Researcher’s in Ehime, Japan have shown benefits of reduced blood pressure in men ranged in age from 19 to 64, with an average age of 50. Yasuharu Tabara wondered whether sleeping posture might affect overnight blood pressure — and a person’s risk of a nighttime heart attack.
The men’s overall blood pressure went down slightly — but significantly — when they rested face down. Twenty-five of the men had a dramatic decrease in blood pressure — more than 15 points — when they flipped from face up to face down.

During future testing of the Floatface sleep system, it is intended to monitor patients for blood pressure improvements when sleeping face down over side or back sleeping.
