I am not sure who would take on researching the use of inclined beds in MS patients. There is logic to the idea of inclining beds. If it were something that could be sold, perhaps it would have been funded and capitalized on already....

I'm not sure we need to subdivide though we can quite sensibly discuss them all here on their own threads.
I feel subdivison of medicine actually has something to answer for when it comes to problems like MS*, lets not subdivide our combined knowledge to the same degree!
* There is an advantage of taking a global overview of symptoms that we seem to have lost these days. We assume each symptom pigeon holes nicely into a specific specialsits area.

How would a trial work, would be done in a hospital under controlled conditions? Would it be done in patients homes with set size blocks under the head of each bed?
How does the age and type of mattress in each persons bed effect the sleep each person receives?
I'm not sure of the benefit of spending money on a trial, personally I feel you'd get a better result spending the same money on advertising the idea and getting people to try it.
"Lift your bed up 4" and see if you feel better"
Set up a website with a series of set questions to get feedback and there's your trial.
If it proves positive you're now armed with a huge amount of information to push for a fully controlled funded trial, without that you're going to be banging your head against the wall and not get anywhere.
