- This system works for me at 5ft. 2 in. Review by nikki
This wedge system works well for me. I injured my lumbar area a few years ago and just recently fell, twisting my back!!
The support is gentle, just firm enough!

- Just didn't work for me Review by Cathy B.
I was so excited about receiving this product, hoping that I would finally have a good night's sleep. Unfortunately that was not to be. My back pain radiates from my tail bone and while the wedges did help to alleviate this pain, my upper back and neck became stiff and sore. Additionally, I am just 5'2" and I found the leg wedge just too high for me to comfortably rest my knees. When the wedge is open it is quite clumsy and takes up so much room on the bed that my husband does not have much room, and I need to use my own covers. Perhaps I can get the wedges cut to size and that would help. In the meantime, I would suggest that this system come in additional sizes.
On a different note, it took over one month for me to receive the item (after several attempts to find out how long before it arrives). And now I see, just one month later that the item has been reduced in price. Oh well

- Highly recommended Review by DD
I bought this set 10 years ago for post-surgical recovery. It helped me sleep with a minimum of pain. I have used it after back injuries and anything that has required head elevation, and it's still in great shape. However, the incline on the leg wedge is a little too long for me when sitting in the upright position. (I'm 5'4".) This was easily solved with a smaller inexpensive leg wedge, also from RTB.

- Daughter can't sleep without it Review by Jerri
I bought this entire system for our daughter who is extremely ill with cancer throughout her little body. I had her oncologist review it before purchasing it and he said yes, absolutely that was what she needed. She cannot sleep without this system. Even when she has been back in the hospital we have carried it and used it there as well. It has been more than worth the money just to see our daughter be able to get some rest and sleep. Definitaly worth the money!!

- Absolutely Miraculous! Review by VICTORIA
In 2002 I underwent 14 hours of spinal surgery on L3-L5. I had one disc removed, a bone graft from my left hip, and 2 rods, 6 pedicle screws, spacer brackets, wires and a permanent battery (to stimulate fusion) placed. Since then, though I have regained my ability to walk, I am always in pain. I bought a TempurPedic mattres, and have tried all sorts of supports in order to sleep well and not wake up to severe pain and crippling muscle spasms - to no avail. This wedge system (I bought the cervical pillow as well) is amazing. It took me a few nights to adjust to it, but this morning was the first time in more than 15 years that I got out of bed without the assistance of pain killers and muscle relaxers BECAUSE I WAS NOT IN PAIN AT ALL! I cannot believe how well this works, I feel absolutely amazing!

- Love these :) Review by Andre
I use them for marathon gaming sesions and then rise feeling rested :D
I used to put them on a flat futon facing the TV which works great but I got rid of it and will probably just use a big pillow or mattress that I can move around to where i wish to lounge lol
