Lully device prevents night terrors
Is your child’s nightmare not letting you sleep at night? The solution to these sleepless nights might be Lully, a device that claims to stop nightmares. It was developed by doctor Andy Rink and engineer Varun Boriah after studying sleep patterns along with their teammates at Stanford University.
The device uses precisely timed vibrations to help children who suffer from night terrors to adopt a healthy sleep pattern. It learns the child’s sleep patterns and vibrates for a few minutes before the night terrors to gently pull the child into a lighter sleep stage.
Rink and Boriah worked with sleep researchers in a clinical study to test the effectiveness of their device, recruiting participants between 2 and 12 years old. Lully was able to prevent 90 percent of night terrors during the tests.
The Lully should be placed under the mattress near the child’s torso. It can be used with a smartphone, which will receive notifications from the app whenever the Lully pod should be activated. Treatment should be done every night for four weeks but if the nightmares return, the process can be restarted.
