Reclaim Your Vitality with a Good Night's Sleep
Roger Sramek is an inventor, businessman, best-selling author and renowned expert in the biomechanics of sleep. In 2015 he co-founded LEVELSleep, where he currently leads product development with the goal of improving the lives of people all over the world through more productive sleep and less pain.
Mr. Sramek began his career in banking and international real estate finance until the "Big Bang" in London in 1997 led him to contemplate changing careers. It was during this critical period that he had a memorable exchange with a mentor who encouraged him to adapt a “stop talking and start doing” mantra, exit the business world, and pursue his passion of inventing products that would help both people and the planet.
His girlfriend, an incessant snorer, inspired Mr. Sramek’s first invention in 1997: a foam pillow designed for quieter sleep. His first prototype was created using an electric carving knife, and the results surpassed his expectations; the pillow reduced her snoring and reduced facial wrinkles due to the positioning of her head and face. He took his invention to The Stanford Center for Human Sleep Research and conducted three clinical, peer-reviewed studies that were published in 1998. The results were dramatic, demonstrating that the pillow reduced snoring by 78 percent and improved sleep apnea. This early success and interest from the scientific community validated Mr. Sramek’s theory that there was a white space in the market for better sleep systems and sent him on a 12-year journey to reinvent the way people think about and value sleep.
Shortly after the success of the pillow creation, Mr. Sramek had lunch with “the father of sleep medicine,” Dr. Dement of Stanford University, who challenged him to invent a mattress. Over the next several years, and with the help of others, Mr. Sramek turned his attention to creating a mattress that could help people sleep better and experience less pain. The result was a mattress that features three different firmness zones corresponding with the shoulders, torso and hips. This patented technology was aptly named TriSupport and has since been clinically tested and proven to improve sleep satisfaction and reduce tossing, turning, stiffness, and pain.
In 2014, Mr. Sramek published a #1 best-selling book, Your Sleep: Wake Up Refreshed, and met JJ Abodeely, a successful portfolio manager who was seeking a better sleep solution for himself and his wife. After a period of talking, dreaming, and later securing financing, LEVELsleep was born. Now Mr. Sramek’s pillow is being used by tens of thousands of satisfied customers and the LEVELsleep mattress is the mattress of choice for professional athletes, top doctors in sleep medicine, and anyone looking to live a healthier life and achieve uninterrupted, deeply restorative and less painful sleep. Mr. Sramek continues to work on his inventions and to refine LEVELsleep products to stay at the forefront of sleep science. He is the holder of eight issued patents and six pending patents across a variety of industries.
Mr. Sramek holds a bachelor’s degree in pre-med from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and earned his MBA from Adelphi University in Long Island. He sits on the Board of Directors of Plus5 Inc., as a founder and patent holder for his proprietary technology to recycle tires and rubber scraps into carbon, steel, gas, oil and energy. He is also active on the board of ThinkOutofTheCup, a not-for-profit organization that teaches agriculture and sustainability to kids, starting with their parents’ normally-thrown-away coffee cup, lid, and napkin.
When he is not inventing, he enjoys rowing and sailing on the beautiful San Francisco Bay. He can frequently be found traveling around the country giving talks and sharing the tremendous amount of knowledge he has about the biomechanics, importance, and attainability of a good night’s sleep. Mr. Sramek lives in Northern California, has three adult children and two grandchildren, all of whom love sleep as much as he does.
