Sleep On Your Side without Ear Discomfort or Pain with a Specially Designed Therapeutic Pillow with Ear Hole.

The Thera-med Holey Pillow is designed specifically to provide effective relief from CNH, pressure sores and chronic ear pain. 

It has a 12 cm hole in an off-centre position to suit a variety of neck lengths and sizes. It is also very useful for those recovering from ear surgery, ear injuries and ear piercings.

The Holey Pillow was specially designed to help with recovery of ear pain pressure sores and CNH.

    • Designed specifically for sufferers of CNH
    • Excellent for relieving discomfort from ear piercings or cartilage damage
    • Specially fitted and removable poly/cotton pillow slip
    • Australian made CNH design
    • Polyfill inner around ear hole with memory foam inserts for neck support

A Pillow with Hole for Ear Conditions Designed in Conjunction with Health Professionals.

    • CNH (Chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis)
    • Ear cartilage damage
    • Recovery from ear surgery
    • Ear piercings

Our Therapeutic CNH Holey Pillow with its polyester fibrefill prevents Chafe and Pressure Sores 

The inner fill around the ear hole is soft polyester fibre to ensure softness even if the ear does come into contact with this part of the pillow. The polyfill can be removed to lower the height of the pillow if required.

Memory foam supports

Memory foam inserts run along either side of the ear hole to provide support for the neck and shoulders while the primary function of protecting the ear is maintained.

Other strategies for managing ear pressure injuries include dressings, repositioning and ear cut-outs (made of foam). Finding a comfortable position for patients in palliative care who have ear pressure injuries can be a challenge. The Holey pillow is designed to help manage ear pressure in conjunction with these other methods.

Service Rating : Fast service and easy transaction

Product : The pillow was a lot firmer than what I was used to but after a couple of nights I got used to it. I use a CPAP mask when I sleep and the headgear used to get between my existing pillow and my ear. This caused a lot of irritation to the outside of my ear and it would get painful and wake me up. I now have no pain and get to sleep right through.

Service Rating : Highly recommend Therapeutic Pillow Australia. The online order was so easy and quick to do, and delivery was super fast!
I have pulsatile tinnitus so the Thera-med Holey Pillow is perfect for me. It takes the pressure off my ear so that I can sleep and not hear the constant pulse, which in the past has kept me awake most nights. It is perfect for anyone with this type of affliction and for anyone who needs to take the pressure of the ear area. Again, highly recommend.

Product : Perfect product - highly recommend!

The pillow is a medium feel but to soften it you should be able to remove a bit of the filling inside just by undoing the zipper and then plump up the poly inside to give it a slightly softer feel.
