This entrepreneur says he's created a weapon for sleepless parents with kids haunted by frightening bouts of night terror.
"It's like a terrible temper tantrum, but your child's asleep through the entire episode. And up until now, there has been no solution," said Varun Boriah.
Boriah told CNBC his solution is Lully, a start-up he co-founded with Dr. Andy Rink, a general surgeon.
Both were fellows at Stanford's medical device design entrepreneurship program. And, as it turned out, some of Rink's relatives had suffered from night terrors.
"We saw just how many parents and children were suffering from this very common sleep disorder and we wanted to design a safe and simple solution," Boriah said.
