Instructions: Set on a flat area such as a couch or bed. Your calf should rest comfortably in the pocket created by the leg rest, with your knee centered over the convex curve. Your heel should hang over the top edge. Your back should be flat and your legs elevated above your heart. If you become short of breath while lying flat, it is OK to elevate your back as needed. See instructions for full information and a size chart to see which fits you best

Please note: There are two groups of patients whom may be unable to elevate their legs due to preexisting conditions. Patients with severe Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) may experience shortness of breath while lying flat, and therefore may be unable to use this product. Secondly, patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease may have pain in their feet while their legs are elevated because the arterial blood has to go "uphill" against gravity
Designed by a vascular surgeon · Puts legs in the correct position · Boosts circulation
This vascular surgeon-designed elevating leg rest gets you in the right position to reap the benefits of better circulation. The cushiony foam is contoured to comfortably cradle legs at the precise angles needed to maximize blood flow. This can reduce swelling and help you feel rested and refreshed faster. There are different sizes suited for different heights and you can opt for extra-wide, too. Made in the USA.
Dr. Christopher Dickson is the vascular surgeon behind the Lounge Doctor elevating leg rest. Dr. Dickson noticed patients putting their legs up to help improve circulation but in less-than-ideal positions that actually inhibited blood flow.
He determined the best angles (and the ones to avoid) needed to let gravity do the work of maximizing blood flow, from the back through the thighs, calves, and lower legs. This can help reduce swelling and leave you feeling refreshed faster.
Pick a leg rest to suit your height and you can opt for extra-wide and added cooling comfort, too. The leg rest feels great if you’re often on your feet, recovering from a leg injury, or are just looking for a super-comfy way to feel refreshed after a long day.
