Sleep obviously plays an important role in your physical health, as it is involved in healing and repairing both the heart and blood vessels, as well as helping our bodies to recover from muscle fatigue and muscle pain and even enhancing muscle repair and muscle recovery through protein synthesis and human growth hormone release. However, one of the most enjoyable parts of sleeping is that awesome feeling that we get after flipping over our pillow and feeling the refreshing relief that’s provided by the cooler side of the pillow, specially now, during these hot Summer days where we have some really, really hot nights. Sadly, this usually only happens every few hours, meaning you can only do it once or twice per night, as our bodies are usually so hot that it takes a long time for the pillow’s first flipped side (the original side that you were sleeping on, which turned warm at some point) to become refreshing and chilly like the side we turn our pillows to. Nevertheless, there’s a really cool gadget out there that can provide this refreshing relief feeling on a constant basis. This brings us to the Moona Active Cooling Pillow Pad.
The Moona Active Cooling Pillow Pad is a unique smart home device that basically works as a machine learning smart pillow. The smart pod (which is the main unit that’ll be attached to the Moona Pillow Pad – both discussed ahead) accurately reads and understands your sleeping patterns and then regulates your pillow’s temperature so that you can have your head feeling refreshed and relaxed, which should in theory help you get the best possible sleep.
We’ve all experienced that horrible feeling of having our bodies feeling super hot during the hot Summer days. Furthermore. sleeping in a hot room is usually quite unpleasant, as temperature is the key to a good sleep.
To have an easy time falling asleep, our bodies generally need to cool down. At the same time, lower temperatures are proven to have a positive impact in our sleep quality.
On the other hand, when waking up, the situation is completely the opposite, as our bodies need to warm up so that we can start feeling energized enough to get up and start our days. As such, our head obviously plays a critical role in this body temperature regulation process.
That’s exactly why the Moona Active Cooling Pillow Pad can help to improve your sleep quality, as it is designed to regulate your pillow temperature so that you can have an easier time falling asleep as well as waking up.
Now, let’s have a more detailed look at this ingenious health and sleep quality gadget and check exactly how it works as well as everything that it has to offer.
DESIGN & SPECS
The Full Set
The entire set just integrates three different things: The Moona Smart Pod, The Moona Pillow Pad, and the Mobile App (which is optional to use, as the Moona set can be used without the App).
The Moona Smart Pod
The Moona Smart Pod is a super-quiet bedside device that’s placed on top of your your night stand (meaning right next to your bed) that’s works as a heating water pump that’s used to regulate the temperature of the water that’ll be constantly flowing within the Moona Pillow Pad.
This small bedside water pump is quieter than a whisper, as well as three (x3) times quieter than a fan/AC unit, so noise during its operation should never be a problem.
By using either the pod’s interface (which is located at the top of the device) or the Smartphone Companion App (The Moona App – discussed at the very end of the article), users can control the temperature of the water that flows between the pump unit and the pillow pad from 64°F to 95°F (18°C – 35°C).
Thanks to this bedside water pump solution you can ultimately have a fresh pillow pad that’s smartly kept at a constant chosen refreshing temperature without having any electronics under your head, which could ultimately be bad for your health because of their transmitted energy waves.
The device’s water tube, which measures around 5 ft. long can be found at the back of the Moona Smart Pod, right under the device’s other two power ports. Above all those cables, there’s also a simple On/Off Power Button.
Since this bedside device works as a water pump, you obviously have to fill up your Moona Smart Pod with some water, and that can be easily done from the top right side of the device.
There’s also a small vertical water level window that’s located right under the little door that’s opened to pour water into the unit. This water level window just features a Max Water Level indicator that makes it super intuitive and easy to fill (or refill) the device with water.
The Moona Pillow Pad
Now, moving on to the Moona Pillow Pad, this is just a small, yet efficient Cooling Pillow Pad that works based on a unique active thermo-regulation system that helps users to keep their pillow constantly cool.
