Innovations to improve sleep for insomnia
For many of us, the stresses of work and modern day living in the digital era have encroached into our bedtime, eating away the precious hours of sleep that our body requires for the healthy functioning of both the brain and the physical body. Insufficient sleep impairs both our mental and physical well-being, and the consequences of insufficient sleep can lead to serious health implications over the long run. In this post, we discuss new innovations that can improve the quality of our sleep, especially for insomnia sufferers.
Yes, you’ve heard it right. Why not enlist the aid of a sleep robot created specifically to help improve your sleep? The science-backed, sleep companion that is snuggleable works by training the user with immersive breathing exercises that are proven to calm the mind and body for a more restful sleep. With its smart sensors responding to the user in real-time, it responds to your breathing proactively, matching your breathing patterns and gradually adjusting to the ideal rate for deep sleep. By holding the sleep robot to your chest when you sleep, it simulates an appropriate breathing rhythm for falling asleep that you automatically start to mimic, relaxing your body and signalling to your brain that it’s time to sleep.
With the increasingly sophisticated use of data especially in the realm of the Internet of Things (IoT), aside from wearable fitness trackers such as fitbits and smart watches to track our sleep quality where you can assess how much light, deep and REM sleep you get and receive tips to help you improve your overall sleep quality. Advanced options such as smart beds can help to address your insomnia problems by first collecting data through the embedded sensors and then adjusting itself to help you achieve a higher quality of sleep by adjusting mattress firmness, comfort and support levels depending on your sleeping positions as well as regulating mattress temperature.
Intelligent Snoring Aids
Perhaps you are suffering from sleeplessness from your partner’s snoring problems? Consider trying out a snoring aid that is intelligent enough to gently adjust your pillow to alleviate snoring whenever your partner starts to snore. Built-in with a sensitive microphone, smart snoring aids listen for early sounds of snoring and set it into motion before your partner’s snoring becomes loud enough to disrupt sleep. As snoring begins, the padded, inflatable pillow insert silently and gently moves your head to stimulate the relaxed throat muscles, allowing the airway to assume its natural position – the brilliant design eliminates the need for any physical contact.
