World first in science of sleep

A director at a Cramlington firm has become the world’s only professor of sleep science.

Jason Ellis, director of sleep science and research at Mammoth Technologies, also runs the Sleep Research Centre at Northumbria University.

He joined the Mammoth team in 2012 following the company’s long-standing collaboration between Mammoth Technologies and the Sleep Research Centre, helping the company develop the only mattress clinically proven to enhance sleep. Professor Ellis said: “A good night’s sleep is essential for health.

“Many people are not getting the right amount of sleep, which can be due to a number of factors but having the right mattress is essential to closing that gap.

“Working with Mammoth to create the perfect mattress is something I am passionate about and the Professorship recognises the time and hard work I’ve spent researching sleep.”
