West Long Branch, New Jersey - US bedding supplier Sleep Innovations says its REMedy Bed Upgrade Kit, a gel-infused memory foam mattress topper and coordinating pillow, will help students "get the essential sleep they need for strong performance and academic achievement in school," as they head off to college dormitories.
"Our gel-infused memory foam takes comfort to the next level and we hope it helps students feel refreshed and ready for a day of learning so they can perform their very best in school," said Mike Loomis, executive vice president of Business and Product Development at Sleep Innovations
The US National Sleep Foundation says teenagers need nine and a quarter hours of sleep a night to function at their best, with the REM sleep cycle important as it allows the brain to recharge.
Sleep Innovations claims the gel-infused memory foam mattress topper conforms to a sleeper's unique body shape and relieves pressure points for better circulation and less tossing and turning during sleep.
The company adds that the topper is "particularly beneficial for college students who tend to get less sleep away from home and must sleep on dorm beds that have become warped and uncomfortable from years of use."
