Nightmare Prevention Mattress

Walter Cleasby was granted a UK patent (GB2263399A) in 1995 for his "nightmare prevention mattress."

As far as I can tell, Cleasby believed that infant nightmares were caused by physical factors such as a) the hardness of cot mattresses, and b) pressure on a baby's heart from body weight.

His invention addressed these issues by having an inward slope as well as a recess "to protect the main organ of the body, (the Heart,) from excessive pressure."
