At UBIMED®, we are passionate about bringing safety to families, and the Lifenest® Sleep System™ exemplifies our commitment.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
UBIMED®, a leader in pediatric products designed to ensure babies’ safety, comfort, and hygiene, has announced that its Lifenest® Sleep System™ received the 2013 Seal of Approval from The National Parenting Center. The Lifenest®, its latest product, helps prevent positional plagiocephaly –more commonly known as the Flat Head Syndrome.
The National Parenting Center and its Seal of Approval program provide parents with comprehensive parenting advice while recognizing high-quality products available to parents.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year about four thousand infants die suddenly and of no immediately obvious cause –a devastating occurrence known as the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS. Because the “Back to Sleep” campaign, endorsed by the AAP, advises to place the baby on the back and on a firm mattress, almost one in two babies is affected by flat head as found by a Canadian medical study*. In response to this plight, UBIMED® created the Lifenest® Sleep System™ after years of burning the midnight oil creating multiple prototypes and overcoming architectural challenges.
Always striving to maintain a high level of quality at every step of the design and manufacturing processes, UBIMED® devised the next generation of baby mattresses that uses the natural properties of a hammock. Indeed, the netting incorporated at the top of the Lifenest® creates a safe and comfortable environment as it provides a larger surface area for the baby’s head to rest. In doing so, it redistributes pressure away from the head’s soft spots, which helps with the development of a round head. In fact, a pressure mapping test revealed that the Lifenest® Sleep System™ relieves up to 50 percent of the pressure build-up on a baby’s skull.
The company is proud of its accomplishments. José Bensoussan, M.D., Ph.D. and CEO of UBIMED®, has declared that “it is an honor to be recognized by The National Parenting Center with their Seal of Approval.” He explained that, “[a]t UBIMED®, we are passionate about bringing safety to families, and the Lifenest® Sleep System™ exemplifies our commitment. This sleep system embodies our most successful effort yet to better the pediatric industry. We aim to see a real change in the industry with easy applications for family safety. We are glad to see that the approval we have received from parents throughout the world is shared by the National Parenting Center.”
Tested by independent testers including parents, educators, and panelists, the Lifenest® Sleep System™ continues to bring comfort and safety, so both parents and babies can sleep soundly and worry-free.
Lifenest®. For your baby’s safety, and your peace of mind.
