While we’ve been hearing for years that the best way to get a good night’s rest is to “turn off,” but what if I told you that there was something you should turn on to get the best sleep ever? Anyone with trouble falling or staying asleep, get ready to meet your new BFF, The Dreampad™.
Sound is carried by air to our outer ears and then by bone to our inner ears. Intrasound Technology mimics this process by using electromechanical transducers to convert the electrical signals of the music into vibrations which are then carried by our bones to the middle and inner ear. This area of our body plays a pivitol role in not only hearing but also in balance and coordination, and is connected to our Parasympatheic Nervous System (PNS). Opposed to our Sympathetic Nervous System which triggers a panic “flight or fight” response, stimulation of the PNS helps with our relaxation response. The Dreampad, a pillow created by Integrated Listening Systems (iLs), works to prompt a calming response from the PNS that helps users fall and stay asleep, delivering a sensory-based level of calm. Described as a “massage to the nervous system,” it blends iLs’ psychoacoustic expertise with Intrasound Technology, to use bone conduction to have the music from the Dreampad travel internally to our ears, meaning that for those of us that share a sleeping space, our partners or roommates won’t be bothered.
What I love about the Dreampad aside from being the only one that can hear the calming music, is that there are no headphones required and all it did was add a little extra cushioning to my pillow, allowing me to sleep comfortably and as I normally would. You can choose to download Dreampad music (five programs are included) or purchase a pre-loaded mp3 player, or even play your own music if that floats your boat! The Dreampad programs are preset to play for two hours but can be adjusted for desired length. Interested in trying it out? The Dreampad has a 30 day trial period so you can be sure it works! $179; integratedlistening2.gostorego.com
