Sleepypod and Assisi Animal Health Introduce Next Generation Technology for Inflammation and Pain Management in Small Animals

It’s a treatment space that can be used at home or on the go.




The Assisi Loop Lounge is incorporated into the Sleepypod.

(PRESS RELEASE) PASADENA, CA — Sleepypod and Assisi Animal Health introduce the Assisi Loop Lounge, a total body non-pharmaceutical, anti-inflammatory device designed to accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain in small animals. It is the result of collaboration between Sleepypod, a Pasadena-based company known for redefining pet products, and Assisi Animal Health, a New York-based company that is a vanguard in creating non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory medical technology.

Assisi Loop technology is nestled in the Ultra Plush bedding of Sleepypod Air or Sleepypod Atom carrier models, creating a contained, comfortable treatment space that can be used at home or on the go. Therapy is delivered by multiple applicator coils embedded in cushioned, foam therapy pads. The pad has a 10-inch treatment depth that assures nose-to-tail and toes-to-top-of-ears treatment. A controller box containing rechargeable batteries can deliver 60 treatments on a single charge and last four years before replacement.

The Assisi Loop Lounge is the only therapeutic pet bed that incorporates a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared, prescription-only pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology that is proven in both human and pet research. Peer-reviewed clinical research in veterinary medicine may be found here.

The Assisi Loop Lounge uses Assisi Loop targeted pulsed electromagnetic field (tPEMF) technology to deliver a micro-current targeting the body’s own anti-inflammatory process. The micro-current enhances nitrous oxide production, accelerating the healing of soft and hard tissues, including the skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, and organs. The Loop Lounge is effective treatment alone and can be used adjunctive to other therapies. Learn more about tPEMF technology here.

Sleepypod’s multifunctional carriers have earned multiple awards and honors for design innovation and safety, to include top ratings through independent testing from Center for Pet Safety. Sleepypod is the first pet products manufacturer to crash test its carriers at U.S., Canadian, and European child safety restraint standards. Watch the tests here.


“Our collaboration with Sleepypod is based on the superior design, construction, and safety features included in all their carriers,” says L. John Wilkerson, Chairman of Assisi Animal Health. “Assisi is proud of our resulting product and its potential to advance the standard of care, and of caring, that we can offer our pets.“

“Sleepypod carriers have transformed how pets travel,” says Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder. “As a leader in non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory technology, Assisi Animal Health is an ideal collaborative partner to Sleepypod. Through this collaboration, we as a team are moving the ball forward in companion animal care by delivering an innovative approach to body healing and pain relief.”
