Sleepy Kneez® is a small pillow that aligns your hips and cushions your knees without the excess bulk, and attaches to your leg to keep it in place all night. The firm pillow comes with an adjustable stretchy band designed for maximum comfort. Sleepy Kneez can also be fitted with our customized HOT/COLD gel pack insert.
A knee pillow works to help relieve pressure in the hips and lower back and is a helpful tool for anyone who wants extra support for the spine.
Sleepy Kneez improves knee comfort, and eliminates pressure on the lower back and hips restoring natural alignment.
The most common sleeping position is on your side, with you legs and hips aligned and flexed. Because this position leaves your upper leg unsupported, the top knee and thigh tend to slide forward and rest on the mattress, rotating the lower spine.
PRODUCT REVIEW: Sleepy Kneez® I’ve told thousands of people to sleep on their side over the years, especially when there’s back pain, and to put a pillow between their legs. Sleepy Kneez® has improved on that time tested strategy in some really clever ways. It’s a small but dense pillow you attach to your leg, just above the knee, so it dramatically reduces twisting of the pelvis by keeping the knees closer to hip distance apart. Plus, it’s lightweight and comfortable, so it also solves the size and density problem of using a regular pillow. Pillows are usually made of materials that compress like fiberfill, down or memory foam, the more weight you put on them, the more they compress. Since your leg and thigh weigh more than your head, regular pillows compress making it harder to support your upper leg unless the pillow is really big… which makes it harder to turn over and so gets kicked away. For those with a knee problem it’s soft and comfortable, and the removable, washable case can hold a hot or cold pack. Bottom Line: Sleepy Kneez® is an elegant and intelligent way to keep the knees separated and legs supported when you roll about at night improving (even preventing) back, hip, and knee pain.

I continue to enjoy the use of the Sleepy Kneez pillow that I purchased at APTA Next. It has reduced the back pain that I experience when sleeping at night due to my poor alignment. The pillow is easy to don and doff and is comfortable to wear. I’m very satisfied with the product! Thanks for introducing it to me.
Wow! I had a great night sleep, and the Sleepy Kneez® pillow never moved. S. KAUFFMAN, MONTREAL, CANADA
I started using the Sleepy Kneez® knee pillow after a new knee injury. My usual pillows and props had not helped, so I tried something new. With the Sleepy Kneez® I was able to find a neutral position, and sleep through the night! My knee progressively improved thanks to that newly found, night time support.Thanks Sleepy Kneez®, I won't spend another night without you! M.

I have to tell you the new pillow and strap make all the difference! I slept well for the first time in months. The strap is much more comfortable I didn't even feel it and the pillow was perfect (it really molds to your body). Julia McNally, Personal Trainer
It is fantastic- it fits on the knee and is not bulky like a pillow

By the way, I've been using the Sleepy Kneez pillow for about 2 weeks and it's amazing! I used to wake up with a sore back and lately my back feels fine in the morning. THANK-YOU!
