Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of using triangle foam?
Triangular foam comes in a wide range of foam qualities and firmness’s, giving it many possible uses. Triangular foam is most commonly used as a foam lumbar for lower back pain relief. Foam lumbar support would be on the firmer side rather than a softer foam. A foam triangle in firm foam is also used for Zen Yoga by placing the foam under the lower back at a height that leaves the head approximately two inches off of the floor and opens the lungs, increasing oxygen inhalation. Foam triangles are also used for ailments in lower limbs to provide comfort and support when elevating the legs.
What foam should I use for my foam triangle?
The most commonly used foam is high density because it is an average quality foam and in an average price range. An advantage is that the high-density foam comes in all types of firmnesses, from very soft foam to extra firm foam. The most common foam firmness is medium-firm foam, offering support without being too firm and not being too soft and making it a good type of foam for the average person.
Foam Type Recommendations
Square foam has the same width and length, while rectangular foam has one side that is longer than the other. Square foam is commonly used for seat cushions and foam packaging for shipping, whereas rectangular foam is commonly used in foam mattresses. However, ultimately the use cases for foam in these two shapes is endless.
