Healthy Avenue, the premium healthcare brand based in Australia, is now highlighting the possible benefits of using memory foam pillow for people suffering from edema.
Edema is one such condition where the body swells up due to the excess fluid trapped in the body's tissues. Although edema can affect any part of the body, it occurs most commonly in the hands, arms, feet, ankles and legs. Edema can be the result of medication, pregnancy or an underlying disease - often congestive heart failure, kidney disease or cirrhosis of the liver.
According to Grant Williamson, spokesperson at Healthy Avenue, “When it comes to a condition like Edema, it is important to find a way to manage the condition in your day to day life, while undergoing treatment for the same. The primary lifestyle issue that people suffering from Edema face is being unable to sleep properly because of their swollen limbs. This is where a knee pillow can really come in handy.”
These pillows are designed to keep the legs in place while one sleeps at night keeping it elevated at a gentle 45-degree angle, thus making sure that there is proper blood circulation within the limbs. The sculpted channels of the pillow further ensure that the legs stay in place, even while one is deep in sleep. By keeping the legs in place, it soothes the nerves in the legs and prevents compression, reducing the chance of fluid build up that is a characteristic of edema.
Their leg pillow for sleeping is already proving to be a huge hit with the buyers, with one customer stating, “I have hip and knee pain that can get pretty intense. This pillow has made such a huge difference. Of an evening if its been a hard day I can prop my legs up. Perfect height and so comfortable. I have noticed when used regularly my number of bad pain days have reduced. So much better than using multiple pillows or folding them in half.”
