MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge
The MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge can be purchased on its own for those who require their own specialty head pillow or already sleep with a full-length body pillow. For maximum relief, we recommend the full MedCline Reflux Relief System as the MedCline Therapeutic Body Pillow is important to ensure side sleeping (so you can’t roll to your back during the night). While sleeping at an angle, it is also important to sleep with the long limb of a body (or smaller) pillow between your knees for added comfort.
To be used with your own head or body pillow, the Advanced Positioning Wedge offers its patented arm pocket that keeps you from sliding down during the night, while removing pressure from your downside arm and shoulder. The inclined + left side sleeping position created only by MedCline products has been validated in 5 independent clinical trials to be the most effective for 100% natural relief from heartburn, regurgitation, coughing, choking, nausea, and the many other distressing symptoms of acid reflux/GERD, as well as providing protection from prolonged acid exposure…all while you sleep!
The Advanced Positioning Wedge takes up ½ of a queen-size bed (30” wide) and, while the left side is typically best for reflux relief, the Advanced Positioning Wedge can be used on your left or right side.
Key features of the MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge include:
Clinically proven position for superior relief. Clinical trials performed by the top GI researchers nationwide show that sleeping in the position created only by MedCline (inclined + left side) reduces exposure to harmful stomach acid by 87% compared to a standard bed wedge. MedCline has been clinically proven to provide significant symptom reduction for patients suffering with nocturnal reflux, laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) or “silent reflux” patients, post-esophagectomy, and gestational reflux.
You won’t slide down during the night. The patented arm pocket at the top of the MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge keeps you from sliding down during the night, which is one of the primary complaints with a bed wedge. By not sliding down, you can take full advantage the inclined + side sleeping position for maximum relief from nighttime acid reflux/GERD, all night long.
Sleep comfortably on your side. The patented arm pocket of the Advanced Positioning Wedge not only prevents you from sliding down but it takes the pressure off your downside arm and shoulder.
Inclines your entire torso, not just head and neck. Unlike many standard wedges, the MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge inclines your entire torso, not just your head and neck, for maximum ergonomic support and effectiveness.
Medical-grade materials for quality, support and longevity. Most standard bed wedges are just a singular foam cut into a triangle. The MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge is constructed with four types of medical-grade foam, strategically placed for maximum support and product longevity. The top layer of the Advanced Positioning Wedge is memory foam for added comfort.
Plush removable and washable case installed. The MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge comes with a removable case installed, which is machine washable.
Use your own favorite head or body pillow. The smaller insert pillow is not intended to be used as a head pillow. Just place your own favorite head pillow on top of the insert pillow and you are ready for sleep.
Relief Guarantee. Adjusting to a new sleep position can take some time. It can take new users up to 30 nights to adjust as the foam breaks in and you make the adjustment to sleeping a new way. We can assure you the relief will come, if you stick with it! As part of our return policy, we require that you try MedCline for at least 30 nights. If after 30-night trial period, MedCline is not providing you relief at night, you are able to return it for the purchase price, minus a 10% recycling fee.
MedCline is not recommended for lower back or hip injuries. MedCline creates a 15 -20 degree angle so those with herniated disks, compounded disks, bulging disks, fused vertebrae, scoliosis, or lumbar damage, arthritic hips, bursitis in the hips, or hip injuries often find it difficult to tolerate the angle that MedCline creates.
Looking for shoulder relief only? If you do not suffer with nighttime GERD and are looking for shoulder relief only, the MedCline LP Shoulder Relief System will work better for you. Please call one of our MedCline Sleep Specialists at 800-610-1607 with any questions.
The MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge is available in three sizes. Please select the appropriate size based on your height as comfort and effectiveness are dependent on a proper fit with your torso. Should you have any questions about which size to order, please give us a call at 800-610-1607.

