Cradle is a rocking chair made to create a calm, safe, comfortable and relaxing space to dissipate the overstimulation of our senses, which comes as a result of living in today's technologically oriented society. Founded on Autism and Rhythmic Movement Disorder (RMD) research, the Cradle chair aims to help sufferers recuperate. Studies showed that assisted rocking helped calm participants, while being swaddled in a blanket aided in relieving symptoms of stress.
