Relax and Revitalize in a New Lounger That Gently Sways Users Into a 20-Minute Power Nap

KLAFS USA launches the SWAY Sleep Lounger, delivering a stylish, comfortable, and laboratory-tested napping solution for the home, office, spa or wellness center

Sleep is crucial for our overall wellness, and we all know how important it is to get a good night's rest. But did you know that a quick afternoon nap can also have incredible benefits for your health and well-being? Lack of sleep can lead to serious health issues, including heart disease, depression, weight gain, inflammation, and sickness. Additionally, lack of concentration, focus, and reaction time can impact our daily lives. That's where the SWAY Sleep Lounger from KLAFS USA comes in.

The SWAY Sleep Lounger is a game-changer for anyone who needs to recharge during the day. Its gentle oscillating movement has been engineered to simulate a sway of 7.5 meters, the optimum frequency for synchronizing and slowing the brain waves, which can soothe you into a relaxing 15- to 20-minute nap. The pendulum swing was tested and studied at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany, where users were monitored and shown to have significantly improved Heart Rate Variability (HRV) within moments of lying down, causing sleep to take hold faster.

Naps have long been a staple in many cultures - no one frowns upon a “siesta” in Spain; in Japan, workday power naps are encouraged to alleviate their typically low (less than 6) nighttime sleep hours. Sleep experts say a 20-minute nap is optimal for getting the restorative benefits of sleep without adversely affecting your ability to fall asleep at night. Any longer and the body enters “deep sleep” and waking from that stage leads to grogginess and poor performance. The SWAY's 20-minute run time means users awake refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the day.

The benefits of the SWAY's pendulum movement are numerous. It blurs your perception of time and space, relaxes your muscles, slows down your breathing, quiets your mind, and promotes physical and mental recovery. Plus, a quick nap can take the stress out of your nighttime's tossing and turning, while giving you back some of the goodness you'd get from a full night's sleep.

Made-to-order in KLAFS' factory in Germany, the lounger is available in six colors (white, beige, taupe, cognac, chocolate, and black) and the backrest can be automatically adjusted for comfort via a control button. The SWAY features a high-quality viscoelastic foam layer for an optimal fit to the body's contours. The firmly padded layer is covered with waterproof, high-quality synthetic leather (nappa quality), with stitching in contrasting colors. The oscillating movement is provided by specially engineered kinematics, laser-precision components, and high-grade, long-lasting deep groove ball bearings.

So, if you're looking for a quick and effective way to recharge during the day, consider the SWAY Sleep Lounger as the latest addition to at-home wellness suites, or commercial spas, fitness centers, conferences and trade shows. It’s also a great workplace wellness amenity for promoting creativity and concentration during the workday. To learn more about the SWAY, visit; email for commercial pricing.
