ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Relief Bed International® founder and innovator Scott Smalling spent the last 30 years in the bedding and specialty foams market. Most noteworthy in his career, Scott was the original founder of the ComforPedic® brand which manufactured and marketed premium priced memory foam mattresses. While at the helm of ComforPedic® Smalling felt most fulfilled when he was leading outreach and disaster relief projects throughout the US.
In early 2015, Smalling felt a prompt in his heart to create beds that could be enjoyed by everyone, especially those that don’t have a bed! Relief Bed® is the realization of that dream for Smalling, whereas, he could combine his expertise in providing better sleep with his passion for helping others.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have
received to serve others, as faithful stewards of
God’s grace in its various forms.
1 Peter 4:10
“Relief Bed® was created to help provide strength, better health, and ultimately,
HOPE to people living and working in fragile areas around the world.”
