Leg Ramp is a large, angled cushion that will help you elevate your legs with the aim of relieving pain or other forms of discomfort in your legs or back. This cushion is meant to be used on a bed, on a couch, on a floor or on any other flat surface that's long and wide enough to accommodate both the cushion and your body. It comes in a shade of light brown with a plush suede surface.
The cost of Leg Ramp is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping, for a total price of $27.98.

To get started with your Leg Ramp, use the small included air pump to inflate it. You'll find the appropriate hole to stick the pump in on the tallest side of the cushion (the side directly opposite the one that slopes downward like a playground slide). Inflate the cushion so it feels fairly firm, but not completely hard like a wooden chair.
After your cushion has been inflated, put your pump away in a safe spot and choose a flat surface on which to set up the cushion. Point the sloping end towards where you want your head to be, and point the taller end (the one with the hole for inflation) towards where you'd like your feet to rest.
Finally, once your cushion's set up on the surface of your choice, you can lie down and place your legs on top of it. As alluded to above, your feet should be close to the taller end, while the sloped end should be supporting either your knees or lower thighs, depending on your height. Unless you're very short, your upper thighs and any body parts above those should not be touching your Leg Ramp at all. Instead, they should be resting firmly on the flat surface you're lying down on.
Resting or sleeping while your Leg Ramp is underneath you is an option, but you don't have to keep your head and upper body completely flat. If you're not extremely tired, you might choose to read, knit, or work with your smartphone while using this cushion.
This cushion is able to relieve pain and discomfort in the legs (which can often spread to the back) by putting the legs in an elevated position that causes blood to drain away from them. Not only does this remove a certain level of pressure that's been put on the legs, but it may also make the circulation of blood throughout the rest of your body more efficient. This, in turn, could help solve other health problems you might have. Even after you remove your legs from your Leg Ramp, its positive effects are likely to linger for a few hours at the least.
This type of cushion can be used by people of any age or gender, aside from infants, regardless of what leg-related problem one may be experiencing. It can even be used by kids, although it's important to note that one of these may extend all the way up to a child's waist since kids are typically shorter than adults. As a result, if you and other members of your household are all dealing with leg or back problems, you may be able to share one cushion instead of investing in multiples.
Each Leg Ramp has a soft suede outer shell that's been designed to feel comfortable, even against bare legs. However, you can also expect this outer shell to be more durable than one made of thin plastic alone.
You'll notice that this elevation cushion is made up of pieces of material that end up being strategically placed at different angles once the cushion has been inflated. These angles have not been chosen at random, but have been selected during rounds of testing with input from medical professionals. This testing has deemed them the angles that'll provide a maximum level of comfort—along with the maximum level of benefits to the body that's possible—for the vast majority of users.
Aside from helping those people who have leg injuries, or are suffering from a chronic leg-related condition like arthritis or restless legs, the Leg Ramp is also useful for pregnant individuals. Carrying a baby in one's stomach can put a great amount of pressure on the back and the legs, even if the carrier is physically fit, and this cushion will help relieve that pressure. Furthermore, the cushion won't touch your stomach at all, so if you're pregnant, you won't have to worry about it putting extra pressure on your growing baby.
Without a device like the Leg Ramp, you might think you need to go out and get a reclining chair or couch, or a mattress for your bed that can be elevated. With just this one cushion, though, you'll be able to make your legs or back feel better without obtaining any of those pieces of furniture. If you add this cushion to a bed or couch, you'll immediately be able to put yourself in a similar position to one that an elevated mattress or a reclining chair or couch would offer.
It would be difficult to drag a piece of reclining furniture out onto your lawn or deck, but each Leg Ramp cushion is much lighter than most pieces of furniture. For that reason, you might choose to take yours outside and use it when you're tired of relaxing indoors or want to enjoy the company of others outside while still elevating your legs. Just make sure that it doesn't get wet, and before you go to set it down, verify that there are no sharp things that could poke a hole in it on your chosen surface.
The suede outer shell of each of these cushions is quite attractive, but if you don't like its light brown shade, you won't have another color choice. If you think that a light brown cushion won't look good with the rest of the decor in your home, or it'll show dirt too easily, this may not be the ideal cushion for you.
You won't be able to wash this elevation cushion in your washing machine. What's more, since the outer shell of each one is made from suede, it's best to minimize their exposure to water altogether. If your cushion does get dirty and you want to clean it, you'll have to dunk a cloth in vinegar and wipe it down, which may seem like an incredibly time-consuming chore.

Nothing like this picture - came dirty - pump broken in one box - no patch included - took over 5 weeks to get it and it helps like pilling up pillow - whoopee - don't waste your time - get a real Leg Ramp somewhere else - this thing is a gimmick.
