Want to make sleepless nights a thing of the past? Research shows many people sleep incorrectly without even realising. Find out below how this mattress could improve your sleep and may even help lower the risk of stillbirth.

Sleep is at least as important to health as a healthy diet and regular exercise – particularly when you are pregnant – and the mattress you choose can have a profound impact on the quality of shut-eye you get each night.

Discover below how the ORO Sleep System could help you sleep better, whether you have back pain or are a pregnant mum-to-be, and may even help lower the risk of stillbirth.

What is the ORO Automatically Adjustable Bed Sleep System?


We’re often told to consider our posture when sitting or standing to avoid problems with our backs and shoulders. As a result, you may already practise sitting up straight during the day – but this is impossible to do while you sleep.

By removing the area of the mattress where your shoulders lie and creating a recess, shoulders are placed below the surface of the mattress – so your spine will retain the correct posture and your shoulder will no longer bear the weight of your body.

The recess provides mothers with excellent side support, even with a conventional bed, with the recess placed at the top end of the mattress. This removes the body’s weight from the shoulder and positions the neck and spine in a straight natural posture.

For the utmost comfort, safety and sleeping experience throughout pregnancy, the latex mattress can be paired with the adjustable bed base that cleverly stores your sleeping posture preferences.

How the ORO Advanced Sleep System May Help Lower the Risk of Stillbirth

Research suggests that for every 1 million pregnancies in the UK, 25% end up in baby fatality. ORO’s advanced sleep system may help expectant mothers further lower the risks, with some studies showing that 3.7% of late stillbirths were linked with sleeping in the supine position.

The system helps pregnant women sleep on their sides rather than their back (the supine position). Through the automatically adjusting bed, the mattress senses if you have rolled onto your back and adjusts until you sit up and can move to a sideways position once again, providing safety and comfort for both mum and baby during pregnancy. When used together, the system could help to reduce the risks of stillbirth.

The system can also help to prevent snoring, sleep apnoea and reflux, all of which become more common as pregnant mothers enter their third trimester.

How is the ORO Automatically Adjustable Bed Different From Other Adjustable Beds?

Adjustable beds can help sleepers comfortably position themselves, but don’t take into account the fact that most people turn from back to side and vice versa during the night and that their bed should automatically readjust.

They can only be used while you are awake as the controls must be operated manually – contrastingly, ORO remembers your preferences and can automatically adjust while you sleep.


The ORO Advanced Sleep System has been used in homes, hospitals, and nursing homes. 

The ORO Advanced Sleep System was awarded a diploma and the Gold Medal for Design and Innovation at the 31st International Exhibition of Inventions.

ORO also works closely with Work for Good – a fundraising platform that helps small businesses donate to charity – and is inviting people to join their community; commissions can either be kept or donated to a charity of your choice.
