What is Hug Sleep?
Being hugged or cuddle has been proven to put you into a deeper more calming sleep. The patented Sleep Pod by Sleep Hug has been designed to just do that. By gently applying calming pressure, the lightweight sleep pod simulates being hugged or cuddled and provides compression rather than weight to help those with sensory disorders, anxiety, or stress. If your sleep problems stem from your inability to regulate your body temperature, then this will work wonders.
Who Founded Hug Sleep?
Hug Sleep was started by the husband and wife team of Matt and Angie. Matt comes from a mechanical engineering background and has spent most of his career as a new product designer.
Angie spent her life training in psychology. Together with their experience, they created Hug Sleep and patented their design for the Sleep Pod.
After exhausting all his options of trying to get a good night’s sleep, Matt decided to try to sort out his sleep issues. Being a new product developer by trade he had the perfect background to start developing a product for a good night’s sleep.
Angie with her background in mental health knew how important sleep is to be able to function. Together they started to develop the Sleep Pod which uses the same psychology used with weighted blankets to keep the user feeling secure and calm.
