    Paul, I did find your shoulder support system (at the above Amazon link) so you should be able to get one. Here's another link:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B012YDAN5C...et_detail_page
    I did buy it, but I just returned it because it was too tall for me, and made me feel like I was sitting up in bed. I bought the "medium" firmness version. The link above is for the "firm" version. I don't know which version you had, but maybe the "firm" version wouldn't get flattened after only one year of use.

    I just bought the following wedge because it splits in the middle and I can use only the bottom half, so it isn't too tall for me. It is very soft so I don't recommend it for you Paul. But I will start using it tonight and hope it will relieve some of the shoulder pressure (pain) when sleeping on my side (with my shoulder just above the top of the wedge). Also, it's only $37 versus $150 for the above product. And I should be able to slice the bigger piece into 2 more wedges to use for replacements.

    There is another pillow option, even more expensive but might be worth considering. It's called 'MedCline'.

    That feature has not worked on our forums for many years. Hopefully once we transition to the new software and server (soon) it will work. Best to check back on the forums every few days for responses to your posts meanwhile.
