Using SimBalance Pillows.
The SimBalance pillow system is designed to tilt the head at a ~10-25 ⁰ angle while the user is sleeping on his/her regular bed. The system comprises three individual pillows, each with its own firmness, shape, and variable height. The combination of these three pillows provides optimal comfort for users, regardless of whether they sleep on the side or on the back.
