As we all know a good night sleep is one of the most important factors for leading a healthy life. In order to achieve this, companies are implementing different technologies in creating the perfect mattresses, and are even creating smart beds and pillows. Today we take a look at some devices which help people in improving the quality of sleep.
A research conducted in the US gave shocking results. It shows that 70 million of Americans suffer from disorders of sleep and wakefulness, 10% of people have experienced chronic insomnia, and 25 million adults have obstructive sleep apnea. Even though these statistics are for the United States only, the same problems are affecting a huge population living in these modern times full of fast life and with a focus on making money.
Light is one of the most important factors in maintaining a perfect sleeping pattern. Companies such as Philips, Lumie, and Lumos have created the most famous wake up lights, created to provide an increase of light intensity before you wake up. This is because these lights help the body to wake up naturally. Other companies put focus on low blue nightlight. Blue light suppresses melatonin, the sleep causing hormone, which keeps your brain in alert state.
These companies research technologies which can help reduce blue light and improve the onset and quality of sleep. Screen filters that block blue lights and blue blocking glasses are just a few if the things which help in “destroying” blue light. Apple’s Night Shift and Androids Night Light are softwares which help nullify the blue lights coming from mobile phones. Several smart sleeping objects have also been created so far.
Smart beds improve the safety and efficiency of sleeping. They use technology to sense your movements then automatically adjust firmness, comfort, and support. Sleep number and HiCan are considered to be the top smart beds. A smart pillow improves the quality of sleep because it tracks sleep and makes height adjustments, while also being able to learn to adjust the pillow to the best temperature. The top smart pillows are SleepSmart, Moona smart, and ZEEQ.
There are even smart pajamas designed for children that can tell stories. Aromacare improves sleep quality with aromatherapy. It brings many benefits such as an increase in total sleep time and less wakeful episodes. Aroma diffusers, such as Oittm and Imist, improve the sleeping patterns for residents experiencing mental stress and reduce the settling time to sleep.
Another popular piece of technology used for sleeping are the white noise machines. According to a research by the National Sleep Foundation, 5% of American adults now report using a white noise machine to help get better sleep. These white noises help to drown out sounds which prevent you from either falling asleep or waking up whilst asleep.
These are only some of the major technological breakthroughs created to help people experiencing sleeping difficulties. They have given excellent results so far, and with the constant innovation, they are only going to become more effective. URL: https://www.16best.net/blog/sleep-well-with-technology/
