How to convert a wood framed bed for Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT)
This video was created to illustrate how a wooden framed bed can be easily converted for inclined bed therapy at very little cost and effort.
It took approximately 5 hours to convert our Kingsize Pine bed.
We purchased a solid used bed from Ebay for £150.00 and purchased one piece of timber from the local builders / timber yard for the conversion for £11.00.

History tells us that we have not always slept on our perfectly flat beds. In fact the Pharaohs or ancient Egyptians slept with their beds raised at the head end by 6 inches or 15 cm's. Why? http://www.touregypt.net/images/touregypt/furniture8.jpg
Reading through the digitised Bible, wherever bed is mentioned it frequently associates bedrest with illness and death. One paragraph states "take up thy bed and walk" with reference to paralysis. The Tudor period in Europe was plagued with the sweating sickness, which killed millions who fell asleep never to awaken. Two guards were placed at the side of a sick persons bed to ensure they remained awake and presumably sitting rather than laying flat and this simple act was used to prevent people from dying of this terrible affliction.

John Cann Who Has a Spinal Cord Injury Walks after 11 Years Of Paralysis on Carlton Television News
Inclined Bed Therapy (IBT) has helped many more people with spinal cord injuries since this video was first shown on the local News. But it is not specific to Spinal cord injuries and has helped people with multiple sclerosis, ccsvi, parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, psoriasis,varicose veins, oedema,leg ulcer, poor circulation, and many more conditions during 17 years of research.
On the forum, you will find evidence to support this statement from people who have simply tilted their beds.
John Cann Walks after 11 years of paralysis using a simple non-invasive free therapy, discovered by Andrew K Fletcher, who has shown beyond any shadow of doubt that gravity plays a vital roll in the circulation of fluids and that posture in relation to the constant direction of gravity is of paramount importance when restoring function to all neurological and non-neurological damage.
On Saturday April 15th 2000, John obtained the timber for parallel bars to be erected at his home in Cornwall, On Sunday I went to John's home and completed the job, for tomorrow was to be a momentous occasion indeed.
John was left paralysed, in 1990, when surgery to his spine went wrong. He was told that after two years any chance of further recovery would be highly unlikely and for the next six years he experienced little if any change in his condition.

What type of blocks are safe for Inclined Bed Therapy
Suitable Blocks / Bed Raisers for Inclined Bed Therapy
These strong plastic cone shaped bed / furniture raisers / risers are excellent for tilting the bed for Inclined Bed Therapy. They are supplied in a box of 4 so you have a spare set for when you are travelling or staying with family and friends.
Although they measure slightly less than six inches it is not crytical to be exact and as most bed legs are set slightly in from the edge of the bed, the angle is within the range. If additional height is required, the risers can be placed on to another board or book.
They pack inside each other and are fairly lightweight so can easily fit inside a flight bag or suitcase and do not take up much room considering they are hollow.
Far easier to install than wooden blocks and inexpensive. Check Ebay for a bargain.
The blocks should measure 6 inches minimum from base to top as shown.
If you need to raise your bed higher, then simply put one cone inside the other and this will add 1-2 more inches depending where your bed legs are situated.
