British and Irish Lion, Ireland and Leinster loosehead prop, Cian Healy, has been appointed as brand ambassador for leading bed manufacturer Kaymed.

As a performance athlete at the height of his profession, Cian understands the value of a bed that incorporates comfort, support and the very latest technology to keep him in peak condition.

“Sleep is a critical component of my training regime that is always being emphasized by the coaching staff. I have to report my sleep times every morning as a poor night’s sleep slows me down, affects my focus and prevents me giving my all to training,” says Cian.

“When I do enjoy 7 hours sleep, it’s a world of difference as I am more alert and have more input into everything.

“I am delighted to be working with Kaymed because it was clear when I met the staff at the factory in Killcullen that they really understand sleep technology. I am excited to have now chosen my Kaymed bed and to see it being made – I can't wait to get into it!”

“I'm extremely pleased that Cian Healy will be working with Kaymed,” commented Kaymed UK Sales Manager, Terry Bridger. “As a top international sportsman, Cian is the ideal ambassador for Kaymed as he understands perfectly the value of sleep in performance for his club and country.

“Kaymed has a robust programme of new product launches and promotional activity starting at the autumn trade shows and the timing of this is perfect.”
