Kryo, Inc., the parent company of sleep technology firm ChiliSleep, announced today that it has paired with veteran group Grey Team Inc. as part of a multiphase partnership exploring the role sleep plays in veteran’s physical and mental health. Specifically, the two companies will be participating in an IRB sleep study with Florida Atlantic University to examine the role sleep plays in improving veterans’ bodies and minds using the ChiliSleep system.
“ChiliSleep’s commitment to study the role of sleep in veterans’ physical and mental health is a huge step forward for our organization, as is everything we do in the name of ending U.S. Military suicide. When a veteran contacts Grey Team, they’re immediately connected to our wellness professionals and provided the support to develop a life-saving plan to help veterans navigate the challenges they’re facing and empower them to move forward. Because we’re veterans ourselves, we’re able to empathize with the complex issues that can develop,” said Cary Reichbach, Founder of Grey Team.
More About the Partnership
In addition to its participation in the clinical trials, ChiliSleep will also be dedicating resources to Grey Team’s efforts in the following ways:
- ChiliSleep will be hosting a free giveaway for veterans who are pre-registered for a Facebook Live event on November 9 at 1 PM ET in honor of Veteran’s Day. The raffle will feature two Cube with Chilipad Cool Mesh sleep systems (temperature-controlled mattress pads).
- A Cube cooling sleep system, as well as a 15-pound weighted chiliBLANKET (a cooling weighted blanket), will be donated to Gray Team’s onsite tools to help boost overall mental and physical wellbeing.
- An additional 10 Cube sleep systems will be donated to Grey Team for veterans to take home and use to improve their sleep and wellness.
“These efforts are a natural evolution of our long-standing commitment to veterans’ health and wellbeing, and working with Grey Team might be one of the most important partnerships we’ve ever had. The National Sleep Foundation has reported that the most common PTSD-related sleep problems are insomnia, night terrors, and obstructive sleep apnea, so anything we can do to help veterans improve their sleep quality truly matters to us,” said ChiliSleep CEO and Co-Founder Tara Youngblood.
“The fact that ChiliSleep is graciously donating its temperature-regulated sleep systems is a huge win for our program and will continue to provide natural, drug-free approaches to healing veterans from the inside out,” said Reichbach. “With good sleep comes a host of benefits, including stronger immune systems, faster cognitive abilities, more energy to exercise, and improved mental health.”
