The pillow-based Dreampad from Integrated Listening Systems converts the electrical signals of app-supplied music into vibrations — not audible sound waves — that help the user fall asleep and stay asleep. The quilted pillow plugs into a smartphone and a Dreampad app. The vibrations are conducted through the body’s bones and trigger relaxation through the parasympathetic nervous system.
“You have to try it to believe it-even my 6 year old said it makes him sleepy just laying and listening. We both almost shut our eyes at noon in our living room laying with it.” – Erinn Sluka
Kate has lived and breathed the therapeutic application of sound for nearly two decades. She has managed numerous centers over the years, trained thousands of therapists on the application of listening therapy, developed guidelines and protocols for listening equipment, and in the process developed a rare level of experience in clinic management. Most recently she co-founded Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) for which she overseas the Administration, Training and Program Development. Kate’s intimate knowledge of all facets of listening therapy and clinic management serve to make the Practitioner training course very popular among clinicians and educators. -Laura Dunn
“I have been using the Dreampad for the past 3 nights and love it! The app is very easy to use and all the music is extremely relaxing and not overpowering. You sort of forget the music is playing but at the same time it keeps your mind from wandering and worrying which used to keep me up at night. – Ben, SleepSherpa.com
