Pasadena pet care company Sleepypod has partnered with New York-based Assisi Animal Health to introduce the Assisi Loop Lounge, which they describe as a total body non-pharmaceutical, anti-inflammatory device designed to accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain in small animals.
“Sleepypod carriers have transformed how pets travel,” Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder, said. “As a leader in non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory technology, Assisi Animal Health is an ideal collaborative partner to Sleepypod. Through this collaboration, we as a team are moving the ball forward in companion animal care by delivering an innovative approach to body healing and pain relief.”
The Assisi Loop Lounge, nestled in the Ultra Plush bedding of Sleepypod’s Air or Atom carrier models, creates a contained, comfortable treatment space that can be used at home or on the go, a Sleepypod statement said Tuesday.
Therapy is delivered by multiple applicator coils embedded in cushioned, foam therapy pads. The pad has a 10-inch treatment depth that assures nose-to-tail and toes-to-top-of-ears treatment.
A controller box containing rechargeable batteries can deliver 60 treatments on a single charge and last four years before replacement.
The Assisi Loop Lounge is the only therapeutic pet bed that incorporates a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared, prescription-only pulsed electromagnetic field technology that “is proven in both human and pet research,” Sleepypod said.
Assisi’s targeted pulsed electromagnetic field (tPEMF) technology delivers a micro-current targeting the body’s own anti-inflammatory process. The micro-current enhances nitrous oxide production, accelerating the healing of the pet’s soft and hard tissues, including the skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, and organs.
Sleepypod in Pasadena assembles multifunctional pet carriers that have earned multiple awards and honors for design innovation and safety and top ratings through independent testing from Center for Pet Safety.
Sleepypod is the first pet products manufacturer to crash test its carriers at U.S., Canadian, and European child safety restraint standards.
“Our collaboration with Sleepypod is based on the superior design, construction, and safety features included in all their carriers,” L. John Wilkerson, Chairman of Assisi Animal Health, said. “Assisi is proud of our resulting product and its potential to advance the standard of care, and of caring, that we can offer our pets.”
The Assisi Loop Lounge is available in two sizes: the Sleepypod Atom measures 17 x 8.5 x 10.5 inches and features one therapy pad, recommended for pets 12 pounds or less. It’s available in Jet Black, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Red, Robin Egg Blue and True Violet.
The Sleepypod Air measures 22 x 10.5 x 10.5 inches and features three therapy pads, recommended for pets 17.5 pounds or less. It’s available in Jet Black, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Red, Orange Dream, Glacier Silver, Robin Egg Blue and True Violet.
