Simba’s mission has always been to help the world sleep better, to counter the disastrous health effects of poor sleep via technological innovation and design. Following analysis of the body data from 10 million+ sleepers they produced their first, game-changing mattress in 2016, and have gone on to create a range of innovative products that provide accessible sleep solutions.
