Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 15, 2013
Somnetics International, Inc., the Minneapolis-based maker of the Transcend® Sleep Apnea Therapy System™ and accessories today announced that it has exclusive rights to sell and distribute the SleepAngel Pillow to the medical market in the United States. The SleepAngel Pillow is the only pillow in the world that has 100% barrier with a filter, proven to completely block germs, mold, dust, and allergens that can contribute to asthma, allergy, sinus, and respiratory conditions.
The SleepAngel Pillow features PneumaPure™ Filter Technology, which is scientifically proven to block germs, viruses, mold and allergens from contaminating the pillow’s interior, and thereby protecting patients in hospitals, long-term care facilities and sleep labs, and home users seeking a comfortable night of sleep and peace of mind. The SleepAngel Pillow provides the cleanest environment for rest with a barrier pore size of 0.2 microns that blocks viruses (0.4 microns), bacteria (0.8 microns) and dust mite allergens (2 microns) compared to standard allergy barriers with a pore size of 4 to 6 microns. The airflow technology of the SleepAngel Pillow provides comfortable support and a more restful sleep.
“Somnetics is committed to providing products that contribute to improving the lives of patients who suffer from respiratory and sleep disorders,” said Clarence Johnson, CEO and president of Somnetics International, Inc. “The SleepAngel Pillow complements the growing line of devices that Somnetics offers to help people breathe and sleep better and reduces the impact of allergens and germs in getting a good night of sleep.”
The SleepAngel Pillow is manufactured by Ireland-based Gabriel Scientific, a research and development company dedicated to the design and manufacture of science-based products that improve the quality of sleep. The SleepAngel Pillow has won numerous innovation awards and certifications worldwide that validate the technology and recently received a citation and recommendation as an effective infection control device by renowned infection control expert Diane Wake, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Nurse, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital NHS Trust in the UK NHS Infection Control Sector.
