Cologne, Germany -- Austrian foam producer Eurofoam is offering businesses the ability to offer employees a brief 'power nap' during the working day, to refresh them and improve performance.
Eurofoam not only offers the equipment -- the Inemuri lounger, a curved mattress/cushion with supporting base -- it will come into corporate premises and set up a power napping space, with appropriate lighting and so on, said Jerzy Jazwierski, area manager with the Austrian foam group, speaking 25 May at the Interzum furniture show in Cologne, Germany.
In Asia power napping, a short and powerful sleep, was and still is a fixed component of daily life. And in Central Europe more and more people are discovering how efficient a specific and correctly undertaken power nap can be, especially in the business world, says a Eurofoam statement.
To best support thepowernap, Eurofoam developed the Inemuri in cooperation with physiotherapists and doctors, and says it offers the best support for this type of sleep.
"The Eurofoam power napping lounger allows you to sleep quickly and thus increases attention, raises stress tolerance and clearly reduces the danger of burnout," said Prof. D Manfred Walzl, head of Sleep Medicine, at the Landesnervenklinik Sigmund Freud in Graz, Austria, in a statement on the Eurofoam website.
