DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 9, 2014) - Integrated Listening Systems (iLs), a provider of multi-sensory programs and products for improving brain function and emotional regulation, today announced that in honor of the Better Sleep Council's declaration of May as Better Sleep Month, iLs will be giving away one Dreampad per week during the month of May via its Dreampad giveaway page.
In a 2008 survey conducted by the Better Sleep Council, nearly 2 out of 3 respondents reported impaired sleep due to stress. One third of Americans experience poor sleep at least one night per week, and 16% are diagnosed with stress-induced insomnia. Over 40% of survey participants stated they were irritable due to sleep deprivation. An estimated $150 billion in lost productivity and absenteeism results from poor sleep.
The iLs Dreampad is a specialized pillow that delivers music through a subtle vibration that only the user is able to hear. The music evokes a relaxation response from the user and has been aptly described as a "massage to the nervous system." In a recent study the Dreampad showed a significant increase in the study participants' ability to relax. Nine of the 11 people that participated in the study displayed relaxation response within 15 minutes of using the Dreampad.
"In honor of Better Sleep Month, we are taking the opportunity to draw attention to the current sleep epidemic in the U.S.," said Ron Minson, MD, Clinical Director at iLs. "Integrated Listening Systems' Dreampad is a non-medicinal option available to help those who can't get to sleep easily on their own. It is implemented as part of a therapy program by clinicians and is also used at home by individuals and families."
