Sleep devices were a popular topic at this year’s CES 2020. From a pillow that turns a snoring head to a sleep trainer that helps kids understand sleep time, many new devices were on display this year. Here are some of the new sleep tech devices seen at CES this year.
The Loftie Clock is a tech alarm clock that aims at keeping phones out of the bedroom. While the clock does have an app, it doesn’t require the app to operate. Users can set alarms, schedule multiple alarms, alarms that vary day by day and pre-select a playlist on the app or right on Loftie. Sleep playlists can include meditations, soundbaths, breathwork and more. Sleep sounds fade before the sleeper’s alarm goes off, so the transition from asleep to awake is simple.
Zlight is a sleep box that helps users sleep through the night without distractions. Zlight emits a faint light of a certain color during specific periods of the night. If the user wakes up, they don’t have to turn their phone on to check when to wake up, they just have to look at Zlight. With the Zlight app, users can adjust light color and brightness for their preferred time schedule. There are three versions of Zlight. Zlight Lite has light glowing and illumination. Zlight Plus has light glowing, illumination and wireless charging. The Zlight Pro has everything mentioned plus sensors for humidity, temperature and CO2.
iComfort CF4000 mattress and Sleep Score study
Serta Simmons featured the iComfort CF4000 mattress. The mattress has AirSupport™ foam that contours to the sleeper’s body to alleviate aches and pains at the pressure points. With the bed, SleepScore Labs conducted a study to put the customer in the mattress development process. The team tracked and analyzed non-contact measurements while participants used the beds in their own homes. 80% of participants felt sleeping on the iComfort mattress improved their overall sleep. Many reported falling asleep faster and waking up less during the night. The high scores were due to various mattress factors, including feeling cool at night. Serta plans on using these findings to develop and perfect mattresses in the future.
EBB Therapeutics Sleep Wearable
The EBB Therapeutics Sleep Wearable stops a racing and overactive mind, which can cause a lack of sleep. The wearable is a fluid-filled headband that wraps around the head. It cools the forehead using an intelligent cooling algorithm that maintains optimal temperature range through the night. It uses Precision Cool™ Technology to reduce the metabolic activity in the prefrontal cortex. As brain activity declines, the mind calms and the user falls into a deeper sleep.
The DUX Bed is a bed with a smart module. The DUX Smart module controls smart home devices from the bedroom. The modules is Bluetooth, Wifi and Alexa compatible. With the system, users can control Alexa-synched IoT devices, play music and more from their bed. With the DUX app, users can create automated environment settings that sync with other IoT devices. For example, users can create a nighttime environment with dimmed lights and calming music with the DUX module.
Pali Sleep Trainer
The Pali Sleep Trainer helps kids understand when it is time to sleep and be awake. The Pali Trainer displays a ring around the face that is counting down to when it’s time to wake up. The face turns green when the countdown is done. Pali has a reward drawer so parents can provide positive reinforcement for sleeping through the night. Pali is app controlled by parents. It has night and naptime settings, along with nightlight and noise machine capabilities.
The Motion Pillow was created to help people who suffer from chronic snoring. Motion Pillow’s solution box detects, records and analyzes the user’s snoring patterns. When it detects that a user is snoring, Motion Pillow inflates an airbag in the pillow to move the sleeper’s head into the optimal sleeping posture. There are zero electric wires in the pillow and it has three levels of noise protection so the user doesn’t wake up when their head is being moved.
