The Armstrong pillow is ideal for supporting arms following injury or surgery, a particularly challenging limb to elevate comfortably for long periods. It can also easily be placed behind the shoulder for added comfort & support.
Size: 15" x 21" Weight: 5 lbs. (approx)
The Armstrong is the same size as our Leg Up pillow, but with a pound less buckwheat, making it softer and more ideal and flexible for supporting your arm.
For back sleepers, the Armstrong pairs best with the Bookend for cervical (neck) support. For side sleepers, see the Bookend pillow.
Remember: Poised Pillows cannot be washed – but the pillowcases can! Be sure to add a custom-fitted pillowcase to each pillow you own. Please add one extra day for production before you can expect your order to arrive, as each Poised Pillowcase is made to order.

Our buckwheat pillows are ideal to support your body ANYTIME, but especially in rehab and recovery situations, such as post-op, physical therapy, chiropractic, or just plain rest from injury.
Poised Pillows provide soft, stable support right where you need it. The buckwheat hulls allow the pillow to conform to your body and hold its shape while staying cool and comfortable. All of our buckwheat pillows are easily configured into 3 positions: flat, horizontal standing or vertical standing, giving you options for elevation and support.
We've had people use these pillows to rest and recover from a wide variety of health-related issues, including: knee surgery, varicose veins, circulation, upper arm pain, back pain, shoulder injury, breaks and sprains, cellulitis, cardiac surgery, mastectomy and even cancer-related issues. They are also fantastic for pregnancy, providing support in the various positions needed in this uniquely uncomfortable time!
The buckwheat used in every Poised Pillow is: – Organically grown – Hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites and pests – Thoughtfully researched & hand-selected to be ideal for therapeutic pillows – Milled carefully to keep the shape of the buckwheat hull, which allows air to move freely and keeps your pillow cool – US-grown, milled and air-cleaned with no chemicals, pesticides or fumigation, as in many foreign-grown supplies