The entire pillow pad unit is compatible with all pillows, as it measures exactly just 19 inches wide by 13.4 inches high, and it is also less than 1 inch thick (48 x 34 x 3 cm).
The Moona Pillow Pad is not exactly a pillow. Basically, its just a thick, quilted memory foam pad that’s supposed to be placed inside your pillowcase, together with your pillow. As such, all you have to do is open up your pillow case and place the Moona Pillow Pad right on top of your own pillow.
Inside the Moona Pillow Pad you can find some high-quality memory foam that makes using the pillow pad actually quite nice, making it feel nice and comfortable during sleep. As such, thanks to this memory foam, lying your head on top of the pillow pad during your sleeping sessions will never invasive at all.
HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK?
The Moona is the most efficient Cooling Pillow Pad System that’s currently available on the market, and that’s all thanks to its unique active thermo-regulation algorithms, which ultimately help users to keep their pillow constantly cool, even on these hot summer nights.
Basically, the system uses water cooling within its water pump to regulate the pump’s water temperature, and that “somewhat chilly” water is pumped to the Moona Pillow Pad, which then focused on a user’s head and neck area to ultimately help their bodies’ temperature to lower faster so that they can have an easier time relaxing and falling asleep.
As mentioned at the beginning of the article, our bodies usually need to cool down before we can actually fall asleep (unless we are literally so exhausted that we just fall asleep on top of our beds), and that’s because lower temperatures are proven to have a positive impact in our sleep quality, helping us both to fall asleep better and faster, as well as having a better sleep quality overall during each and every night.
Lastly, it’s also worth to mention that the Moona System’s temperature is fully determined by your personal profile, which can be configured by using the device’s simple and intuitive interface (at the top of the pod unit) or via the Smartphone App, which ultimately makes Moona the perfect configurable smart sleeping system for anyone that has a harder time falling asleep due to hot nights.
BOX CONTENTS & SET UP / INSTALLATION
As mentioned before, for the system to work, you’ll have to fill up the Moona Smart Pod (the system’s dedicated water pump) with water, but worry not, as setting up the unit is incredibly easy.
Your entire Moona System comes neatly packed in a cardboard package that, from top to bottom, includes: a User Manual, one (x1) Moona Pod, an included Carrying Travel Case with the system’s Moona Pillow Pad, a Power Cable, and a Funnel (to make it easier for users to refill the unit’s water tank), as well as one (x1) Power Plug Adapter.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The Moona App
By using the Smartphone App, users can configure different temperature profile that can be adjusted according to their needs, as well as set different sleeping profiles that can also be configured at any point.
The App also accounts for an in-App gentle alarm that uses temperature regulation to help users have an easier time waking up.
There’s also a Nap Mode that can be activated for users to take a quick, yet extremely relaxing nap on top of their Moona Pillow Pad.
Additionally, the App also provides users with detailed insights about their sleep quality and sleep patterns, while also offering them tips on how to sleep better by educating each user about good sleeping habits that they can adopt.
The Moona Active Cooling Pillow Pad is a machine learning smart pillow that works together with a bedside smart pod that accurately reads and understands your sleeping patterns to regulate your pillow’s temperature so that you can have your head feeling refreshed and relaxed to ultimately have an easier time falling asleep and have a better sleep quality overall.
With this smart sleeping system, you have a constant temperature regulation that’sused around your head/neck area to help you fall asleep faster, get a deeper sleep and wake up in a gentler way.
While cooler temperatures help you fall asleep faster and get deeper sleep, a progressively raising temperature wakes you up gently during each and every morning.
If you’re interested in buying the Moona Active Cooling Pillow Pad System, each set is currently going for $399, but you’ll also be glad to know that if you decide to get two (x2) sets instead of one, that’ll only cost you $748 (saving you $50 in total), and each set comes together with a 30-day Trial Period as well as a 1-Year Limited Warranty.
