Beacon Sleep Solutions

Abstract

There are many who suffer from a wide variety of sleep disorders such as sleep paralysis and narcolepsy. These disorders disrupt the body's fundamental way of restoring itself. With the stresses of modern living... sacrificing sleep simply cannot happen. Current treatment for some disorders include simple reassurance, or mental conditioning. Beacon Sleep Solutions is working on a series of medical devices to directly combat these disorders, to help allow people to reach their potential.
