Introduction to MetroNaps EnergyPod

Benefits of Napping


Research conducted at the Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital (Northport, NY) concluded that a short sleep can improve cognitive functioning and alertness, resulting in a 30% decline in attention failures from baseline measure.


Lack of sleep causes workers to perform at subpar levels. Harvard researchers estimate that sleep deprivation costs America $63.2 billion in lost productivity every year.


A study of Hiroshima University, Department of Behavioral Sciences (Higashi-hiroshima, Japan) shows that naps improve performance level and self-confidence of task performance.


Researchers at the University of Düsseldorf concluded that even an ultra short period of sleep is sufficient to enhance memory processing.


The MetroNaps EnergyPod is the world’s first chair designed uniquely for napping in the workplace.

The ZeroChair is an elegant and comfortable reclining chair for napping in the workplace.

    Matt Jones from Virgin Active Health Clubs is confident napping will become the new coffee break for stressed out workers:

    “We’ve actually had people who have joined the club specifically for the sleep pods.”

    “Since the EnergyPods were installed in Wesleyan’s main library and science library, they have been a huge hit!

    Initial comments from students and alumni were that the pods looked great, both in the very traditional main library and in the 1970s’ era science library. After students began using them, they commented that the pods provide privacy in a public space, and allow students to rest for a short while and then wake up refreshed. This is particularly important during reading week and exams, when students can literally spend days in the library.”

    Saint Leo University

    “Studies have shown that sleep deprivation can have a negative effect on college student’s health and performance. Therefore, Saint Leo University designed a Relaxation Room in our new student apartment complex, featuring four MetroNaps EnergyPods. Not only are they uniquely designed, but they work! Following the 20 minute, pre-programmed relaxation session; students, staff and faculty state they feel energized. The Relaxation Room is extremely popular and the Pods have been a huge success within the Saint Leo University community.”

    Huffington Post

    “When we first started the nap rooms, a year and a half ago, people were reluctant to use them. Now, we need to open a third one; they are so overbooked. People blog even about the impact it has on them to just get 20 minutes in the middle of the afternoon.” – As quoted in CBS This Morning, June 12, 2012
