San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2010 -- The new Embrace Sleep Collar Travel Pillow, from Designs in Progress, is a breakthrough in travel comfort. The unique combination of Memory Foam and High Resiliency Foam makes for a comfortable, lightweight, and compact travel pillow. New wicking fabrics used in the washable cover keep the pillow cool. The patented design provides full support, keeping the head and neck in proper alignment, allowing travelers to fully relax.
Many people find that the travel pillows currently available are more uncomfortable than wearing nothing at all. All too often, travelers arrive fatigued and with a stiff neck that can last for hours or even days. Standard travel pillows, including Memory Foam travel pillows, are bulky and poorly designed for their purpose. The inflatables dont breathe, smell funny, and can leak. Designs in Progress knew there had to be a better way. Consulting with doctors, flight attendants, and fashion designers, Designs in Progress set out to find the solution to the travel pillow problem. Posture equals Comfort. Standard travel pillows push your head forward and most have no support under the chin. The Embrace Sleep Collar gives full support to the front and the sides of the head and neck. In two separate focus groups, individuals were seated in actual high back airline chairs and tested the Embrace Sleep Collar against other models. Every participant preferred the Sleep Collar. A flight attendant wrote that it solved the "head-bob" effect. Dr. Kirsti Neely, a San Francisco chiropractor says "Maintaining proper alignment while traveling or sleeping upright is not only important with regards to personal comfort, but vital in reducing stress, soreness and preventing injury". "Having tested countless prototypes with different shapes, foams, and fabrics, the Embrace Sleep Collar embodies comfort by design", says Tim Duncan, Vice President Product Development. "The new wicking fabric used in the cover is the same technology used in the latest generation running shirts and keeps the pillow cool", he added. "It all weighs less than a baseball cap". The Embrace Sleep Collar includes the following features: Memory Foam for comfort High Resiliency Foam for support Washable cover made of high-tech wicking fabric to keep cool Lightweight and compact - less than 3 ounces Available in 5 colors
