The Mediflow Elite Waterbase Fiber Pillow promises a next level night’s sleep — and it delivers. Filled with hypo-allergenic polyester it’s very soft and cushy but the firmness level can be easily adjusted by adding water to a separate waterproof compartment on the base of the pillow. The more water you add, the firmer the support.


When it comes to adding water start slow and see how much works for you. I tested the pillow and for me less is more, but I’m a fan of a very soft slumber. Those that need more support can add more water. A word of warning — it may take a night or two to get the right level of water but it’s worth the effort because this pillow is exceptionally comfortable.

Because of the water in the base of the pillow, it actually adjusts as you move to maintain proper spinal alignment. According to an independent Johns Hopkins study the waterbase technology has been proven to reduce neck pain and improve overall quality of sleep.

Filling the pillow with water is relatively simple. A tool that doubles as a wrench and a funnel is included so securing the cap is a cinch. And once you get the right level of water to suit your spine you can leave it in the base for a year with no worries. Although this pillow may not be right for everyone, if neck pain is keeping you from getting a good night of rest we say try it. And if it’s not the pillow of your dreams you have 30 days to return it for a full refund. Retails for $59.95 at
