1. Lounge Doctor Elevating Leg Rest Pillow
Looking for an efficient elevating leg rest to effectively counter your leg swelling or other injuries? The Lounge Doctor Elevating Leg rest pillow is made precisely for you. With its patented shape and an ergonomic design crafted by a Board of certified vascular surgeons, the pillow is well suited to improve your venous health to increase blood flow.
Where most other leg elevation pillows allow your legs to slip off them, the Lounge Doctor effectively prevents that from happening. It is made using highly resilient open-cell foam and incorporates an anti-slip grip dot bottom to prevent your legs from shifting. The less your leg shifts, the faster it will thus heal.
Though made of foam, the Lounge Doctor’s leg rest is made ultra-durable with the help of its innovative cover. First off, it is fully zippered which means the fabric cover won’t shift from the pillow and your foam leg rest stays safe inside. Secondly, the cover’s fabric is moisture and stain resistant so that you return to a clean leg rest, which requires minimum maintenance.
What makes this elevating leg pillow efficient is its ability to utilize gravity in an attempt to offer you relief. Its ergonomic design makes sure that your legs are elevated above your heart to lower the venous blood pressure by ensuring an efficient blood flow.
The Lounge Doctor leg rest offers a 40 degrees tilt to your thighs, which happens to be simply perfect. Any more tilt can cause kinking of your blood vessels which can thus make you uncomfortable. Similarly, your knees are bent at 20 degrees to relax the tendons. Any more extension can then again result in an obstruction of your blood flow.
Since keeping your lower leg flat can cause your blood fluid to pool and increase blood pressure, the Lounge Doctor thus provides a 15 degrees incline. This helps you take advantage of gravity and enhance your blood flow.
All in all, the entire pillow is contoured in a way to match the curves of your legs, which helps the leg rest to divide your leg’s weight equally across the pillow’s surface. You, therefore, sleep more comfortably knowing that the swelling in your feet will be gone within a few days.
