achieve the maximum cervical support to aid a comfortable sleeping position.
The RefluxEase evolved using the latest technology. We included a two-inch layer of Memory Foam into the RefluxEase design, resulting in the RefluxEase Supreme. This elevator incorporates all the design features of the RefluxEase Premier with the added luxury and the excellent supportive properties of Memory Foam.
