Ft. Myers, FL (PRWEB) January 09, 2013

Advanced Comfort, LLC has received Patent Pending status from the US Patent Trademark Office for its breakthrough durable medical equipment that relieves patient bedtime discomfort. Advanced Comfort markets the device under the trade name SomniMax™ Blanket Lifter.

The function of the device is to lift blankets off the feet of people who suffer from the weight and friction of the blankets pressing down on their feet and legs at bedtime, while at the same time providing a comfortable, draft-free environment under the blankets that maintains the temperature of the tented area.

By removing the blanket weight and friction from lower legs and feet, the device reduces conditions that promote the formation of pressure ulcers or bed sores. Pressure ulcers can cause tremendous pain, infection, frequent amputation and death. Additionally, the SomniMax™ Blanket Lifter brings relief to people who suffer from arthritis, neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, chemotherapy, orthopedic injuries and many more ailments that produce tingling, burning foot and/or lower leg pain and subsequent loss of healing sleep.

Critical to the success of the device is the invention of the revolutionary Bi-material™ insulating cover that blocks the opening created at the end of the bed when blankets are lifted off feet and legs. The Bi-material™ cover is made of a draft-blocking nylon exterior and a soft fleece inner surface. Use of the Bi-material™ cover allows for the use of standard blankets and sheets. Advanced Comfort also offers a DraftBlox™ disposable cover.

These devices increase comfort and relieve pain, and do so effectively without the use of medications for the majority of patients and customers who use them.

“Advanced Comfort’s vision is to be the world leader in personal comfort products through innovative, high-quality merchandise that consistently provides our customers with products for a better life at the best possible value,” stated David Jennings, CEO and Co-founder. He continued, “We are happy that the uniqueness of our devices was recognized by the US Patent Trademark Office.”
