My name is Emer Flannery, I am the founder and CEO of Kocoono™. My background is in Psychology and I have worked with people literally all over the world with varying mental health needs. I began to notice that sleep often contributed to my clients problems and when they could not sleep they would then become anxious, easily frustrated and problem solving skills would go out the window and lack of sleep would lend a hand to this vicious cycle or lethargy and unhappiness.
The Kocoono™ idea was actually brought about by accident in 2012 when I designed and produced a weighted lap-pad for a child with autism that I was working with. As I had some material left over I decided to make another one and sell it on ebay. The idea to produce Kocoono™ on a bigger scale was then formed. I traveled over the years since and it is only now that I am the position to get the ball rolling and reignite my love for this product and for helping people to alleviate mental distress through a good nights sleep.
I use a Kocoono™ Weighed Blanket myself every night and so I understand first hand the quality it needs to be in order to promote the quality sleep and have the maximum benefits to the end user.
