Why the Dreampad Works

You've Never Heard Music This Way Before

The Dreampad is a completely different experience than listening to music through a sound machine or a traditional speaker. Its specially-treated music has a unique sound, and a unique effect on your body and mind.Once your head is relaxed on the Dreampad, the music travels internally, signaling your body’s natural relaxation response​ so you can ease into a great night’s sleep. Added plus: it’s for your ears only, your sleeping partner won’t hear a thing.

More About Dreampad Technology

Dreampad technology is based on the natural conductivity of the human body, a principle known as ‘bone conduction.’ Every time we speak we hear ourselves in two ways: through ‘air conduction’ (air-conducted sound waves coming from our mouth and entering our outer ear) and through ‘bone conduction’ (the sound vibration emanating from our voice box and carried internally by bone and tissue to our inner ear). Have you ever heard your own voice on a recording and wondered why it sounds different? Why it lacks the resonance you hear when you speak? It’s because you’re hearing it solely through air conduction.

Regarding the apparent calming effect of the Dreampad, we are in the early stages of truly understanding both the underlying mechanism as well as the groups for whom the Dreampad is most effective. Preliminary research and clinicians familiar with the Dreampad suggest that sound waves coming from the Dreampad are activating the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) via the vagus nerve. The PNS helps you regulate stress. If we’re in a state of elevated stress, the PNS is the part of our nervous system which suppresses the anxious response, allowing you to relax. Dreampad is currently collaborating with university research teams to further measure the effect of product’s music on different ages and conditions.

Supporting Research

Columbia University Medical Center

Columbia University’s peer-reviewed study involved adults with stress related sleep difficulties. The results demonstrated the Dreampad’s effectiveness in promoting a deeper sleep, resulting in fewer awakenings during the night for the study participants.

SleepScore Labs

SleepScore Labs’ study reported objective and personal data gathered over 800+ user nights of testing the Dreampad with adults having stress-related sleep difficulties. Conclusion Excerpt: ‘Objective sleep data for those with persistent problems falling asleep showed that Dreampad use resulted in more deep sleep and fewer awakenings.’92% of study participants said they would recommend the Dreampad to their family or close friends.

Sensory Institute Pediatric Study

STAR Institute’s published study measured the results of the Dreampad on children with sensory sensitivities. All children using the Dreampad showed a decrease in sleep problems and improvements in emotional, social and school functioning.