I'm dreaming again!!!
Posted by David Stephen on May 17, 2018
Hello, I rarely write reviews but this product works, and I wanted to share my experience so far. When initially laying on it the first time, I was a little concerned that it wasn’t comfortable, but when I found that good spot, I was asleep before I knew it. I’m coming up on 40, and I haven’t been making the best lifestyle choices. I live in Cincinnati, and we have a ton of new restaurants and breweries. Well, going out to eat and excessive drinking is taking its toll. I have been cutting back on the unhealthy choices but still having issues with GERD and snoring. After the first night, my wife said in the morning I didn’t hear you snore at all last night. I had the most amazing dream, and I can’t remember the last time I had such a vivid dream! The simple design of locking your arm into position keeps me on my side. I already have had better luck with GERD with eating healthier, but this eliminated the smaller attacks that would occur after eating later(usually when I photograph a wedding or having a couple of drinks on the weekend). I highly recommend this product! My parents just bought two! If you suffer from snoring or acid reflux or GERD, stop what you’re doing and buy this product now!
I must say it has changed my life
Posted by Ron C. on May 16, 2018
Let me start by saying I have never written a review on any purchase until now. I am a 70 year old male in relative!y good health. However, I have suffered for years with pain in my shoulders when sleeping on my side. I have tried so many things to either change my sleep position or ease the pain. Nothing worked. I was researching the issue online when I came across the MedCline Advanced Positioning Wedge. I was very reluctant to spend the money for something that seemed so simple.
I have been sleeping on the wedge for over a month now and I must say it has changed my life. The result has been nights of totally pain free sleep and comfort far beyond what I had hoped for. I have read reviews of people having to adapt to the new sleeping position and angle of incline. I am sure they are true, but for me there was no adjustment. The pain relief occured the first night I slept on the wedge and I have had no shoulder pain since. There have been no issues of odor or heat from the foam.
I just removed the cover and machine washed it on gentle cycle and hung it up to dry. The process was quite simple.
I can’t say in strong enough terms how highly I recommend this product. Best purchase ever for this thankful sleeper.
MedCline is a great company!

MedCline is a great company! I had the wrong size wedge and they hooked me up! Is very worth the cost! I highly recommend this product!!! Thanks MedCline
Everything changed when we got MedCline.
Posted by Cathy H. on March 26, 2018
I was waking up every night at 2am because my husband’s snoring pattern had changed. It was as if his breathing had become very irregular and he was struggling with reflux. Once he got the pillow, everything changed. I was able to sleep through the night.
A few weeks later at a yoga seminar, I fell asleep in savasana and the friend beside me (who happens to be a nurse) told me she thought based on my breathing that I should be tested for sleep apnea. Instead, I simply bought a pillow.
They take some time to get used to, and the size really matters. If you fall in between, go with the smaller option. I sized up and it didn’t work. Luckily, the company was really great about helping me get to something that was comfortable. They were super easy to work with.
I am getting several hours of uninterrupted sleep.

I’ve had my MedCline pillow for about 2 weeks. When I would sleep, I’d have to change positions all night due to my arms going numb. After a few days of getting adjusted. I am getting several hours of uninterrupted sleep. This has also helped with heartburn/acid reflux. Best part was that my HSA covered it. Thanks MedCline.
Great customer service.
Posted by Steven on March 26, 2018
I’ve had had a great experience with MedCline. I am close to 6′ tall and was originally advised to purchase the large to address left shoulder pain and acid reflux. The unique design of the pillow immediately alleviate discomfort in my shoulder. And the incline is benefitting my acid reflux. Several months after purchase, I informed Customer Service that the large may not be the best fit for me and she (specifically Danielle) agreed to switch-out my large for the small wedge at no charge. Great customer service.
I love it
Posted by Alan on March 23, 2018
I love it. It helps my GERD symptoms a lot and my wife compliments it for reducing my snoring tremendously! The pillow arrived quickly and is super comfortable.
This Pillow has been a great relief.
Posted by Maryann S. on March 23, 2018

I now get up in the morning not in pain from acid Reflex. This Pillow has been a great relief. there are issues with it but it does out ways getting up in the morning in pain.
I had substantial relief from the very first night
Posted by Barbara on March 22, 2018
I had substantial relief from the very first night. It has taken a few days to get used to it ……but I love it. I usually don’t write a review but this product is wonderful. I called customer service to get a few tips and they were so helpful and you speak with live US. based representative. I haven’t had great customer service like this in years!. Highly recommend this for shoulder pain and or reflux. I ordered and it was confirmed the same day and shipped the next day.
Love, love, love my medcline pillow!!
Posted by Janet A. on March 22, 2018
Love, love, love my medcline pillow!!! This has been the only thing that has relieved my shoulder pain! After getting used to it, which only took me a few nights, my shoulder pain resolved in about a week! I no longer wake up because of pain! Not to mention curbing my occasional GERD! Thank you for this wonderful pillow and great nights of sleep again!
I absolutely LOVE my MedCline wedge.
Posted by Sylvia R. on March 21, 2018
I absolutely LOVE my MedCline wedge. I have had it for a little over a year, and it has been a life saver. Before I found MedCline I was unable to sleep at night due to the severity of my reflux. This truly is my little miracle. I just purchased the body pillow as well and I love it also. I know the price may seem high to some people. I struggled with whether or not to get it myself due to the cost, but I am so glad I did. I don’t regret it for one second. I tried traditional wedge pillows before MedCline, and let me tell you, they are nothing like the MedCline wedge. I promise you, you won’t regret your purchase. Their customer service team is top notch as well. They are very knowledgeable about the products and they do whatever is needed to fix any issues. The only problem I have had is hip pain, but I believe this is due to my shortness vs the length or the wedge. It’s not enough of an issue for me to stop using it though. Thanks, MedCline! You guys rock!
