I envy my husband’s sleeping skills. He falls asleep the minute (sometimes, even second) his head touches his pillow. As for me, it’s jumping in between a gazillion thoughts before my brain gets tired and lets me sleep.
My sleep problem is small compared to others, though. Military personnel and people who have suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) need the help of meds just to get their much-needed sleep. In the United States, 70% of adults have experienced traumatic events at least once in their lives. So, if you think about it, there are millions of people have trouble sleeping at night.
Good thing Dreampad was invented. Dreampad is a pillow that emits sounds that you can feel. It uses a patented sound technology which eases the user into a peaceful sleep. The relaxing music and gentle vibrations from the pillow help you relax without disturbing your sleeping partner.
This is how it works.
This science-backed pillow is not a gimmick. In fact, there’s a study conducted on Dreampad effects here. It has proven to help PTSD veterans not just fall asleep faster, but also help them fall back to sleep after a nightmare.
The manufacturers have also considered people’s different pillow preferences. You can choose from 4 pillow types: memory foam, firm support, medium support, and slim support. The price ranges from $149 to $179 each.
Since June is PTSD month, Dreampad is also giving military discounts to honor them.
