How Technology Is Revolutionizing the Sleep Industry

One of the most trending topics in the health and fitness arena today is the subject of improving your sleep quality. Many people wonder what the difference is between now and getting a good night’s sleep with the help of a good memory foam mattress or other similar products that help you sleep better at night. Some experts even predict that this could be the end of the age for getting a good night’s sleep because we may live in an information-driven society. The research and development over the last decade have given us excellent new tools for improving sleep.

Here are some of the improved technology that has revolutionized the sleep industry

  • Smart Beds

A Smart Bed is a type of portable bed that has many therapeutic and health benefits. They are perfect if you are a person who has trouble sleeping or has problems with your back or legs from standing for long periods. A Smart Bed allows you to change the angle of the headboard to prevent your neck from stiffening up, which causes the commonly known “Knee Pillow Blues.” This portable bed is also beneficial for those with back pain because it allows for a comfortable flat position for them to sleep on, unlike traditional mattresses that can cause lower back problems. Many people find that by using a combination of a conventional mattress and a Smart Bed, they sleep much better than they ever had before.

  • ·Sleep Apps

Sleep apps can do everything from monitor your sleeping patterns to aid you in falling asleep and stop snoring. REMEMBER, even the most excellent app can’t replace good sleep habits if you’re still struggling to get quality sleep. However, before you download any sleep apps, be sure that your sleeping patterns aren’t all that bad and that there are no obvious warning signs that you may need to improve your sleep hygiene. If your body shows signs of not going to sleep, don’t waste time downloading anything. If your body screams, “I’m tired,” or you know you’re tossing and turning, chances are your sleep patterns are suffering.

In other words, if you think that a sleep tracker app will help you, be sure that your sleep habits are all that bad. If your sleep patterns are acceptable, don’t spend your money on improving sleep quality by downloading a sleep app. Otherwise, you might as well get yourself an iPod and listen to it while you’re lying in bed!

  • Sleep Sensors

One of the most important breakthroughs in technology is that Sleep sensors can be attached to mobile phones and determine a patient’s sleeping patterns. The Sleep sensors work by detecting the brainwaves patterns of the patient, which changes with the sleeping pattern like waking up in the morning, sleeping, and then falling asleep at night. Once the doctors know the frequency of variations in the ways, they can measure the brain waves of the patients and chart their sleeping patterns for proper management. They can even monitor the movements of the patient’s tongue and detect whether it is moving while sleeping.

Another important use of the Sleep sensors is movement analysis. These sensors are attached to the person’s body, and they measure the respiration and heart rate of the person during the night and in the early morning hours when they are awake. The sensors can record these statistics and upload data on your smartphone to track how well you sleep and what you could do to help yourself sleep better.

Apart from these expensive gadgets, another thing that can induce sleep comfortably is a comfortable bed with a cozy mattress and a comfy pillow. But owning a mattress is a different thing and storing a mattress has some preconditions.

  • Smart Duvet
