From The Manufacturer

All our pillows are made in the USA and conform to the highest possible standards for quality and safety. No PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP ( Tris ) flame retardants No mercury, lead, and other heavy metals No formaldehyde No phthalates (as regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission) No ozone depleters Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality Remember, you don’t have to be all the way at the top of a wedge to enjoy the benefits of elevated sleep; just make sure the bottom comes at least to your waist so you don’t make yourself bend or fold in the middle and put extra pressure on your stomach. Place your own pillow on top of the wedge if you like. All MedSlant pillow covers are removable and washable in warm water, tumble dry low. About Medslant I was diagnosed with acid reflux disease in 1999 and told to sleep on a wedge pillow that was long enough to support me through the torso. When I asked where to get it, the reply was “I don’t know.” After several days of research, here’s what I learned: EVERY AUTHORITY HAD THE SAME SUGGESTIONS: sleep with your head elevated 6-8 inches make sure your ENTIRE upper torso is supported on an angle avoid certain foods Methodically I began the hunt for a wedge pillow. I felt like Goldilocks. This one was too uncomfortable. Too inconvenient. Too expensive. But none if them was right. I need to be supported through the entire torso – and I couldn’t find what I needed. So I did what any inspired sufferer would do, invented my own! Now I had a pillow that fully supported me, was comfortable and even folded for storage. And I am happy to make these same pillows available here for you. Adele

As for the pillow itself, it is torso-length and therefore provides a more natural incline (unlike some wedge pillows that end around the ribcage).
It helps the problem of GERD—acid reflux. Gravity influences a lot in this issue. If you stay in the proper position, the acid won’t reach the esophagus. The size of the Acid Reflux Wedge Pillow is recommended by doctor—it’s a good sized wedged pillow that will give you the proper elevation

What reviewers didn't like

It costs more than other comparable wedges.
It's the most expensive pillow we reviewed, an some testers preffered a higher-slanting model
Very firm. Takes time to get used to.
Some issues with pillow decompression may occur after delivery.
Allergen covers are purchased separately. Some customers complain that you may require using a small pillow to support your head.
Needs a good deal of time to completely expand.
The foam composition of this wedge pillow is softer in comparison to some other competitors, which can cause spinal discomfort and difficulty sleeping. It can also be more difficult to use this pillow between the mattress and box spring, as it may compress more easily than some made of firmer foam.
It’s expensive. The price is higher than other products, but the quality is also very high
