Help make my bed more like a couch, please!

I’m trying to think of a way to make one part of my side of the bed more like the back of a couch. But I’m not very creative, apparently. Can you help me please?

I like to sleep on our futon couch because I can bend my knees and lean them against the back. It’s a comfortable position because I have low back pain when sleeping with my legs straight, but sleeping on our couch every night is not practical for several reasons. Can you help me think of a way I could replicate this sleeping position in a regular bed? Moving the bed up against a wall and leaning my legs against the wall is not an option. One of those wedge pillows on the bed won’t work because I don’t usually sleep this way all night, rather I like to start out in this position and move to my side later. I envision something along these
lines, but a little taller and shorter (and with padding if possible). All the bed rails I looked at don’t seem tall enough and are too long; I only need it to be about maybe 18" long, but it has to come up at least 22” above the level of the mattress (I'm 5'4"). If such a product doesn’t exist, how could I (a not-terribly-handy person) go about fashioning one from easily available materials? Thanks in advance, hivemind!
