Furthering its commitment to validate its products with compelling clinical data with top researchers nationwide, Amenity Health has widened the clinical applications for its MedCline™ sleep positioning device to include include PPI-refractory, laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), post-esophogectomy and gestational reflux patients. Through 5 clinical trials completed in 2015, MedCline™ has been shown to be an effective treatment for GERD patients suffering with nocturnal reflux symptoms, including heartburn and regurgitation.
Highlights from these studies include:
- 72% reduction in nocturnal GERD symptom scores
- 95% reported an overall improvement in sleep quality
- 75% reported less difficulty with sliding down at night
- 67% reduction in nocturnal regurgitation scores

The 2015 clinical trials are added to a growing library of clinical data, including the randomized controlled trial conducted by the Medical University of South Carolina published in the June issue of the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, which showed:
- 87% reduction in esophageal acid exposure compared to bed wedges
- 38% reduction in reflux episodes than bed wedges
- Nearly 2x more comfortable than bed wedges
