A sleep pod is closed personal environment in which to rest, relax and recharge. Sleep pods enable people to rest in full privacy, and are popular in many work places due to their space efficiency compared to a nap room. A short period of rest has allows workers to boost their productivity, and it is for this reason that many workplaces choose to install sleep pods.

The pods have smooth sliding doors that easily open and close for convenient access into and out of the pods.  We recommend a short rest (<25 minutes) as this will allow you to gain the benefits of a nap without experiencing ‘sleep inertia’ – the lingering grogginess that sometimes occurs if we wake up in the middle of a sleep cycle.

There are many scientific studies documenting the benefits of a short rest throughout the work day. See for example this study about the benefits of regular napping on neurocognition, or this study about how regular napping can lower the risk of heart disease.

There is also evidence to suggest that fatigued employees costs companies billions in lost productivity. 

To put it simply, companies use sleep pods, nap pods, and similar products to increase employee health, boost productivity and increase the year-end results.
