The Leg Up pillow is superior for supporting the FULL leg in post surgery recovery or for any leg injury that has caused swelling and discomfort. Also works well for those suffering from cellulitis. In cases of surgery recovery, please follow medical advice regarding elevation.
Size: 15" x 21" Weight: 6 lbs. (approx)
When elevating your leg, the Leg Up provides excellent support all over, not just behind the knee. This is particularly important since supporting the leg only by the knee could reduce mobility during recovery. The multiple positions of the Leg Up make it very effective for high, medium and low elevation for different stages of recovery.
This pillow has the same dimensions as the Armstrong pillow, but is heavier with more buckwheat, making it firmer and more able to support the leg.
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!
