A pillow that squirms when you snore

Dynamically inflatable therapeutic support and methods of using the same


A therapeutic cushion having a plurality of fluid-filled chambers, with each chamber having an internal volume that is independently adjustable. In a pillow embodiment, air-filled chambers are dynamically regulated in response to a monitored behavior or characteristic of a resting user… To configure the cushion (1) to provide a therapeutic treatment for snoring, at least one sensor is included to detect and monitor snoring intensity and thereby provide feedback to the dynamic pressure regulation process.

So says US Patent application # 11/592,303, filed March 22, 2007, by Daryoush Bazargani of Berlin, Germany.
