Often times, people have trouble falling asleep due to non-ideal sleeping conditions. Specifically, 20% of North Americans that have trouble sleeping say that uncomfortable sleeping temperatures prevent them from achieving a good night's rest . While products such as heating blankets and mattress pads have been available on the market for many years, no consumer product has yet offered the ability to cool in addition to heat the user.This is all about to change with the invention of ThermaCool's Perfect Balance temperature controlled mattress pad.

Whether the night is too cold or too hot, the Perfect Balance mattress pad will automatically and discreetly heat up or cool down to maintain the user's pre-defined, desired sleeping temperature.
