Recovering from surgery? Stick to stacking pillows. It’s cheaper. I spent a lot of time considering this purchase before hand surgery. As I feared, the foam wedge is too narrow and unstable with too shallow an incline. To use while seated, I need to place it atop a stack of pillows and rolled up blankets to keep my hand elevated above my heart. Even when I’m laying down, I need to add extra cushions to increase the height and angle of the wedge. An additional three inhes of width and height would help stabilize the product for use without the arm tray and increase the angle of incline to improve edema cotrol. If I could do it again, I would save my money.

Great for hand surgery post op So it’s basically supportive foam that keeps your hand elevated but it’s far more effective and comfortable than a pillowI’m day 4 of 14 of my hand surgery recovery and I’m very impressed with this inexpensive optionYour arm can shift while sleeping but overall it’s pretty good

Superb Wasn’t sure about his when I ordered it. Was skeptical that it would be sturdy enough. But just as advertised, it’s very sturdy and just the right height for my exercises for my wrist.
