Backed by science
Cool sleep isn’t just a buzzword to us. It’s a guiding principle.
One of the most important factors that can influence the quality and duration of your body’s recovery during sleep is an adequate drop in your core body temperature. Our body’s thermoregulation is less efficient during sleep, so external controllable factors that affect temperature - such as the products you sleep on - are essential.
Our team includes renowned Sleep Doctors and Neurologists with decades of research and experience who understand the mechanisms of recovery-focused sleep and help guide our product development.

What is the right type of sleep?
In any given night of sleep, your body typically goes through four distinct stages of sleep. One stage in particular, Slow Wave Sleep, is the most restorative stage for your body.
- Transitional phase
- Floating in and out of consciousness
- Onset of sleep
- Becoming disengaged from surroundings
- Breathing and heart rate being to slow
- Deepest stage of sleep and the hardest to wake up from
- Blood pressure drops
- Breathing becomes slower, deeper, more rhythmic
- MOST RESTORATIVE STAGE
- Eyes dart back and forth
- Heart rate and blood pressure increase
- Brain is most active and dreams occur
