Where to buy an orthopaedic pillow

Before setting off to buy an orthopaedic pillow, think about what it is supposed to be used for. There are memory foam pillows and water pillows that can be moulded to the required shape for neck support. There are anti-snoring pillows and cervical pillows, V-shaped pillows, travel pillows and even those that answer the age-old question of how to cure insomnia.

Manufacturers

For those with a specific need, it is best to go right to the source. In this case, it is the pillow manufacturer. This includes brands like Putnams, Mediflow, Serenity Visco and Harley. Putnam for example, offers a Visco memory pillow that constantly re-adjusts so that the user's weight is distributed evenly. Whether a person sleeps on his side or on his back, the pillow provides the right neck support and cradles the head. Harley has a designer neck care pillow that not only provides the required support, but also dissipates heat and stimulates blood circulation. They also have a V-shaped pillow that can be used for relaxing on the bed or on a chair. Buyers can visit these companies' websites and order online. They may also land up in person at one of their showrooms or at an official dealer's shop. A list of these showrooms and shops can be found on the manufacturer's website.

Online shopping

Those looking to buy online can just as easily find a wide range of orthopaedic pillows at shopping sites like Amazon or eBay. Amazon has a long list on which all the major brands of the pillow are listed. There are pillows for all kinds of different needs available. This includes neck support, snore relief, lumbar temperature control, etc. They are listed in their
'Homeware & Furnishings' section under the heading 'Bedding' and 'Pillows.'

Homebase

It is just as easy to buy ordinary cushions and pillows from Homebase as it is to buy an orthopaedic one. Customers can buy it in person at one of their stores or they can buy it online from their catalogue. Their listings include a hollow fibre full-body support orthopaedic pillow and another V-shaped support pillow.

Mattress store

Most people buy pillows as part of a set along with pillow covers. They may also buy a mattress, linens, curtains and beds. In this case, a mattress store is the best place to shop around for orthopaedic pillows that will look good with the rest of the bedroom furnishings and accessories. This includes physical stores like the Dreams stores and online stores like Mattress Man.
