Gravity inclined sleeping is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of sleeping on a flat surface, the bed is at an incline of 5 degrees.
Gravity inclined sleeping also has numerous benefits on body structure. The slight incline is enough to restore the force of gravity on the body.
In westernized countries, there is an epidemic of sleep disorders. Sleeping on an inclined bed can help to open the airway, alleviating snoring and restoring oxygen to the brain.

Hardly any bed manufacturers have embraced the idea of inclined beds and so, when we were recently contacted by a customer who asked us to make one, we decided to produce a range of affordable wooden inclined beds.
Our range of beds are all made with a 5 degree slope and have a foot board high enough to hold the mattress securely without slipping.
