As recommended by my orthopedic surgeon I purchased this for post op use. I'm using it immediately and am getting much relief from arthritic pain in my hip and knee before surgery - I love it and thoroughly recommend it. Excellent delivery service - arrived the next day.
Purchased this for my wife but did not realise how long it was. She gave up without using it for one whole sleep. She is only 5ft when she is at full height. It is now awaiting use by whoever may need one in our extended family. Suggest you make them in a different lengths and let the customers choose.
Thank you for your honest review. As this is a medical device we have to be very careful to ensure the safety of our customers.
The Slumber Support is a large cushion which is designed to keep patients stable on their side whilst keeping the operated leg parallel to the bed and fully supported (see the picture). The size of the cushion is important as it anchors the patient safely on their side, reducing the chance of adduction whilst sleeping. A smaller cushion would not achieve this.
I recently had a hip replacement and wanted to sleep on my side . This was amazing and really comfy and makes you feel very safe sleeping on your side . Would definitely recommend
My back was killing me after having to lie flat on my back after total hip replacement. I got very little sleep which is not the best situation for healing to begin. After 2 weeks my surgeon said that I could sleep on my side with support. This pillow makes me feel secure that I will not roll and put my operated hip on the incorrect position. At last I am getting some solid sleep which makes all the difference in the healing process.
Love the support and has helped me after my severe trauma hip replacement. I wish I had bought it earlier as I didn’t sleep for 6 weeks after my op. I don’t use or like the belt, I don’t think it is necessary as the support is large and so stays in place.
