how wide is the frame at its base how long is the base from front to back (frame)
When pillows slip and slide you can get into uncomfortable positions. I find that this is my answer. It's sturdy, lightweight and folds flat for storage. My only complaint is that it arrived missing 2 of the white plastic end caps that protect the world from the metal edges of the tubes that this is made from. I would definitely recommend this to someone with a short or long term need for support like this in bed....

I was drawn to this product when I read a review by a previous reviewer. I had just come home from a month long stay in the hospital following surgery. I simply could not find a comfortable position in bed or when sitting in my favorite easy chair. After reading the enthusiastic review I decided to purchase the backrest and I am so glad I did! This product is well constructed, easy to adjust over five positions, and I had my first goodnight's sleep in weeks. The applicability of this product extends to those of us who read in bed, use our computers in bed, or suffer back pain. Highly recommend this product even if you haven't had surgery!Read More
I bought this back rest prior to having surgery. I knew I would be spending a lot of time in bed. It is great. There are multiple levels to gatch the height. Once it is gatched in place, it does not move or shift. The back rest is easy to clean. I used it in one position to watch TV, another to read and a third to "nap". The only negative aspect is the back part of the frame. I wish it was padded somehow. I wrapped a towel around the back part of the frame so it did not scrape against the headboard of the bed. PS I am going to order another as a gift.Read More
Questions & Answers
Thank you for shopping with us. The dimensions of the product are: 24.6 W x 3.5 D x 23.6 H inches. Have a great day.
Another customer gave dimensions. My comment is to make sure you have all the protective white caps for the ends of the metal tubes. Mine is missing two and the unprotected metal will scratch other surfaces.
How wide is the backrest, and how long is it (from the base hinge point, to the top of the backrest)? My concern is that I may be to tall to rest my head.
That would be 22.5 inches.
the base rod appears to come out past the vertical (ouch); is that the case or just photo angle? The short angled rod appears to do the same. is there velcro at the top, to make the tiny pillow removeable? the frame looks metal, but is it pvc/plastic?
Yes you are correct about the base rod. Yes there is velcro so that the pillow can be removed.
