HALO Founder Receives 2015 National Leadership Award from Cribs for Kids

Bill Schmid, founder of HALO Innovations, was recently awarded the 2015 Making a Difference National Leadership Award presented by Cribs For Kids. The award recognizes Schmid's ongoing role in safe sleep education.

As a result of a personal tragedy, Schmid began an exhaustive review of medical research available on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Halo Innovations began shortly after with a mission to reduce the number of infant deaths related to SIDS. His first product was an engineered solution to the issue of re-breathing, the Halo Active-Airflow Crib Mattress. The company expanded to include more convenient alternatives to crib blankets with the Halo SleepSack and the SleepSack Swaddle. Halo products are now sold throughout North America and a number of other countries and are used in more than 1,400 hospitals nationwide. Schmid's most recent invention is the Halo Bassinest, a bedside bassinet providing a safe sleep space for infants while still next to parents.
