San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Steadfast in its mission to provide nighttime gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) sufferers with an alternative treatment solution, Amenity Health, Inc. is proud to announce that its patented Medcline™ Reflux Relief System is now available online through the ApriaDirect™ website (http://www.apriadirect.com), a service of Apria Healthcare, Inc, the nation’s leading provider of home medical equipment. Whether used as a stand-alone treatment to relieve nighttime symptoms or in tandem with a doctor-approved medication protocol, the Medcline™ Reflux Relief System has been clinically proven to drastically reduce nighttime reflux so those suffering from GERD can sleep better. Medcline™ is a Class I Medical Device listed with the FDA and cleared for patient use.
While there are a variety of bed wedges available on the market today, the Medcline™ Reflux Relief System is different. As a comprehensive sleep positioning device, Medcline™ outperforms simple bed wedges in both effectiveness and comfort. In fact, a recent study conducted by The Medical University of South Carolina found an 8x reduction in esophageal exposure compared to a traditional bed wedge and a 38% reduction in reflux episodes throughout the night. Additionally, Medcline™ was also found to be 2x as comfortable.
Coupled with multiple proprietary design features, the patented design of Medcline™ is the only comprehensive sleep positioning system that combines two strategies known to be effective at relieving nighttime GERD/acid reflux – (1) sleeping at an incline and (2) sleeping on one’s side. The structure and support offered by Medcline™ provide the ultimate in comfort, while naturally relieving nighttime acid reflux.
ApriaDirect™ is a service of Apria Healthcare, working with its brand’s respected industry name to offer home healthcare products and accessories for online sale to its customers from the convenience of their homes.
