Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Lounge Doctor Leg Rest compare to other leg rests

No other leg rest available on the market positions the legs in this unique position. In addition, many of the available products have flat surfaces and are not contoured to the shape of the legs. This results in pressure points and is uncomfortable. Those that do have a contoured surface simply do not fit as well. We also offer the same patented shape with memory foam and in an extra wide model for those who like more room.

Which Lounge Doctor Leg Rest is best for me?

All of our products have the same patented shape whether they have memory foam or not.

  • The Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™ is our basic model and is the least expensive.
  • If cost is not an issue the Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™ with Memory Foam may be the right option for you. It is more comfortable because of the 2 inch layer of memory foam which molds perfectly to the shape of your legs.
  • If you like some extra room, the Extra Wide Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™ is for you. This is 24 inches wide, compared to 18 inches wide with our standard Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™. Keep in mind however, that the 24 inch wide model does not fit as well on a couch because it is wider than most couches. For this reason, it is best used in bed. It is also more expensive to ship the Extra Wide Lounge Doctor Leg Rests because of their larger size.
  • The Extra Wide Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™ with Memory Foam is our top of the line. It has the extra room of the Extra Wide Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™, plus the extra comfort provided by the 2 inch layer of memory foam.

What is the proper way to use my Lounge Doctor Leg Rest?

  • The Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™ is designed to be used on the couch or on a bed. The size and shape of the product were designed to account for how a person’s weight causes them to settle some when relaxing on a couch or in bed.
  • The calf should rest comfortably in the pocket created by the leg rest, with the knee centered over the convex curve of the leg rest.
  • The heel should hang over the edge of the Lounge Doctor Leg Rest™. This is to prevent pressure on the heel which can be uncomfortable and can even create a pressure sore.
  • Ideally, the back should be flat so that the leg is elevated above the heart. If you get short of breath while lying flat, it is OK to elevate your back some as needed.

Where does the color cappuccino come from?

The Capuchin order of friars attempted to return to a simpler way of life focused on solitude. This movement was initially suppressed and this group found refuge with the Camaldolese monks. In gratitude for their help, The Capuchin friars adopted the hood, or capuccio, worn by the Camaldolese monks. Later Italians called espresso coffee mixed with steamed milk “cappuccino” because the color of the coffee resembled the color of the hood worn by the Capuchin friars.


Who should not elevate their legs?

There are really only two conditions which might prevent one from being able to elevate their legs. These are severe peripheral vascular disease and congestive heart failure.

 

Those with peripheral vascular disease (PVD) have plaque in the arteries which supply blood to the legs. This plaque is also know as hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis. If these blockages are severe, it may be difficult to pump enough blood to the feet when they are elevated, because the blood has to fight gravity. This can cause the feet to hurt when they are elevated. This will not do any damage to your legs, but is uncomfortable. Those with mild to moderate PVD can elevate their legs without experiencing this pain. However, those with severe PVD will not tolerate leg elevation.

With congestive heart failure (CHF), the heart does not pump blood efficiently. Patients with significant CHF can become short of breath when lying flat. Elevating the legs, which increases venous blood flow back to the heart, could potentially exacerbate these symptoms.
