Approximately 5 years ago I developed a mild form of sleep apnea like millions of Americans today.Â The only way I can sleep is on one side or the other and I have to roll over at least every hour.Â Any knee contact soon became painful so I took a throw pillow and placed it between my knees.
While this worked to a point, when I woke up I had to fish around to find it and place it again.Â Enough of this prompted me to take a regular queen pillow and placedÂ it between my knees.Â This worked well enough staying put but in order to roll over I had to wake up, reach down and force the pillow to roll with me.
The problem I still faced was having to wake up all the time to roll the pillow as I rolled over. This caused me significant sleep deprivation as sleep cycles are generally 90 minutes. And proper sleep is 5 or more full cycles during the night to avoid any sleep deprivation.Â Sleep deprivation is one of the highest health problems in the U.S. today.
After 5 years fighting the pillow I decided to find someone who would sew my idea for the KneeSleeper Pillow.Â A pillow that operates like a sock to stay with you and roll with you during the night.Â No more waking and forcing.
It turned out to work better than I ever dreamed.Â I originally just wanted one for me and found the results to be so good that I wanted to make a product out of the idea to share with the millions of people who suffer as I did.Â I canâ€™t sleep without it now.Â I get as much as 6 hours uninterrupted sleep and feel so much better the next day.Â Some people close to me say Iâ€™m actually a nicer personâ€¦hmmm.
I believe this pillow will help millions of people who suffer the same dilemma I did and isnâ€™t the goal of helping people live better lives the most rewarding thing to do with our creative minds and energies?
