For Immediate Release:
Today Kocoono weighted blanket launches on crowd-funding site Kickstarter. Starting from €185 for the early bird special, Kocoono is a customizable weighted blanket with a unique shoulder embrace to take the stress of the world off your body and help you sleep.
Based on deep touch pressure stimulation, similar to a hug, Kocoono stimulates pressure points to enable to user to relax by reducing stress and anxiety felt in the body and lends itself to induced relaxation, a sense of calmness and better quality sleep. Sleep deprivation and incidences of anxiety and mental health concerns are on the rise, globally. Kocoono was created to support mental well-being, restfulness and sleep in a natural way.
Kocoono is designed to be 10% of your body weight and comes in 3 weights 5kg, 7kg & 9kg, the weight is evenly distributed across the body through a series of segmented weighted removable strips which can be added or removed based on the users’ preferences. Kocoono comes in 2 colour combinations (Turquoise and navy) and (Grey and Peach) with a fleece and cotton combination designed to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The removable strips are designed in such a way that they can be placed in a fridge/freezer to act as a cooling aid; this is particularly beneficial for those suffering from sports injuries, for those that prefer to sleep cool or for women experiencing hot flushes during menopause.
Our mission for Kocoono is to help people to fall in love with sleep again.
Emer Flannery CEO & Founder of Kocoono
“through my time working in care services over the last 9 years I have found that lack of sleep went hand in hand with mental illness. I first came across the concept of a weighted blanket when I worked with children with autism in 2011. A mother told me how her child benefited from the use of a weighted blanket at home, it had a calming effect when the child was felling agitated or anxious. The child was having issues sitting down in school so I gathered the materials and manufactured a weighted lap-pad for his use in school.
From this experience I developed my first Kocoono for personal use. My experience of using the blanket has led me to develop Kocoono into a commercial product for use as a sleep aid. Personally, Kocoono has made a huge difference to my own quality of sleep and because of this I want to bring it to a wider audience and support others to fall asleep easier, naturally”.
