Hugga Sleep System

The Hugga Sleep System designed by leading neuro-physiotherapists for adults and paediatrics can offer postural support in both supine and side lying. It offers a practical easy to use solution that can be integrated into your care plan.

The Hugga demonstrated in supine, is the first universal sleep system of its kind. Research proves that sleep systems reduce tone/tension, prevent or delay contractures and/or structural deformity, help improve respiratory function and avoidance of tissue damage

The Hugga can benefit:

  • People who find it hard to move are most at risk of developing body shape distortions because they sit or lie in limited positions
  • Failure to protect a persons body shape can have serious consequences
  • The earlier the intervention the better

The Hugga Sleep System provides external postural control and support during sleep for adults and children. It can be used in either supine or side lying and is very simple to apply

Case Studies

"As a Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist who works with postural management equipment on a daily basis, I have found that the Hugga sleep-system provides an excellent cost-effective solution for clients with altered postures. For me, the key features for an effective system is compliance and comfort for the client whilst optimising their postures, and acceptance and ease of application for the nursing team. The Hugga sleep-system achieves this at a very competitive price.” -Simon Berrell MCSP. Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist
"Using The Hugga system has resulted in demonstrable and measurable clinical improvements, protection or maintenance of body shape for my clients. It's design and ease of use provides a cost effective and simple but highly effective solution to postural care. Compliance is exceptionally high because the client finds it comfortable and acceptable and because informal or commissioned carers find it easy to use, reducing carer stress and time demands." -Aurndra Golden Occupational Therapist
"People with severe and complex neurological disability often require a holistic approach to help manage their postural problems. The “Hugga” is a simplistic approach to night time postural support and is readily accepted by the user; carers find it easy to use and it is flexible in terms of side and supine lying.” Gail Russell, Occupational Therapist
“I have tried other sleep-systems which all have their negative features and a high price. The Hugga however provides a high level of support and comfort that I require whilst maintaining “airflow” around my body”. Client Mr W H
“The Hugga sleep-system is easy to apply and my client looks very comfortable lay in a symmetrical and supported position whilst using it. If he coughs or spasms the system is flexible enough to allow the movement to occur, and then return to the optimal position. After rejection of other systems, my client loves the Hugga and uses it every day”. Carer
