Randall Redfield is co-founder and CEO of Integrated Listening Systems (iLs). iLs provides a multi-sensory program for improving brain function and emotional regulation while training the brain to process sensory information. iLs’ newest product, the Dreampad, is a specialized pillow that delivers sound through a subtle vibration which stimulates the body’s relaxation response.  The Dreampad was initially developed to help children with autism reduce their anxiety and improve their sleep. Soon after the product release in November 2013, iLs was contacted by parents letting the company know the Dreampad helped their children and was also helping their own sleep. Since then, iLs has initiated multiple studies measuring the effect of the Dreampad on sleep with different conditions, including stress-related sleep difficulties, Parkinson’s, Autism, Alzheimer’s and ADHD. Randall earned a M.A. in International Communications from The American University in Washington, D.C. He lives in Denver, CO with his wife and two boys.
