SAFFRON / Smart Recliner Chair

SAFFRON

Sleep deprivation leads to problems in general health such as obesity, diabetes and stroke as well as heart attack and death. It is recommended to have quick napping because it improves cognitive ability, stress reduction, perception ability and athletic ability.

There are also potential threat of Cervical Disc Disease and Neck Pain from the long term usage of heavy VR headset. Even though Sony has become market leader, Virtual Reality is facing significant obstacles in acceptance in actual reality because a regular chair does not guarantee long-term comfort.

Saffron promises the ultimate experience in comfort, just like Porsche.
