여행은 재미있지만 장거리를 가거나 제대로 잠을 못 자면 금방 피곤해진다.
사실 여행을 떠나면 비행기나 버스, 자동차 안에서 편하게 잠을 자기는 힘들다.
전 세계 터미널에서 파는 평범한 베개를 구매하여 베고 잔다고 해도 마찬가지다.
이러한 문제를 해결하고자 최근 한 의사가 새로운 아이디어 제품을 내놓았다.
신제품 ‘넵 애니웨어(NapAnywhere)’는 똑똑한 접이식 목 받침대로 어깨에 올려놓으면 안전하게 목을 받쳐주는 역할을 한다.
따라서 이동 중에도 목이 돌아가거나 뻣뻣해지는 현상 없이 편하게 잠을 청할 수 있다.
작은 크기의 ‘넵 애니웨어’는 부드러운 느낌의 외형이 안정적이고 모양변화가 가능한 안쪽을 잘 감싸고 있다.
머리와 어깨에 올려놓고 모양을 잘 잡은 후 선택 사항으로 들어있는 끈을 단단히 조이기만 하면 된다.
이 제품의 장점 중 하나는 사용이 끝난 후 납작하게 만들어 작은 가방에 넣어 다닐 수 있다는 것이다.
따라서 부피가 큰 베개를 가방이나 주머니 안에 밀어 넣느라 했던 고생을 피할 수 있다.
앞으로 이 제품만 있으면 장거리 여행을 할 때 불편한 자세로 잠을 잘 때 생기는 목 결림을 예방할 수 있다.

The NapAnywhere is a minimalist head support device which is part engineering, part architecture, and part origami.
The NapAnywhere is portable enough to fit in your briefcase, backpack or a medium sized handbag.The NapAnywhere is very lightweight (less than 8 ounces). Yet it is designed to comfortably support the weight of your head.
The NapAnywhere starts out as a thin disc. It has a metallic alloy core, which is embedded in soft foam and wrapped in high quality fabric. (Engineering)
You form the NapAnywhere into a shape that molds over your shoulder, along the side of your neck, under your chin, under the side of your head, and along the back of your neck. (Origami)
The NapAnywhere is then ready to comfortably support the weight of your head, allowing your neck muscles to relax. (Architecture)
Remember that the NapAnywhere is a minimalist "head support device" and not an ordinary neck pillow.
The NapAnywhere's design inspires the user to think differently about what is comfortable.
Don't bend your neck and push down, that defeats the purpose of the design. Mold the NapAnywhere to your shape so that your head is held upright with only a slight tilt to one side.
The strap is there to keep the NapAnywhere snugly in place even after you have fallen asleep.
You simply attach the ends of these two straps and that will form an extra large strap.
Certainly if you have any problems with your strap sizes. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our customer service representatives will be there to help you.

As a medical resident over 15 years ago I suffered a neck injury while playing tennis. I herniated the disc at the C5-C6 level. I was debilitated for about eight months. Although I have since recovered from the injury and regained my strength and mobility, whenever I would travel in a car or plane I would unfortunately experience a pain similar to that prior injury. I never want to feel that sensation again.
After spending several years trying to figure out the problem and creating multiple complex prototypes, I abandoned the project. I knew what I needed to do, I just didn't know how to do it. Everything that I had constructed was either too complex or too weird to actually bring to market.
A few years past until I had an "aha" moment on an airplane trip and drew out the NapAnywhere. It has taken several years from the conceptual drawings to finally engineer and manufacture the product.
Please know that the NapAnywhere staff is here to answer your questions and help you benefit from our product.
Just like most things, the concept may not work for everyone. You can always gift the product to a friend or family member who may benefit from it.
I am proud of the fact that we have had much less than 1% returns after shipping thousands of NapAnywheres.
Certainly if you are unsatisfied with the NapAnywhere's performance you can return it for a full refund (only minus the initial postage and handling charges).
We plan on refurbishing returned NapAnywheres and providing them to folks in hospitals and to our military personnel at no cost.
