Q: Is SleepStik easy to use?
A: There will likely be a small learning curve to adjusting SleepStik to your personal comfort. You can also expect to shift around in your seat for a minute or two as you learn to trust SleepStik’s ability to hold your head up. Once you have adjusted the Head Loop for the proper circumference and height setting, you will likely never need to adjust them until you need to wash it, or until you loan it to someone who changes these two settings. No tools required!
Please note that sitting for long periods of time will always be an uncomfortable experience. SleepStik will not relieve all discomfort issues. However, you will likely find that it will substantially reduce neck, shoulder and upper back pain.
Q: Will wearing SleepStik make me look cool?
A: No! But it is likely that you will look cooler than the person sitting next to you who is trying to prop their head up with a pillow, or doubled over onto their food tray. However, you may feel cool for being one of the first to know about this revolutionary new product.

A: No! Under no circumstances should you use this product while driving.

Q: What is the history of SleepStik?
A: SleepStik was invented by Rick Riday, an American inventor and free-lance product engineer living in the Seattle area. He first got the idea while suffering from neck pain on a long flight in the year 2015. However, due to other life commitments, he didn’t start a serious development and refinement process until 2018. As an experienced prototype fabricator, he built and tested many iterations of the concept, and suffered through many sleepless and painful nights of testing the prototypes he built. Many of his initial attempts were very, very bad in that they caused severe pain, sometimes within minutes after the start of testing. After many attempts and failures, the idea for the current form factor came to him while traveling in November of 2018. The next prototype he built after returning home yielded a nearly perfect result! The product was launched of online sales in October of 2019. The Support Structure parts are molded in Everett, Washington, and the Head Loop assemblies are fabricated in Shenzhen, China. Product assembly and retail shipping originate in Washington State.
