Sleep experts at the Stress Research Institute at Stockholm University have produced research that shows that more than one in ten Swedes have a sleep disorder.
Somna AB, a company that develops, manufactures and distributes cognitive devices, has developed a patent pending product, The Somna Blanket™, which is used by both children and adults in order to relax, calm down and improve sleep.
After many years in the cognitive tools industry, they experienced that a product was missing. There were scientific studies of gravity having calming effect on anxiety and insomnia, and they decided to develop a product that would fill the product gap.
The Somna Blanket™, patented in Japan and patent pending in the European Patent Office, was created on the basis of scientific studies of the relaxing impact of weight and point pressure. The Blanket includes metal chains providing flexibility and weight. Due to the deep pressure applied to the body, the user experiences a feeling of safety and bodily substances are released, creating a calming effect.
The Blanket also has a particularly positive effect on a person of any age with a neuropsychiatric disorder, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, dementia, etc. The weight of the chains, and the point pressures that they provide, contribute to accentuating a person’s perception of his or her body. This helps to reinforce the signals from the sensory nervous system to the brain, making the person feel more relaxed and harmonious.
