Leg Rests & Pillows - FAQs
There is no comparable leg rests on the market that position your legs in this unique, scientifically proven position. Many products on the market have a flat surface and are not contoured to the shape of the legs, resulting in pressure points and improper blood flow. Those that may have a contour do not fit the natural shape of the legs, thereby reducing effectiveness.

Who should not elevate their legs?
There are two conditions which might prevent one from being able to elevate their legs. Patients with severe Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) may experience shortness of breath while lying flat, and therefore may be unable to use this product. Second, 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.
Why does the foam turn yellow?
Firstly, you don’t need to be alarmed, as slight discoloration of memory foam is natural and something that’s part of memory foam’s aging process. It is not harmful and toxic in any way.
Several factors contribute to the change in color in memory foam. Polyurethane foam turns yellow mainly due to oxidation. Factors such as exposure to UV light, pollution, emissions, etc., are responsible for expediting the oxidation process of all foam.
How to I put on the Lounge Doctor cover?
It works best to place the top back corners on the foam first, then pull the cover down to cover the bottom front corners. Next, turn the leg rest around to pull the back of the cover down to the bottom edge of the foam. The covers are designed to fit a little snug so that there are no wrinkles in the cover.
Once these steps are complete, you should be able to zip the zipper around the bottom of the leg rest. You may have to push the foam in a bit to allow the zipper to close without getting stuck on the foam, but working the zipper closed should not be too difficult.
