We had a Sleepingstar Senso for 3 years at home for our daughter. She got a bigger nursing bed, but without the Sleepingstar Senso mattress. We have filed a contradiction and lost. We got a nursing bed with a normal decubitus mattress. After 2 years, the mattress is unusable now. The decubitus mattress had boxes in it, because they get wet often, they are crumbled very fast. Then they were no more boxes, but hillocks – that was not nice. After a new survey, the doctor saw, that the child's health has deteriorated dramatically. The kyphoscoliosis prepares pain if the child lies. After 2 week they approved the Sleepingstar Senso and now I am waiting for the delivery. The 3 years with the Sleepingstar Senso were so great, but without a disaster.

Jette Mother of a disabled child, Denmark

Emil is 5 years old and has epilepsy and infantile autism with a moderately severe mental retarded. Emil has long only been awake for approx. 2 hours where he just laying and waited to go back to sleep, so he was not physically active of the night, so we accepted it. Emil has only a few times slept through the night and he did it so I had to enter and check if he was breathing, it was not normal that he just slept all the way to the morning. In the summer of 2012 was Emil gradually stepped out of one of the pills to his epilepsy. Unfortunately, this resulted in more turmoil both during the day and especially at night when Emil was awake between 3-5 hours each night with full activity. Consequently he plays and trampling all over the apartment during the night so we were worried about neighbors' reaction as he could be heard from the second floor where we live and all the way down to the ground floor. Furthermore, we as parents by being very exhausted because we only slept a few hours each night. Emil is in special kindergarten in Frederikssund and one day the manager gave us information about a special mattress that would help especially insomnia. I immediately contacted the company and got detailed information what the mattress was about, among other things that we could get the mattress to the test in 2 weeks. It sounded too good that it could be true that Emil might be able to sleep through the night. We started to search the municipality if they would pay the mattress to Emil. Since we during the following 2 months had not decision yet, we again contacted Meyland-smith that we wanted to try to get the mattress to the test in the 2 weeks - imagine if it worked!

In the period before we got the mattress for testing had Emil been constantly awake for 3-4 hours every night with full activity where his father was kicked out of bed and we could otherwise both run around the living room and the bedroom after Emil to minimize that he blustered too much He should not wake up his older brother at almost 8 years of age. So in desperation I thought we constantly imagined if the mattress was working. The first night Emil slept on the mattress he was awake almost 2 hours but he was laying quietly and just fell asleep again without problems. During the 2 weeks both we and the kindergarten saw a remarkable change - also during the day where he did not have the same turmoil anymore. At the end of the 2 weeks testing period Emil suddenly slept through 2 nights in a row. Absolutely fantastic!

So final result of the mattress was less turmoil in the daytime and max awake around. 2 hours a night, otherwise he sleeps through approx. 1-2 times a week and it has a surplus of both his parents to be more active in everyday life for both Emil and his older brother. Furthermore, the neighbor on the ground floor asked whether something happened to Emil as she did not hear him anymore at night time, and we replied yes he had a new mattress that was indeed something very special. At the end of the story as it helped that the municipality could see such a satisfactory pattern of Emil's life and sleep patterns that they have paid the mattress as a consumption good where we pay 750.00 kr and they pay the rest. It was our history and experience we did with mattress hoping it can benefit others and give courage that there may be solutions to everyday turmoil and nightly problems.

Customer of Meyland Smith from Denmark

A little bedtime story. Our son Marcus is a happy and energetic boy of 5 years - until Marcus was 3 years he slept without any problem. He fell asleep and slept heavily all night. When Marcus became big brother, he was 3 ½ years old, and at this time aggravated his sleep patterns drastically over a period of just over 2 years. Marcus now had difficulty falling asleep - had a hard time finding peace both physically and mentally. When at last he has fallen asleep it takes a few hours only before Marcus wakes up again, for some unknown reason, and was in most nights awake just until the early morning. For well over a year ago we started consulting physicians and they ordinated Marcus with Melatonin in the hope that it would help Marcus to a better sleep. Marcus soon fell asleep on Melatonin, and could some day keep him sleeping all night. When we one day learned about the "Sleeping Star - Mattress" from a leaflet - we immediately took contact to the company which marked these articles in Denmark and quickly got a mattress for testing. It turns out that the mattress has an enormous effect on Marcus' sleep rhythm - Marcus now declines rapidly to rest and sleep heavily through pretty much every night - mattress makes Marcus falls in a healthy and deep sleep and gives him the bodily sensation, which he has needed. Given that Marcus is sleeping at night again, we have become a lot more happy and energetic family when we all get our sleep. We've even got the mattress appropriated by the municipality in no time, as it soon turned out that the Sleeping Star was a huge success for our family.
